Trudeau Liberals Slammed For Corrupt Media Bailout Plan

Immense amount of criticism for scheme to give pro-Liberal groups power to pick who gets media bailout.

The Trudeau Liberals are being slammed for their corrupt plan to bailout the establishment media.

The criticism has escalated following the announcement of the groups that will help choose who gets the bailout money.

After people saw that the groups were Liberal-friendly, including Unifor (who are actively campaigning against the Conservatives), the criticism surged.

Below, you can see what people are saying:

“This is actually worse than anyone could have imagined. An “independent body” staffed entirely by unions and industry lobbyists. What a disaster.”

“What is the minister thinking? If your sole ambition was to completely discredit the government’s bailout, this is how you would proceed.”

“It is quite clear now, if it was not already: this is the most serious threat to the independence of the press in this country in decades.”

“The optics of journalism associations and unions deciding who picks the recipients of government aid for journalism are getting very queasy.”

“Unifor is now in charge of handing out government money to news companies they deem worthy. Unifor will register as a third party advertiser during the upcoming federal election. Unifor has stated its opposition to the Conservative Party. This is the corruption of democracy.”

“I’d like to take this time to remind everyone that most Canadian organizations with “journalists” or “media” in the title are populated solely by embittered activist burnouts with an axe to grind. I’m sure their stewardship of a giant pile of money will be equitable.”

“I don’t know what I expected. I expected it to be bad. This is way worse.”

Whatever credibility the establishment media may have had left is being shattered, and the centralization of power by the Trudeau government is reaching horrible new heights.

Canadians must stand against this. It cannot be allowed.
