In a bizarre tweet on Thursday, CBC journalist Rosemary Barton exclaimed "Huzzah!" in response to the news that Trudeau's Liberal Party has surged in polls due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Canadian political Twitter was quick to react to Barton's inappropriate and apparently partisan cheer. Carleton MP Pierre Poilievre simply tweeted "Huzzah?"

Twitter user @RealDrRoy tweeted: "I know you are the most biased journalist in Canada. Thanks for proving it yet again."

Barton tried to clean up her mess by tweeting a clarification that she simply jsut loves the poll tracker itself and not the favourable result for Trudeau: "To be clear this is a huzzah about the poll tracker which I love and NOT the result.  I have no interest in the results. But I do [heart] @EricGrenierCBC."

Barton has  been at the centre of other controversies regarding her bias. She famously took a selfie with Justin Trudeau that was roundly mocked around the country, and she was a plaintiff in a lawsuit by the CBC against the Conservative Party during the last election.
