A View From Behind The News Media Industry With A Journalist Who's Seen Both Sides
In a time where the main stream media is one of the most prevalent bullhorns for information, it's become clear that much of it has been captured by corporate and political interests to, in fact, spread misinformation masquerading as the news.
Rachel Emmanuel had the opportunity to witness this in action from behind the curtains of the MSM while she worked for iPolitics in Ontario as a journalist.
It was there where she found out first hand how censorship in the MSM prevents even well meaning journalists from presenting the truth.
While working on a budding story involving Canada’s Deputy Prime Minister - Chrystia Freeland - her editor was contacted by the DPM’s office to either kill or severely edit the story to present her in a better light.
After a pointed conversation with her editor about it, Rachel realized that she was not going to be able to do real journalistic work for any main stream media outlet in Canada.
Since then, she has move into the "alternative" media as a full time writer/reporter for True North - an online conservative news outlet.
This episode was a fascinating insight into the world of reporting and the professional media landscape in a time when quality reporting and trustworthy journalism has been at historic lows.
Enjoy the episode, and follow Rachel’s work at True North. She’s one of the few out there bringing back journalistic integrity… and that alone deserves our attention.
