R.I.P. dishonest media: Hillary wasn’t the only casualty of Trump's win

David MenziesMission Specialist

Billary Clinton wasn’t the only casualty following the November 8th Presidential election. The other dead-on-arrival corpse was the once proud craft of journalism.

The carnage isn’t just limited to the USA. Journalism’s pretty much dead or dying, financially, morally and ethically in so many other places, including Canada.

South of the border for the past 18 months, we witnessed the slobbering love affair between an overwhelmingly leftwing media and the Democrats.

It was wince-inducing to see mainstream media outlets morphing into stooges for Hillary; turning a blind eye to Benghazi and trying not to dwell too much on her troubles with an unsecured server resulting in classified emails being hacked.

While Trump was mercilessly vilified for some crass reality TV comments, Hillary was fawned over. Considering the adoration Lady Clinton received from CNN, I’m surprised they didn’t simply rebrand themselves as the Clinton News Network.

Progressive zealots spout an odious agenda but they’re not stupid. They continue to infiltrate the four P’s of society: professors, politicians, police, and the press.

It’s all about shaping public opinion to fit their narrative. And while mainstream newspapers have always held biased viewpoints, they used to be confined to the op-ed pages but have now moved to the front page, posing as actual news.

Why can’t biased media outlets come clean and declare their bias upfront? Can’t we at least be honest about the dishonesty?

There was a silver lining though. Those media outlets that tried to cook the outcome of the American election, utterly failed.

Tuesday’s election was all about a majority of Americans rejecting elitism, including media elitism.

Fox News is owned by the Sheik of Energy “I’m the Sheik of Energy….the oil belongs to me”

And Fox News is a straw man caricature of the right that is easy for the rest of the kabuki theatre MSM leftards to beat up.

Who did you think they were fooling?

It was downright chilling to see the self-satisfied,arrogant Peter Mansbridge sitting in a superior posture beside Justin Trudeau and talking to him in the limo on the way to Trudeau’s swearing-in ceremony after he was elected. It was like a scene from The Godfather, with Mansbridge like a mafia boss sending out a subliminal message and controlling vibes to Trudeau to let him know who he was really beholden to for winning.

Hate to break it to you folks but we are the ones that it is going to end badly for.

Make no mistake people we in the Western world are now under attack by the Globalist politicians and the elite class.

The war for the new world order has begun, and we are going to lose because nobody believes it is happening and therefore will not stand against it.

Divisions have been created and left to fester, we are so busy fighting each other over petty differences that mean nothing, while we are being taken over.

A damn shame what our Veterans went through for our Country, my own father included, and here we are on the brink and no one believes it is happening.

I think I’ll take it for a test drive…Trolls are all a bunch of lumpish, rump-fed moldworts and fustilarians!
Thank you…

Connie Gravelle—Trump just hired a well known climate-denier to head the EPA. This alone will prove Trump to be one of the best Presidents ever.

Yes, I am a bit of a News Junkie. Watching the majority of the news outlets go after Trump hammer and tong day after day while even running defense for Ms Clinton was as bare faced obvious as it gets. Of course our own CBC and CTV were also in Trudeau’s pocket. I am thankful to the Rebel in Canada and Fox in the US. Commentators posing as journalists will end badly. It always does.

Watching CBC on election night was hilarious. It was better than any of their comedies. Mansfield really has turned himself into a clown. The sad part is this is costing us a $billion a year.
commented 2016-11-13 15:08:14 -0500
The last year has a whole host of examples as to the reason Canada does not belief the media, we have seen it with our own eyes how racist they have been, along with willful withholding of news that is not in keeping with their bias, and flat out lies.

Not to mention our shame the CBC, they are traitors to this Country and nothing less.

Connie, “He is responsible for people not believing the media anymore.” That is too funny. Please tell us another funny. I spit out my coffee on that one. You opened your mouth and removed all doubt as to what a complete idiot you are. Is this another alias of yours Gordon Steele?

During the last election the Canadian media was biased for Trudeau. It sickened me to see how they said one negative thing after another about Harper. Laughing at Harper all the time and demeaning everything Harper said. Unfortunately Canadians fell for it
.The CBC was also promised a huge amount of money from Trudeau if he was elected.
The only reason Trudeau was elected was because he said he would make " WEED " legal.
No way would he have won that election without the “WEED” sell.

Along with weed, Canada is so far in the hole we may never be able to recover from it or climb out.
Trudeau has made sure of that. Bringing in so many refugees and supplying money and necessities.

You cannot even go to a doctors office anymore without feeling like you are in the Middle east.
The refugee crisis in Canada is sparking a huge waiting line to get in to see Doctors and to have operations done in a timely manner. PLus everything is free to these refugees,thanks to the taxes Canadians pay.

WHY DO YOU THINK HE IS RAISING TAXES, calling it a carbon tax. that money will never go towards fixing Canada’s environment, it will go to other countries that Trudeau promised money to, to fix that countries environment. It will go to Nato because Trudeau promised them more money.

Why is the rebel taking sides with Trump. He is a disgusting human being. He did e erything it took to fool his followers. He once said if he said something enough times over and over that people would believe him, even if it was a lie. He lies, lies, lies and lies. He is responsible for people not believing the media anymore. You can go ahead and gloat over his win, but the damage he has done is profound.
The rebel should be ashamed of themselves.

Sadly, CNN et al are still pounding sand about angel Clinton and the evil Trump. Someone should wake them up that the election is over and done with.

BTW, where is “president Barak H. Obama” and his lap dog Biden telling the demonstrators to stop? They made comments about Ferguson, NY, et cetera, when rioting was going on, so why not now? I know, they just love watching a good fight.

Its frightening to see how corrupt the entire system is.
CBC is full of women and gays. They have the few minorities thrown in there, to keep on the safe side.
CNN is all about being gay and black.
CTV, well, doesn’t know what to think so they just follow CBC.
Global, not worth mentioning.

Trump is already bypassing the media and setting the stage. Communication will be without media involved.
Loved it when he just walked away from and dismissed the media when asked an impertinent question at his first White House visit.

George Digler—1hr ago——Simple economics says, when a Business has only one customer, that customer will dictate the price that they will pay. They will do this knowing full well the business has no choice. The US has proved this by paying less than the world price for our oil.
Get all the customers you can; who cares if they are communist. Do you really think that there is much difference between a Communist Gov’t , some of these EU Gov’ts or the Trudeau Gov’t telling us how to live every hour, or get charged by a Human Rights Court.

David Menzies, while I agree with most of what is in your article, the opening sentence referring to HRC as “Billery” totally undermines the point you are trying to make. If we are to demand non-biased reporting for ALL Americans, then we need to play by the rules too.

MSM……RIP. Now we have to guard against internet censors. Be vigilant!
commented 2016-11-13 11:03:45 -0500
I am so glad to see the MSM eat crow and get outed for being criminals. I laugh when I watch CNN and laugh even harder when I watch any Canadian news propaganda. One thing I disagree with Ezra on in an earlier piece is NAFTA. It’s terrible for the US and it’s terrible for Canada. Our labourers used to make good money. We could afford a nice house, vacations raise kids and still have a decent expendable income prior to NAFTA. Now we are making a joke of a wage that we would have paid our babysitter’s 25 years ago! NAFTA has killed our manufacturing industry as well and keeps wages very low for Canadians. In my plant, we have 2 guys over 70 who have to work because of the poor state of Canada’s labour force. I think our conservatives need to wake up here! Trump & Farage are right on this and our Conservatives are not representing the workforce at all! Big mistake on their part and could cost them greatly in the next election.

Legions of Hillary supporters are gobsmacked by the election because of their exclusive reliance on this deceitful leftwing media. When so many people are THAT ideologically-cloistered, and surrounded by like-minded folk who validate their misconceptions, then a day of reckoning is inevitable. Thanks for the riots, mainstream media!

Yvett well said , now if only we can wake up the rest of Canada to see what normal people see .

Trump thinks the Chinese are outsmarting us on every level, we keep shipping our wealth and jobs over seas. He sees it as a threat and Canada’s position of wanting to sell it’s oil to the communist regime of China is not going to fly.

It’s not just oil either. Canada has through the uranium one deal sold 30% stake to the Russians,

On top of that Canada has sold India uranium, who in the past has used our uranium to make nuclear weapons, and not just make the weapons they actually used them.

NAFTA needs scrapped, we need to go back to the drawing table

Trump wants energy independence , Amercican made energy , made with American technology’s and American labor.

Alberta’s oilsands on other hand , wants to expand to comunist markets, …We have seen the sale of oilsands assets to the Chinese government ( Opti – Nexen ) . They bring in TFW’s putting Canadians out of work and they build their modules over in South Korea ,.

To some extent they will need heavy oil for their refinery’s, so the sale of bitumen will not come to a halt over night , unless they retrofit their refinery’s…wich many are encouraging Trump to do.

I will work with the Americans any day , over the communists. It’s time to look at who our real friends are , <——-it’s not Alberta’s oilsands. Do you really want in bed with the communists ?

To quote Barak Hussein Obama’s favourite pastor:- “The chickens are coming home to roost”… Indeed they are!… But not in sense of the America-bashing scenario of Chicago’s “Liberation Theology” Pastor Wright… (Who, I assume, is by now deeply imbedded behind the walls of his new home in a multi-million dollar gated community?)… Journalism in the United States and Canada has been off the rails for decades now… Ditto large parts of Europe… OUR WESTERN SOCIETIES CANNOT SURVIVE WITH BLATANT LIES BEING SPUN DAILY BY PURVEYORS OF ‘ONE WORLDCAUSES, SOCIALIST PIPE DREAMS, AND DEMONSTRABLY FAILED ECONOMIC FANTASIES, UNDER THE GUISE OF " JOURNALISM"… It has not been so for decades now, starting with “advocacy journalism” in the 1970s, and has been perpetuated in journalism schools, and of course, in that which “pretends” to be the news ever since…

Journalism is dead because it committed suicide. During the election it made me sick and then very angry at the blatant lies the news reporters were vomiting out on TV. Even here the CBC, CTV, Global, etc. and all their commentators were disgusting and shameful as the only thing that came out of their mouths were lies. They have no credibility or integrity, and all of them are Traitors, they bash Canadian values, demonstrate disgust for our brave military, apologize for Muslim atrocities, support the globalist takeover, I hope the Trump Presidency will help change all this to the days when journalism was an honorable profession.

The stench from the lamestream media is nauseating. New York Times are being told by their readers they might be cancelling their subscriptions because of their Trump reporting & the Times is running scared & appealing to them not to do that, a little late for that & I hope they all cancel.
On Remembrance Day I wanted to watch the ceremonies so I click on CBC & Mansbridge is in my face, so I click on CTV & LA Flamme is in my face, so no other choice but to watch Global with Dawna Friesen & Tom Clark who’s more interesred in Trudeau’s shampoo then giving us the real news, thank goodness for The Rebel.
