Having Trudeau teach you how to think is not comforting.
We did not see a detailed and credible plan, we saw a lot of buzzwords, a lot of platitudes that should leave Canadians concerned in regards to the safeguarding of the electoral process in 2019," she said.
I don’t see FG being factually incorrect anywhere. Her OP makes the reasonable point that Govt regulation of SM content is unlikely to be entirely benign.
FG was being dishonest by showing Trudeau's picture throughout the video and implying he and the Liberal party were going to run the watchdog agency. It is completely run by non political bureaucrats.
Your quote of the Conservative spokeswoman isn't that she is worried that the Liberals would abuse the power but that she didn't think the plan laid out was specific enough and was concerned it may not be effective.
Cullen is an NDP member, and the NDP member has never formed a federal government which is a good thing because they are far left SJW types. His bitch is that the NDP never hired any bureaucrats and that the panel are career bureaucrats that have been hired by Conservative and Liberal governments.
Goldy's point is not reasonable. If you look at the facts about how the panel will operate their task is not to regulate social media as much as to identify foreign hackers, troll farms and using bots to manipulate the info out there. Her attempt to try and cast this as a deep state/ Trudeau operation to silence Canadians is just dishonest bullshit propaganda.
It seems to me that you watch a FG video and swallow it hook line and sinker. When shown evidence that she is inaccurate or dishonest you ignore that and look hard for pro Goldy points or even stretch points that don't back her up to try and fit her propaganda. I hope when you continue to upgrade your history degree you use better research methods then watching crackpot youtubers and basically swallow all of the bullshit they spew that fits your preconceived notions or what you want to believe.
Thank you for the advice. My ability to break down source material into facts, legitimate exposition and partisan narrative is just fine.
Goldy provides a mixture of all this and more. Which makes it very interesting.
MSM: “The government has formed a task force and selected 5 bureaucrats ...”
FG: Questions lack of collusion indictments from M and doesn’t want moral panic to come to Canada
FG: Highlights extent domestic monetary interference in media as counterpoise
FG: Mocks the “critical election incident Public Proticol” which is a press conference
FG: Draws attention to the govt asking SM to be even more controlling and censorious
FG: Correctly links JT pic to the govt $7m for reprogramming workshops and mocks them as undefined and possibly Orwellian
FG: Questions the management of clear conflict of interest - a govt initiative controlling information during an election year
FG: Raises the legitimate point that “fake news” is an undefined concept now owned by a govt panel
FG: Points out that “foreign interference” is an undefined and nebulous concept
FG: Questions the govt choice of aligning with MSM to police alt media during a period of media democratisation
FG: Suggests that democratised media should also be cover by the Bill of Rights “free press”
FG: Suggests that much fake news is covered by existing libel laws
FG: Provides a POV (which is debatable) that JT Govt is clamping down on altmedia. Based on her exp. I get her feelz here.
All in all an array of interesting and topical points. Worthy of more examination than a 7min video is capable of.
I suspect you simply can’t stand her or anything that she says. Probably her smirk.
