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.
