Canadian journalists show a lack of integrity on NAU agenda
by John Stokes
Many Canadians who have heard references to the clandestine and fascist North American Union (NAU) agenda, will tend to dismiss it. After all, if the "rumours" were true, wouldn't "all this" have been openly discussed in Canada's large mass-media fora. The members include daily newspapers like the Toronto Star, CTV's Globe and Mail, Quebecor's Ottawa Sun or CanWest Global newspapers like the Montreal Gazette, and the Vancouver Sun. It is indeed true that "Media concentration is worse in Canada than [it is] in other industrialized countries", confirms media economics expert Robert Picard. LINK
It is also true that over 80% of the Canadian media, is owned by the five largest media companies, resulting in "increasingly homogenous perspectives." CanWest Global, the largest Canadian media company, controls over 30 per cent of the Canadian media market, including 14 metropolitan daily newspapers and hundreds of community papers. Furthermore, it is also true that Big Business interests in Canada that support the NAU agenda, are all linked to the small clique of elites who own Canada's print, radio, television mass media. This circle of elites, have indeed used its fascist control of Canada's media organization to keep NAU out of the headlines.
However, once upon a time, Canadian journalists had also demonstrated integrity. Canadian journalists specifically, once viewed their professional and civic duty to inform Canadians about threats to their sovereignty, in relation to their vital rights as Canadians. This was the era from the late 1960's into the late 1980's which involved Peter C. Newman and Walter Gordon at the Toronto Star, and when CBC sought to broadcast groundbreaking investigative journalism like the critically acclaimed This Hour Has Seven Days. During the early 1970's, and the Free Trade debate period of the late 1980's, Canadian journalist played a vital role in letting Canadians know threats to their nationhood posted by U.S. backed interests.
Nowadays, the average Canadian journalist prostitutes his/herself in behalf of his/her institutional pimps.
Canadian journalists nowadays, lack in general, a passion for their profession in exhibiting a process of critically informing the public in democracy, and specifically lack a sense of social responsibility on issues of our nationhood as Canadians. That is why the NAU agenda has been able to be repressed.
Canadian journalists rather than coming together, and going on strike, if necessary, to defend the integrity of their profession on this apparent extensive conspiracy, have elected to "see no evil, hear no evil, and speak no evil". It appears nowadays, that it would not be very difficult to get pay a Canadian journalist to mindlessly write, or otherwise broadcast that the "world is flat". Canadians, who seek to critically inform themselves of the NAU conspiracy, cannot rely on obtaining critical information from journalists who have sold out their profession and probably their souls for a "mess of pottage.
