Canadian Media is Atrocious at Covering the US Election

The best news providers are the ones that give it to you straight. Of course in a polarized, propagandized, politicized, partisan-filled media landscape (where the public’s disdain for paparazzi has proliferated to the press en masse) it’s pretty hard to find any credible new source that holds truth as its primary principle.

I could now veer into an existential philosophical tangent on the news media’s identity crisis, but I’d rather just surgically slice the bogus Canadian coverage of this American election.

    The media party’s vileness was confirmed for me when they started savaging Sarah Palin when she was McCain’s candidate selection for vice president. Notwithstanding that she was probably the most powerful Canada friendly American politician ever and she had seen off sleazy Washington based corruption as Governor of Alaska, that counted for nothing among our leftist parrots.

      That’s when it happened for me as well, watching all of the media attribute to Sarah Palin the line ‘I can see Russia from my back porch” when it came from Tina Fey’s Saturday Night Live sketch, so now everyone thinks Palin is an idiot.

      Agreed. It was vile

    Journalists no longer report ANYTHING; the REPEAT the narrative. So, they are NOT reporters, the ARE REPEATERS of the narrative.

      In another world they would be called propagandists.

        I think they used to be known as the steno pool.

          Not really. I was a propagandist for the Department of Education. That was a long time ago. Today it is a Ministry In the Ontario Government, we were classified as PROs (public relations officers) and in the federal government, they were known as ISOs (information service officers). Both departments were much sought after by aging (real) journalists because of the perks , the good hours and the all-important benefit and pension plans. The main purpose was to present political decisions (the minister’s) in edible form for public consumption and to shield the minister from too-inquisitive journalists. But that was yesterday. Today’s “journalists” don’t even know what questions to ask. They try to outdo each other by playing “gotcha”. But they’re all bucking for the same thing — a government job.

    What’s hard to tell? They ape the American liberal-leftist press just like Canadian liberal-leftists haven’t had an original idea in 75 years.

    That’s why BCF exists and flourishes.

    Check out this Canadian story about Trump. No mention of the 2nd Amendment as context. It’s journalistic malpractice.

      It’s not a Canadian press story, it is stamped “Associated Press”. And the Trump reference to “Second Amendment” was an earlier story.
