“Fact Check”? CBC runs fake news poll as political propaganda — then covers its tracks

Rebel Staff

Oh boy, did the CBC screw up the other day:

Huge factual error, clear attempt to interfere with an election. Disinformation, meddling, fake news.

The sort of things they accuse others of doing.

The CBC has a series they call “Fact Check," so they can pretend they’re a referee, not a player, in the game of political manipulation. Here are some examples:

Andrew Scheer torques study in claim about the new NAFTA deal

Why Andrew Scheer's climate plan won't hit Canada's Paris targets

Maxime Bernier's false claim about Canada's 'subsidized’ immigrants

By “fact check” the CBC means — Be the Liberal war room: Discredit enemies of Justin Trudeau, by digging up, say, an economist who disagrees with a conservative.

That's not fact-checking. That's just arguing.

So let’s fact check the government journalists at Trudeau's CBC state broadcaster:

NDP and PCs in 'dead heat' heading into Manitoba election, poll suggests

Is that true? An incumbent conservative on the ropes, and the rump NDP, led by a party leader who is, shall we say, a bit physical when it comes to the lady folk?

Call me a skeptic.

Despite leading in polls since their election in 2016, Brian Pallister's Progressive Conservatives have fallen into a dead heat with Wab Kinew's NDP right at the beginning of the 2019 provincial election," reads the report out Friday from polling firm Converso.

Converso poll placed PCs at 31%, NDP at 30%, Liberals at 11%, Greens at 6%, undecided at 15%

Except this was fake news, by a pollster that nobody seems to have heard of.

The very next day, the pollster in question admitted he had got his numbers all wrong. And so the CBC sheepishly changed their headline:

"Pollster says there's a data issue with survey suggesting Manitoba PCs and NDP are in 'dead heat’”

So much for the NDP and PCs being in a "dead heat."

The CBC ran a fake news poll; and when it was revealed to be fake news, they faked their own headline, by changing it, to pretend they knew all along that it was fake, and to blame the pollster.

And yes, he deserved blame. But they were the fools who ran with it — because they loved what it said too much.

This isn't the only poll-related fake news story that ran recently. TONIGHT I'll show you another one, this time targeting Ontario Premier Doug Ford.

Wait until I tell you about that pollster...

Fake poll on the CBC. Fake poll on CTV. Not a peep from the “fact-checkers”.

It’s almost like they’re part of an agenda — it’s almost like Trudeau is giving hundreds of millions of dollars to the media bail-out, to rent these journalists during the election...

NEXT: Joel Pollak of Breitbart joins me to talk about the Squad's attempt to visit Israel.

it is time sheldon that canadians demand better NOW. usual from these bought and paid for media scum is no answer. now is the time ro rid ourselves of these scum and their masters, the liberal party. Maxime is the answer for canada, but canadians must figure this out themselves, because the lying puke media in this country will try to destroy the PPC because honesty, integrity, and plain common sense is not in their vocabulary.

ANDREW STEPHENSON: Why do you blow sunshine up the CBCs ass ?

The CBC is a disgrace.
Certainly not a place where I turn to, to become informed.
They are extremely biased.
Ever notice, when they have a “panel discussion” about Trump, the panel always consists of Trump haters.
CBC, not worth watching.

I don’t think the media listens very well, they only hear certain words key to their spin. Very shallow.

Fact check this clip Wick, or show it to someone who has some attention span and could help you interpret it and direct you to the info that is out there for everyone (even you) to do their own fact checking.
A little learning….from the PPC convention.
If you really want to set your hair on fire watch this.

( and with CPC walk away Ben Dichter)
..and on a lighter note, lots to fact check for the trolls in this song, can you count the number of Justin faux pas?

There is a saying: “if you tell a lie long enough, people will believe it”. During WW2, Hitlers propaganda minister put his own twist on this saying. His version was: “if you call a square a triangle long enough, people will believe you”.

It’s obvious that the media can not longer be trusted with providing us with the correct time of day let alone the issue that affect this nation. No wonder the Rebel is constantly under attack by the liberal left.

Obama was a UN plant embedded by the NWO. Just like Trudeau.
Wake up Wick.

There are several Lieberal Crime Family “propaganda outlets” that have been pegged as such. If you want a good laugh visit them. If you want factual political news stories I suggest you don’t bother.

Andrew Stephenson how about Robocalls BS and the Duffy lies they peddled.
commented 2019-08-22 01:32:14 -0400
Andrew Stephenson yeah sure they do. Show me the apology or acknowledgment of error about the Rob Ford 911 call they blatantly lied about. They would be admitting constantly if they cared. Now show me where they admit the other parts are just opinion. LMAO!
commented 2019-08-21 23:17:00 -0400
At least the CBC will admit they made a mistake. It says right in the byline of the updated article that it had been updated due to a problem with the source.

They didn’t double down on it, like some might. Perhaps the Rebel would find it more amenable if they registered some domains and put up a petition and/or fundraising page?

Omar is not on the side of the west. Her and her girlfriend don’t deserve to live in a western country period.
The damage that the cbc is doing to this country is shameful. They hardly even reflect western values anymore let alone connect Canadians from all corners of the country. They don’t celebrate Canada, they want to tear it apart and their lies are doing a pretty good job of it. No part of the cbc should be saved. Canadians don’t want their lying government propaganda for one more minute. Canada is turning into a festering sore thanks to government censorship and propaganda. The cbc are well paid off lying government whores.

Interesting…at about the 19 minute mark…I think so misspoke by saying the Dramacratic Party…

It’s so appropriate seeing what pundits do daily on CNN/MSNBC/MSM…not to mention The Squad…

I like that…I’m going to use it…
commented 2019-08-21 21:57:19 -0400
I agree with you. I have been watching CBC and CTV lately to see how they’re spinning the Trudeau scandal.
I can’t take it for long before I’m swearing at them (especially that Jennifer broad on CTV. She is a real &#%^ )

Very insightful Joel.
1. Omar: you certainly didn’t write that little speech, did you Omar? She may want to review it first before she reads it to the media.
2. Self hating whites: Merkel
3. Schools are not permitted to quote or teach the ten commandments. Though shalt not kill would be a good one to keep mass shooters at home. Religion is eliminated from schools because it just may give kids guidance and purpose in life?
4. Some Liberal Catholics claim there is too much of a connection with Judaism.
5. Even altruism has an agenda.
6. Even I fact check information I reference.

I think ‘those pollsters’/establishment media tactics…are manifesting the desperation of the globalist conspiracy that’s attacking Canada from within…under, I suppose, the feckless talking-head-of-hair, Jihadi-Justin-Groper, and the LPC Clown Show.
Ha ha ha.

The grossest of fake news, comes from Trudeau’s mouth. Comic Books like the Globe and Mail and the Red Star base the level of their fake news by the average intelligence of of their readers.
The hate of the Jewish people, per Country, is the indicator of the amount of influence that the Muslims have over said Countries. Right now, judging by the level of hate, Canada is under the control of Muslims….Trudeau being their Dancing Boy.
