Every Friday evening on Rebel Roundup, we get together with other Rebel contributors to review the week's headlines, from the serious to the absurd.
Settle in and enjoy!
* While the year is young, did we just collectively witness the worst example of fake news in 2019 – namely, that story depicting a teenager with a Kentucky Catholic School being vilified for supposedly disrespecting a native elder?
* Once upon a time, former Edmonton Journal reporter, Paula Simons, was a free press champion. So what happened? Well, she received a senate appointment from Justin Trudeau and now it seems she's taken a vow of silence when it comes to the provincial government in Alberta interfering in press freedom.
Sheila Gunn Reid will explain all.
* In the department of “what were they thinking”, is Gillette’s new and not-so-improved ad campaign that suggests too many men embrace so-called “toxic masculinity” supposed to make guys want to buy Gillette razors and shaving cream?
Martina Markota joins us to explore the question.
* And finally letters. I’ll share some of your feedback on my commentary on the infamous “Tiffany” Moore, that freaky femme who freaked out in a GameStop store over being mis-gendered?
