Yesterday, Saltwire, the company that owns most newspapers in Atlantic Canada, simply shut 20 of them down, laying off 250 staff.
I get it — most of their advertisers have cancelled.
Saltwire took millions of dollars from Justin Trudeau in bail-outs, but they still couldn’t make it.
So what’s going to happen to us at Rebel News — one of the few media companies in Canada that is actually independent, and takes no government money?
TONIGHT I'm going to share with you my plan for keeping Rebel News alive, at a time when we're needed most:
Someone has to keep the Trudeau Liberals from turning the coronavirus crisis into an opportunity to raise taxes and crack down harder on our civil liberties.
We've been doing journalism no one else has, like going to Roxham Road to show you whether or not that illegal border crossing had finally been shut down.
We’ve gone to the airports, and asked people flying in from China and other countries what sort of screening they had — and we reported the truth:
That they were not screened at all, and in fact, many people from other countries were shocked at how little was being done.
Trudeau was lying when he said there was “enhanced screening”. There still isn’t.
We plan to keep doing real journalism, if with some changes in how we report.
However, we can only do this with your help!

FINALLY: Your messages to me.
