The state broadcaster’s most recent disagreement with the truth came in the form of a forced correction to a story that nearly flipped the Alberta election in favour of the NDP. It was misinformation that took six months to acknowledge.
CBC published a story alleging Alberta Premier Daniel Smith’s office had put direct pressure in the form of email communications on the prosecutorial service dealing with COVID-19 infractions still before the courts.
It would be a catastrophic example of political meddling in the justice system, that is, if it were true.
It was not.
1. For six months, Trudeau’s CBC lied about Danielle Smith. There is simply no other explanation, other than it was Trudeau interfering in Alberta’s provincial election.
After an investigation by a retired judge, Marguerite Trussler, that saw an examination of hundreds of thousands of documents and extensive interviews with all parties, no direct communications were found to have existed.
I have just read every journalists’ tweets about the Ethics Commissioner’s report on Danielle Smith today. Not one mentions that the commissioner found ZERO evidence that Smith or her staff emailed a prosecutor — a lie that the CBC continues to publish. https://t.co/ewJyIKDTY3pic.twitter.com/FSYlAz0I88
The allegations were fake; however, the impact on the Alberta election was very real. It was a fabricated scandal which called into question the premier’s ethics in the middle of a hotly contested election campaign.
Legacy media has “created a market for alternative voices because they’ve been so unbalanced,” says Danielle Smith.
Premier Smith adds that she worries Trudeau’s regulations will hurt independent outlets.
This isn’t the first time CBC has fabricated allegations about opponents of Justin Trudeau’s radical progressive agenda.
CBC was forced to correct at least two separate stories alleging foreign funding to last year’s anti-mandate Freedom Convoy, laying the groundwork for the government to accuse the peaceful demonstrators of undermining Canadian democracy.
The concept of citizen journalism (also known as “public“, “participatory“, “democratic“ or “street” journalism is based upon public citizens “playing an active role in the process of collecting, reporting, analyzing, and disseminating news and information.” Similarly, Courtney C. Radsch defines citizen journalism “as an alternative and activist form of newsgathering and reporting that functions outside mainstream media institutions, often as a response to shortcomings in the professional journalistic field, that uses similar journalistic practices but is driven by different objectives and ideals and relies on alternative sources of legitimacy than traditional or mainstream journalism”. Jay Rosen proposes a simpler definition: “When the people formerly known as the audience employ the press tools they have in their possession to inform one another.”
