Media’s fake news view on war on ter­ror

NOW Magazine - - LETTER TO THE EDITOR -

At last, a media per­spec­tive about Omar Khadr and his abom­inable treat­ment by our past gov­ern­ments. The truth about this case has been clearly, con­cisely and ac­cu­rately laid out for all who know, want to know or care; the op­pos­ing spin has been and still is just ide­o­log­i­cal rant.

Nev­er­the­less, it seems, fake news per­spec­tives get the media fo­cus when flogged by polls couched in phras­ing to put the sim­plest and most vac­u­ous spins on a sub­ject.

When do we learn to dis­tin­guish valid po­lit­i­cal lead­er­ship from agenda fluff ?
