TheRebel.media celebrates its FIRST anniversary!

Rebel Staff

On February 13, 2015, the Sun News Network went off the air.

A few days later, Ezra Levant and Brian Lilley, along with other former Sun staffers, launched TheRebel.media.

Immediately, donors chipped in to crowdfund cameras, computers and other basic essentials to help The Rebel cover the stories the rest of Canada's media ignores or covers up.

A year later, TheRebel.media regularly gets 100,000 visitors each day.

Our Facebook page has 22,000 "likes." We have almost 18,000 Twitter followers and over 82,000 YouTube subscribers.

An amazing 100,000,000 minutes of Rebel video has been watched in one year!

We grew so fast we had to crowdfund a new studio!

TheRebel.media has broken exclusive, important stories that have been picked up in the U.S. and abroad.

Our latest milestone? Our first book -- Sheila Gunn Reid's expose of the Alberta NDP, called The Destroyers -- is a #1 Amazon.ca bestseller.

None of this could have happened without the generosity of viewers and visitors across Canada and around the world

You've watched and shared our videos, signed our petitions, bought Rebel swag and sent us your praise (and suggestions.)

And thanks to all of you, TheRebel.media is JUST getting started!

So where are the trolls who said the Rebel would not last a year? LMAO! Probably crying and huffing in their basements.

Happy first birthday, Ezra, Brian and all Rebel Rousers! What a way to celebrate this day with the acknowledgement and support from even the msm in your fight for your right as journalists to cover the news your way. I’m looking forward to future shows with Brian Lilley and Theo Caldwell as the Rebel grows. The first year has been nothing short of spectacular. To think that it all started with a short video in Ezra’s living room and has grown into a fully-equipped, crowdfunded professional studio in twelve short months is mind boggling. What a journey! It can only get better!

Job well done! I know you are going to increase your audience over the next twelve months. Have been with you since day one (different name). Congratulations

Congratulations, tremendous job, can’t wait for the second anniversary!!!!!!!

Love the Rebel, it’s my go to for the “real” story over the watered down version that the mainstream media presents. Keep up the good fight, it will only get better.

Well done guys and gals, i will support you whenever i can. It is so gratifying to see the left is scared of you and the truth, it means you are doing a good job of telling the truth.

One year strong and not going anywhere. Congrats Rebels.

Congratulations Ezra and Brian! I have followed you since the Western Standard Ezra, and still have my Libranos T shirt. Thank you both and all of your staff for providing Canadians with news we can use.

I think this success is billboard worthy! Please post your billboard of celebration in the general vicinity of our AB legislature, and one next door to our parliament. I love the idea of Rachel and Justie choking on their coffee, while reading this beautiful success story!

Congratulations to the you Ezra Levant and also to Brian Lilley on your first year anniversary. Both myself and my husband have enjoyed this year and we follow your coverage on a daily basis. We applaud you for your courage in reporting what others neglect-for whatever reasons-Oh, we know, the love-in with the present Liberal government who are well on their way to bankrupt Canada. Keep up your work, it is much needed. Also you have so many others we wish to recognize as well, Sheila Gunn Reid, Holly Nicholas, Christopher Wilson, Gavin McInnes, Lauren Southern, to name a few.
And Faith Goldy-love her show!!! MSM will never have your COURAGE.

When I discovered The Rebel I was almost instantly addicted. I didn’t even realize it, but I was starved, living without food and water, until I heard The Rebel say things that were so common sense I just couldn’t believe my eyes that people like that were still out there. Now I put it in the RSS feed and get most of my news from here. Congratulations and good luck Rebel Media.

This is awesome one year, how time flies. Please take time to pat yourselfves on the back and have a drink for me. Thank you for telling the other side of the story.

Ezra, Brian and The Rebel Reporters/Journalists, Staff
Congratulations on a brilliant and successful year. You may not have been a ‘reporter’ in 2014 Ezra (haha), but you sure are one now! Notley just can’t recognize a real journalist when she meets one!

As I said when you first started out: “Ex Parvis Magna”….Great things from small beginnings.

May you always fight for justice and have your voices heard. Rock on!!
commented 2016-02-16 15:26:00 -0500
One year in and one gov banning, one lawsuit, hatred throughout the media party, hatred from the “greenies”, unequivocal statement that Climate Change is a fraud, endless polls and petitions, activist hatred throughout Canada, a segment on french dialect swearing/foul language, a clear view into US politics.

Nicely done. Haven’t watched or read media party drivel in a year and have no need to now.

Thanks Rebel Media.

Congratulations, Rebel for persevering! Don’t forget that from the tiny acorn, the majestic oak grew!
commented 2016-02-16 15:05:36 -0500
Happy Anniversary Rebel and many more to come.

Why not celebrate by posting some of the vile threats you get from Lefty ? It was always my favorite weekly segment
commented 2016-02-16 14:53:01 -0500
I was so pleased to get the email from The Rebel in those days following the closure of SNN. I was doubtful of the long term prospects of the venture, but am happy to have my doubts allayed. One year later, and it appears The Rebel is going strong. Happy birthday, and keep up the great work!
commented 2016-02-16 14:47:29 -0500
Congrats, Ezra, Brian and crew. You have jumped into the media scene in Canada at a most fortuitous time and will give Canadians what they need when they need it – NEWS.
commented 2016-02-16 14:33:17 -0500
One year already!
No doubt 2016 will be even more “exciting”.
commented 2016-02-16 14:31:13 -0500
Congratulations and happy first birthday.
Don’t ever stop REBELING
commented 2016-02-16 14:19:32 -0500
Year one and counting! Way to go Ezra & Brian and all of those who have made the Rebel the best media in Canada. You are head and shoulders above the MSM fairy tale liars.
commented 2016-02-16 14:17:56 -0500
only a year in and the leftists are peeing their pants. notley goes full dictator blacklist on The Rebel, liberal mp’s show open hostility to REAL questions The Rebel asks, the purple poo-bah nenshi throws a hissy fit at Rebel questions, feminists/ecotards/sjw’s immediately turtle into quivering masses of hypocritical hysterics at the mere sight of The Rebel.
Not bad for the first year…………….
commented 2016-02-16 14:10:31 -0500
Congratulations to The Rebel and its staff!….Am so thankful that you are there for us, keeping us informed and challenged to fight for what is right for this country and its people. Keep up the fantastic work you are doing!
