Panting Media at Justin Trudeau’s feet

An important job of the media is to pull back the curtain when politicians try to finesse the news, not cheerlead while they do it.

In that sense, much of the media failed spectacularly last Friday.

It was in their gushing coverage of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s supposed owning of an arrogant reporter, by giving a brilliant explanation of quantum computing at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Waterloo.

This to cheers and a standing ovation from amazed scientists.

The video version has gone viral. Except none of it is true.

    Why don’t they ask the genius how to balance the budget.

    • They should ask him to spell budget.

    • Who looks worse? Trudeau or the media?

      Trudeau is too stupid to understand.

      The media is too progressively obsessed to know their job.

    • He didn’t rehearse that answer.

  • John

    He’s now been voted ‘best-dressed’ by GQ magazine.

    So he’s got brains, he’s got looks, and he’s got the gonads of a Ken doll

    He was coached to spew a few terms you would hear in a Physics 101 class .
    Computers have Motherboards and Silicon Chips along with a Hard Drive that uses a Magnetic induction system to help Write information to the Oxide base Disk to influence the surface and make each Byte store a Binary code of 0 or 1’s that the CPU decodes based on the Operating system Language .

    We no longer have Wires and Switches via Analogue computers like ENIAC from the 1940’s . Plus he commented on Photon’s that are both a Particle and Wave which is why we have the new invention for a 3D Laser system to be able to store 400 times the DATA as the Blue Ray DVD disks .

    Quantum Physics is about finding the slightest change at the Atomic level because Quantum means ” How Much ” or to measure a change .

    I remember a song with a verse ” Don’t try to describe a KISS concert if you’ve never seen it , don’t ever forget that you just might end up being wrong “

    He was never a math Teacher, nor a teacher! No teaching credentials whatsoever! An assistant to a drama teacher. No teaching certificate in any jurisdiction.

      Snowboard instructor?

      • Clausewitz

        He probably sucked at that also. The only reason he would be at a resort would be to help attract all the 50 year old Cougars.

      He could go to sweden to pick them up and maybe his dream of being ravished by large swarthy middle-eastern men could come true.
