Do you ever get the feeling that the mainstream media hates you and they employ people who actively despise you?
Well they do. Sometimes we see the truth in a moment of uncontrolled derangement.
Today, I'll show you what Global News Montreal had to say about lawful Canadian gun owners.
Global News posted a story with the headline:
“The more gun ownership, the more mass shootings. This isn't rocket science, expert says”
The story is crafted to blame innocent Canadian gun owners for the surge in illegal handgun use and gang violence in Toronto and shootings in the United States. No surprise there. I am used to the concealed bias of Canadian mainstream media outlets. It's why I have a job.
But when this story was first published to Global New’s Montreal's Facebook page, the bias wasn't all that concealed.
The story was posted with the text:
“Guns only exist to kill people that's why they were invented. Gun lovers can f**k off. Get your thrills doing something else”
The vulgar post, demeaning law-abiding gun owners prompted Global News to issue an apology via another Facebook offering:
“We have removed an erroneous post that stated an opinion and used language that is unacceptable on a global news platform. The unauthorized post was made by a former employee who inadvertently published it to the Global Montreal Facebook.”
I'm not sure that it was inadvertent and I'm not sure if I believe Global Montreal's explanation.
But I am sure this is how newsrooms talk about normal people on a whole host of issues us deplorables and sewer rats find near and dear. As rude as it was, I appreciate the honesty.
And I am sure that if a conservative news outlet had made such a bigoted and R-rated statement about a peaceful demographic of the Canadian population, they wouldn't get off with a whoopsie daisy and a sorry.
