On last night's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, guest host Sheila Gunn Reid discussed the Trudeau Liberals' plot to censor dissenting journalists.
As Sheila explained, the federal government is now calling for the creation of a code of conduct directed at Canada's newsrooms. If successful, it will expand the CRTC's regulation of the internet — potentially sending the country down the dystopian rabbit hole of 1984.
"Newsrooms are struggling because Justin Trudeau tried to regulate social media companies to signal boost people he likes and to subsidize his friends. And in turn, Meta turned off link sharing which caused the newsrooms to struggle and be even more desperate. The Liberals created scarcity, now they've got the solution to the scarcity. All you have to do is do what they say," said Sheila.
The Liberals say that under the Online News Act currently in place, media organizations must adhere to CRTC guidance on ethics.
"The CRTC may regulate the following areas: Creation of a code of conduct (and) a complaint process pertaining to how groups of eligible news businesses are to be structured and their conduct under the Act," reported Blacklock's Reporter.
Speaking about Bill C-18, Sheila said, "Now if these failing media companies want some of that sweet Google money to make up for the traffic and ad revenue shortfall caused by Justin Trudeau's shakedown, the news companies need to comply with the government code of conduct for journalists."
