French security services are looking into whether Russian outlets boosted hashtags promoting the protests, Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said in a Sunday local radio interview. His comments come after reports showed that 600 Twitter accounts pushed the anti-carbon tax protests.
Anti-carbon tax protests would have ended when the carbon tax was rescinded.
“Happy Birthday, Muhammad,” the New York Times proclaimed happily last Tuesday in a propaganda piece by Haroon Moghul, the author of a book confidently entitled How to Be a Muslim. I’d say it was a new low for the Times if the Gray Lady didn’t keep stooping lower every day.
The state sponsored media outlet NDR is featuring a police show called Polizeiruf 110 “Police call 911”. In the show the lead actress, a female officer is shown in her office with many left-wing symbols.
The Antifa flag is clearly visible but that is not all. In the office a rainbow flag, an exit from nuclear energy, FCK NZS and FCK AfD (short for F*ck Nazis and F*ck AfD) stickers can be seen.
The federal government is expected to lay out fresh plans next week to support Canada’s struggling news industry.

Trudeau was deliberately posed on the far left (ha!) so he can be cropped out easily.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau told a press freedom event in Paris Sunday that one of the bulwarks protecting democratic governments from being undermined is also an institution under stress — a free-thinking, robust media.
Being in France, he must have been referring to the Charlie Hebdo attack, right?
Former first lady Michelle Obama blasts President Donald Trump in her new book, recalling how she reacted in shock the night she learned he would replace her husband in the Oval Office and tried to ‘block it all out’.
Two separate parliamentary committees, in the UK and Canada, have issued an unprecedented international joint summons for Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg to appear before them.
The committees are investigating the impact of online disinformation on democratic processes and want Zuckerberg to answer questions related to the Cambridge Analytica-Facebook user data misuse scandal, which both have been probing this year.
More broadly, they are also seeking greater detail about Facebook’s digital policies and information governance practices — not least, in light of fresh data breaches — as they continue to investigate the democratic impacts and economic incentives related to the spread of online disinformation via social media platforms.
