Trudeaumania II: Media Party is busy reliving 1968 -- so who is reporting the news?

Brian LilleyArchive

It began on election night with CTV's Craig Oliver and a few weeks later, it's obvious that the media party's hysteria about Justin Trudeau's victory hasn't waned.

There can be no doubt about it. The media party is in the tank for Justin Trudeau and the Liberals

Everything from the CBC encouraging viewers to send in their "selfies" with Trudeau to Global's Trudeau Cabinet playing cards reinforces something we already knew and confirms how important The Rebel will become if we want honest, unbiased reporting.

If you too think it's important to have media coverage that pushes back, please consider supporting what we need to do in Ottawa and help us do what the other guys won't -- tell the other side of the story.

We don't have a major corporate backer or $1B in taxpayer funding like the CBC but we want to provide fair but diligent coverage of the Trudeau government and with your continued help and support, we will.

Funny I never had a problem growing up. That’s the good thing about the internet you can insult anyone you like, trust me when I tell you if we were face to face you would reign it in, I wouldn’t ,but I guarantee you would. I’ve met guys like you all my life cheap shot artists that could never back up their bullshit, now crawl back to whatever basement you came from and leave the adults talk.

Kelvin .. that’s it?? I wouldn’t insult your late parents, I’d just say," Are you kidding? Kelvin??? That’s a refrigerator!" Poor kid.

You must be a writer for the CBC

So Don you want to insult my late parents? That’s the typical lefty response, childish low brow and unintelligent.
commented 2015-11-09 22:28:36 -0500
Jack…….So you’re a psychic now!!! I couldn’t be smart because I love The Rebel. I don’t have to worry about Ezra telling the truth. You wouldn’t know the truth if it hit you in the head. YOU watching the lefty media is the not so smart one.
commented 2015-11-09 22:28:07 -0500
Yvette … plain and simple … where is the SNN now? I watched them. Right until the end.
commented 2015-11-09 22:17:21 -0500
Don, you insinuated that Sun News went bankrupt because their ridiculous reporting turned off people. Well I guess if you think telling the truth is ridiculous, then so be it. Sun were fair & balanced, but lefty doesn’t see that. There was always a guest with a different opinion on the show to debate the topic at hand. They went bankrupt because they had no help from CRTC, until it was too late & the owner was a liberal who later campaigned for the separation of Quebec from the rest of Canada. Who needs enemies when you have friends like these???
Jack….So News Media TV is doing comedy now? Well I must admit. They are a riot alright.

Hack Carter seeems to have picked up the urbanite elite troll slack, some new names here, but sure is the same of old bullshit outta these urbanite elite douches… Be “progressive” or you’re dinosaur. Well being “progressive”, ultimately means being a socialist, so no… it doesn’t matter if you call it “progressive” or “correct” or whatever, it’s still communism and we won’t tolerate it.

Maybe Canada rejects Harper and the bible-thumping prostitution and cannabis pieces of legislative refuse… But I wonder what a far-right small government libertarian could garner, de-regulating drugs, staying the hell out of people’s affairs. We know the left will be anti-white racists who will tax, sell, and borrow to support their reckless spending. People are gonna be sick of them too… Socialists like Kathleen Wynne are absolutely fucking despised.

Its not just one “party” that young people dislike, it’s that they don’t care about politics AT ALL. They think both sides are full of shit, and the left KNOWS this, that’s why they’re pushing for mandatory voting, because they see it’s not just “Conservatives” that young people are sick of. If mandatory voting isn’t installed, elections may start to look not so legit, no “mandate”, no matter who is crowned the winner.

Jack said, "That’s good that you go to all the conservative news sources and websites that cater to you, so there is no need to complain about media sources that don’t cater to you, but that cater to OTHER Canadians. "

I also stated that I go to CBC, CTV, Global, CPAC, CNN, MSN. I guess you missed that part of my comment.

Jack said, "Holding to traditional attitudes – while being afraid of change or innovation. "

Yes, I understand that conservatives have a wide variety of policies, but there are a core group of policies that conservatives believe in, and “Holding to traditional attitudes – while being afraid of change or innovation” is not them at all. That is your misconception of a conservative, not an actual conservative.

“Anyone born in 1985 and beyond probably doesn’t give a shit about your traditional attitudes and encourages change and innovation, since that is clearly what is happening in society today. "

Maybe, but there are some values that should never be lost, that change is bad, such as the family unit, belief in hard work and earning your own living, supporting and being part of your community as much as you can, giving what you can to the poor and helping others, small government – only what is needed, low taxes and let the individual decide what to do with the money for which they worked so hard. These are just a few of the core values that should never be lost regardless of what change society has done.

Your concept of “change and innovation” is not necessarily what all people hold to. What makes your concept of change and innovation better than mine or the conservatives that I know?

Yvette,

It’s impossible to please everyone. Someone is always going to complain. You can’t be all things to all people.

There is conservative media out there for you. Read it and watch it.

The fact that you love The Rebel tells me that maybe you are not smart enough to realize that Ezra is telling you the story that HE wants to tell and quite often, it’s not even half true.
commented 2015-11-09 21:44:26 -0500
Jack C. ….CBC is not there just to please us……Well since they have no problem taking money from taxpayers whether they’re liberal/conservative/NDP, etc, they should be pleasing everybody, by being fair & balanced,, but they don’t even know what that means. The other media is also biased, but do it on their own dime. Disgusting seeing Tweedle Dee & Tweedle Dumb running down the stairs, dressed like twins, comparing ties in the limo. Wow! Mans bridge is really going to hold Trudeau’s feet to the fire from now own.
Jack how come it’s OK for you to to express your opinions as much as I disagree with you, but it’s not OK for conservatives to do the same? You should be very thankful to The Rebel for not deleting your comments like your beloved CBC does.
Jack, I haven’t watched CBC or CTV in years & the Canadians watching are too stupid to realize that they are not sophisticated enough to realize that they are never told the whole story, but only half truths.

Peter,

What conservative viewpoint do you want people to understand?

Even the definition of conservative isn’t exactly appealing to a whole new generation of people that want to move forward.

Holding to traditional attitudes – while being afraid of change or innovation.

Anyone born in 1985 and beyond probably doesn’t give a shit about your traditional attitudes and encourages change and innovation, since that is clearly what is happening in society today.

You are a dinosaur – in terms of the kind of conservative that you are. I mean there are mainstream conservatives that are progressive – but I am sure you wouldn’t call them a real conservative.

Your version of conservative is dying out. That is a fact.
commented 2015-11-09 21:07:30 -0500
Don and Jack could you guys pull your heads out of each other’s asses. I couldn’t hear what you said.
commented 2015-11-09 21:06:02 -0500
Peter,

When have I insulted you?

That’s good that you go to all the conservative news sources and websites that cater to you, so there is no need to complain about media sources that don’t cater to you, but that cater to OTHER Canadians.

It’s win/win for everyone. Some news sources are going to hate Trudeau right from the get go and some are going to hate Trudeau from the get go. We can get every angle possible with various news sources and make up our mind.

There is no reason for anyone to complain with the countless media sources available.

Philip,

Rick Mercer and 22 Minutes both made fun of Trudeau during the election.

Your welcome.

But a comedy show isn’t required to attack conservatives this week and then liberals next week. You need to get it out of your mind that comedy needs to be fair and balanced. Unfortunately for you, conservatives give comedy writers endless material – be it in Canada or America.
commented 2015-11-09 20:55:34 -0500
That’s the difference between you and I , Peter. I keep my conversations clean. Not in the gutter. That’s a sign of weakness. That’s okay though. Whatever makes you comfortable … stick with it. Well done.

Don said, “Unfortunately , after the Harper years, I have no money to donate.”

Yes, Harper had the belief that people should get off of their lazy asses and get out and work. That would explain why you “lost” money. But now that we have a socialist Justin Trudeau government, maybe you can get back on the dole, sucking off Canadians. Then you will be back in the money, free money, like a lazy asshole.

Don Cloud said, "Peter I’m surprised you keep wondering what the real media is. "

No Don, I am not wondering “what the real media is”.

Now pay attention, I asked in response to you saying that theRebel is not a real Media site, “So Don, in your mind what make a “real” media site.”

You are intentionally distorting what I asked. And you keep quoting my spelling mistake “sit” when I meant “site” and I corrected but you ignored.

So, Don, are you going to answer the question?

“So Don, in your mind what make a “real” media site.”
“So Don, in your mind what make a “real” media site.”
“So Don, in your mind what make a “real” media site.”
“So Don, in your mind what make a “real” media site.”

Gerald Butts was in World Wildlife Fund, a UN globalist tool. I’m getting nervous about this Paris summit.

Agenda 21 coming to a town near you, staged crises, world war, economic calamity.

What do you mean Rick, so if I was to call Don a stupid bed wetting communist dupe who wants to have Justin’s baby, I would get flagged?

Don your REAL MEDIA lies like a carpet, and how did Harper result in you having less money , oh yeah you had no job.
commented 2015-11-09 19:44:54 -0500
JAck Carter the left attacked Harper form the get go you hypocrite, i am not happy, and they are supposed to be non partisan , of course ignorant people like you miss that part. Sorry it is not everyones job to kiss this morons ass.

Peter Netterville said: “What are you talking about, Don? Excuse me if I am wrong, abut are you being an asshole? Is it not a good thing to have a Conservative voice in media?” Lefties hate alternate opinions and will do anything they can to shout or shut it down! Hence the sudden appearance of a flock of lefties on this site. Call them out on their B.S. and flag any personal attacks/insults. Hopefully site administration will respond accordingly!
commented 2015-11-09 18:47:26 -0500
Crap Don, if you didn’t have money for the last 10 years, you’re fucked now
commented 2015-11-09 17:59:30 -0500
Peter I’m surprised you keep wondering what the real media is. This “sit” is the real media. Any “sit” that is still out there is real. The not real ones are the dead “sits”. The ones gone bankrupt because their ridiculous reporting turned people off enough to stop supporting them.The ridiculous ones that constantly had to do their minions apologizing for them. Have no fear though. Those “sits” have a habit of rising from the bankrupt ashes as long as fools will donate money. I love the Rebel. Unfortunately , after the Harper years, I have no money to donate. Perhaps after a couple of Trudeau years I will have.
commented 2015-11-09 17:37:02 -0500
I agree Brian. On many of the online media sties I have visited I get the impression they are being written by star struck teenage girls not news people. It’s not hard for me to imagine the role the press plays in allowing a dictator to come to power. Not saying Trudeau is but if he did go that way could we really say he didn’t warn us from his praise of the basic dictatorship of China and the way the press didn’t eat him alive for that? Sure it would be easy to turn the economy around on a dime when you can kill or jail your opponents. Is he really OK with what happened in Tiananmen square? Let’s just hope the honeymoon ends soon.
commented 2015-11-09 17:35:15 -0500
Oh okay Don, so you have no intention on explaining what you consider to a “real” media site.
commented 2015-11-09 17:30:35 -0500
BTW I’m here for " more fearless news and commentary you won’t find anywhere else". And it’s true. The news is fearless as well as the commentary. Which means I can state my own opinion also.And you can, yours. If the previous government had done a great job, they would have been elected into a majority again. But, 4 years as a majority, somehow caused the people to change so much, they elected the opposition into a majority. Time will tell …
