A disturbing step towards the further corruption of the elitist establishment press.
The Trudeau government will soon reveal the ‘state approved’ media that will be eligible for the dangerous $600 MILLION taxpayer-funded bailout.
According to Blackrocks Reporter, “Federal agencies will publish an A-list of newspapers and websites deemed reliable under a multi-million dollar subsidy program, the Department of Finance yesterday told the Senate national finance committee. Subsidies to federally-approved news media invite government meddling in a free press, cautioned one senator.”
And if there was any doubt that the government is directly controlling this process, “An unnamed cabinet-appointed group will decide which media qualify for subsidies. “The government will decide whether or not to change certain criteria,” said Maude Lavoie, Finance Canada director general of business tax programs.”
So, partisan cabinet members of the Liberal Party will decide which media is ‘approved’ and gets a bunch of tax dollars.
That is deeply disturbing.
The establishment media is already biased, and imagine how much more biased it will be when it feels that survival depends on repeating the government propaganda line in order to qualify for bailout money.
As a result of this, the corruption of the establishment media will accelerate, and it will be tougher and tougher for Canadians to find the truth amid the sea of corrupt government lies.
That’s why websites that remain independent of government control like SpencerFernando.com are so important, and why we need to stand together against Trudeau’s media bailout by supporting independent Canadian voices.
