    Fake News Friday | Another controversy, more claims of “racist attacks”

    Fake News Friday | Another controversy, more claims of “racist attacks”

    Last week, True North reported on how the Edmonton Downtown Business Association’s Holiday Light Up event won’t have a giant Christmas tree and how the City of Edmonton is refusing to step in to provide a tree due to the environmental impact. In response, the Canadian Press is reporting how the association and the mayor are now victims of “racist attacks.” The only problem? Nobody knows what these “racist attacks” actually are.
    Plus, Global News is freaking out about how Shopify is refusing to cut ties with online organization Libs of TikTok because the group doesn’t align with Global’s preferred political views.
    And, the Globe and Mail publishes an op-ed about how socializing after work is not inclusive of women and other marginalized groups. Such bravery.

    Fake News Friday | The media rushes to defend Trudeau’s latest international blunder

    Another international trip for Trudeau, another embarrassing moment for Canadians. This week, Chinese president Xi Jinping publicly criticized Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for allegedly leaking details of their conversation to the media. While international media outlets are reporting the incident accurately, those in Canada’s legacy media are rushing to defend Canada’s prime minister – even going as far as suggesting the public incident means “Trudeau is doing his job.”
    Plus, a Toronto Star columnist wants to hear more about “racism and hate crimes” during the Emergencies Act hearings.
    And, Canada’s state broadcaster claims crosswords are now racist. Yes, you read that correctly.

    Fake News Friday | The legacy media is FREAKING out over Musk’s Twitter takeover

    True North’s Sue-Ann Levy joins us for our favourite time of the week – it’s Fake News Friday! Here are this week’s awful takes, skewed coverage and the worst examples of fake news in the legacy media.
    Elon Musk has taken over Twitter and some Canadian media members are having a complete meltdown over the idea of paying $8 to become a verified user on Twitter. One journalist even went as far as suggesting Musk should pay him to stay on Twitter. What a time to be alive!
    And as the Emergencies Act hearings continue, Canadians can depend on the legacy media for their skewed coverage of the inquiry.
    Plus, as teachers in Ontario refuse to do their jobs and defy the Ford government’s back-to-work legislation, the legacy media suddenly cares about the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Where was the media’s outrage during the pandemic?

    Fake News Friday | CTV News is LITERALLY fake news!

    After a tight race, Winnipeg elected a new mayor this week – Glen Murray! No wait – Scott Gillingham! CTV News Winnipeg incorrectly declared Murray as the winner. After realizing its mistake, CTV had to retract its tweet after pushing literally fake news.

    Plus, Ontario Premier Doug Ford gets caught with his pants on fire after it was revealed the Public Order Emergency Commission repeatedly requested that he testify before the Public Order Emergency Commission.

    And to cap the show off – the legacy media loses their minds about RCMP officers wearing a Thin Blue Line patch. Yep, you guessed it — it’s racist or something.

    Fake News Friday | True North fact-checks Reuters fact-check

    Fake News Friday | True North fact-checks Reuters fact-check

    Reuters tries to fact-check a video reposted by True North where a Pfizer executive admits that its Covid vaccine was not tested for its ability to prevent transmission before hitting the market.
    The Public Order Emergency Commission is well underway and so far nothing has been brought forward proving the government needed to use the Emergencies Act… but that hasn’t stopped the legacy media from having the worst takes possible.
    Lastly, Pierre Poilievre is in the news again… this time because he doesn’t want to attend a dinner party held by the Parliamentary Press Gallery. Yup, the same press gallery who never fail to spin his words or heckle him during pressers. It’s no wonder he doesn’t want to go.

Canadian Gem

Smart and impactful interviews. Trusted news information. Candace has a style of interviewing and reporting where important questions are asked and she remains even keeled and concerted. It’s a pleasure to listen to, and a standard of journalism to admire.

Canadian Trumpers Gather Here

This podcast is not for rational level headed minds. It is geared towards conspiracy loving thinkers who would like to see Canada become like “merica”. It’s dripping in distorted nonsensical Fox News, Rebel, Alex Jones style drama. Chatter about fake news is hysterical inaccurate nonsense that isn’t based on reality. Unfortunately more people are falling for this complete nonsense as can be seen from other comments. Very sad.

Refreshing

It’s really nice to listen to a logical Independent strong minded and lady like Candace Melcolm. She is my 2nd favourite talk show host nest to JG in Sask. Great job Candace I love the show
