REVEALED: Globe "held back explosive information" on election day that "tipped the scale" for Trudeau

Brian LilleyRebel Co-Founder
 

The Globe and Mail has been caught holding back a story in order to help Justin Trudeau and the Liberals win last week’s election and the paper is actually defending what they did.

In boxing it's called throwing the fight or taking a fall and it can be done in all kinds of ways, like by not trying that hard. The Chicago White Sox famously did that in 1919 taking money from gamblers to throw the game.

The Globe and Mail didn't take money from gamblers but their decision to hold off on a major political story due to concerns it would affect the election shows they were willing to tip the scales for the federal Liberals.

I know the Globe endorsed the Conservatives. The endorsement ordered by owner David Thompson to back the re-election of the Conservatives, resulted in a one time editorial that was a bizarre endorsement explaining why the Conservatives were worthy of re-election but Stephen Harper was not.

A one off editorial from the owner does not undo the daily drip of media bias and outright campaigning that appears on the front pages and political pages. I talked about media bias and told you about our poll questions last week. More on that in a minute but in my view, this helps prove media bias in favour of the Liberals.

In deciding not to tell readers, and voters in Ontario, about the multi-million dollar pay off from the Ontario Liberals to the province's teacher's unions because they were afraid of interfering in the election, the Globe has done just that, they interfered.

The Globe sat on a bombshell of a story, that Kathleen Wynne’s government was paying off the teacher’s unions with special payments to defray negotiating costs and funnelling money from one fund – money designated to help struggling students graduate – and using that money to pay for extra raises for teachers.

None of this was known to the public.

Over the coming days the Globe followed up with more stories, revealing that it wasn’t just one teacher's union but several that got these special payouts. The total $3.7 million, and all of it paid out without receipts or documentation according to Education Minister Liz Sandals who responded to questions about what this money paid for by saying, “We know what pizza costs.”

So how does The Globe sitting on this constitute them tipping the scales for Justin Trudeau?

The story was ready before election day and they held it so that it would not hurt Justin and the Liberals. But let’s believe Globe Public Editor Sylvia Stead who wrote in defence of holding it, “In my view, if Ontario was voting that day for its own government, there would be no question the story should be published. Voters need to know as much key information as can be provided to inform their vote. I agree that this was clearly a separate level of government and a provincial not a federal issue.”

Interesting take.

Kathleen Wynne was a constant figure on the campaign trail with Justin Trudeau in Ontario. She and her government were active players in the federal election even into the last days as she promised voters that if Trudeau were elected then she might not go ahead with her Ontario Pension Plan because Justin would take care of the whole country. She’s since gone back on that promise but that isn’t pertinent to this story.

MS. Stead can't say that federal and provincial politics are completely separate. She knew, or should have known, how active Wynne was. And what about all the people from Queen’s Park, from Wynne’s Team that formed the basis of Trudeau’s campaign team?

If she didn’t know about that then Globe National Editor Dennis Choquette should have known but he said, like Stead, that these were two different issues.

“Voters were not being asked to elect a provincial government, so I did not feel that we were withholding essential information that could inform their decision at the polls. We did risk our appearance of neutrality, however, were we to have published on Election Day,” Mr. Choquette said.

What you were withholding Mr. Choquette was that Justin Trudeau’s key ally, cheerleader and mentor was caught using taxpayer’s money to pay off her friends. Just like the Liberals of old.

Perhaps you worried that exposing this on election day might have dampened some enthusiasm for your man Justin? Perhaps you worried that voters hearing about Liberals being up to their same old ways might have paused?

Here is the reality.

By election day I doubt that your story would have had time to make a big enough impact to change the outcome in any significant way.

But what your actions have done is shown you to be anything but neutral. You and your team Mr. Choquette held back information, explosive information and you put your hands on the scale to ensure they tipped only for Justin.

Media Party. Plain and simple.

After I announced our poll on media bias I had plenty of people tell me that I am biased, that The Rebel is.

Let me explain the difference.

At The Rebel we're open about who we are, what we stand for and where we're coming from. That helps inform how you view our work. The Globe, and other media outlets claim to be neutral when they are anything but. They are active, partisan players. Did you know that the union representing Globe and Mail reporters is Unifor? Did you know that Unifor actively pushed all of its members to vote for anybody but the Conservatives? Did you know that Unifor was a registered third party in this election and spent piles of money attacking Stephen Harper and the Conservatives exclusively? That is the union of Globe reporters. Do you think they are immune to the constant barrage of anti-Harper missives from their union?

We will have our poll on media bias and the media unions in a few days.

If you want to kick in and help pay for the poll then please, hit the donation button. Every few dollars helps. $10, $15, $50 and if you cannot donate then please spread the word by sharing this page, this video.

We don’t get the billion dollar subsidy like CBC and unlike the unions, we can’t forcibly take money from you to pay to spread our views.

I’ll have the results from those polling questions and report back with them in a few days time.

Thanks for watching and remember, I’m on your side.

Who said Harper had to go? The 99-seats that the conservatives won, call bs on that. The only way the Liberals won, is do to the illegal inference by the UN, the Unions (including the MSM) who were bought and paid for by Winnie and the UN, and money was funneled through groups like Idle No More, Leadnow, and many others. What a lie, and so many fell for it!

Just a couple of things, first very few people pay any attention to news papers, there is a thing called Google, TV news is all but gone the way of the Dodo bird,and secondly people voted against Harper . Harper had to go and he went. As to who was to take his place was not important just as long as he was removed. The simplest election ever. It had nothing to do with Liberals or New Democrats they were just names on a ballot.

RON VOSS, for HYACINTH and others, bares repeating:
DONALD ALLAN, you have correctly described his objective using a sports analogy, “In football they call it flooding the zone. And that is exactly what this obnoxious Jimmy Da Silva is trying to accomplish with his constant drivel of commentaries, a few of which have contained potty language which in itself is an indication of his station in life.” You then provided the appropiate response or remedy, “Otherwise we can all just totally ignore the moron.”

What shocks me most is that there are Candians out there who actually still ‘believe in’ mainstream media outlets. I wrote them off ages ago. They’re corrupt. They’re manipulative. They’re biased. And they are destructive to the country. The mainstream media ISN’T a news source. They are political activists. And unless a) they’re stopped, or b) Candians wake the hell up and stop paying any attention to these thugs, they will collapse the entire country.

Keep on deflecting.

At least there are intelligent and reasonable women here like Erin and Joan – to make up for miserable and useless women like Hyacinth and Liza.

“Sucks to be you.”
Yes Jimmy dear, keep showing everyone your true IQ level. But then again, what can one expect from a boy that refuses to take the medication that his doctor prescribed for him. Tsk tsk, you really should take your meds as prescribed.

Hyacinth,

I don’t think that at all. Like with Terry – this is an incredibly entertaining place and discussing and debate is good thing.

Your problem is that you want The Rebel to just be a place where everyone just agrees with each other and happily laps up Ezra’s every word – a paradise for batshit crazy conservatives, where no one is questioned or challenged.

This is the difference between you and a conservative like Erin – who has valued what Terry and I bring to The Rebel.

I think it says everything about the kind of person you are in that you are both conservatives AND women – but only Erin is reasonable, sensible and logical.

Sucks to be you.

This is a very sleazy bit of business. The story would have affected Ontario voters and Globe’s readership would have blown it’s stack and the backlash would have been spectacular. Now we have Trudeau and Wynne scheduled to meet privately and reporters and journalists will not be able to ask any questions about it. So fibbery and a load of BS. This should be a signal to mainstream media that they do not have open access like they thought.

So, has everyone figured out the pattern that is being used against democracies? If you think what was done to our PM Harper, is an isolated case, then you are sadly mistaken. We have been hearing the rumours for sometime now, you know the rumours that there is “white privileged?” Now that they have taken out our conservative PM, now you will see them focus more on white people, and the need to demonize us, so that they can keep fanning the flames of hatred. They need to continue with their demonization of normal people, so that they can continue to strip us of our rights. All those who were incited to hate the best PM that our country has ever had, will now have to pay too. And I don’t want to hear any sniveling about it, you attacked an innocent man, based on the lies that the press continually put forward as the truth. All paid for be that demon lead organization, the UN.

“Answer: Jimmy suffers from a narcissistic personality disorder and somehow equates that posting on The Rebel is his duty. He perceives The Rebel as a bastion of evil that he must eradicate.” As others have suggested, I think he is a paid troll by lefty media, possibly CBC. The rest of us have jobs and come here sporadically. Trolls seem to live on this site!

“Jimmy, you really have something up your ass about the Rebel”
“The Rebel is going to be what the Rebel is going to be and your bitch, whining and complaining is not going to influence them to change”

The question was asked before by others and worth repeating:
Question: If Jimmy hates The Rebel and everything about it so much why is he posting 24/7 on most of the articles?

Answer: Jimmy suffers from a narcissistic personality disorder and somehow equates that posting on The Rebel is his duty. He perceives The Rebel as a bastion of evil that he must eradicate.

Well you know Jimmy, there is something of a difference here, that being that this story is true and that it exemplifies the easy ride that the left leaning media gives left leaning politicians, I guess we will never know, but does anyone think they would have been so concerned about tainting an election if this was a conservative scandal? Stupid people might.
commented 2015-10-27 02:45:44 -0400
A delay in publishing a story is nothing much. The mainstream media has blacked out news on some subjects entirely. The news that legislation to make Ontario officially bilingual in spite of the overwhelming anglophone majority was blacked out in all television, newpaper and magazines with the collusion of the provincial political party leaders. There was no coverage of the legislation after it was passed either. I wonder what other news they have blacked out on us.
commented 2015-10-27 02:11:08 -0400
It’s hilarious that The Rebel is guilty of the exact same thing that they attack the MSM for, but think because they admit that they are conservative shills – that this excuses them from lies, propaganda, fear mongering and just plain bullshit due to their conservative bias.

The Rebel would be making a much better statement against the MSM is they were just fair and balanced to both sides, but since that isn’t the case – The Rebel has no business complaining about any other media source.
