Impartial medias out there?

Post by mattinkelowna »

Are there any impartial medias out there?

The owners of Global, Castanet, Black Press and Pattison are all Liberal Party donors. Who can we trust when it comes to delivering impartial news in regards to the provincial election?

Good luck on your search.

Listen to leftwing media & listen to rightwing media, I suspect somewhere in middle is the truth... who the hell knows.

Do you realize that in Canada left-centre and right-centre still generate fact based reporting. For the most part the "bias" is attributed to opinion pieces. Skip them and any reputable news source will give you the facts.

Not necessarily; by omitting certain facts, stories can be biased even though the facts that are presented may be true.

Sure, it is possible, but we have no mainstream media that behaves like certain US outlets - spreading conspiracy theories, presenting lies as facts, refusing to retract statements that are proven to be false are cornerstones of bad media.

Yeah, I haven't seen anyone in Canada get sued for publishing blatantly fake news like CNN and the Washington Post. The CBC isn't impartial and is very left-wing biased, but as far as I've seen they are not being sued for hundreds of millions.
