Trudeau Liberals Want All Media Beholden To Them

Trudeau Liberals Want All Media Beholden To Them

WINNIPEG, MANITOBA  ~~~~~~  February 19, 2021   (LSN)  Liberal heritage minister Steven Guilbeault has been commenting on Australian politics, attacking Facebook for planning to block news-sharing in the country.

Guilbeault and the Liberal government have been escalating their rhetoric against social media companies lately, which just so happens to coincide with more media companies pushing for further government bailouts.

In short, much of the establishment media is pushing for government money at the same time the Liberals are pushing for restrictions on social networks.

The trend here is clear:

The Trudeau government wants dominance over all media.

They are watching the growing influence of Independent Media, and they're watching Canadians be able to share our outrage with the government online and push back against government plans.

And the Trudeau government doesn't like it.

So, they want to gain control over social media companies, force them to subsidize the establishment press, limit free expression, and put government money and power into media companies to make them beholden to the government for their continued existence.

That moves us closer and closer to total state control over the press, which is completely incompatible with democracy.

SpencerFernando.com doesn't take taxpayer money, and never will.

True Independence in media can only come from being reliant on individual Canadians for support, not the government.
