Daddy will decide which news sources are trusted . Daddy will decide what we can watch , say or speak up on. Daddy will decide if you have been bad and have spoken out of turn. Daddy will decide to seize your bank account and keep you locked up until you dare not speak again. SUNNY WAYS indeed ! justins Canada

... and Facebook isn't censoring? Sometimes the enemy of your enemy is your friend, even when they're politicians you agree on nothing else with.

Nanny State.

Liberal voters seem to thrive under Economic Lockdowns and Restrictions.

Stay at home, eat noodles and watch the death tolls on CTV CBC and other pre-approved Govt outlets.

The irony in this signature is priceless.
The only irony is that the people my signature applies to will be the last ones to know given the bubble they've been trained to stay inside. Gibran's only hope is that you'll soon be getting weary of your children, and perhaps just as effective, your children will be getting weary of you.

Good. Social media and news should be separate. The algorithms show you what they see a pattern of, that you want to see. For many who use social media as their news source that's not a good thing. No caveats on views in that statement, I mean everyone. And it undermines journalists who are trying to do their jobs. Not reporters who just read the news, journalists who seek it out. We should be going to the source.

Not sure why leftists want the news censored for Canadians.

Oh wait, yes, it's because they don't want regular Joes to know how badly Trudeau and Singh are effing up the country. But hey, pot is legal, so who cares?

The news isn't censored. Good lord. It's a click away. The news has never been more available ever.

I'm sure none are duplicates.

There are a number of duplicates who argue with themselves when no-one else will do it! :biggrin: :biggrin:

And you don’t think people go to the sites that they agree with? Liberal leaning people will go to liberal leaning news sites, conservatives will go to conservative sites.
I got a lot more variety of news when I was seeing it on Facebook because I was seeing what others were posting. Liberal, conservative and everything in between. Now I only see what I actually seek out. I don’t sit on my search engine all day and search out all the different viewpoints on a topic.
What do you mean go to the source? What is the difference if someone posts a eg. castanet story on facebook or if I go to the castanet app and look at it there. It’s exactly the same. How does it undermine journalists trying to do their jobs when their stories are posted? Especially if they post it?

Facebook. Liberal Party of Canada. Forever connected. Still.
I'm posting this from Traditional lands of the British Empire & the current Lands of The Dominion of Canada.
I also give thanks for this ethos richness bestowed on us via British Colonialism.

Hypocrisy.

Still.
Sufficiently advanced incompetence is indistinguishable from malice. There’s a certain point at which ignorance becomes malice, at which there is simply no way to become THAT ignorant except deliberately and maliciously.
