I never noticed it before: there is a definite right-wing bias to the reporting from this media outlet. I never bought nor read anything from them, at least until the last general election, here in Canada.
MSN is the purveyor of news for all Microsoft users. The National Post gets a lot of articles featured there. But the slant is always toward the Conservative point-of-view.
So you can imagine how much noise NP made when Trudeau was caught brown-faced.
But no matter how vociferous the paper was about all the mistakes Trudeau made, the Canadian voters didn’t elect a Conservative government, much to its chagrin. So their fingers were pointed at Scheer for failing to deliver the coup de grace.
Scheer said he was staying on as leader of the Conservative Party of Canada. The National Post had a different agenda. So the negative campaign took off.
Finally, Andrew Scheer gave in. Now the campaign has moved on to his replacement.
In the meantime, there has been a crisis involving Iran’s downing of an airliner. So every time Trudeau spoke on behalf of Canadians everywhere, the National Post criticized him.
Are they the reasonable voice of Canadian Conservatives or are they the megaphone mouthpiece of their owners? I cannot tell you, for sure, but I suspect it’s more of the latter, rather than the former.
So, Canada, don’t be fooled.
Just because there are so many headlines, doesn’t mean it’s true.
Better read than dead???
