It’s Fake News Friday on the Candice Malcolm Show!
Today, Candice walks us through the latest faux outrage fake news narrative that the legacy media has directed at the Leader of the Opposition.
Last week, Liberal Heritage Minister Pascale St-Onge said that the CBC would indeed be entitled to a significant portion of the $100M the Trudeau government managed to squeeze out of Google to pay out to the dying legacy media in Canada.
This, of course, would be in addition to the approximately $1.3B CBC gets from taxpayers each and every year.
It was a little odd, then, that CBC this week announced that it would be laying off between 600 and 700 employees.
Merry Christmas! Not so much at the state broadcaster.
To add insult to injury, CBC’s hopeless CEO Catherine Tate was interviewed on her own network and couldn’t seem to answer the basic question of whether executives would be receiving Christmas bonuses this year. The Canadian Taxpayers Federation revealed that CBC paid out some $16M last year in executive bonuses alone.
Opposition Leader Pierre Poilievre noticed this, and posted about it on social media.
Well, apparently, according to our brilliant legacy media, this makes Poilievre the real villain of the story.
See their silly reactions and watch Candice break down the facts and explain how Twitter contributed to the total breakdown of trust in the Canadian media.
