A cynical move
Regarding the federal government pledging nearly $600 million to help news organizations, what a cynical move by the Liberals, ensuring favourable coverage for themselves in the guise of supporting a failing and soon to be obsolete industry.
There’s no doubt only those newspapers that publish articles supportive of Liberal policies and critical of the other parties will qualify for the subsidy. Anyone who believes all newspapers will be treated equally under this program and the Liberals introduced this program solely to help the beleaguered newspaper industry’s deluding themselves. This blatant attempt to control the free press smacks of socialism at its very worst. Say goodbye to a free and independent news media in Canada.
