Twitter’s and Facebook’s decision to block sharing of a New York Post story about Hunter Biden is an egregious act of censorship, but anyone surprised by it hasn’t been paying attention. Even so, the solution to this form of intervention in online speech needs to come about in culture, not through regulation, True North’s Andrew Lawton says.
Also, accountant Neal Winokur joins the show to discuss his new book The Grumpy Accountant, a call for a simpler approach to filing and paying taxes in Canada.
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.
