As the federal election is heating up, the partisan bias of Canadian media is deservedly coming under a microscope. Part of it is personal on the part of Journalists like Robyn Urback and part of it is because Postmedia is owned by a U.S. Hedge Fund and has endorsed conservative candidates in Provincial and Federal elections, no matter if they deserve it or not.
With their click-bait titles and false both-sideism coverage, Mainstream Media (MSM) have become whores to the almighty $. Canada is becoming Trumpland’s vassal.
The meme best describes what’s happening with our MSM today. They saw how lucrative covering Trump’s lies, fear-mongering, and dog-whistles were and they have succumbed to reproducing the same formula that made U.S. media buckets of money while allowing Conservative lies to go unchallenged!
“Can we all take a moment to appreciate how resoundingly partisan @RobynUrback is? Like that time she criticized Catherine McKenna for accusing Andrew Scheer of being deceitful regarding climate change? Where do I start? “
“April 2018: Says climate change plan is coming. October 2018: Says Climate Change plan is still coming. January 2019: Says Climate Change Plan coming “before election”. I am beginning to think that perhaps Andrew Scheer IS being dishonest.
