Numerous Canadian journalists have signed an open letter calling for the media outlets to cover the Israel-Hamas conflict in a way that accuses Israel of “ethnic cleansing,” surrendering even the illusion of objectivity. True North’s Andrew Lawton talks about the refusal by many in the media and in politics to condemn Hamas as a terror organization.

Also, Drew Barnes, one of two Alberta MLAs expelled from the UCP caucus for criticizing Jason Kenney, joins the 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.
