Herbert Grubel: That time CBC filmed fake protests in Chile

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On last night's showHerbert Grubel, Emeritus Professor of Economics at Simon Fraser University, joined me to discuss the eternal problem of fake news.

Hebert explained that fake news existed long before social media and the internet and that the government can't regulate it out of existence.

WATCH our discussion to see how Herbert found out about the CBC inaccurately reporting on a protest in Chile against then-President Augusto Pinochet.

Cameras’, Action, Roll em", Right out the Door!

This has been going on for quite sometime now, it seems’ these Main Stream Media Networks of course here CBC – also CTV, Global, CNN, MSNBC, et-al have also become Mini – Movie Producers’ screening live paid acting scenarios with their high Tech equipment that in CBC’s case you and I the Tax payer have been purchasing for them!

They film the story content as if it were real news and then present the Little Movie Production as if were a News article taken by Journalists’ for you the viewer!

There are many different scenarios especially with some of the biggest Networks who even hire street actors’ to be various rolls’ victims’, complainants’, witnesses etc.

I simply refuse to watch any television News from any MSM Network as many are so talented at making up fictional News Stories’ according to their slanted Political Bias – unless you were there, you have no way of knowing if this actually occurred or if you are being fed this information to set a president?
In these times it is awful – there is no real way of knowing unless you are a Technical expert and then even they get fooled!

I had forgotten about that Chilean event. Thanks for the refresher Ezra. I wonder if the cbc hired old Marlon Perkins to direct that piece. He had a stranglehold on fakery, albeit in the animal realm. CBC wears that one moniker of theirs well…" lying to you since 1953".

Ahh, the CBC. The propaganda arm of the Liberal Party and groomers of the news since it’s inception.

Nothing good fire sale couldn’t resolve. Andrew Scheer….?
