Being “political” – what it means and why you should and shouldn’t do it

What does it mean to be “political?” What does it mean to be “partisan?”

Understanding these terms can help you determine when politicians and news-makers are being political, when it’s appropriate and when it’s not.

True North’s Sam Eskenasi covers the basics in his latest video.

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.
