“Dreamy”? Media Party obsessed with Justin Trudeau’s funny socks, old yoga picture

Brian LilleyRebel Co-Founder
 

The sickening "love affair" between PM Justin Trudeau and Canada's Media Party is becoming unbearable.

The Globe & Mail is supposed to be the national paper of record, but it's turning into Buzzfeed with its photo galleries of Trudeau's colourful socks.

And why is the CBC running stories about a three year old photo of Justin doing a yoga pose?

No wonder the mainstream media is dying...

Sam Young: And what do you get from any other media source? Freedom from objective bias just like the CBC? Also, if what you are looking for is “feel good” stories, maybe you should abandon watching The Rebel and start reading Mother Goose or Dr. Seuss. Just a thought.

You are twisting up things that I have said. The delivery of news should of course be objective, serious, and free of ideological bias. That goes for all media, and not just the rebel.

Herein lies the big question. What value is there in all the bad comedy and one sidedness here? The answer is simple. There is no value.

You may be able to make a point with being less serious on some topics. Maybe it could work for some feel good story, but that does not happen very much here at the rebel. Instead, we get LOTS of sarcasm for serious issues getting covered.

Oh look, little boy socks. It all makes sense.

Jay Kelly: I haven’t written off the rebel. My comment was more directed at you and the fact the MSM is obsessing with every facet of ridiculous with Trudeau with all their money and also you have no problem discussing it. So why aren’t they allowed?

Sam Young you sound like a broken record. Apparently people don’t have a problem or they wouldn’t come here and your belief that news has to be ultra serious stories only all the time makes me wonder when was the last time you you actually watched the news on TV or read a newspaper. They have entertainment SECTIONS and sports SECTIONS homemaking SECTIONS etc. So for you to think that the Rebel is going to bow to your narrow minded whims is entertainment in a class of it’s own.

Why does the antidote to the media party being left, is to be cartoonishly right wing? I would rather the rebel just be objective, mature, and without any ideology distorting the presentation of news.

I’m ok with the dumb things that happen here because I don’t pay for it. But for the dumb things that happen on CBC it irritates me because I do pay for it.
This site can be on the exaggerating side but it’s all because of the constant left lean to everything coming from the CBC. The constant demonizing anyone Conservative while anyone Liberal gets a free pass and hugs and kisses and pinches on the cheek like Justin for his cutie pie socks. How faggy can the CBC get? It’s like they are up his ass constantly looking for golden eggs when there’s nothing there but soft shit. They come out with it all over their faces and smile, “Did you see the golden egg!?”.

If the rebel decided to make some improvements, then I might be motivated to help out financially. Maybe finally buy myself a copy of Ethical Oil, or an Ezra bobble head. Until then, I will keep vocalizing the parts of the rebel that need to be fixed.

Are you people actually okay with the dumb things that happen here? Do you like the petition of the week? The constant grovelling for money? Sheila always making the idiotic claim that the province of Alberta made the suicide rate go up thirty percent? Faith talking about rapefugees? The constant bitching about how the CBC got more government money than the Sun? Or the same sound bites of Trudeau and the basic dictatorship getting replayed over and over again?

And why is it that you people think that I am one person using three or four screen names? Are you that obsessed with the comments here, that you need to come up with these speculations?

Ron C sure gets mad when the liberal media is exposed for the ball washers they are LMAO!

Edward Jobin, don’t be too quick to write off The Rebel. It is still a new organization in a web-based medium that is constantly changing. The Rebel has built up a substantial readership and even has many paid subscribers.

While stories like this one about Trudeau’s socks may seem petty or amateurish, there are serious issues which The Rebel is starting to address. It has a market that is not being met elsewhere.

Some commenters on here just parrot trite lines from elsewhere, or like to let fly strings of juvenile expletives, but there are others who are seriously addressing real issues.

Well by the looks of that picture, JT has to pull up his socks, in more ways than one.

Sam Young: I don’t care where you come or go. What I don’t get is why you think that repeating your same worn out criticism is going to change anything. Do you really think they are going to change their format and staff to accommodate you or do you just like to whine?

Yep – hopefully Peter Mansbridge remembers to wipe his chin after leaving Bernie Trudeau’s office.

That’s what Ezra tells you to do every time you meet him in your back alley.

You talk crap asshole. You’re a disgusting person. FUCK OFF AND DIE ASSHOLE!!!!

Re: Ron Christensen, Sam Young, Jay Kelly

When I read the comments from these three people and then recall the childish comments they have posted on TheRebel, they have no room to insult any reporter/commentator on TheRebel.

These three (if indeed they really are three different people) are about as immature as socialist trolls come, except for maybe Sean Penson who is even worse. Not much for intellectual discourse from any of those four.

Bill, there does happen to be a lot of immaturity from some members of the rebel. People like Brian and Ezra come off as more credible when they are being serious, and I really wish they would stop the bad jokes. Seeing Brian try to sneak in a word under a fake cough was just painful to watch. Ezra going on his Gypsy rant was even worse. The rebel could be way better, if it dropped a lot of the silly things they do here.

You’re a vile irritant. Fuck off asshole!!!

Exactly the reason Canadians reject the viewpoints of Lilly dipshut and Dizzy Levant. Two immature little boys.

Sam Young wailed: “then I suggest he cut the clowns.”

Well, step up then and……Goodbye!!

And people like the clowns don’t get me to keep coming here. That is why you will never see me comment on any of their videos. Why Ezra keeps them here is beyond me. If Ezra is grovelling for money, then I suggest he cut the clowns.

Jay Kelly: They are pointing out the endless obsession of the MSM of all things Justin Trudeau no matter how old or trivial at the expense of offering serious government issues. I don’t need to remind you that you also commented on the story.

Sam Young commented – “Brian, you should not bitch about the rest of the news media needing to grow up, when the rebel itself needs a good dose of maturity.”

Seems “immature” journalism keeps you coming back to post here Sam.
commented 2016-04-01 00:21:19 -0400
Terrific commentary as usual Brian, (wink, nudge, see Sam’s comments below). One minor correction though:
The line “And why is the CBC running stories about a three year old photo of Justin doing a yoga pose?”
should read: “And why the hell is The Rebel running stories about a three year old photo of Justin doing a yoga pose?”
commented 2016-04-01 00:12:03 -0400
The socks and yoga pose must be that REAL NEWS the left wing trolls always tell us about.
commented 2016-03-31 23:19:24 -0400
Sam is right about 1 thing, those guys who do the “comedy” sketches are terrible. As to the rest of course the media does nothing but comment on lil jt’s appearance, the man and those connected to him, (including his ridiculous miss piggy look-a-like wife) lack any actual substance. I do love his “I will take anyone on who disagrees attitude” though and I wonder where I have to sign up for a shot at the title so to speak. Imagine a world where you could punch the prime minister in his dozy mouth, “Sigh!” what a paradise…

Really Jay, really, an MSM following the PM’s socks you try to defend. Wow.

@deborah – as long as we have brainless twits like Sean, Sam, Michal, Jay, and Ron C. – who are total worshiping knob-gobblers for anything the Libtards say or do – The MSM will indulge them! The hell with truth & reality.
Eh, all you BOYS mentioned above – just pay your Rebel dues and then we’ll know you are real people. Pathetically Stupid – but real.

Thanks for these tidbits BRIAN , it keeps reminding us how much they stink on a hot day !!!!! !!! Scouveredvered
