Dept. of National Defence seeks journalists to teach bureaucrats how to spin fake news

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

Based on an item I noticed on the government procurement website BuyAndSell.GC.ca, it looks like the Department of National Defence will be announcing some changes that the Canadian public won't like.

The website that lists government contracts and tenders acts as a crystal ball that can reveal what the government is planning next, as was the case with this item:

Wanted: “Journalist for role-playing services”, for a contract with the Department of National Defence.

The journalists are being hired under the auspices of training new spokespeople, which almost sounds vaguely reasonable until you read the entire request for procurement.

When you do, it sounds more like liberals teaching other liberals how to talk to liberals who want to hear more liberal garbage, rather than training a spokesperson to tell the Canadian public the facts.

While reading this, it's easy to forget these are Department of National Defence spokespeople, and not spokespeople for the Liberal Party of Canada.

These are supposed to be non-partisan bureaucrats, not taught by journalists how to fake the news.

Whoever the Liberals hire to fill these jobs will be incredible role-players all right, considering they've been playing the role of Unbiased Journalists ever since they started their careers in the mainstream media.

The job of a real journalist is to hold the government to account, not teach government spokespeople how to skirt accountability.

I am not surprised to read this article.

The CDN government and CDN military have the worst record on the planet for cancelling or stalling military vehicle programs. Approximately 95% of the ground vehicle programs the CDN government initiates, fail after the first design phase or right after. These people just can’t make up their minds yet they put out a “Statement of Work” to work from and bid on then quickly do a 180 and it’s something entirely new.

Renault (Europe) was awarded a heavy transport program last year and it was disguised as a CDN – US partnership with local assembly content. The local assembly content consisted of bolting on some accessories. By CDN law there was supposed to be 60% CDN content in a vehicle and in reality there was less than 5 %.

After speaking with several US based military contractors last year at a conference in Ottawa it was unanimous that these US contractors and myself would most likely sit out future CDN military development (Bid) programs because “it’s a waste of time, money and effort”.

Thank the Lieberal Party for their lack of knowledge, their indecisiveness, and their fickle nature. It’s like working with a bunch of old frustrated fish wives. (and I’m being very kind when I say this)

This one “stinks” to high heaven when supposed journalists are being hired for “role playing”… The “role” being determined by WHO?… As it appears right now on the surface, this is no more than “journalists” being interviewed to “role play” for Izvestia or Pravda…

Liberal Narcissism knows no bounds.

Are they trying to tell us that Liberals don’t know how to lie? The first lesson a Liberal rookie has to learn is, ‘How to smile while telling lie’s’ and then, ‘How to sneer at a Conservative when what he is saying makes perfect sense’.
I wonder what kind of expression Justin had on his face when he announced that he wanted to bring the Englishman Jihad’i Jack, ex Isis fighter, to Canada. If he was smirking then he was telling the truth.
