Trudeau Government Likely To Give More Taxpayer Money To Establishment Media

Measures to ‘help’ the ‘news industry’ are expected in the upcoming economic statement.

The Trudeau government is expected to exert more government leverage over the establishment media, by spending more taxpayer dollars on the ‘news industry’ in the upcoming economic statement.

The statement will be released on Wednesday, and as noted by the CP “The federal government is expected to lay out fresh plans next week to support Canada’s struggling news industry. The measures, expected in Finance Minister Bill Morneau’s fall economic statement Wednesday, will be designed to help journalism remain viable after years of shrinking advertising revenues.”

Of course, one reason much of the establishment media is struggling is because people can see through the horrendous bias of much of the media.

We saw that most recently as the head of Unifor – which represents over 10,000 media workers – pledged to oppose Andrew Scheer and defeat the Conservatives in the next election.

Obviously, there can be no trust in the establishment media when their workers are beholden to a union attempting to destroy the main opposition party and help the Liberals.

The Trudeau Liberals have already announced $50 million in taxpayer funding for the media. This funding makes the media beholden to the government – and particularly to the Liberals. Since they know that the Conservatives are less likely to spend taxpayer money on media bailouts, the media has a financial incentive to defeat the Conservatives and elect Liberals.

So, with that media bailout money set to increase, the bias will get even worse, and the media will become less of a safeguard for democracy and more of a mouthpiece for the state.

The only rebuttal available to Scheer, is to promise to double the bribe to the media if elected. The msm is going all out for Justin, their ideological soul mate, so the only hope for some positive reportage for Scheer is if he out-bribes them. It’s only taxpayer’s money, after all.

Just a thought: perhaps Andrew could promise senior members of the msm a Senate seat IF they perform up to par.

Well this news about Trudeau funding the already Liberal biased mainstream media, doesn’t really come as any real surprise, since we already have government TV, the CBC. Now we will have government news. Welcome to the Brave New World of George Orwell’s 1984, where we will told to believe what the ministry of truth and news commands us all to accept as the new independent and trusted (not) source of news and information. If any of the media or writers in the news have any integrity and self respect left at all, they would resign now and go independent before… Read more »

Turdeau is nothing more than a common thief

Shhhh! The hush money paid reporters are keeping this very very quiet from the public. We all know that the liberal party have been stealing from the public for decades but the media think that we don’t know anything. They are hoping that we can easily be influence by Trudeau’s lies to make their work easy for them, BUT WE TOO SMART TO FALL INTO THEIR WEB TRAP.

What reporters? They need money for what. To repeat the same deadbeat stories on Pres. Trump, Conservatives, and any other people who don’t follow their liberal gov?
Real reporters report real stories and no amount of ‘hush’ money is going to stop them.

Reporters have gone to prison for reporting the truth And there are other reporters who will avoid the truth and be bought for their silence.

Giving our tax dollars to these media opinion people pretending to be news anchors and journalists will not convince ordinary Canadians to vote Trudeau for re-election. Many of these media people have become advocates and promote their opinions as news. Ordinary Canadians do NOT like the media telling us what to do. In spite of The Red Star (Toronto Star) Liberal biased journalists, Ontario voters decimated the Prov. Liberals. Ontarians will do the same to Trudeau’s Liberal gov’t.

Lieing always catches up to the liers , and the Crooked CBC are the instigators of Canada’s fake liberal daily news . PUT… Read more »

Does anybody else find it strange that when Trudeau was in France he went on and on about the poor media yada yada yada. Then out of the blue Dias comes out with his tresons statement and in between the Chinese stop the media from attending a meeting with our chief bankrupter Morneu? There up to something just not sure yet.
