A New York woman has lost her dog, her job, and her reputation after calling the cops on a black birdwatcher in Central Park. The birdwatcher’s own Facebook post tells another side of the story, however. But even if it didn’t, the social media mob’s vicious, unrelenting and disproportionate attacks are rarely, if ever, deserved, True North’s Andrew Lawton says.

Also, pro-life author Jonathon Van Maren joins the show to debunk a new documentary about pro-choice litigant-turned-pro-life activist Norma McCorvey, AKA Jane Roe.

A Canadian broadcaster and columnist, Andrew serves as a journalism fellow at True North and host of The Andrew Lawton Show.

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.
