While media outlets around the world ridiculed Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for his antics in the UK, legacy media outlets in Canada all came to the defence of the singing prime minister. That media bailout sure is paying off eh?

Plus, CTV News skews polling data and misleads Canadians about the popularity of the Trudeau Liberals.

And a Hill Times columnist celebrates the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

With a lot on their plates, Andrew Lawton and Harrison Faulkner try to make sense of these wild stories and unpack the most unhinged takes of the week.

Tune into Fake News Friday on True North!

Harrison Faulkner is producer and journalist for True North based in Toronto.

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.
