Fake News Sites

There has of late been great media consternation about the proliferation of fake news sites that mislead voters and generally misinform. There is a growing movement within the MSM, college campuses and even at the White House to have these types of news sites banned.

But back to the original sentence, why is Glacier Media a criminal enterprise, you might ask? Well for starters they engage in software piracy, tax fraud, illegal collusion and employ overseas hackers. If they weren't a politically well connected company they'd be the target of multi-national investigations, instead they receive millions of taxpayer dollars. They might not yet escape unscathed, as California takes software piracy very seriously, and will even seek extradition. As well, while the government of Canada turns a blind eye to the overseas hackers illegally working for Glacier Media, shareholders likely won't feel the same. Part of Glacier's busin…
