“There is out there a deliberate undermining of the mainstream media,” Trudeau said, answering a question towards the end of the interview. “There are the conspiracy theorists, there are the social media drivers who are trying to do everything they can to keep people in their little filter bubbles, to prevent people from actually agreeing on a common set of facts, the way CBC and CTV – when they were our only sources of news – used to project across the country, at least a common understanding of things.”

quote:

There are massive changes that need to happen in our media landscape, and [the] government can try and create conditions and incentives for it to happen,” he told Jespersen on Wednesday.

quote:

Trudeau’s comments on the podcast also echoed those made by former US President Barack Obama in a May 2023 interview to CBS. Obama named “a divided media” as one of the things he was worried about, noting that the US once had “three TV stations ... and people were getting a similar sense of what is true and what isn’t, what was real and what was not.” “How do we return to that common conversation? How can we have a common set of facts?” the 44th US president wondered at the time.

You mean the lies you would force people to believe even if everyone knows its a lie? Like if a man can become a woman?


This won't workout like he thinks.

Trudeau and 0bama (and Goebbels) are right.

No sense in having a media that presents two sides. Afterall, it only "saves our Democracy" if it helps control 100% of the narrative, 100% of the time.

That reads like something from the Babylon Bee.

Why is it Trudeau’s job to defend the MSM?

When did leftists start believing that marching lockstep is a desirable state? I thought being open minded was the leftist mantra.

Going back to their roots.

Censorship, control of information, and propaganda are bedrock values of leftism and today’s Democrats are fully embracing them.

Trudeau single-handedly ruined Canada and the reputation of Canadians. Yet, he was elected for the second time.

Another reason why Democrats continue to trample Republicans. Every single Democrat politician and voter would put you in an extermination camp tonight if they could. Every last one of them, and that includes your relatives.

People who vote Democrat want to destroy our way of life, eliminate our purchasing power, and erase our values and beliefs from society forever.

I want nothing but the absolute worst for Democrat politicians and voters.

As I've mentioned before, the GOP thinks there are rules, but there aren't any. The Dems are ruthless power-mongers and will stoop to anything to win an election. We've not woken up that their fear,doubt and vilifying tactics should be repaid in kind.

He seems unhappy, maybe depressed.

Has he considered euthanizing himself? Canada's health care system offers this option. He should consider it.

I really don't understand how the frick this guy is PM of Canada. He's one of the most unlikeable politicians in my lifetime.

Yes. They've done it to themselves, thus the rise in independent media.

Again yes. That's exactly what mainstream media does.

In Trudeau’s case, he literally trampled them.

With horses.

Then he took all their money.
