CBC lies like Global (and for the same cause)

Readers of this site may remember last week’s catch of Canadian TV network, Global News, misrepresenting the motives of a drunk at a staging of Fidler on the Roof, in what has to be a conscious lie, in order to slander President Trump by association.

This of course is the same playbook the CBC has been using for many years now.

For those following the protests in France this past week, you know its a mix of groups and the number of protestors is likely in the tens of thousands. ANTIFA, other communist groups, right wing groups, pretty much everyone is involved in this protest albeit likely for different reasons and hoping for a different outcome.

Lets see how the CBC frames it:

Yep. FAR RIGHT WING and five thousand of them.

Once again we see that the CBC is nothing but stenographers for the Liberal Party of Canada first, and any far left wing globalist and Islamophilic extremists second.

UPDATE:

Even the commie NYT has it close to right on France:

French protest movements come and go, but this one, organized on the internet, is different. Welling up rapidly from rural and forgotten France, this broad-based, citizen-driven movement is among the most serious challenges yet to President Emmanuel Macron’s pro-business government, say analysts, political opponents and even many of Mr. Macron’s supporters.

[…]

The movement appears to be without leaders, and the opposition parties in France have scrambled to keep up with it.

“This amateurism, it’s the sign of the crisis of the French political system,” said Dominique Reynié, a political scientist at Sciences Po, referring to the protesters’ loose organization.

[…]

Saturday’s protesters came from all over France. Many said they had been recruited on the internet, followed no political movement and emphasized that they simply didn’t have enough to live on.

The CBC had to make it “right wing extremists” of course.

  2. What Riots? ABC Ignores Paris Burning Amid Protests Against Gas Tax Hike

    As Americans begun celebrating the holiday season, almost 300,000 French people took to the streets to protest a massive fuel tax hike proposed by President Emmanuel Macron to fight climate change. The protests turned violent Saturday as the now-rioters began digging up the streets of Paris and trying to construct barricades as police fought back with tear gas and water cannons. Despite this ongoing battle, ABC News had not reported one word about it on air. Not even on Saturday’s World News Tonight.

    During Saturday’sNBC Nightly News, anchor Jose Diaz-Balart covered the unfolding Paris riots in a news brief:

    This was a violent day in the heart of Paris as about 5,000 demonstrators converged on the Champs-Elysees. The protest was sparked by a plan to raise gas prices and the rising costs of living in France. Protesters lit fires, set up barricades. The police responded with tear gas and water cannons. 18 people were arrested. At least 19 were reported injured.

    While there was no Saturday edition of CBS Evening News as it was bumped by college football, they did dedicate time to it on their streaming news service, CBSN. Combined with their partners at the BBC, anchor Reena Ninan noted the protests had grown from just being about the fuel tax to being against Macron’s entire government.

    “Thousands across France are also protesting President Emmanuel Macron’s administration. Macron has defended the fuel tax saying they’ necessary to wean the country off fossil fuels,” she reported. These riots come after the liberal media have long sung their praises for how Macron’s intelligence and wisdom surpassed President Trump’s.

    The report was then turned over to BCC correspondent Lisa Hampele. “Organizers bill this as act II of their rolling campaign,” she told viewers. “They’re angry about an increase in diesel tax justified by the government as an anti-pollution levy. But the campaign has grown into a broad opposition against President Emmanuel Macron.”

    Hampele spoke with two of the protester. They weren’t young people either, they were both older French citizens tired of being taxed to death. Translating for them, Hampele said:

    This metal worker says: “We feel like we’ve been working for years now and it’s just extortion while men in the government live like princes.”

    “It’s not even possible to live anymore after paying taxes,” says this woman. “I’m disgusted. I’m telling you, if I saw him I wouldn’t be able to shake his hand. And I would tell him exactly what I think.”

    “But as protesters let off fireworks, authorities have the power to move them on,” Hampele noted as she began wrapping up her report. “Close to 300,000 people protested across France last week. It’s estimated that by the end of today, 30,000 would have taken to the streets here in Paris.”

    It’s worth noting that while CBS and NBC did note the tax hikes were on the fuel prices, they failed to mention they were tied to the Paris climate accord. The liberal media decried Trump’s refusal to bow to the accord and treated him as the lone standout. But these protesters apparently can’t stand the effects either.

  3. Ostensibly, Micron’s tax hike supposedly will get more drivers to take mass transportation. After all, who wouldn’t want to ride on a French subway?
