MSM = people hired to promote the popularity/ideas of their employers.

That's his own fault. How do you expect them to react?
Would you rather he buy the media off with taxpayer dollars like Trudeau does?

If anyone doesn't like liberal news (or far right news for that matter) switch the channel and consume what you want to consume. Most of us are intelligent and thoughtful people who consume everything with open eyes and a pragmatic sense of suspicion and draw our own conclusions.

People (and the media) are skewed in both directions.

Trump has successfully polarized this like no other president ever has before.

Trudeau has done the same here as well, albeit, to less of an extent.

The funding of the CBC was long before twinkle toes took office.

I don't believe any tax dollars should go to any media.

And, not all media outlets here are pro Trudeau.

The media here in Canada is certainly not as dramatic (or obviously dramatic) when you compare it to the MSNBC or FOX garbage so many consume south if the border as "trusted media" outlets.

You're correct.
NON PARTISAN here, but it's astounding how often I read on this forum about our bought and paid for left media. There is a great number doing the same things from the right.
Post Media. How do they lean, how many titles under their direction, What are some of their Canadian Titles? who actually owns them? What country actually owns them?
Sheesh, it's clear now, all of the media sucks and lies, unless of course they are the ones that meet my narrative and the ones that further strengthen preconceived ideas I have. If the pause by Trudeau (he's a turd) is the straw the opposite of the left has to draw, they are really down to bugger all. Quite frankly, that's a lose lose situation in regards to how everyone who is angry about response would respond to any response he'd have given, even if Scheer had written it.

You’re right I should have amended my statement To read .I do not respect or trust the mainstream media. They are lazy and all seem to have an agenda.

That said , I do like Joshua Philips of “Crossroads” epoch times. they may be sympathetic towards Trump as you say ,but he presents the uncut videos and whole quotes in his stories and leaves it at that. seems to do a lot more legwork than just forming an opinion and presenting it as fact.

Surprised he didn’t somehow blame this on global warming.

The majority of "news" the general public tv watcher has access to isn't any of the above. I believe I caught a clip of fox back in the day when Geraldo was a reporter. Heard of the rebel (is it a tv news station?). Others I've never heard of. In Canada, we have CBC, Global, and CTV. All left leaning. Seems most radio stations as well. Even most talk shows nowadays are extreme wingnut left. I gave up watching the news a long time ago because of that.
It sure does seem to be having the desired effect on the masses though. Turning them into sheep

I wish that he would "pause for dramatic effect" when crossing in front of an oncoming train.

Just curious, what is it that makes you think they are a viable source? Left leaning stuff is all bad, what makes their right leaning stuff right? Is it simply because they validate ideas and beliefs?

As for them being sypathetic towards Trump, they are the LARGEST spender on Facebook ads promoting trump outside of his campaign itself. That's more than being sympathetic. Lots of good articles out there about the Epoch Times.

I think it is real clear that the only media worth trusting is the one we choose to trust.
I am not saying I believe nothing they present but this is what they are:
Quote:
U.S.-based, Chinese-rooted outlet that “usually straddles the line between an ultraconservative news outlet and a conspiracy warehouse” and has been spending some serious money on Facebook ads — but for Donald Trump
Quote:
It's run by a religious sect that believes judgment day, which sends those they label “communists” to Hell⁠, is 30 years late—and that Trump is making it happen
I personally will not buy most of their stuff, but maybe that is because I have already decided judgement day and hell are laughable myths. That's how preconceived ideas effect our choices.

I'd say in today's world, all of those above "news sites" are very easily accessed by the masses. In fact, roughly 2/3 of the news people get comes from internet sources (not TV as it once was).

And … I will agree ….. if you blindly consume, you will become a sheep.

This cuts both ways for both the left and the right.

This is not a "blind sheep" issue exclusive to the left - that was my point - there are just as many "blind sheep" consuming the right leaning sources too.

He paused because........................................... .................................................. .................................................. ...................he couldn’t decide between “uh, um duh, er,ah” and his go to move of “it was Steven Harpers” now that’s at least a twenty one second decision for that walnut sized brain!

The only one more thing that was missing in his 21 second pause was him starting to pick his nose....

This pause was well thought out and the question was probably planted in the audience. Remember this guy was a drama teacher. The use of the pause in conversation is a known technique. It was to make him look like he actually thought his way through a question. He treats everyone around him as well as the general public like they/we are too mindless to keep up with his vastly superior brain.
He is a racist tyrant who thinks he should be our benevolent dictator.

The reason for the silence in the pause, not even the typical “uh, um, wa, fff, duh” is because he can’t stutter and listen to what they’re telling him to say in his earpiece at the same time. He truly is a puppet. I bet if you look closely at his pants there’s a hole in the back where they can stick their arm up to make his mouth move.

You people have it all wrong. The reason for the 21 sec pause was he was figuring out what to say, and he blew it. He did not have his telepromter geared up for that question. What a sorry excuse for a person in charge, but we voted him in, I did not, but somebody did, so we have to take the consequences.

It was staged to put himself in the lime light!!!
And the media fell for it and it made world news.
Sad state of affairs when Trudy makes world headlines.
What should be world headlines, is how he avoids all Canada's problems.
Is a racist Hypocrite and never answers a question!!

The answer is simple, he cannot respond to a direct question, nor answer one with any real relation to the said question. Especially if it has any consequences to him or his simpering party.
