This article (below) of today entitled why “Can You Trust Your Paper's Business Pages?” is a huge expose of the Globe’s mishandling and distorted handling of business news. The very thing that I have been fighting now for three years as the Globe lies to Canadians about Harper’s false premise for the income trust tax through various techniques at its disposal, and FAILS totally in reporting on the trusts tax’s litany of negative consequences.
That’s we have the CBC (in theory at least?). Why has the CBC not disclosed Harper’s lie to Canadians about tax leakage? Why has the CBC nor reported on the litany pf negative consequences of Harper’s trust tax, and the associated “welfare loss” it has caused ALL Canadians, but which can be STOPPED by the Marshall Plan? Why does the CBC allow itself to be scooped on this huge economic story by people like Diane Francis and her piece about the Marshall Plan in today’s Financial Post or by Greg Hebert of CFRA 580 radio in Ottawa via my interview of last Thursday? Why does the CBC refuse to pose the questions that is deluged with requests to ask, even on a show whose sole premise is “now it’s you turn to ask the politicians a question” and so far has evaded asking any of these tough and essential questions? See: HERE
Well, here’s your answer, as the CBC has merely made itself redundant by not acting like the public broadcaster it’s supposed to be:
Can You Trust Your Paper's Business Pages?
Too often, the section panders to a corporate audience. Canadians can't afford that bias.
