“Fake news” panelists paranoid about The Rebel Media

Adam/Pathetic MillennialRebel Correspondent

The University of Toronto hosted a panel discussion about "fake news" this week. I went to it, and a few weird things happened.

For one thing, Jesse Brown of Canadaland asked the audience if any of them was from The Rebel Media. Uh, okay...

He also said some things about those Covington Catholic students that, by then, everyone knew were simply false. Pretty funny considering he was there to condemn "fake news," but then again, it turned out that the panelists' definition of that was kind of dubious.

And you have to see how they reacted when an international student, from India, asked them a question the all-leftist panel was clearly uncomfortable with.

Al asked, “How did I do? Did I fill in adequately for Knickers in a Knot Knicholas Konklin ?”

You did very well! I was worried there for a second that you were overwhelmed by the hateful Nicholas spirit, but soon realized you were being sarcastic. Anyway, my knuckles don’t drag that much! ;o)

The boys came to protest abortion
To a rally held down in DC
The outrage was out of proportion
OH bring back the death penalty

Bring back , bring back ,Oh bring back the death penalty
Bring back , bring back ,Oh bring back the death penalty

A shitstorm went out over TWITTER
The death threats ran rampant and free
The MSM pundits were bitter
Oh bring back the death penalty

A Vietnam vet baby killer
Who served in the Frigidaireborne
Got stared down by one smiling fellow
And became an object of scorn

This is the website, Canadaland, that Nicholas Conklin loves so much. I’m not surprised.
Oh, Yeah, Peter Netterville? Well let me tell you, The Rebel is failing miserably and is going down like a sinking ship. The stats show it. You’re just one of Ezra’s many mouth breathing, knuckle dragging, alt-right, hate spewing, many-phobic (did I miss any?) sheep that believe whatever spews out of his mouth! The hammer is falling today for sure! Or was that yesterday? or the day before? Or last week? Or every week for the last two months? It doesn’t matter because the hammer IS falling someday and it will prove what sheep you all are. I just don’t tell you what the hammer is so that I can’t be held accountable if it doesn’t fall.

How did I do? Did I fill in adequately for Knickers in a Knot Knicholas Konklin ?

Keith said, "Looks like it was just too much work for Jesse to discover the truth, so he just went with the fake news narrative. "

Looks like it was just too much work for Jesse to discover the truth, so he just went with the fake news narrative.

Jesse Brown, the Clown…:)

Regarding the accusations thrown at those students, there are lawsuits in the works for many who jumped on the fake news manufactured lying bandwagon.

How bloody ironic. Jesse Brown on a fake news panel. Madow is probably Brown’s idol. Too funny that he thought the Indian kid was working for someone. The Jesse Browns of the world are so transparent, so easy to spot. Regarding the students waiting for their bus back home and the lies from outfits like Brown’s, the actual full footage shows clearly what the truth is. People who think for themselves can easily see the truth, like that student from India who asked that terrific question. Brown and other cowards who are trying to brand those students in Washington, are the worst kind of bullies. Jesse Brown of la la land, should be ashamed.

Welcome Adam.

That was a typical panel we see these days, three left-wing msm personnel, one columnist who isn’t as far left as the rest. CBC’s Power and Politics is a perfect example,with Rosemary Barton who has the world biggest crush on Justin Trudeau,Chantal Hebert of the Toronto Star, “balanced” by Andrew Coyne of National Post who is supposed to represent the conservative perspective.

It’s laughable. The student was absolutely accurate,the media has their own set of morals and they are ready to pounce on and destroy anyone who doesn’t agree with them.
The news today is not just fake, ie the stuff they make up, but also wildly inaccurate in a way that 30 years ago would have got the Reporter fired.

Awesome on fake new But Adam would you please dress more professional it would really show you as credible Thank you

Well done Adam! Lefties still spewing “fake news” about the Covington incident even after it has been proven beyond a reasonable doubt that the initial reporting was maligned against the children and posted in favour of the actual harassers. Canadian MSM reporting tactics are tainted and cannot be believed.

Jan G he runs Canadaland , a website with a similar model for funding as the Rebel, but the Rebel is far more successful and like Ron says, Jesse is a sad little Jealous troll.
commented 2019-01-25 00:38:51 -0500
What? The Rebel was the only news organization that covered the Covington incident?
Wow, that’s amazing.

Who is this idiot Jesse Brown? He is uninformed, ill-informed and outright ignorant. He is so full of himself he must have a lot of GI problems.

JAMES CALLAGHAN—-I agree, whenever I tune in to Canadaland, I get the strange feeling that they can’t afford the lights.
Then I heard Jesse in action; he can’t hide that he is jealous of Ezra’s success.

Jesse Brown’s Canadaland was left in the DUST by The Rebel…

Has anyone seen his website???…talk about Amature Hour…

Good job Adam keep up the good work and never give in to the dictators 👍🏻

Well these clowns know fake news, they spew it all the time.
Jesse Brown is a pathetic joke. LMAO!

The Thing Is millennial Adam, as a baby boomer I can tell you it’s been like this for 30 years or more and I don’t see it getting better. George Orwell tried to warn us. Paul Harvey tried to warn us and now Trump is trying to warn us. Third time the charm or will it fall to the side? It might be our last chance. I’m sacrificing everything to make it happen. Everyday is a fight

Rebel Media is the best true news source in Canada!

Adam, When I was your age I was working at the Canadian Press. I did manual gofer of copy that could not be transmitted by TELETYPE or TELEPHOTO and I serviced that equipment.

I was offered an apprenticeship in journalism that would start with writing obituaries according to the CANADIAN PRESS style manual. It took decades to become an editor and a lifetime to become a pundit with any credibility….now the journalism schools pop out pundits by the hundreds at every graduation convocation. And as you say, they are full of shit.

I will never forget the day I showed up for the job interview. Bureau Chief Jack Brayley had a sign framed on his wall that read:

My first impressions:
I have a problem with the name, right off the bat.

Then Adam is on the screen…talking…and I almost exited…except that I had started to overlook my negative first impression and listened to what he was actually saying…and sat rapt…til the end.

I can’t believe I’m as old and as smart as I am, and am still…swayed by appearances.

Rebels have the MSM running scared. Their Marxism in them is showing.

MSM spews propaganda. The Rebel reports the news.

A “woke” Millennial? Gotta love it! Good job Rebel!
