Biggest threat facing Scheer isn’t Trudeau’s Liberals. It’s the mainstream media.

Here's my immediate reaction to the election of Andrew Scheer as the new leader of the Conservative Party of Canada, and what I think we can expect going forward:

i think the relative readership of the Rebel vs say CBC news tells you everything you need to know.
commented 2017-05-30 16:49:35 -0400
Okay Andrew, so you have no intention of providing some evidence that proves The Rebel is “not credible”, but just your opinion.
commented 2017-05-30 16:44:05 -0400
Once again, the entire “media party” conspiracy is credibility-damaging, especially given the distinct rightward skew of some of our biggest news orgs.
commented 2017-05-30 15:07:12 -0400
Andrew, I was hoping you could actually provide some evidence of The Rebel not being credible rather than your opinion.

Believe it or not, Andrew, but for someone (or organization) to be considered “not credible” that person/organization must have said something that breaks that credibility, such as lying, for instance.

Your opinion of whether The Rebel is credible or not does not make them what you claim. It is only your opinion.

So please provide some factual evidence where someone on The Rebel has lied.

The whole “media party” conspiracy is one of them. The CBC tends left, sure, so does the Star. Neither are as far left as the Rebel is right (the Star will frequently target the Liberals in their investigative journalism. I have yet to see the Rebel do the same for any right wing party). The rest of the media is generally pretty centrist, even centre-right. The Sun chain edges into sycophancy, without a single dissenting voice on staff.

Social Justice Warriors, Harper Derangement Syndrome, etc. All are invented bogeymen, which gain far more attention at the Rebel (to rally the masses, of course) than their actual presence requires. Do the universities handle controversy badly? Sure. Is it a roiling controvery of confidence threatening to destroy western civilization? Probably not. ANTIFA? It’s the same small group of troublemakers responsible for the Vancouver hockey riots or the G20 riots in Toronto, it’s not some sort of bizarre rebellion. That’s where the Rebel’s credibility suffers – they take minor issues and blow them dramatically out of proportion, basically inventing enemies for purely partisan purposes.

Andrew asked, " … is it [The Rebel] a credible one [source], though?"

You will have to make that decision yourself. You, as a left-of-center person, will likely say no.

I have yet to get an answer from people like you to expose where some contributor at The Rebel is lying, but never get a response.

Having a different opinion from someone of the Left, such as you, does not make The Rebel “not credible”.

The Rebel contributors almost always have supporting original source documents that prove what they are saying in their video is the truth. This is more than most left wing media do.

Andrew, can you point to something specific that one of The Rebel contributors has said that makes them “not credible”?

Keep in mind, Andrew, that them expressing their opinion does not make them “not credible”.

What would make The Rebel “not credible” would be if they are lying about something.

Can you, Andrew, prove where one of them has lied? Remember, having a differing opinion from yours in not actually lying.

All the light weight CCBC media types are out of the Marxist Ryerson school of BS.

Conservative voices don’t even number enough to constitute a statistical anomoly in Canada . The entire media is a fully functioning intrinsic part of the Liberal Government. What we get is total propaganda and rubbish on a daily basis.’

So, what of Postmedia, which owns the majority of print media in Canada and was pretty desperate to prop up Harper when it became clear he was losing.

Jay said, “If TheRebel is legitimate it must start treating stories seriously. It cannot claim things like “fake news” if it is news provided by a legitimate source.”

Leviticus 2013 said, “Sounds to me like the rebel is just practicing good journalism by telling the other side of the story and letting people form an opinion.”

The Rebel is the counterweight to the socialist main stream media. "

is it a credible one, though? They brag about their 700,000 subscribers, but that’s 2% of Canada. A lot of the rest view it as the wailing of the alt-right movement as they struggle with their protracted yet inevitable demise.

Jay Kelly i can name you actual FAKE NEWS, it is more than a claim.
commented 2017-05-29 09:56:49 -0400
One of the many things the Left never seems to grasp is that just because someone calls himself Conservative does not make that person Conservative. Chong is not at all Conservative. He (and others in the party) just call themselves Conservatives, CINOs.

If the CBC likes and supports a Conservative, you can be absolutely sure that person is actually a left winger posing as Conservative.

The CBC NEVER endorses nor supports a true Conservative. All they do is maliciously attack the real Conservatives. The CBC despises anyone who has a different opinion than themselves.

Of course, this is not news to the regulars that post comments here on this website.

The media made Harper out to be an evil monster and it will do the same with whomever is the leader.

Like usual, socialists such as Jay are incapable of seeing just how biased and hateful the main stream media is towards the right wing, especially Conservatives. As such, the main stream media is NOT a legitimate source in the sense Jay Kelly is claiming.

The Rebel states clearly that the present the right wing perspective to the news.

The main stream media lies claiming they represent a balanced view.

The Rebel is honest in their right leaning perspective.

The CBC and the rest of the main stream media are dishonest. They are liars. They outright attack Conservatives … real Conservatives … for little of no offense whatsoever. Yet they glaringly ignore the corruption of the Liberals and NDP. NOT a legitimate source.

One thing I can say for the MSM. They are consistent. … consistently biased.
commented 2017-05-29 08:29:20 -0400
Space Moose, I echo your sentiments re: CBC
During the campaign, I had to respond to Chong’s e-mails & his supporters, by telling them I would never include him on my ballot, I don’t have time for posers and remove me from the e-mail list. They finally got the message!
commented 2017-05-29 03:51:07 -0400
CBC news were upset that Chong did not win. THey said that as he is a principled man, that it would not be a bad thing if he crossed the floor. God I hate the CBC.

TheRebel.media has to decide if it is a legitimate media outlet or some sort of fanatical opinion site.

Jay… It is my strongest believe that media by telling the story is designed to solicit opinions from people… Sounds to me like the rebel is just practicing good journalism by telling the other side of the story and letting people form an opinion.

Scheer twice worked as a party apparatchik before running for parliament at age 24. He is a professional politician the likes of which we have not seen before. Absolute zero real world experience.

Scheer is neither a Westerner nor from Saskatchewan. He’s lived 90% of his life in Ottawa and he ain’t leaving anytime soon.

Faith projects a so-con spirit onto Scheer. He’s “pro-life” but unwilling to table legislation against mass infanticide. Scheer’s a card-board phoney who will sit on the fence and spew platitudes.

He owes this victory to a mobilisation of Quebec farmers who will never vote Conservative but who loathed Bernier for speaking the truth about the petrified scandal that is supply managed agriculture.

It feels good for many conservatives to have an outlet to express views which may not be accepted on legitimate outlets.

Is that what TheRebel is? An ineffective outlet for opinions that very few take seriously?

That is like predicting the sun will rise tommorrow.

Of course MSM will do everything to tear Andrew Scheer down, the same as they did to Stephen Harper. Everyone should do everything they can to expose MSM’s corrupt system of being a liberal only brainwashing/support system and it should be repeatedly drilled into the public’s heads for deprogramming from the MSM’s many years of promoting liberal lies.
I like Andrew Scheer who appears truthful and to have empathy for all Canadians. Scheer will run circles around JT and will be the next PM of Canada in 2019. Andrew Scheer has nicer hair. LOL

Great report FAITH
We must get behind him and oust the CRIMEMINISTER
We must call out the LUGENPRESSE on their lies and their counter campaign for the CRIMEMINISTER

They’ll simply do the same to Andrew Scheer as they did to Stephen Harper.

Watch, they’ll give the NDP campaign more coverage now.

“Biggest threat facing Scheer isn’t Trudeau’s Liberals. It’s the mainstream media.”

It certainly would be nice if we could force the main stream media to uphold the principles of journalism that they swore to uphold when they took their journalist degrees.
commented 2017-05-28 17:40:25 -0400
Michelle Rempel, er, the mainstream media, will be the biggest threat facing Scheer which is not unexpected. The CBC panelists were flabbergasted how well Trost and the social conservatives did. However, I think they and the Liberals would have had a field day with Bernier’s chequered past. Scheer should be able to handle the media as long as he doesn’t cave in to political correctness.
commented 2017-05-28 17:05:40 -0400
I can’t wait to see Andrew Scheer shred Trulydumb in a national debate. Scheer is a heavyweight on the brains side and well, um, ahhh . . . The libs well have a collective heart sink from watching their leader non-perform. The Conservatives picked the right guy for the job, in my mind.
commented 2017-05-28 16:11:11 -0400
Whoops That should have been Scheer not Cheer.
commented 2017-05-28 16:07:07 -0400
I am happy with Andrew Scheer’s win and just hope that behind his pleasant smile, there is a Rattle Snake ready to strike. He will be fighting for a Canada that has been taken over by evil persons, led by an idiot puppet of Islam.

Cheer is going to have to fight dirty, if he wants to become the next PM. Liberals understand Dirt, it makes them feel at home.
commented 2017-05-28 16:05:39 -0400
Of course CBC and its lemmings will trash Andrew Scheer at every opportunity including inventing opportunities to trash him. Lest we forget CBC is the mouthpiece of the Red Tent -

Take the case of Pierre Juneau, a long-time Trudeau friend. In 1968, Juneau became the first chairman of the Canadian Radio and Television Commission (CRTC), where he led Trudeau’s mission to increase Canadian content over the airwaves. Trudeau brought Juneau into his cabinet in 1975 as minister of communications before winning a seat in the House of Commons. Trudeau opened up a riding for Juneau by appointing the member from Hochelaga, Gerald Pelletier, to become Canada’s ambassador to France. But Juneau lost what was considered a safe seat in the by-election and was forced to leave cabinet. Juneau then moved into the public service as undersecretary of state. In 1980, he became deputy minister of communications, and in 1982, the president of the CBC

Bill Elder said..
“You can’t stop negative commentary until it crosses the border of slander or lies – at that point the party (not Sheer directly) must start using lawfare to tame a treasonous, treacherous globalist-contrilled media who have sold out to foreign interests aligned against our democratic process.”

You’re absolutely correct in stating the way that the conservatives have to approach this… They will have their work cut out for them and they must ignore the slanderous name calling that will happen..!

Eric Duhaime is presently under attack by the Quebec MSM ! Last week on a TV talk show they labelled him as a right wing extremist spreading Fake News!
Unfortunately The Rebel and its readers are not interested with Quebec, They don’t realize the 10 seats the Conservatives got in the last Election happened when the NPD supported the Niqab and face covering immigration ceremony. Most Quebecers dispise the Trudeau and the Liberals in general. If the Rebel would get more conservatives news and opinions maybe 10 seats could become 20. But it all about divide and conquer, English against the French, and meanwhile this link watch to the end!

Yes this outcome works for me. Good choice. Get ready for a lot of very fake news on steroids. Mostly though they will just continue to focus on what isn’t news and miss the real story.
