Because a large, unkempt, bearded man aggressively approaching Chrystia Freeland and swearing at her is just like an actual journalist insisting that Pierre Poilievre answer questions at his own press conference.
Gonna be a long and ugly three years.
P.S. If you haven't figured out that Poilievre is now working closely with Rebel News and operating straight out of their playbook, there's nothing I can do to help you. It's only a matter of time before Skippy begins referring demeaningly to the "Media Party." You read it here first.
BONUS TRACK: It is moderately amusing to watch Rebel News twist its nutsack in knots over the appalling lack of decorum from David Akin, given that Der Rebel's hacks absolutely specialize in ambush journalism and angry confrontation, to the point where one of its (ex-)hacks once chased climate activist Greta Thunberg down a hotel hallway:
More to the point, one need only paw through old Rebel posts to see where its junior high school student reporters openly brag about how they "ambushed" someone, or "confronted" someone, or "surprised" someone. So when it comes to journalists pushing back against an evasive weasel like Pierre Poilievre, Ezra and his crew of hatchet job journos might want to sit this one out.
HERE'S A THOUGHT: Given the blatantly chummy relationship between Poilievre and Rebel News, perhaps some enterprising journo can ask Skippy something along the lines of, "Has your campaign purchased any product or service from Rebel News, or in any way engaged with them financially in exchange for favourable news coverage?"
After all, one is reminded of that time when Eva Braun^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^HKellie Leitch was exposed as to having shoveled tens of thousands in Rebel's direction at the same time she was getting gaggingly fawning and positive coverage from Ezra and his minions:
How about it, David Akin? Give it a shot. They don't like you, anyway. (Oh, and ask Skippy how his throbbing hard-on for cryptocurrency is working out. I dare you.)
I'M DYING HERE.
