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.
Well, as a free speech absolutist I'm not in favour of restricting anyone's right to publish misleading and even downright false information (as long as it's not slandering an individual). However, as a public service, since there is so much concern over 'news' sites like these, I've compiled a list of some of the most egregious fake news sites online. They range from sites that bend stories to fit a certain narrative to others who create elaborate fake stories, or feature opinion writers writing columns that many of today's university students would consider hate speech (such as the Guardian's Julie Bindel advocating putting all men in concentration camps).
At any rate consider yourself forearmed:

Trudeau's tearful apology tour

The conservative leadership race according to Lauren Southern

To be fair the above headline should include Faith Goldy, but there's only so much room. At any rate the two Rebel Media reporters posted a piece online attempting to explain the Canadian Conservative Party leadership race to be decided this May. It's a crucial choice for a party that's gotten it so wrong, so many times, and to bungle it this time means another four years of Justin Trudeau, and he's already done a lot of damage.
If you're as yet unfamiliar with the boy king (his father, Pierre, ruled Canada for 16 years) then check out this link:

 And that's no exaggeration, a lot of his 'finest' moments didn't even make the cut.


However back to the Tory leadership race, as far as anyone sensible person should be concerned right-leaning Maxine Bernier is the only choice for Canada.
And to her credit, Lauren Southern chose Bernier as her top pick for Conservative leader and (hopefully) Prime Minister…

Youtube the multi billion dollar corp that steals from me

A couple of weeks back the ad sense account linked to my Youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCR53rN77zIQ1hbuIZfGZDHw showed revenue declining. I don't mean revenue was going down as compared to previous days, accrued revenue in my account was being subtracted. At first just a couple of dollars a day, but now it's $9-$10, so at that pace it won't take long until my entire account is emptied.
During this period my fewer ship has increased substantially, in a 45 day period I gained 3000 subscribers and went from just several hundred views to almost 400,000. Yes I've had a few of my nearly 50 videos demonetized, but actually none of the real blockbuster ones (over 10,000 views) and I've received no community or copyright strikes. So what's going on?
This is exactly what I asked Youtube, repeatedly. At first their answer was analytics and Ad Sense can take a few days to reconcile their numbers, when I pointed out I was talking about a period of weeks, …
