Report to offer ‘ideas’ for stemming crisis in Canada’s media sector: author

TERRY PEDWELL, THE CANADIAN PRESS  01.25.2017

2017-01-26-14_50_59

Canada’s news industry finds itself at a mission-critical crossroads, and needs a helping hand if it is to resume its role as a guardian of democracy, says the author of a major study coming Thursday that is expected to offer a road map of sorts.

 

We’re totally screwed. Our advertisers have figured out we can’t tell our readers how to think, what to buy and who to vote for. Because we don’t have any more readers! Give us money!

 

The Public Policy Forum study, funded in part by the federal Heritage Department, explores the dramatic decline in the newspaper industry over the past two decades, and how massive layoffs and revenue declines in the professional news business are affecting democracy.

 

Ah, yes. The federal government commissioning a study into the newspaper industry. A dramatic decline, they say. The last two decades, they say. Gee, what could have happened in the past two decades? Could it be the internet? The ability for people to fact-check corporate media’s claims in a matter of seconds?

Newspaper Death Watch

The report comes on the heels of what was just the latest in a series of layoffs by Postmedia, the country’s largest chain of daily-circulation newspapers.

 

Postmedia owns most of the big city newspapers in Canada, along with formee arch-rival and now corporate sister Sun Media. Both call themselves “conservative” editorially, just like the Toronto Globe and Mail. And, yes, they all want cash. 

 

The company issued layoff notices Tuesday to employees at the Ottawa Citizen, Montreal Gazette and Windsor Star after the company failed to reach a 20 per cent salary reduction target it set for itself last fall.

 

What? The typists, the whorespondents and presstitutes wouldn’t take a 1/5 pay cut? The greedy bastards!

 

Other news giants, including the Toronto Star and the Globe and Mail, have also cut staffing levels as they struggle with declining print advertising revenue.

Nor are television and radio newsrooms immune: Canada’s national broadcast regulator warned last year that nearly half of the country’s local TV stations could be off the air by 2020 without a revenue boost to pay for local news programming.

 

Really? Gee. That’s a shame. So…uh, where’s that “revenue boost” going to come from? Oh, wait. Don’t tell us…more taxes on cable subscribers. At least those that still subscribe to cable television. 

 

The report, authored by veteran Canadian journalist Edward Greenspon, is also expected to delve into the rise of “fake news” and offer suggestions for how government policies, as well as taxes and other laws, can be rewritten in response.

 

We were wondering when they would get around to “fake news.” Presumably, the typist Pedwell was not referring to claims of Torpedoes in the Gulf of Tonkin, the “accidental” attack of the U.S.S. Liberty by the government of israel, Kuwaiti babies being thrown out of incubators by Iraqi soldiers and the incubators themselves being stolen and relocated to Iraq, 19 brown guys living in caves causing the complete stand-down of NORAD and subsequently crashing airplanes into buildings, Saddam’s Nukular Bombs, Bashir al-Assad gassing his own Alewite supporters in full view of the U.N. chemical weapons inspectors on the very day of their scheduled visit…and those are just some of the lies that have gotten millions of people killed. 

 

Heritage Minister Melanie Joly ordered the study as part of an overall review of Canada’s media landscape, looking in particular at how it’s being affected by a shift to the Internet. A Commons committee has also carried out its own study and is expected to report to Parliament by spring.

 

Gee…isn’t there some way we can…oh, I don’t know, censor the internet. Can’t we make Canadians look only at things we want them to look at on the internet? Can’t we force their internet viewing habits, just like we do with television and radio? 

The findings indicate the industry is reaching a “crunch point,” if it isn’t already there, Greenspon said in a statement.

“This report is meant to offer insight into the state of news two decades into its existential crisis, as well as ideas for how to respond,” he said.

“We hope it will stimulate a necessary debate and necessary action, while understanding no story is ever at its end.”

 

“We hope they cut a check. Quick! The wolves are at my door! I don’t know how much longer I can hold off the repo man and the landlord!”

 

The report, entitled “The Shattered Mirror: News, Democracy and Trust in the Digital Age,” relied on a half-dozen roundtables, polling and focus group research in making findings about how Canadians perceive the relationship between the news industry and the country’s democratic institutions.

 

What would a good self-respecting official-sounding report be without two titles, separated by a colon?

The Canadian Press participated in the roundtables and research.

 

Of course. We need that cash ‘same as everyone else! Come on, government! We put our names and our reputations on the line in service to your lies. Now pay up!

In April, Joly launched a public consultation on media and Canadian content in a digital world that included town hall gatherings across the country.

 

Public consultations…that would involve going to the various newspapers – and their surrounding bars – and asking how much cash Ottawa can send their way? 

 

Those forums heard a range of suggestions, including calls for new fees or taxes on foreign-owned digital media players as a means of helping to prop up the domestic news industry.

 

Yeah. More taxes. On the foreigners! And send the cash our way! That’s the ticket!

Others, however, have pre-emptively scolded the government for even considering any kind of taxpayer-funded support for media outlets, arguing that audiences will ultimately turn toward new digital platforms to stay informed.

 

Uh, yeah. We already know we’re being propagandized. It’s not like we don’t see it already on the State Broadcaster. So once the Postmedia papers take the federal cash, along with the Sun papers (remember, Sun News Network went off the air because it couldn’t get a cable subsidy; and they were spinning their lies on behalf of the then-ruling regime), the Torstar rags and the Toronto Globe and Mail, we’ll know we’re officially being bullshitted. by everyone. So of course we’ll go running to independent media outlets.  Our Soviet friends knew they were being sold a sack of shit by the commies in 1989. The lies became more elaborate, more grandiose,, more illogical, they had no choice but to collapse in upon themselves.

Internet freedom advocacy group OpenMedia has petitioned against what it calls an Internet tax, but has asked federal Finance Minister Bill Morneau to consider applying sales taxes evenly across foreign online vendors operating in Canada.

 

Raise taxes. But do it quietly. And send it to us!

Martin O’Hanlon, president of media union CWA Canada, suggested one solution for Postmedia could see government regulations or incentives that allow for local non-profit corporations or foundations to run the newspapers, provided the company was willing to sell its media properties.

 

The Toronto Star hasn’t made a profit in years. The National Post has never made a profit.  Does that count?

In a report on Canada’s entertainment and media sector issued last summer, PricewaterhouseCoopers predicted steady growth in Internet advertising revenues, and an acceleration of the recent downturn in newspaper publishing.

 

That assumes of course, we’re willing to put up with corporate media web pages that take several minutes to load, and often literally never load due to coding error and endless loops caused by the various Google analytics, Facebook and Twitter extensions, the mouse-over ads, the expanding ads, the pop-up ads, the forced video players. 

Media firms have complained that, while their focus turns increasingly to online publishing, digital advertising revenues have not come anywhere close to replacing those previously generated from print ads.

That’s because they don’t have a clue what they are doing (see above). They have never tried accessing their own web pages outside the confines of their bunkers.

Joly’s office has called the shifts in news revenue streams “significant,” and said the government hopes its Canadian content consultations can help it assess how to best support the production of local, credible and reliable news and information.

 

“Canadian content…” Uh, boy…

Favour Canadian news publishers with tax changes and create digital journalism fund, new report urges Ottawa

SEAN CRAIG, FINANCIAL POST  01.26.2017

A new report commissioned by the federal government is urging Ottawa to consider changing tax laws to favour Canadian news publishers in the digital advertising market over foreign competitors and use the new revenue stream to establish an independent, publicly-subsidized journalism fund.

 

Yeah, let’s tax all of our competitors, and make sure we get the cash. We’re Canadian!

The recommendation comes from the independent think tank Public Policy Forum, which says advertising with foreign-owned websites should no longer be deductible under the federal Income Tax Act. This is already standard for print newspaper and broadcast advertising.

 

Yeah, who wants to advertise on Google, or Facebook or Twitter anyway when you have, oh, I don’t know, Sympatico. I mean, it’s not as if companies are spending that advertising money to actually REACH anybody. They just like spending money. 

Authored by former journalist Ed Greenspon, “The Shattered Mirror: News, Democracy and Trust in the Digital Age” issues a dire warning that the media industry in Canada is at a “crisis point” where a deficit of local reporting cause by falling revenues and cuts to newsroom threatens the country’s democracy.

 

Now aren’t you glad to have been a part of pushing all those lies for the past 30 years, Ed? You probably never thought we would have a way to fact-check you and call out your bullshit in a matter of seconds, did you? Ed?

independent_snowfalls_thing_past
On March 20, 2000, the London Independent newspaper prognosticated that, within 10 years, snowfall would disappear. Who would have thought such claims would be accessible not only 10 years on, but in perpetuity?

The report recommends that, by extending a ten per cent witholding tax on advertising in foreign digital media, the government could create a new revenue stream of $300 to $400 million annually. It suggests Ottawa use that revenue stream to finance a new fund to support digital news innovation in Canada, which would provide direct funding to new organizations that are determined to provide a “civic function,” with a particular emphasis on local and indigenous content.

 

More taxes. Revenue streams. “Local and indigenous content.” Yeah, that’s what we’re looking for. 

 

The new Future of Journalism and Democracy Fund, which would act as an independent agency, should be seeded with a start-up investment of $100 million and financed by the witholding tax on foreign advertising in the years to follow, according to the report. Part of its mandate should be to provide legal advice and assistance to support start-up news organizations “so they can pursue their journalism without fear of reprisal.”

 

“Fear of reprisal?” You mean journalists would be free to report on matters not favorable to israel, for example? And, did someone say “future?” What future?!

2017-01-26-15_39_50-courageous-canadian-journalist-fired-for-criticism-of-israel-_-jews-for-justice

Would this Journalism and Democracy fund protect people like Ernst Zundel or Arthur Topham from Richard Warman, Harry Abrams, and other professional jews and the serially “offended?

arthur-topham-normal-rockwell-freeom-of-speech

 

The new tax change, which would also include extending the GST to foreign online ads, could notably draw revenue from foreign tech giants Google and Facebook, which the report says “were seen as suitable sources of funding for public programs, voluntary or not.” Together, Google and Facebook earn about two thirds of the online advertising revenue in Canada.

 

Facebook’s and Google’s “metrics” are fraudulent. So, why not tax it? One can only wonder who it is that is paying the advertising bills for “pay-per-click” advertising when one inadvertently clicks on a clickbait ad, realizes his mistake and quickly exits the newly-opened browser. Are advertisers aware they are paying to support an army of millions of people around the world who are paid to do nothing but click on ads?

“I think what the report does is validates what I and many other people who run newspapers in Canada have been saying all along,” said Paul Godfrey, CEO and President of Postmedia, the country’s largest newspaper publisher and owner of the National Post. “There are no actual solutions here, but there are some good ideas.”

 

Don’t you love these neocons? Editorially, Postmedia newspapers despise government. And rightfully so. But if there is a way a new government program and a new taxation grid can start sending cash Paul’s way, he’s all for it. Hey, Paul…how about telling the truth once in a while? Maybe…start with 9/11 and work your way back – or forwards – from there. 

Last year, the Trudeau government enlisted the Public Policy Forum to study the Canadian news media industry and the impact the digitization of the economy has had on the business.

The report, which was mostly funded by the federal government, contains 12 total recommendations, which also suggest the government establish of a research institute to combat the origins and distribution of fake news in Canada.

 

“Fake news,” of course, being all the lies reported by corporate media that have been exposed in a matter of minutes. Just this past week, the state news agency, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, was perpetuating the lie that Donald Trump’s inauguration was lightly-attended. They juxtaposed a picture taken from Barack Hussein Obama’s 2009 inauguration with one taken hours earlier before Donald Trump’s swearing-in.

 

And just a reminder, the fake news providers (i.e. the corporations that occupy our public airwaves, our cable dials and newspaper vending boxes are the ones who are still telling us about global warming. The people who swore Donald Trump’s candidacy for the Republican nomination was only a joke. He was going nowhere. He would drop out before the first debate. Trump will never get past Iowa or New Hampshire. He will never allowed to be installed in Cleveland. Trump will never be elected president. Trump might as well surrender to Hillary. Hillary will clean Trump’s clock. The electoral college will never certify Trump’s election. Trump will be impeached.

The “fake news” narrative has been turned on its head and is now associated with the likes of CNN. The dominant liberal media in the U.S., and the traditional neo-con media in Canada spent the past year-and-a-half shilling for Hillary Clinton. And it blew up in their faces.

hillary-clinton-fawning-media

 

In addition to tax law, the Public Policy Forum calls on the government to reform non-profit and charity rules to allow philanthropy-supported media organizations to operate in Canada. That would bring the country in line with other markets, such as the United States and Germany, where non-profit investigative newsrooms like Propublica and CORRECT!V have thrived by producing independent work and partnering with other outlets.

 

Oh, you mean have George Soros extend his empire to Canada? Well, it’s so simple! Why didn’t you say so in the first place?

Hillary Clinton George Soros

With that change, and in order to address an increasing shortage in local news resources, the Public Policy Forum says the Canadian Press wire service — which is privately held by Torstar Corporation, The Globe and Mail and Gesca Limitée — should be given $8 to $10 million out of the new Journalism and Democracy fund to establish a second, non-profit news service to serve communities with coverage of courts, legislatures and city halls.

 

There was never any problem in providing local coverage in the past. People are more than willing to pay – or sit through ads – to find out what is going on down at their local city hall. There is nothing stopping television, radio stations and newspapers from dispatching reporters to local venues. Except they fired them all. 

It also makes several key recommendations for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. Among those, the Public Policy Forum says the CBC should cease selling digital ads, which would create a revenue gap of $25 million, and publish its news content under a Creative Commons licence, making it free for competing domestic news organizations to distribute.

 

That’s a great idea. Make the state news agency’s propaganda free for all to use. “Competing” newspapers wouldn’t even have to put on the pretense of providing their own product any longer. Just page after page of government press releases. It’s a shame nobody suggested another alternative for the state broadcaster / state news agency: dissolution. Fade to black. See the CKO radio network.

2017-01-26-16_14_21-cko-wikipedia

“There is little precedent for this kind of digital-age approach among public broadcasters,” reads the report. “CBC would be staking out a leadership position.”

 

“We’ve never had to compete to get our narrative out there. People are calling out our bullshit and we don’t have a clue what to do. Send us money!”

However, Minister of Canadian Heritage Mélanie Joly said, following the release of the report, that it is “too early to speculate on possible policy outcomes.”

“Our government understands the importance of a vibrant, local and reliable news media ecosystem as it is a pillar of democracy,” Joly added in a statement provided to the Financial Post. “We also acknowledge that news media is facing industry-wide challenges as they adapt to changing technology, demographics, audience preferences and competition for advertising dollars.”

She doesn’t have a clue, either. She’s a Liberal M.P. From Quebec. Her answer is simple. Tax. And spend. And tax some more. 

She said the Public Policy Forum’s report will be one among many resources the government reviews as it mulls ways to address upheaval in media economics. 

In the coming weeks, a panel of MPs on the Standing Committee on Heritage are expected to release their own recommendations on Canadian news and local communities after spending the lion’s share of 2016 hearing testimony from executives across the industry.

Golly, gee. One can only wonder what a “standing committee” of Liberal members of parliament is going to recommend. We, here at LettersToTheBeast, wait with baited breath. 

Speaking before the committee in November, Google voiced objection to the sort of levies proposed by the Public Policy Forum. “Our view is the way forward is through innovation,” Jason Kee, Google’s counsel for public policy, said. “Creating subsidies is not profitable in the long run. It doesn’t spur the innovation needed for sustainable models.”

If corporate media had its way, airlines would be paying subsidies to the railways. Automakers would pay the horse-and-carriage manufacturers. General Electric would be funding the kerosene lamp makers…

Joly and her department are also reviewing the submissions from a series of consultations held last year on Canadian content industries. These timelines mean it is unlikely any reforms or assistance for media companies will appear in next month’s federal budget.

Oh, come on now. Let’s be optimistic here! When Liberals want to find a way to spend money, they will find a way to spend money!

In a report last summer, professional services firm PwC said it expects internet advertising revenues in Canada to rise at a compound annual growth rate of 9.8 per cent through to 2020, reaching a total of  US$6.17 billion.

If a greater share of those revenues were redirected to domestic companies, that could help to stem the core obstacle for print media companies in Canada, which saw newspaper revenues fall 12.6 per cent to $1.4 billion in 2015, the most recent year for which annual figures have been published.

Of course, the print media companies could adapt their business model and put out a model that people will actually pay money to read: you know…like…the truth? No more analysis, no more “filtering.” No more israel-first nonsense. Just straight, hard-up facts, regardless of where they take you or what corporation or core constituency they offend? But no…the blacksmiths would still rather sit back and wait for their stipend from the airlines. 

Hey, wouldn’t it be funny if Google and Facebook retaliated by embargoing the recipients of its forced taxation from its new aggregators? 

It is unlikely the 2016 figures will look any better. Last year, the country’s two largest publicly traded newspaper companies — Postmedia Network Canada Corp. and Torstar Corp. — traded double digit losses to their print advertising revenues quarter after quarter.

You guys are totally screwed, aren’t you?

Both companies laid off hundreds of employees and the country’s largest privately owned newspaper, The Woodbridge Limited-held Globe and Mail, also laid off 40 staff in the fall citing poor performance of its print revenue streams.

Plenty more where that came from, presstitutes and whorespondents. Keep the bullshit flowing!

And just, one last friendly reminder, corporate bullshit media: For the past three decades – at least – you have not only propagated government lies that have gotten millions of people killed, but you have been promoting trade policies on behalf of those same governments that have gotten HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS of your own consumers thrown out of work. Those are hundreds of millions of people who can’t afford to buy the products that appear in your ink and on your airtime. The global warming hoax is one of the lesser things you need to be apologizing for.  Thanks. A lot.

CTV / AP Bullshit (more to come!): George Soros says Trump a ‘would-be dictator’ who will rattle markets

Analysis by LettersToTheBeast

 

Seriously? Some idiot at A.P. actually wrote this? And another idiot – an editor at Associated Press approved it? And then a mindless idiot at CTV (the Canadian Television Network), having seen all the in-house reporters laid off in recent years due to the decline in corporate media, pushed it on to the website? And nobody said, “You know, the masses are going to say this really is the pot calling the kettle black here…”

 

Okay, let’s get this train wreck moving…

2017-01-21-03_33_42-george-soros-says-trump-a-would-be-dictator-who-will-rattle-markets-_-ctv-news2017-01-21-03_34_08-george-soros-says-trump-a-would-be-dictator-who-will-rattle-markets-_-ctv-news

 

George Soros…the man who has made untold billions over the decades by “rattling markets” and impoverishing the average man, woman and child. The unnamed typist writes this tripe as if Soros is regarded as a nice, old businessman offering his sage advice. As if the entire planet doesn’t see him as a greedy, megalomaniac serpent. As if the entire planet doesn’t hate George’s guts and wants him dead.

 

A.P., C.N.N., and the corporate media presstitutes and whorespondents who carried this trash verbatim are no doubt hoping that Uncle George will send some of his largesse their way, not unlike Snopes, Media Matters, the Huffing and Puffington Post, among many others.

 

The best part of the article was no doubt in the second to last paragraph: “…he expects financial markets to ‘not do very well’ because of the uncertainty generated by the Trump administration.

 

Let’s check that, George…

2017-01-21-03_50_10-dow-jones-industrial-average-nytimes-com2017-01-21-03_50_34-dow-jones-industrial-average-nytimes-com2017-01-21-03_51_01-dow-jones-industrial-average-nytimes-com2017-01-21-03_51_53-dow-jones-industrial-average-nytimes-com

The banksters were indeed depressed as Trump’s inauguration approached. But lo and behold, as his speech continued, look what happened around 1pm? The Dow went up.

Jump You Fuckers

Donald Trump knows the markets are as rigged as the primaries, the debates, and the general election. But he got past all that corruption and fraud and has made George very, very angry. Those who know him say Soros hasn’t been this angry since he was a 14-year-old Hitler Jurgen.

evil_jew_Soros

Yes, the markets are rigged. And if the federal reserve knows what’s good for it, it’s going to start pulling back on the fraud and “rigging” the markets in favor of the people.

 

As for George Soros, it really is a shame the legends of gas chambers and mass death camps are just that…legends. Because if they were true, then George Soros himself should have turned one of those ovens to the highest setting, climbed in and closed the door behind him. And had his been the only death in one of those ovens, the world would be a better place today. And if Alex Soros and George’s other satanic progeny think we – the people of planet Earth – are going to let him step in and fill Daddy’s shoes once he takes his rightful place in hell, they’ve got another thing coming, ALEX.

Jewish Financial Terrorism

It’s a great time to be alive. We’re going to slay the new world order. Soros, you’re only going to be the first casualty. Rockefellers and Rothschilds, we’re coming for you!

CBC Bullshit: Vancouver slow off the mark in response to 3rd big snowfall

Curious how the state broadcaster would disable comments on a story as innocuous as the weather.

Then, you get to the good part and you see why…

2016-12-22-05_14_12-vancouver-slow-off-the-mark-in-response-to-3rd-big-snowfall-british-columbia

And…

 

2016-12-22-05_14_34-vancouver-slow-off-the-mark-in-response-to-3rd-big-snowfall-british-columbia

The state broadcaster disabled comments because those two paragraphs would rightly cause hundreds, even thousands of people, to question how the province of British Columbia (whose government has made billions of dollars off of the global warming hoax thanks to its carbon tax) and the government of Canada, which stands to benefit with carbon taxes of its own, presumes to tell us we need to “stop global warming” (by way of taxation of course) because the temperature will increase by two degrees in one hundred years. Yet they can’t even differentiate between a rain event and a snow event just a few hours ahead of time.

 

Unfortunately, none of the CBC stories regarding the snow and the cold in Vancouver included quotes from David Suzuki, Canada’s beloved environmental whacko and global warming nazi who has called for all those who disagree with him to be arrested.

 

Nice try, state broadcaster.

 

Fail!


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

CTV News Bullshit: Officials in Toronto and Ottawa investigate multiple racist incidents

Our friends at CTV (the Canadian Television Network) News are reporting on several mysterious “racist” incidents in which swastikas have shown up in the most unlikely of places: synagogues, a church, a mosque and the home of a jew.

 

According to CTV:

The Ottawa Police Hate Crimes Unit is involved and is still investigating the incidents. Police believe all five are related.

“There’s no question that (with) the type, the frequency and the condensed timeframe… that there’s a link there,” Ottawa police chief Charles Bordeleau told CTV Ottawa.

 

Yes. we’re sure the Ottawa Police Department is right on it.

Garnett Genuis, the Deputy Critic for International Human Rights and Religious Freedom, added: “Acts of hatred against one group of Canadians is an attack on us all.”

Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale said hate crimes must be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

“These events have occurred in Canada and they are unacceptable in Canada,” Goodale told CTV News.

 

Unfortunately, CTV does not reveal whether the Ottawa Police will include the possibility of a hoax or hoaxes in their investigation.

Because Warman was found to have posted the very hate messages he was complaining to the tribunal about, he did not get his customary piece of the action (i.e. the C$10,000) fine. But the Tribunal found Northern Alliance guilty anyway for posting Warman’s messages.

Straight from the ass’s mouth: Corporate “journalism” continues to tank with no bottom in sight

Our good friends at the Pew Center for Journalism and Media (Numbers, facts and trends shaping your world, they claim) paint a distressing picture of corporate media. Distressing, at least, if you work in corporate media. Actually, Messrs. Pew Center, it’s not our world you are shaping. Rather it is the reality you are trying to shape. And your reality came crashing down around the same time the internet became commercially widespread and allowed billions of people to fact-check your claims in a matter of seconds.

2016-09-16-05_16_19-newspapers_-fact-sheet-_-pew-research-center2016-09-16-05_18_18-newspapers_-fact-sheet-_-pew-research-center2016-09-16-05_19_16-newspapers_-fact-sheet-_-pew-research-center2016-09-16-05_20_11-newspapers_-fact-sheet-_-pew-research-center

According to Pew, corporate newspaper circulation saw single-digit crops in circulation continue throughout 2015 while advertising revenue plummeted. One-quarter of ad revenue now comes from “digital advertising” (i.e. those pop-up ads to take over your cell phone for 30 seconds, or the forced video ads that slow down websites like CBC, CNN, the Washington Post, etc until they are absolutely useless crap). And those revenues are down a modest two per cent. Over the past two decades, over 20,000 jobs have disappeared in the newspaper industry.

shockwave

 

Pew’s numbers do not differentiate between paid circulation (i.e. people actually paying for a newspaper) and newspapers being distributed for free in larger metropolitan areas (mainly universities and public transport stations).

 

Paywalls – once the great saviour of corporate media – are crumbling down. It’s one thing for us to know we are being lied to and being had. It’s quite another thing altogether to actually pay for that privilege.

 

People recall how corporate media (all media, not just print) lied about the babies and incubators hoax babies and incubators hoax which got us into the Gulf War of 1990. We certainly remember weapons of mass destruction and Saddam’s nukular bombs. In a 2006 New York Times / CBS News poll conducted by  Angus-Reid that has since been scrubbed from the internet, a whopping 16 per cent of Americans believed the “official story” of 9/11. Fifty-three per cent said government was  “hiding something” while 28 per cent said “mostly lying.”

 

2016-09-16-05_49_17-scientific-poll_-84-say-9_11-is-a-cover-up
In a 2006 Angus-Reid poll for CBS News and the New York Times, over one-half of respondents reported their conviction that the U.S. government was complicit on September 11, 2001.

Up until the past two decades, suggestions that the murder of John F. Kennedy was anything other than what was reported were dismissed, ridiculed and even condemned. Even  after the public release of the Zapruder film proved Dan Rather to be a liar. Now, only a fool believes the “magic bullet” theory.

 

The stuff that doesn’t make sense, the contradictions, the propaganda and outright lies have caught up to Corporate Media and they don’t have a clue what to do about it. Nobody owns newspapers to make money. Corporations and billionaires own newspapers to try and shape public opinion to suit their own needs (see Jeff Bezos, Sheldon Adelson and Warren Buffet). Don’t forget George Soros hiding in the background.  Watching politicians and their corporate media allies squirm when questioned about how the “Earth can be warming” (as if that is a bad thing) even after record cold winter weather is like watching a Sunday school teacher try to explain away how the Earth is 5,000 years old when children know dinosaurs lived at least 150-million years ago.

To this day, even with the overwhelming evidence to the contrary, Big Media continues to push the global warming hoax. It shamelessly covers up israeli war crimes in the middle east and around the world. And those israeli crimes it can’t cover up, it justifies and enables. The corporate media has spent the past year-and-a-half ridiculing and dismissing Donald Trump’s presidential candidacy. First in the Republican primaries, and now as the Republican candidate. Corporate Media assured it’s readers Trump’s campaign was a joke and a distraction. He was never supposed to get as far as he has now.

 

At the same time, big media has been the protector of Hillary Clinton.

hillary-clinton-fawning-media
Assembled corporate media on Hillary’s press plane resemble 14-year-old girls at a Justin Beaver concert.

Corporate Media tried to stamp out any suggestion that there was criminality with regards to Mrs. Clinton’s private e-mail server. They continue to run interference as the next logical question emerges: Was Hillary using the Clinton Foundation as a pay-for-play front for the State Department? And even worse, was her inexcusably lax security on her home servers the means for conducting an espionage operation?

 

Corporate Media’s inexcusable conduct continues to this day regarding any suggestion that Mrs. Clinton might be ill. Even as she was carried limp by secret service agents into her van, Corporate Media assured their readers and viewers everything was just fine. Not unlike their Soviet Bremya or Pravda counterparts from three decades ago.

 

As long as readers’ and viewers’ legitimate questions about the world around us continues to be dismissed as “conspiracy theories” Corporate Media will continue circling down the toilet until the inevitable. As long as Corporate Media continues to respond to our questions and our challenges with insults, nothing will change.

 

On the other hand, if Corporate Media were to apologize, own up to or at the very least express regret for for its past conduct and start telling us the truth and asking real questions on our behalf, we would gladly pay for those paywalls, newspapers would sell so many papers there would be a shortage of trees, and advertising rate cards on the evening network newscasts would be competitive with the Super Bowl. There would be a waiting list for would-be advertisers on those newspaper websites. Assuming their technical garbage was corrected, of course.

New York Times “correction” from July 17, 1969

Unfortunately, big media shows no signs of apologizing for the millions of people it has gotten killed since The Gulf of Tonkin, Babies and Incubators and Saddam’s Nukular Bombs. It is not about to expose the global warming hoax any time soon. Hillary could have a state funeral in the District of Criminals and Corporate Media would still tell us she’s just fine. The BBC has so far refused to tell us how they knew World Trade Center Building Seven had collapsed, half-an-hour before it did indeed collapse, while the building stood erect and intact live outside the window of Jane Standley’s make-shift studio.

On September 10, 2001, Donald Rumsfeld announced the Pentagon had, ahem, misplaced over $2-trillion dollars. Corporate Media never said another word (save for their pet “fact-checking” sites like Snopes. Media Matters and other George Soros fronts debunking the whole thing).

Why did all those “mass-shootings” take place in “gun-free zones?” Was Sandy Hook a real, operating school? Why do all those same people show up at different events (i.e. Mason Wells)? Is there something to the “crisis actors?” Where is the surveillance video from The Pulse? Why did NORAD stand down on 9/11? Why was Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab walked around security at Schiphol Airport (one of the most secure in the world)?  What happened to Libya’s 99-tons of gold after its glorious “liberation?” Why was John McCain in Syria and why did he meet with Abu-Bakr al-Baghdadi? And is Mr. al-Baghdadi really Simon Eliot? And how has al-Baghdadi managed to come back to life so many times? What is Rita Katz’s role in the “beheading movies” she “discovers” on “Muslim websites?” What role does the federal reserve play in propping up the stock market every afternoon? Where does that “money” come from? Where is the gold? How much does israel (including its government, its agents and its citizens worldwide) influence our public institutions including our government, universities and, yes, media?

 

These are a few very basic questions real people have. An until Corporate Media starts addressing those questions on our behalf, rather than belittling, insulting and marginalizing us, its decline and irrelevance will continue.

pinochio

After all, Jeff, Sheldon, Warren and the rest of the billionaires only have so much money to go around. It’s got to run out some time. Even George Soros will not allow himself and his progeny to be impoverished to keep funding these public relations scams.

liar-liar

 

Now be careful, Corporate Media. Be very, very careful. Because we are at the point where more people than you feel comfortable admitting are starting to go all the way back to the 1930s and 1940s and ask questions about the various historical narratives back then, too.

(I can’t believe I’m saying this) The RCMP gets it right: A cop who crosses the line is no longer an “officer”

Recently, a Vancouver-area citizens group known as “Creep Catchers,” whose aim is to snare child predators, reeled in a Royal Canadian Mounted Police employee. The RCMP arrested the worker, though they won’t tell us his name. Curiously, the Vancouver Sun told us what his name is not, however. The police worker’s name is not Constable Dan Johnson.

In a press conference held on September 9, Surrey RCMP acting commanding officer Brenda Butterworth-Carr said,”Last night as the investigation progressed, the suspected officer was arrested and taken into custody where he remains today…If these allegations are substantiated, we will be taking immediate steps to separate ourselves from this individual.”

“These allegations are egregious and not in keeping with what we expect from our employees.”

Damn straight, Mrs. Butterworth. He’s not an “officer” any longer. He’s an employee of a police department. For now. Unfortunately, even as Mrs. Butterworth switched over to the use of “individual” and “employee” after acknowledging the “officer’s” arrest, Corporate Media continued referring to the anonymous federal civil servant as an “officer.”

mrs-butterworths-syrup-coupon

While stating the fed was suspended, media reports failed to clarify whether that was with or without pay. This being Canada, it is probably fair to say the pervert-in-red is on paid vacation. Canadian police workers who go rogue – and get caught – tend to draw out their vacation for years.  It took four years to fire Monty Robinson, the fed who ordered the murder of stapler-wielding Robert Dziekansky at the Vancouver Aiport. And Robinson was only fired  after mowing down Orion Hutchinson in a drunken stupor. The local police declined to charge Robinson with drunk driving. Delta Police threw the public a bone and charged him with obstructing justice. Robinson was fined C$1,000 and ordered to write Mr. Hutchinson’s survivors a letter saying he was sorry (again, this is Canada we’re talking about).

 

2016-09-14-03_08_39
Vancouver Sun, July 22, 2012. RCMP Police Officer of the Year Monty Robinson was fined C$1,000 for mowing down Orion Hutchinson with his Jeep in a drunken stupor. He was also sentenced to write an essay about how bad he feels. 

 

In a syrupy soliloquy that had the press conference attendees blowing their noses with pancakes, Mrs. Butteworth scorned Creep Catchers for their “vigilantism” and for naming the wrong police department employee (which, to reiterate, is not Dan Johnson). Mrs. Butterworth laid it on thick as she spoke of the stress caused to Dan and his family.

 

Mrs. Butterworth is absolutely right. Can’t go around naming the wrong people. That could cause them undue stress and make them feel bad.

With regard to the charge of “vigilantism,” it’s simple. If you want something done right, you do it yourself. The Mounties were probably too busy making criminals out of people (see John Nuttall / Amanda Korody) who were too stupid to be criminals, so somebody had to step in and fill the void left by competent law enforcement. Enter, Creep Catchers.

On a sweeter note, LettersToTheBeast wishes Missus Butterworth all the best in her new position as the de-facto spokesthingy for the RCMP in metropolitan Vancouver. We certainly hope she has better career success than former spokesman Tim Shields…

…And we certainly wish her better than Pierre Lemaitre, who was spokesman for the RCMP after the Dziekanski murder. Pierre lied about the circumstances surrounding Robert Dziekansi death. He didn’t know it at the time. And when he found out, he was mad. He demanded his superiors correct the information. They refused.

Pierre Lemaitre was suicided on July 29, 2013. He was hanged in his Abbotsford home. He was 55 years old.

 

Pierre LeMaitre was a good cop. Watch your back, Mrs. Butterworth. The RCMP doesn’t tolerate good cops. Of course, you’ve been there long enough to know that, haven’t you?

 

LettersToTheBeast reminds our regular readers: Paul Gross, Leslie Nielsen and Gordon Pinsent were never actually, really, Mounties.

Shocking news:Canadian liberal darling Wendy Cukier is a bi….g meanie.

LettersToTheBeast has learned some sad, sad news about the queen of Canada’s loony left, Wendy “Kook” Cukier (okay, okay, she pronounces it “sook-yay”),

 

Cukier made her career by being in the same building, the ecole-polytechnique (The Polytechnical School) in Montreal where Marc Lepine went on a shooting rampage, wounding 28 and killing 14. Before killing himself, Lepine, 25, said he was hunting feminists. Sadly, this event happened in a) Canada and b)a school. Thus nobody was carrying and Lepine was able to carry out his killing spree unimpeded. And since that time, Cukier has made it her mission that no Canadian – woman or man – will ever have the right to self-defense recognized.

DefenseFreeZone Gun Free Zone
PatriotRising.com

 

The ecole-polytechnique massacre happened on December 6, 1989. In 1989, a series of rapes in suburban Toronto perpetrated by a man known then only as “the Scarborough Rapist” had continued unsolved for two years. They would continue for another year before Paul Bernardo and his wife Karla Homolka would go on to kill three girls, including Homolka’s own sister, Tammy (whom Karla had offered to Paul as a “present”). Bernardo and Homolka were from Cukier’s home town, St. Catharines, Ontario. Cukier and her ilk become irrationally irate at the suggestion that had just one of those women who were raped by Bernardo been carrying, Tammy Homolka, Leslie Mahaffy and Kristen French (the girls killed by Bernado and Homolka) would be alive today. To say nothing of the misery endured by all of Bernardo’s rape victims in Toronto.

Woman Carrying Handgun
Had just one of Paul Bernardo’s would-be victims had a gun during his Scarborough Rapist days, Kristen French, Leslie Mahaffy and Tammy Homolka would be alive today. In Marc Lepine’s case, one of those girls at ecole-polytechnique could have put a hole in his head and saved over a dozen lives. That’s not what gun-grabbers like Wendy Cukier want to hear. 

 

Wendy Cukier’s dangerous fallacy that women can’t defend themselves

2016-09-03 04_27_16-Wendy Cukier's dangerous fallacy that women can’t defend themselves _ Christophe

Since  1989, Canada’s militant feminist movement has prospered with Marc Lepine as its favoured fund-raising tool. Similary, Marc Lepine also managed to put Cukier’s career on the fast track. She became a professor at Toronto’s Ryerson Institute (now Ryerson University), colloquially known  as Rye High. Currently Ryerson’s vice-president of research and innovation, Dr. Wendy Cukier, Phd, had a chance to move on to bigger and better things back at St. Catharines’ Brock Univeristy. Cukier accepted an appointment to be Brock’s president. She accepted the offer in December, 2015 and the position would have started September 1, 2016.

2016-09-03 04_34_03-École Polytechnique massacre - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

According to Ryerson, Mrs. Cukier has an MA (social and cultural history), MBA (marketing and information systems), PhD (“management science”), two honourary doctorates of law, and a master of science. Apparently, she is the author of 200 papers on research and technological innovation. Yet the woman has never held a real job in her entire life. Her life’s work has been to dine off of Marc Lepine, present herself as a victim of the “Montreal Massacre” even though Lepine never even entered the classroom she was cowering in, and made it her business to make sure no Canadian woman is ever able to defend herself. And for that life experience, students go into debt tens of thousands of dollars and their parents sacrifice everything.

 

Curiously, Ryerson’s bio of Cukier makes no mention of exactly what degree she ended up getting from ecole-polytechnique. She did go to an engineering school, so one would have thought she at least started out in life wanting to do something useful for society.

 

Regrettably, news of Cukier’s abrasive personality made its way down to St. Catharines from Toronto. The Toronto Globe and Mail reports that Cukier’s department “was a ‘toxic work environment’ where lower-level employees were fearful for their jobs.” Subordinates complained of having to work overtime and weekend without pay.

 

One complainant e-mailed, “When you complete … tasks and assignments, you are critiqued and your work is often torn apart…No one should ever have to experience open ridicule in front of colleagues, fear and intimidation, and trickle down bullying. Far too many employees over the years have complained to HR and the union, yet little has been done to assist employees in this department…No one should ever have to experience open ridicule in front of colleagues, fear and intimidation, and trickle down bullying. Far too many employees over the years have complained to HR and the union, yet little has been done to assist employees in this department.”

 

While not wishing to defend Canada’s gun-grabber extraordinaire, LettersToTheBeast would respectfully welcome this anonymous complainant to the real world.

Ryerson 3Ryerson 4 Wendy Cukier

The Globe and Mail sought comment from Ryerson and Cukier but was apparently unsuccessful. An uncharacteristic stance from a woman who has been running towards every microphone and camera in sight for the past 25 years.

 

According to another, more (typically) fawning Globe and Mail article from October 19, 2010:

 

Describing her outlook on Canadian technological innovation as “glass half-full, glass half-empty”, Prof. Cukier fears that this country may have lost some of its edge. Like gun control or gender equality, she says, innovation is a continuous process that calls for integrated strategies. “If you’re not continually moving forward, you’re going to be surpassed by other nations which are.”

 

The reason other countries (particularly China, Japan, South Korea and now even India) are cleaning our clocks is they are not wasting their students’ time and money dealing with nonsense like “diversity,” bathrooms for confused folk, safe spaces and the like. Their universities don’t put up with that crap. In fact, even their elementary schools focus on educating their pupils for the real world. If an elementary school headmaster – to say nothing of a dean of students 0 dared distract his students with crap like gender-neutral bathrooms, same sex relationships and “safe spaces,” one can be assured the parents would break his legs with their baseball bats (these are gun-free countries, after all).

Nobody said Cukier is an idiot and there is some good news. Wendy must have been taking notes when Steven Salaita‘s job offer as a professor at University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign was withdrawn after Salaita had resigned his position of Virginia Tech and after it had come to light that he had said some mean things about our lords and masters in tel aviv, thus leaving Mr. Salaita unemployed. Wendy is currently on sabbatical from Rye High and will be returning in September, 2017 as a “faculty member” in the Ted Rogers School of Business.

Ryerson 2

It is unclear how Mrs.Cukier is managing to meet her obligations for the next year. Rumours that Cukier would be heading up Ryerson’s Safe Space program upon her return were unsubstantiated.

CTV / A.P. Bullshit: Pressure building to condemn Syria over chemical weapons

Analysis by LettersToTheBeast

Our friends at CTV (the Canadian Television Network), by way of the Associated Press are back on the Assad-gassed-his-own-people train again. Oh, boy. This is getting very tiresome. And, frankly, insulting. All right. Deep breath. Let’s take this apart one-by-one. And use it as a template for the carbon-copy Bullshit Corporate Media stories (again, “story” being the operative word here). We shouldn’t be mad at CTV as much as the author of this nonsense, Associated Press. Having seen its viewership plummet since the internet made it possible to fact check its claim in a matter of seconds, CTV has laid off its newsroom staff less than skeleton levels. That means they will pick up any story that fills space on its website or time in its newscast. Not unlike how small town weekly rags will be filled with wedding announcements and press releases from politicians and local businesses masquerading as news.

 

Okay, here goes…

Pressure building to condemn Syria over chemical weapons

Michael Astor, The Associated Press
Published Tuesday, August 30, 2016 3:25PM EDT

 

Pressure is building for the United Nations to condemn Syria over the use of chemical weapons as the Security Council prepares to discuss a report by weapons inspectors that found the Syrian government deployed chemical weapons on at least two occasions and is suspected of deploying them in at least three other instances.

 

“Pressure?” Pressure from whom? “Suspected?” “At least?” Seriously?

Human Rights Watch on Tuesday called on the Security Council to impose sanctions on the Syrian government over the chemical weapons’ use and to refer the case to the International Criminal Court. The report also found that the Islamic State group, which is already under U.N. sanctions, was behind at least one chemical attack.

jewish financier George Soros got his start as a war criminal in World War II-era Hungary. And he has never looked back. His big prize is the Third World War. 

Human Rights Watch. Ohhh, George Soros. Well, why didn’t you just say so in the first place?  And I see we’re back to using “The Islamic State” again. I’m all for bringing them to the International Criminal Court. But somehow, I don’t think John McCain, the Arizona senator who had numerous selfies taken with “ISIS” types (including Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi / Simon Eliot) is going to go quietly. Neither is former Canadian foreign minister and current member of parliament Robert “Rob” Nicholson (CON-Niagara Falls). Nicholson, of course, was foreign minister when Mohammed al-Rashad, a Canadian Security Intelligence agent, was arrested in Turkey while trying to smuggle three teen British girls into Syria to fight for this ISIS outfit.

“We think ISIS – that outfit we air-dropped the food and guns and ammo and sent the Toyota pick ip trucks to – did one attack. Maybe. But we’re really, really sure Assad did the rest. Trust us.”

“This has been a political minefield for five and a half years but we have something different, we have a U.N.-backed mechanism with a report,” said Louis Charbonneau, U.N. director at Human Rights Watch. “We have it in black and white that the Syrian Government and ISIS are responsible for using chemical weapons, it’s a crime and the Security Council has many tools it can use, so we expect them to use them all.”
“We have it in black and white…” Funny you should use those words, Louise. Remember those black and white satellite photos that Colin Powell represented as “clear and convincing” proof of Saddam’s weapons of mass destruction? And isn’t that a great title Louise has? “U.N. Director?” The woman has absolutely nothing to do with the United Nations. She used to, but not any longer. But she gives herself the title “U.N. Director” as if associating herself (once gain) with the United Nations gives her some credibility. And of course, the A.P.’s typist (with the willing consent of CTV’s editors) lap it up. Orwelling newspeak and doublespeak.

Hint: Satellite photos don’t come in black and white. They come in colour. Oh, and, just a reminder, that “decontamination vehicle” turned out to be one of these things…

The 95-page report compiled by an international team of inspectors and released last week, found that the Syrian government and Islamic State militants carried out chemical attacks in 2014 and 2015 and blamed the government for using chlorine gas in two attacks and Islamic State fighters for using mustard gas in one attack.

 

No kidding. Any luck on tracking down who was responsible for the chemical weapons attack which took place in Waco, Texas on April 19, 1993? “They” used  o-chlorobenzylidene malononitrile dissolved in methelyine chloride. And “international inspectors…” You don’t say…

The inspectors investigated nine cases in seven towns and determined responsibility in three cases. They said three more attacks pointed toward government involvement but weren’t conclusive, and described three others as inconclusive.

“described three others as inconclusive.” What, you couldn’t even make up a convincing lie for those ones?

When the report was released, U.S. Ambassador Samantha Power said the inspectors’ findings mirrored “numerous other confirmed cases of chemical weapons use across Syria, and countless other allegations of such use, including as recently as several weeks ago.”

 

Ah, yes. Our old friend Samantha Powers. Where Sam goes, the Third World War follows.

Seriously, honey. Ya gotta lay off the smack, okay? This is for your own good. And Barry, too. Forget about drug testing the truck drivers and the bus drivers. Hell, start making the politicians and bureaucrats piss in a jar before they take office.

Inspectors said that between December 2015 and August 2016 they received more than 130 new allegations from U.N. member states of the use of chemical weapons or toxic chemicals as weapons in Syria. They said the attacks involved sarin, mustard gas, VX nerve gas, chlorine, and 61 other toxic chemicals.

 

In September 2013, Syria accepted a Russian proposal to relinquish its chemical weapons stockpile and join the Chemical Weapons Convention. That averted a U.S. military strike in response to an alleged chemical weapons attack that killed hundreds in the Damascus suburb of Ghouta.

 

No, what averted a U.S. military strike was China’s threat (with prodding from Russia) to cut off Uncle Sucker’s credit card if they crossed that line in the sand. China and Russia are happy to see the U.S. government once again get mired down in an endless war against brown people. But all out invasion of Syria and Iran are off the table.

“One thing that we have here is that there is a treaty. Syria is a party to this treaty, they violated it. This is clear. The report shows that you can’t just let them walk away violating the treaty without there being some kind of consequences, otherwise what value is the treaty?” Charbonneau said.

 

How many countries has Syria attacked, invaded or otherwise launched hostilities against in the past, oh, say 30 years?

Still, it was unclear if Russia, Syria’s close ally with the power to veto Security Council resolutions, would support sanctions.

Is the Space Pope reptilian?

Last week, Russia’s U.N. Ambassador Vitaly Churkin said the findings needed to be studied by experts and he sidestepped questions about the team’s conclusion that the Syrian government used chlorine gas in two attacks, adding that the report is “very technical,” “quite complicated” and needs study.

 

Does anybody see the tragedy here? Even if what Associated Press, CTV and the rest of the Bullshit Corporate Media were one hundred per cent factual and true, people will always go back to Saddam’s Nukular Bombs and Weapons of Mass Destruction. And since it was the United States government (with help from israel) that told us those lies, not Russia and not China, the world (even the American people themselves) are deferring to Russia and China.

But since the Corporate Media does continue to tell us tales about fake terrorists, global warming, our ever-fragile economic recovery while covering up  The Clintons’ criminal past AND present, Bill’s drug use, Hillary’s fried brain and many other things, what they are reporting about Syria and the War of Terror are not true. They are demonstrably false. And the George Soros / New World Order types don’t have a clue what the hell to do about it.

 

And just a friendly reminder: When Bullshit Corporate Media tells us about the “war against ISIS (or whatever alternate name they use, ISIL, IS, Daesh, etc) remember it was Turkey, acting for NATO and the U.S. government who shot down a Russian bomber just as it had completed a bombing mission against real ISIS targets. Russia had just destroyed the ISIS infrastructure that made it possible for Bilal Erdogan, the Turkish president’s son, to continue traficking in stolen Syrian oil. Bilal Erdogan owns ship that carry that stolen oil.

Niagara Falls Review: Rat Infestation in Niagara Falls

http://www.niagarafallsreview.ca/2016/08/29/rat-infestation-in-niagara-falls

Rat
Niagara Falls Mayor Jim Diodati…was quoted in this Review article

The city is trying to get on top of an ongoing rat problem in the community.

“We’re looking at each case that we have. We’re getting public health involved as far as distributing literature,” said city clerk Dean Iorfida.

“We’re baiting sewers. If there is a property nearby that may be suspect, we are inspecting those.”

Iorfida said the city has been doing a lot of research about the issue this summer, which is not necessarily the fault of anybody.

“(It was a) warmer winter, which meant that the rats were able to populate — they were able to breed, so there’s more of them,” he said. “It’s not necessarily your neighbour down the street causing the rats.”

Mayor Jim Diodati said it’s a region-wide issue, with a seemingly different animal problem each year.

“One year it might be a certain kind of moth, and right now it’s rats. It’s around the region, it’s not unique to us.”

Iorfida said staff hope to come back with a protocol this fall.

“What we’ve wanted to do is try to engage experts — to find the root problem as far as why they’re there,” he said.

Iorfida said sometimes rats are present in an area because their habitat was disrupted by construction, causing rats to move to a different location.

Yeah, that’s the problem with rats. No matter how hard we try, they just keep moving on and we can’t quite exterminate them.
