Canadian Journalists for Free Expression takes pro-censorship side in war on fake news

Hilariously named organization Canadian Journalists for Free Expression, is taking sides in the war on fake news.

What could possibly go wrong?

CJFE, in conjunction with pollster Nick Nanos, conducted a survey asking Canadians their opinions on fake news.

The poll demonstrated that a “strong majority of Canadians are concerned that fake news is making it more difficult to find accurate sources of information and citizens want the government to do something about it.”

CJFE VP Tom Henheffer said “this is a clear message to governments that Canadians are concerned about the effect of fake news on our democracy.”

Henheffer goes on to say the survey found that citizens believe the federal government could do a better job of informing Canadians about its operations.

Missing from the CJFE press release about the poll was any expression of concern about those troubling, pro-censorship findings. But that’s because they have a long history of censorship and overstepping their mandate to push an anti-free speech agenda that punishes dissent.

They even ran a petition trying to ban President Trump from the G7 meetings held in Quebec earlier this month.

Watch as I show you some other times CJFE failed to do what their name suggests they do.

If CJFE wants to fight fake news, they better start with their name.

Trudeau’s bought and paid for CBC is the main source for “fake news” in Canada, closely followed by Mcleans and then the Toronto Star. They all have their noses so far up Trudeau’s azz I wonder how they are able to breath.

Another of the purposefully wrongly named groups who say they are doing one thing while actually doing the opposite. Like Greenpeace and Amnesty.

“Asking the liberal government to do ‘something’ about fake news? The government writes the stuff. Don’t people realize that what will be censored/silenced will be the news they don’t want you to know. Tell me people are not that stupid! "

Sorry Liza they are that stupid.

I guess I’ll have to form my own organization called Canadian Reporters for Absolute Speech Suppression. CRASS will advocate for free speech, chiefly because it exposes the public to the stupid things that stupid people stupidly say and stupidly do. CRASS will be open to all reporters, especially stupid ones we can make fun of.

The liberalist globalist wingnut media DJ’s in Canada on certain radio stations are going full on “Trump Derangement”…

A lot..if not all radio stations are owned by one Corporation.. as you can hear in their 10 second promotion…

When will the real people start quitting their jobs at the trudeau propaganda anti Democracy machine and going forward to the general public with the truth in Canada? Surely there is a few that want to break free…

What democracy? CJFE is part of the undemocratic gang that is leading Canada to it’s death bed.

Can You hear the people sing?

Should be renamed “Canadian Journalists for Freak Expression”. Better represents the left wing bias and could potentially avoid “fake news” status.
