Media coverage of conservative Unity Vote is more Fake News

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

Last Saturday’s 95 per cent vote to approve the unification of Alberta’s two conservative parties has left some people absolutely devastated and others desperately searching for answers.

But those people aren't the overwhelming majority of members of both conservative parties. Those people are the NDP, their friends in mainstream media and some entrenched cronies who see the biscuit wheels falling off their gravy train.

I want to tell you about what I learned about the mainstream media as I covered the Wildrose unity vote in Red Deer. You have to watch my video - I recount what really went on.

I give you the inside story about how the media operates. It goes a little something like this:

Show up very late, write a story without talking to the normal people (the only ones who really matter if you ask me) and then finish by dredging up some noisy, fringe cranks that fit your personal agenda.

Voila! Fake news is born.

What I learned over this amazing and hopeful weekend for Albertans is that 95 per cent consensus means anything, even disunity, depending on your politics.

I also learned you don’t need to work all day to create fake news but telling the truth requires working a lot of overtime.

Watch the mainstream media, especially the CBC try to discredit UCP by asking them questions about LBGTQ, LBGT, Trans-gender, trans-this, trans-that, and they will use their propaganda to promote Racheal Notley’s job killing NDP and discredit the united conservatives.

Bill Elder, stellar comment,
“All over North America the crony establishment elite is panicking at the wave of populism sweeping the political landscape – with it comes a form of libertarianism both left and right elites fear – imagine people making up their own minds about their futures without the aid of the stilted media natterers or political control freaks – and the impudence of them to reject the scolding narratives of their presumptive superiors – why the damn rabble will want to run their own affairs out with elites next – what is this plutocracy coming to.”

The mainstream media isn’t interested in reporting reality back to the readers, viewers, and listeners. They see their job as promoting and advancing the Revolution so that they can see the final Utopia that they were promised all the way back to elementary school. That’s how they manage to write puff pieces like this about the likes of Sunny Boy, rather than reporting the truth:

Civil war is definitely coming to Canada! What we need is for Canadians to storm our parliament and remove that traitor from office. He needs to study history and see what happened to Mussolini!

It is time to start treating the NDP and their SJW allies as enemies.

Civil war is coming – be ready.

We all pay a lot of money to support CBC reporters. And the CBC twists narratives in favor of the current governments if liberal. They take a movie of an event and use moments in time that show the narratives they would love to have you believe. They know most of the morons that read or listen to the CBC are too stupid to go beyond reading a story. If you do read a story, it is pure conjecture.
Do a google search for Ezra Levant or the Rebel and look a the picture they have of Ezra screaming like someone ran over his toe with a lawn mower.
That would be google of course, a company with the same anti – sanity policies of the liberal left.
Media scum.

Jan G, I agree with you and echo you comment.

Sheila: I think you should run for Premier of Alberta. There is no one more qualified, knowledgeable and determined than you. Canada needs people like you to take hold of what is important for this country.
You are a warrior. Canada needs people like you and if women want a role model….it is you Sheila.

Is there any way to reach any of them to get them to become honest reporters again?

Are the main stream media journalists going to forever distort the truth and lie to their readers?
commented 2017-07-25 22:14:38 -0400
Is it even possible?
commented 2017-07-25 22:13:53 -0400
I wonder what it will take to get the main stream media to stop lying and to get back to upholding the journalistic principles?

BTW Sheila, you and Holly are doing fantastic job of factually exploding the lugenpresse lie feed

Sheila, we are grateful you & Holly who provided real coverage of this historic event.
Msm writers seem rather lazy and cannot be bothered to investigate anything. The spin the articles take is so off the mark.
