Polls: Media elites are still out of touch

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Jerry Agar here: As I explained on last night's show (while guest hosting for Ezra, who's in Israel on assignment): Even after the damning criticism they received about their U.S. election coverage, the mainstream media remains stubbornly disconnected from what the average citizen believes.

It’s simple… After some fifty plus years of collective leftward drift in the Canadian news media, how do you expect anybody to get a beer or be patted on the bum or be “high-fived” at the nearest Press Club unless you also echo “the party line”?… It’s a given… Because the alternative – any conservative opinion – is shit pants scary…

Allan Peterson i have as well, he just hides from it and can never bring forth any fake news from the Rebel.

Jack, I was commenting on your claim that no one could give evidence of CBC fake news. I did. I hope others will add to it.
I don’t doubt Leitch couldn’t get elected since we voted in Trudeau. Proof positive that the CBC has done a thorough job of brainwashing canadians. I like to keep their socialist soap out from between my ears. But a day of reckoning is coming. Living in the world of make believe doesn’t change the painful reality that is coming:

“By the rivers of Babylon,
There we sat down and wept,
When we remembered Zion.
Upon the willows in the midst of it
We hung our harps.
For there our captors demanded of us songs,
And our tormentors mirth, saying,
“Sing us one of the songs of Zion.”
How can we sing the Lord’s song
In a FOREIGN LAND ?”

Name calling and corruption, manipulation, is all the liberals have.
commented 2017-03-08 10:58:34 -0500
Not to mention the media did the exact same thing to Harper that they tried to do to Trump, only peoples eyes weren’t as open as they are now.
commented 2017-03-08 10:56:35 -0500
Trump has more Canadian support than the little liberal criminals have, do not let the corrupt media propaganda machine tell you any different.
commented 2017-03-08 10:54:51 -0500
More liberal criminals dining at the troth, Canadians are getting wise now and the little liberal trolls will be called out.
commented 2017-03-08 07:18:37 -0500
Name calling, jack? Is that all you’ve got?
Out of touch?
Best we ignore you here.

Elton Braun,

Were you in a coma during the Trump campaign and the election? You would have had to be if you think Canadians supported Trump.

Every single poll confirms this. If you don’t like this one, I can provide more.

The proof is also the fact that Kellie Leitch is unelectable. She won’t win leader and she sure as shit will NEVER be PM.

Jack Coverdale since you support the left and their media and m103, then you should not be able to speak freely.
commented 2017-03-08 00:56:57 -0500
The media was wrong about the election Jack, or did you miss that? And by the way still waiting for you to prove that CBC did not lie about the troop torture, the Rob Ford 911 call, the attack in Calgary, the Levin trial. LMAO!
commented 2017-03-08 00:54:57 -0500
Jack Coverdale are you predicting again? How did that work out last time? And the CBC has lied and omitted many times, i have shown you that and you can never show me when the Rebel has lied. LMAO!
commented 2017-03-08 00:53:01 -0500
Jay Kelly we do have the same thing in Canada, and you know it.
commented 2017-03-08 00:25:11 -0500
Do Rebel readers not know the difference between public opinion in the United States and public opinion in Canada? Some commenters have raised the question.

Many readers of The Rebel are actually Americans who live in the United States. There is nothing wrong with that, and their opinions (including their comments on this web-page) are perfectly valid.

Many readers of The Rebel live who live in Canada follow U. S. politics very closely through outlets like CNN and FOX News. They get all riled up by stories they see from the U. S. and suppose that we in Canada are in the same boat.

Many readers are well aware that they live in Canada, and that news coverage in this country is different from news coverage in the United States.

The Rebel makes no secret that it plays on these different perspectives. In fact, sometimes the Rebel pretends to be an American outlet.

We should not underestimate the intelligence of Rebel readers, despite what the Rebel itself says.

Jack commented,
“It’s pretty clear that the vast majority of Canadians don’t like Trump – regardless of how they feel about Trudeau. It’s the very reason why Kellie Leitch is pretty much hated across the board and has zero chance at winning anything. She is viewed as female Trump, but guess what – this is Canada. Not America.”
Where is the proof of your claims? The CBC said so? Because the CBC hates conservatives and would never lie to us? You need to back that up with facts.
commented 2017-03-08 00:10:20 -0500
The media does not care what you think.

They will tell you what you need to know.

And that is why the mainstream media needs a good kick in the gonads.
commented 2017-03-07 23:39:30 -0500
What is the poll used in the video? Iwould like to look into it.
commented 2017-03-07 23:14:16 -0500
Jack you can’t hounastly believe trudope is doing a good job ? He hasn’t done one thing for Canada other then put us in dept . Yet the MSM keep lying on all there sites the polls say everyone loves him . Who loves him the family members of all the people doing the polls ? Why don’t they actually poll real people other then the elites in all the city’s and then post the actual results .
commented 2017-03-07 21:34:09 -0500
Allan Peterson,

What does any of that have to do with a supposed Canadian love for Trump that doesn’t actually exist. Canadians would be supporting Kellie Leitch big time if that was the case – not laughing at what a joke she is.

It seems conservatives in Canada have a hard time telling the difference between Canadians and Americans. Trump would not win here. I hope you understand that.
commented 2017-03-07 20:53:50 -0500
OK, Jack. How about the CBC mocking Trump for his comments on Sweden? He has been proven correct. The Swedish government and media have been proven to lie and that is what the CBC laggards based their mockery on. How about the MSM (CBC included) failing to report on the riots in Rinkeby? How about the CBC failing to report the Rotherham rape gangs? They did eventually get around to reporting on the Paris riots but first they had to manipulate the narrative.

Jack, those are just a few off the top of my head. I’m sure others can fill you in in more detail.
commented 2017-03-07 20:47:47 -0500
Right you are, Keith. Canada has no nation-wide conservative voice. In the US there are probably a dozen. So, yes, we are getting brainwashed by the incessant blathering of the propaganda arm of the LPC. That’s why I like to listen to KFYR out of Bismarck, ND. I can listen to Rush Limbaugh grill the left on their hypocrisy. The “alt” media is only a turn of the dial away. I’m guessing that the gov’t will soon set up radio jamming towers on the border like the Soviets had. But, of course, there is always The Rebel. Thank the Lord for The Rebel!

The reason that the MSM and the left hate The Rebel is that they thought they had the brainwashing just about sewn up when along comes Ezra, Brain, et al and rains on their parade. More people are getting their news from The Rebel on the real issues every day. The leftoids can have the fluff, subservience, lies and avoidance.

“Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who [a]substitute darkness for light and light for darkness;
Who [b]substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!”

Hey Jerry,

Where is the proof of your claims. You can’t just say that the CBC and other media is wrong. You need to back it up with facts.

It’s pretty clear that the vast majority of Canadians don’t like Trump – regardless of how they feel about Trudeau. It’s the very reason why Kellie Leitch is pretty much hated across the board and has zero chance at winning anything. She is viewed as female Trump, but guess what – this is Canada. Not America.
commented 2017-03-07 20:05:01 -0500
At least that’s good news they’d choose President Trump over Trudeau for something!
commented 2017-03-07 19:21:57 -0500
The biggest problem with Canada’s MSM is that most people actually believe them.

I suggest we send the Prime Minister letter after letter; the old fashioned way. Overwhelm his office staff with opening envelopes, reading the contents and then trying to decide what to do with all this paper. Keep sending the same letter weekly (let’s pick a date). If all of us coordinate our efforts, we can tell him exactly what we think of : M103; the need for immigration reform; proper and just vetting of immigrants; deal with all the illegal crossings into Canada; stop wasting tax payer money; get a grip on reducing debt; no additional Syrian refugees (help them in their own country); you get the idea….sound off. Keep the language clean, and remember, no postage needed. Send your thoughts to

The globalists have bought and paid for our governments, the media, our legal systems, our education systems; all by using money funneled from the UN for our destruction. This is why they are constantly lying and deceiving the public. And is why they are trying to shut down free speech!

The fake stream media will remain out of touch they are not neutral scribes, they are ideologues fully immersed in left wing dogma.
