Media Party focuses on “fake news” at Rebel rallies instead of struggling Albertans

Holly NicholasRebel Commentator

The media backlash from our Alberta Rally for Families in both Edmonton and Calgary is still going strong over a few chants of “Lock Her Up” and a fake news storyline in the mainstream media started by activist group, Raging Grannies.

What I haven’t seen in the mainstream media are any stories about struggling Albertans. There were thousands in attendance.

Instead, there were a lot of stories and tweets about The Rebel which fall into the fake news category.

The CBC brought in an academic to call us “deplorable” because they couldn’t do it themselves, mainstream media reporters are calling us illegitimate because we engage in some activism, others say we were playing into the hands of the NDP by calling conservative politicians out for bending to the media and throwing their frustrated constituents under the bus.

One reporter couldn’t even be bothered to call us by name. Keep in mind that less than a year ago, most of these journalists were in support of us being at government press conferences which speaks to their deep hypocrisy.

The reaction from the media is ironic since this is exactly what people are tired of - the media not reporting the news.

These rallies were about the suffering people of Alberta but the mainstream media made it about chants and signs and The Rebel.

It’s a sign of the times. We’re hearing a lot about fake news and the media meltdown over the last week are prime examples of the media not being accountable to the people.

Instead of telling the stories of thousands of hurting Albertans that attended our rallies, they were sacrificed as a trade off in favour of causing a distraction from the mainstream media itself.

I can see fox leaning more left, especially after that infamous sexual harassment that took place.

Roger MCavory—-With Trump their buddy, it would be a strange time for Fox News to turn left.

No, no mistake about it, sorry.

I watch(ed) them everyday, believe me I wish I was wrong.

@roger MCAVOY…. Are we watching the same station? Tucker Carlson a left wing extremeist?? Fox has more balance than any other msm network, but I think your signal light got stuck or something.

It appears the left has claimed another victim with Fox news, Fox seems to be taking a hard left turn over the last week or so, just to let the right side of the conversation know, Fox is no friend to the right conversation anymore.

we need to look for clues as to who is calling the shots in the msm…are we the only ones who noticed unifor on global’s opening screen on their ‘news’?

The writing was on the wall when they fired Dave Rutherford! QR77 has gone down hill from there. I would wear that like a badge of honour!

Hi Holly. You are absolutely right about the middle finger.

How long before people wake up and realize that the media are not helping to give them a voice?

There is something positively precious about certain media outlets crying because they feel ganged up on. If we didn’t already know you were part of the ‘media party’ we do now. Way to identify yourselves. The only people who aren’t sick to death of the lying media party are members of the lying media party. Bloody crocodile tears. Get straight, do your job, or you will be the masters of your own demise.
QR77, sinking ship.

Deeply disappointed in QR77 , Breakenridge and the SJW apologists they’ve become – I’m off the brand – too much real conservative podcasting on stream to waste time with some CINO AM radio dinosaurs – might as well go back to top 4o format as trade in the snowflake jelly they spew now.

Yeah well the MSM has played partisan politics for generations but now it has reached a shrill cultish level as they have normalized fringe left propaganda techniques and dyslexic morality.

Liars like to lie, professional liars take pride in it.

The CBC was designed to get tv and information to northern communities. They’ve outlasted their usefulness

Glad Notley is filling her boots. We can tango, not a problem. We are not going anywhere. The best way to ensure that, is to grow our numbers and give back as good as we get.
Gloves are off.

Super good one HOLLY
When the REBEL gets its comedy show up and going , the frothing raging granolas will be a fun skit
commented 2016-12-15 18:43:17 -0500
Awesome commentary Holly!
commented 2016-12-15 18:26:58 -0500
From the low level Spin that the MSM tries to belittle the Rebel with, it is not hard to come to the conclusion that they are actually scared of The Rebel and it’s honest reporting.

All the MSM Leftist Broadsheets have long forgotten what honesty is, when it comes to Politics, at least.

It is no wonder that the general public are confused. Put it down to MSM Spin and dirty Politics.

Ron Voss – exactly! It’s to pay to keep the governments propagandists working for them. They have become an arm of the government, just like our legal system, and our police forces, etc.

DEBORAH GRAUPNER, “Just remember that the MSM has been bought and paid for, and no longer operate on the side of the people.” That $9 million the NDP is spending on ads in the media to sell the carbon tax won’t convince many of the two thirds of Albertans who oppose it, but it will keep the media in line.

The raging grannies a bunch of aging union-supported social justice warriors who would never think of raging against the lost jobs and hurt caused to the families losing their livilihood. Instead rage on behalf of the myth of man-made climate change. Get a life women!

funny when sunnews shut down they thought they shut down the right but now were bigger and better apparently the rebel is getting more hits then sunnews did

Just remember that the MSM has been bought and paid for, and no longer operate on the side of the people. Real journalists report the facts, and both sides of the story, in an unbiased manner, in order to keep our governments from doing exactly as they please. Just like they are doing now, and have been for sometime. These are paid liars, and fairy tale spinners, that are being paid to cover for all levels of government. And the insult, is that our tax dollars are being used to destroy our freedoms and democracy, and anyone who doesn’t bow down to the will of those with an agenda. This is blanket censorship, and is meant to control public opinion, and to turn people away from those who speak the truth.

The main stream media always complains about The Rebel not having both view points, conservative and socialist, in their coverage when they only cover the news from a socialist perspective.

The Rebel makes it clear that they present the news and opinions from a Conservative perspective, there is no ambiguity here.

The MSM, however, pretend to be unbiased presenting both views on the news, but they never do.

At least The Rebel is honest in their Conservative bias, when in fact the MSM are socialist liars.

I have a premium account because I am tired of listening to the false narrative of main (lame) stream media, also as a long time supporter of Conservative parties I am discussed with the behavior of the federal conservatives an have suspended all support for them, instead giving it to The Rebel Media. The federal conservatives will not see a blue cent until they start standing up for real blue conservatism.
