In case you've missed it, Rebel News is in Davos, Switzerland, covering the annual gathering of politicians, oligarchs, mainstream media outlets and some of the world's most powerful businesses.

On last night's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, Ezra gave viewers a welcome to the exclusive ski resort town, located high in the Swiss Alps. This is the site where every year, a large collection of the most influential people assemble for a week, discussing ideas and plotting the next steps for governments and businesses alike.

The location is not an easy place to get to. It's an exclusive event, and the exorbitant costs of accommodation keeping many would-be critics away. 

But as Ezra Levant explains, Rebel News needs to be here:

It's difficult to get here, which I think lets the folks who are here let their hair down.

The oligarchs, the billionaires, the 'masters of the universe' — They feel like they're amongst friends, they feel like they're far away from Washington D.C. or Ottawa or London where there's snooping media. 

The only media allowed in are on the payroll, essentially. So when you approach them on the street, maybe they're more chatty than they normally were. Or, certainly, they just don't have the large entourage of bodyguards.
