The news was never real. Just bullshit propaganda put out by who has the money.

That's why I think CBC is important.

Sure, they are probably going to be left of center more often then not, as they rely on government spending.

But it's good to have a source accountable to taxpayers to counter all the privately owned media sources.

There is real journalism happening all around you. But you disregard it and call it 'liberal'.

You can tell the difference, by who shows you what happened, and sometimes gives background. But where real journalism and yellow journalism differ is when they try to explain 'what this means' to you. Opinion is not news.

As the article states, 'transparency' is key to trust in journalism. Also linked in the article are how lost faith in the US media has caused a loss of trust in most media.

And it's ironic that the most transparent and trusted news sources are the ones the Right calls 'fake', and the ones proven to post outright lies are the ones you trust. :idea:

If you meant a source accountable to their Liberal masters then okay. :|

I do too, in general. A $600 million giveaway to other Canadian media though kind of obliterates any pretense that the current government or the Liberal Party in specific would be held to the same kind of account that anyone to the right of them usually is. In a lot of ways this is really no different than American media being directed in what they can and can't cover in order not to piss off the money behind them.

If this were even remotely true, then why the SNC Lavalin and Blackface scandals?

The media might get some tax breaks, but they are not required to rein in their journalistic standards to receive them.

There's always a sense with Canadian media that when the Liberals fuck up it's a major chore for the reporters to have to cover it. For example the media is still flipping out today, nearly two months after the election, over what Scheer believes about abortion. The blackface, and SNC too, are now essentially dead issues that have been effectively forgiven altogether. Doesn't sound too responsible to me, that Trudeau's obvious character flaws that affect his leadership have been put to rest when they should still be as front-and-center in reporting. If it's well-justified in the US with the media keeping Trump's odious personality in the spotlight then the same should absolutely be going on in Canada with Trudeau.

Scheer is still under fire because he is not being clear about his views.

Trudeau came forward, admitted his fuckups and we moved on.

But the mainstream media, in both cases, reported things exactly as they were. There were no embellishments, there was no attempt to read any deeper meanings into the story in order to flog it in the endless 24 hour news cycle. And it was also no attempt to gloss over or bury these stories because of partisanship. They were fully sussed out, and explored.

No one has forgotten his flaws. We are waiting to se if they re-appear. Everyone who genuinely apologizes for bad behavior get the chance to earn redemption. But that isn't on the media, that is on us. The media is just a reflection of societies morals, it shouldn't be the dispensary of those morals.

Trump earns his place in the daily news through his ongoing actions. Trudeau does not. What Canadians won't put up with in our media is the endless assassination of a public figure that eventually claims their career in order to feed the 24 hour news beast.

Canadian media, to it's credit, didn't pull a FOX News trick of identifying everyone else in the black/brown face photos and digging dirt on them in order to reflect it back on Trudeau. That's the difference between real journalists and yellow journalism.
