 Jody Wilson-Raybould, M.P.

I most certainly welcome her to my Party.
How about you?

From: John Feldsted <>
Subject: Government � media collusion

We often hear charges of the media or elements thereof being in bed with government, but rarely see a clear indication. We are so used to the idea that we miss what happens right in front of us.

Alberta oil patch workers decided to send a convoy to Ottawa to protest the federal government�s failure to support pipeline construction, effectively shutting down oilfield production and costing Alberta and Canada thousands of jobs and $ billions in income.

The federal government was deep in the SNC-Lavalin scandal and did not need another protest to deal with. A decision was taken to discredit the Alberta convoy leadership and their message.

As the convoy headed east, media stories started appearing about the Alberta convoy containing anti-immigration and racist elements.

Stop and reread that last sentence.

The stories did not state that anti-immigrant and racist elements had joined the convoy, but that the convoy contained anti-immigration and racist elements. The latter phrasing suggests that the Alberta convoy leaders were part of the radical elements. It was a smear job � character assassination � guilt by association.

As the convoy moved further east, media attention to the radical elements increased and the original message of the convoy was ignored. By the time the convoy reached Ottawa, its appearance was a zoo of various protest groups using the opportunity to get some public and media attention. Convoy leadership had been successfully hijacked.

The final insult came when the media blasted politicians who came out in support of Alberta convoy members for not condemning the anti-immigration and racist elements! The media had used a barrel of ink to raise awareness of these radicals without one word of condemnation and now chastised others for not doing what is should have done from the outset.

The message the Alberta convoy set out to deliver had been successfully muted, lost in a cacophony of competing protests and the government was not forced to address the convoy message.

Most people missed the combined government � media effort to shut down the Alberta convoy protest. That is the danger in uncritical acceptance of media reporting. The hypocrisy is jaw-dropping but typical of this government. The media does not just report on events and outcomes; it is creating outcomes the government wants.
