Daryl Morey tweeted an image saying “fight for freedom, stand with hong kong” causing an uproar amongst the NBA and it’s Chinese supporters. He’s now found himself on an apology tour to make up for the grievous sin of standing up for democracy.
For all of the efforts that the sports world is putting into their “woke” and “progressive” appearance, it’s disappointing to see them fail to support a basic principle such as this.
True North’s Anthony Furey discusses this latest upset.
We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.
Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.
How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.
This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
