It’s obvious that much of the elitist media wants either Kathleen Wynne or Andrea Horwath to win.
The media used to be far less biased. However, with media organizations increasingly concentrated in a few cities, a smaller and smaller range of perspectives are being heard.
And among the perspectives being ignored the most are the views of everyday citizens.
This increased bias has benefited Liberal left-wing elites, while working against Conservatives and common sense candidates.
Now, that’s exactly what we’re seeing in the Ontario election, as media coverage has taken a biased, anti-Doug Ford turn.
That can be seen in the overall coverage, and even more so in how a reporter tried asking a “gotcha question” which that same reporter hasn’t asked other leaders:

The reporter was clearly looking to create their own news, rather than report the news. Notice how the question sounds like something one of Ford’s opponents would have asked, rather than a usual question.
This is why Ford is totally justified in producing his own videos and bypassing the elitist media.
What makes this all more interesting is the fact that Ford still leads in the polls, despite much of the media trying to take him down.
That’s because an increasing number of people can see past the left-wing bias of the media, and are refusing to be manipulated.
In fairness, much of this bias is probably not something some of the media is even aware of. I’ve worked for different newspapers in the past, and the truth is that most journalists try to be fair, but most journalists also have views that skew far to the left of the average person. As a result, there is a bias that sneaks out in many ways, both subtle and obvious, and it’s a bias that almost always goes against Conservatives and benefits the Liberals and the NDP.
What this all means is that Ford is not only running against the Liberals and NDP, he’s also running against the media in many ways.
Because of that, the voices of the grassroots are more important than ever. With the elites at the top fighting to stop the Ford PCs, it will take an electoral uprising by voters to bring Ontario’s governance back into reality.
