CBC boosts leftist activist's "pathetic" attempt to silence Rex Murphy

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On last night's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, I reported on a story from the CBC about a "concerned Yukoner" who started a petition to have CBC's (only) conservative journalist uninvited from the Yukon Geoscience Forum.

And the CBC has decided to help her campaign!

This story has been published twice on the CBC — it’s so important, they’ve actually updated it. They want you kept up to speed on the latest:

Petition aims to have Rex Murphy uninvited from Yukon Geoscience Forum; Murphy wrote column last month questioning the credibility of Christine Blasey Ford

A concerned Yukoner has started a petition to have Rex Murphy uninvited from the Yukon Geoscience Forum. Rachel Grantham does not want Murphy giving a keynote address on Nov.17, in light of a recent column he wrote.

The petition was posted on Nov. 5 and has collected 60 signatures as of Tuesday morning. 

In the first place, The Rebel Media has had petitions too — ones about the open borders crisis that have had 50,000 plus signatures. We did one about the military that got 190,000 signatures.

But secondly: I just Googled Rachel Grantham. It took me a few seconds.

And Rachel Grantham isn’t just some "concerned Yukoner." She’s a political activist.

I'm not saying there’s anything wrong with that. But to pretend she’s just some random person, when she’s a paid, professional leftist activist, working for the government of the Yukon, as the union local president for a militant union — that’s the CBC lying.

Oh, and by the way, even after two pushes of this lame, lying, deceiving story, the petition in question? As I write this, it has less than 200 signatures. That’s just embarrassing.

The CBC does not even come close to fulfilling the Journalistic Standards and Practices listed on the website at the link listed below in Al’s comment.

Even more sad than the outright and subtle lies from the CBC and their claim to be neutral and representative of all Canadians are those Canadians who swear by the CBC as the perfect source for fair and balanced news.

Kind of puts the lie to the CBC’s much vaunted journalistic standards, doesn’t it?
