In the Newspaper Biz there's a thing called "Middle Market."

$1:
A middle-market newspaper is one that attempts to cater to readers who want some entertainment from their newspaper as well as the coverage of important news events. Middle-market status is the halfway point of a three-level continuum of journalistic seriousness; uppermarket newspapers generally cover hard news and down-market newspapers favor sensationalist stories. In the United Kingdom, since the demise of Today (1986–95), the only national middle-market papers are the Daily Mail and the Daily Express, distinguishable by their black-top masthead (both use the easy-to-carry tabloid paper size), as opposed to the red-top mastheads of down-market tabloids. The best known American mid-market papers are USA Today, the Chicago Sun-Times, and the New York Daily News.[1]


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Middle-market_newspaper

You would find the stories there that you would find in other media, but you might also have to wade through crap that would not be hard news. For example we might have to scroll quickly past the latest gossip about the Kardashians, or say not click this one: "Salesman roasted to death on a poolside sunbed on first day of his Ibiza holiday as temperatures soared to 90F".

But you would also hear news stories you would not hear from the media of what Progressives call "reputable media". Stories like say..."EXCLUSIVE - Afghan migrants who attacked pensioners in THAT shocking train video were denied asylum after arriving four years ago... but Germany says it's 'too dangerous' to send them home"

Understand though, our Regressive Progressive friends do not appear to be saying they have anything like evidence saying such a story is false. They don't. We know they can't outright claim it, because they don't have such evidence. If they did, they would produce it.

So what is the objection to middle market then?

I suggest it is not just that they do not want you having access to information their media would like to keep from you. I am beginning to think they also worry about the comparison. They would like to present themselves as the gold standard keepers of the truth. Therefore all other knowledge must be demonized and marginalized to prevent comparison by keeping the "bad example" isolated a la Alinsky. Ultimately they would prefer competition censored but they'll settle for demonization in isolation. They fear the true comparison.

There are many problems with that idea of gold standard media. Here's the main objection I have to it. It's bullshit. There is no gold standard reputable media.

I could explain why that's so, but I'll do better. I'll do something for you that a Progressive would not. I'll present support for my theory.

We'll use the CBC as an example. Near as I can figure, in Canada, that's their gold standard.

I'll be using examples from sources that would not necessarily meet a prog standard of reputable. Some of my examples will be mainstream media, but some might be say activist sources with axes to grind. I believe one is a law firm that won a case against the CBC and presented the report of it as news, but really it's more an ad.

I suggest that doesn't matter, because I believe we here our capable of separating the wheat from the chaff so to speak as regards what's credible. A Regressive either doesn't know that or doesn't want you to know it. So they will lay false claim to the high road, while they ignore the bulk of evidence and instead isolate some tiny critique to present it as the totality of truth. This is supposed to imply everything not from their approved sources is false, you see.

I suggest the cumulative evidence will present the more persuasive fact of who the real lying weasels are in the world of media.

So hang on for a bit and we'll begin to explore the world of Journalistic integrity and the CBC.

Bias and Lack of Journalistic integrity in the CBC





It’s said that the most egregious form of media bias, is a bias of omission. We'll get to that and other dirty tricks, but let's start here:

CBC Bias to Liberals

Friends of Canadian Broadcasting claims the Liberals double-crossed the CBC after promising lots of dough in the 1997 election. Instead -

“During the last seven years, Prime Minister Chrétien’s government has loaded up the CBC’s Board of Directors with partisan appointments whose key credential seems to be the Liberal membership card in their wallets. “

Helluva post, Fiddy! [B-o]

I guess the thing for me is that journalism, like climate science, is so corrupted by political agendas (left, right, insane) that it is no longer trustworthy.

Update

Most Canadians are skeptics, and CBC accidentally says so, then “edits” story

$1:
Oops! CBC (the Canadian version of the BBC and ABC) have been caught out editing a story to make it more politically correct. CBC’s political bias is accidentally on display. The original message revealed a sacred truth that must not be spoken. How would most Canadians feel about being forced to pay money to change the weather if they knew most other Canadians also thought it was a waste of billions? As far as I can tell, the updated version was a complete rewrite of the first half of the article. There appear to be a lot of changes.

The unsurprising news is that 56% of Canadians are skeptics – which is very similar to all other surveys which show that 62% of Brits are 62% skeptical. As are 54% of Australians. Fully third of the US are so skeptical they think it’s a total hoax.

The survey:

Is Earth getting warmer mostly because of human activities? 56% say NO.

Amazingly 39% of Canadians said the next question that they don’t think humans are even partially responsible.

Earth is getting warmer partly or mostly because of human activities. 39% say NO.

So CBC initially wrote a headline which said this:

Climate change: Majority of Canadians don’t believe it’s caused by humans

But thou mayst never admit that skeptics are the majority lest the masses awaken. Groupthink is so influential! So the headline was rapidly changed to an ambiguous muddy wording:

Updated: Canadians divided over human role in climate change, study suggests




CBC makes excuses you can find at article. Judge for yourself if they hold up.

The boy's (oh sorry, the non gender specific individuals) at Canada's version of "Central Television" are having a bad week aren't they. ROTFL

Canada's network lying to the people it's supposed to be representing who would have thought. :roll: It's time we pulled the plug on this giant manipulative shower because it isn't representing "ALL" Canadians by pushing it's and the Liberal Parties political and social agenda's.

Disgusting.

The fact that anyone in Canada can see this on their TV without paying for cable, satellite or specialty channel fees is what makes this Canada. The fact you don't "get it" differentiates us from the US. Old enough to remember jokes like Pat Paulsen for President? Or how the mere fear of gov't regulatory reprisals made the private network that show was on cancel it?
The state doesn't control the message on CBC.

Sorry but that is utter bullshit. The idea of a radio and TV network for "all" Canadians may have been a great idea when it started but decades of political interference and nepotism have turned it into nothing more than a mouthpiece for the state.

$1:
1951
The Massey Commission tables its report. It recommends greater state involvement in nurturing cultural and intellectual programming and notes that because the radio spectrum is a public domain, it should continue to be controlled by the state. The commission also rejects the idea of an independent regulatory authority for all Canadian broadcasters. However, it does state that the services of private broadcasters are, like the CBC, good for the national interest and part of a "single system" of broadcasting. The commission also states that one major problem, the financial situation of the CBC, can be resolved by giving the Corporation more funds via a statutory grant. Regarding TV, the Massey Commission states it wants a system designed to serve "Canadian needs" and suggests that no private broadcasters be given licences until the CBC starts its own programming - effectively granting control of TV to the CBC. However, they also propose that Canadians adopt the technical television standards of the United States. This then allows Canadian households to pick up US broadcasting signals in addition to Canadian ones.

In accordance with the Massey Commission suggestions, the Broadcasting Act is amended so that the CBC can receive a statutory grant for five years.


Well that and the Liberal Gov't giving them the mandate to license and regulate radio, television in Canada during it's formative years. But if anyone thinks it's only been the mouthpiece for the Liberals they'd be dead wrong. Although, the Liberals have quite obviously taken a page from the old Conservative Party when using the CRBC/CBC to further their political views.

$1:
1935
The CRBC again faces controversy during the 1935 federal elections when it is accused of being partisan in favour of the Conservatives after a series of unidentified paid political advertisements are broadcast.

1936
The New Liberal government is led by PM Mackenzie King who appoints C.D. Howe as the Minister responsible for broadcasting. In March, they set up a new parliamentary committee on radio broadcasting that looks into the overall performance of the CRBC.

On May 26th, the committee tables its report which reiterates much of the original Aird Report. It advocates: a) the creation of a national corporation to oversee public broadcasting; b) making this corporation the regulatory authority over broadcasting, and c) greater co-operation between this new public corporation and private radio stations

In June, Howe introduces new legislation to create a new broadcasting agency and dissolve the CRBC. The Canadian Broadcasting Act becomes law on June 23rd and creates the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, whose mandate is to establish "a national broadcasting service." The CBC becomes the pre-eminent radio broadcaster in Canada and has considerable regulatory powers. For example, the CBC is in charge of license renewals and private station set-ups and mergers. It is also responsible for producing and broadcasting programs. Its first General Manager is Gladstone Murray.


http://www.broadcasting-history.ca/inde ... ation.html

The CBC is a dinosaur that should have been turned into oil decades ago because it lost all it's objectivity and journalistic integrity in 1935 when they shilled for the Conservatives and that trend continues to this day.

I don't like it because it's shit programming followed by shit newscasts and it pretends it's what Canadians want. This Canadian, and many more, just wishes it would sink or swim without sucking on the public teat.

Those who rave about it's excellent programming surely wouldn't mind paying a little more to keep it going. :lol:

It isn't as much a mouthpiece for the state as much as it is specifically an organ for the Liberal Party and, to a lesser extent, the NDP.

You're absolutely correct. [B-o]

So isn't it time to cut the bullshit and stop trying to convince the masses that it's a network for all Canadians because as it stands now it's nothing more than a money pit which shills for the Liberal Gov't of the day and has since the Mackenzie King administration.
