Press is taking pages from its hateful “Tea Party” coverage playbook.
This weekend, I mentioned that the elite media (both in Canada and the United States) failed to cover the attack on Freedom Convoy participants in Winnipeg.
Now, the media is shamefully portraying protests that specifically challenge ineffective pandemic policies as “anti-government demonstrations.”
For example, here is how The New York Times reported the increasingly popular Canadian grassroots movement.
Government officials are still bitterly clinging to vaccine mandates, despite the fact that the data now clearly show vaccines neither stop people from contracting covid or transmitting it.
Canadian Public Safety Minister Marco Mendicino said on Sunday that the government would not back down on the issue.
“We put the question of vaccines and vaccine mandates on the ballot … in the (2021) election and we’re simply carrying out the promise that we made with the support of the vast majority of Canadians,” he said on CBC television.
The #FreedomConvoy has now become the target of infiltators and hoaxes.
