Federal fall update expected to offer more support for struggling news industry

The federal government is expected to lay out fresh plans next week to support Canada’s struggling news industry.

The measures, expected in Finance Minister Bill Morneau’s fall economic statement Wednesday, will be designed to help journalism remain viable after years of shrinking advertising revenues.

The payoffs are political rewards as well as a reason for fealty to the Trudeau administration. Media outlets are expected to continue promoting the liberal brand and blacklist any stories unflattering to Imam Trudeau, his liberal horde, and his band of civilization-destroying Muslims as well.

I may have um made up that last bit.
