Leader-Post Is “Controversial”

Controversial is a code word for “racist”. That’s according to multiple tweets by the Leader-Post in Regina, Saskatchewan.

Reading into the linked article, there was a passage from Wikipedia, not credited to the Creative Commons encyclopedia.

Wikileaks: Assange Arrested in London

Assange has been a political prisoner for most of a decade and he still is one today, not a criminal hacker.

The Court Of Public Opinion

Was there ever a question that Chicago PD was not good?

Smollett, the actor, has had charges dropped. This is following when he was attacked by 2 men. Later the Twitterverse claimed that he’d paid the men to attack him for being gay, to raise his profile as an actor. The Chicago police eventually released the 2 men without charges, and instead charged Smollett with filing a false report with them. Now they’ve released Smollett, dropping the charges. What in the hell happened actually?

Here’s another case where police screwed up due to bias, and 2 people died as a result:

 

If Money Buys Things and Minds

You can find no shortage of angry Conservatives who are absolutely livid with the Prime Minister or Rachel Notley for not yet expanding a pipeline to the BC coast from Alberta. Why did they get so mad, and who paid for them to think this way?

There’s a BC “researcher” who claims it was because of a few million dollars gifted to Canadian charities from outside of Canada that swayed public opinion against new pipelines just enough to delay them. That might be possible, if money changes minds, and I think money absolutely can change minds.

So if you accept that money changes minds, how do you explain the minds changed by this money:

Remember, a billion dollars is a 1000 times more than a million. A trillion is a thousand times more than a billion.

If media is spreading this sort of public opinion, then who has the facts upon which we can make good, rational decisions? CBC?

Mansbridge, Murphy, Mesley, Cherry
What do they have in common?
CBC.
What else? They’ve all either supported climate change Denialism, or outright subscribe to that and have used their massive platforms to push it onto unwitting Canadians.

Who do I turn to for rational analysis of energy and economy news? CBC (surprising eh?), National Observer, Walking Eagle News. I threw that last one in there to see if you’re paying attention. Where do I not look? Financial Post (Postmedia), Sun (Postmedia), Leader-Post (Postmedia)… are you seeing a trend here?

#CPCracists Leader

About the time that the odious racist Kellie Lietch was contending for the leadership of the CPC with Maxime Bernier and the guy who kept Syrian refugees out of Canada for years to suffer in camps instead, the media dropped the ball. It’s been objectively clear for years now that the Conservative Party of Canada is now a party run by, and in many cases for, racists. Has the Main Stream Media let the average Canadian know that the Official Opposition party promotes hatred against Muslims?

CBC Picks Up Attack On Environment

This isn’t the first time I’ve written about Krause and her decade long Astroturf campaign against NGOs doing environmental work in Canada.

Classic dirty tricks.
“If Krause were seeking a fair answer, she’d quickly learn that both investment dollars and philanthropic dollars cross borders all the time. There isn’t anything special or surprising about environmental groups receiving funding from U.S. foundations that share their goals — especially when the increasingly global nature of environmental challenges, particularly climate change, is taken into consideration.”

P.S. Someone in 2013 was getting documents from CBC:
