Former Ontario PC leader Patrick Brown has harsh words for CTV.
He says quote, "You lied. You defamed me," in a Facebook post today (Wednesday) after the broadcaster reported one of the women who accused Brown of sexual misconduct admitted she was not underage at the time of the alleged incident.
Brown also says, "CTV News fabricated a malicious and false report about me from two anonymous accusers". "The significance of this changed story is monumental."
Brown also says "If you truly stand by your allegations, then I urge you to contact Barrie police and have them lay charges."
CTV News said it stands by its reporting.
The network's communcations director Matthew Garrow said that Patrick Brown's allegations regarding CTV's reporting is false.
Garrow went on to say that Brown's attack on CTV's journalist practices are ground and wrong, adding CTV News continues to ask Patrick Brown if he thinks the two women accusing him of sexual misconduct are lying.
