Ezra Levant, World's Biggest Hypocrite




Well perhaps Ezra Levent isn't the world's biggest hypocrite, but he's certainly up there. Why pray tell? You might ask. And I will tell you, Levant portrays himself as the tireless champion of free speech, but when it comes to any criticism of Canadian corporate media he will do all in his power to silence said criticism, including slandering yours truly.


Why does someone I've never met spread slander about me? I surmise there can be only one reason for him to do so, because I dared to compete against his buddies at Glacier/Post Media. In Canada, if you dare to challenge the market share of the corrupt media companies you will find yourself viciously slandered, possibly subject to phone hacking and blacklisted as a journalist (when it comes to evil corporations they're pretty much the model). Levant began his career with a Glacier Media affiliate and believe me, he would not have been allowed to pursue any of his subsequent media projects without their's, and the rest of the media cabal's blessing. In fact it's very likely that Rebel Media is funded by those selfsame media companies.
So the anti-capitalist, government funded media will never face criticism from Levant and Rebel Media. Unlike Andrew Breitbart, who constantly challenged established media in the U.S, The Rebel tries to protect established media (focusing solely on the public broadcaster the CBC). But nevertheless Levant clearly has dreams of being the Breitbart News of the north (after trying to become Fox News of the north with Sun News failed). The critical difference being, Rebel Media is not truly independent, and the minute their corporate masters say enough, all of those crusading free speech journalists at the Rebel are in for a rude awakening.
As I mentioned in an earlier post, Lauren Southern and a few other Rebel Media personalities should break away and create a truly independent media company while they still can. This is of course exactly what established media is terrified of, which is why they helped create Rebel Media. It's not about ideology for them, it's about market share.
Some of you may think there is no chance Rebel Media will be defanged. However, I would direct you to The National Post. In the late 90s they were going to change the media landscape, now they're a Toronto Star retread, with articles by 'conservative' Kelly McFarland writing how brave (and no, he's not being satirical) President Obama is in stabbing Israel in the back on his way out the door.
Or 'free trader' Terrence Corcoran writing about how Canada's broadcast media duopolies must be protected by limiting consumer choice, cause how dare they have to compete on a level playing field.
These are both writers who contributed to Levant's Western Standard magazine (full disclosure I also used to write for that publication, but I have always been a libertarian and remain a diehard free speech advocate) so don't be too surprised if in the not too distant future Lauren Southern decides maybe feminism isn't all bad, and Sheila Gunn Reid comes down on the side of a national energy program. Remember, you heard it here first.

Royal Canadian Navy scandal kept under wraps with help of MSM

A somewhat recent Maclean's magazine article (Canada's Time, except, amazingly, more left wing) was headlined: The (Canadian Vice Admiral) Mark Norman firing mystery.

Then goes on to provide absolutely no analysis whatsoever regarding the mystery, other than putting it down to Canadian defence bureaucracy. There's some hard hitting news from Canada's newsmagazine, about the largest scandal to hit Canadian politics since... well ever, nothing comes close, the Sponsorship Scandal pales in comparison to the the ongoing Navy shipbuilding scandal. With the exception that the media this time won't touch it.

Another article earlier this year from Canada's national broadcaster, the CBC, written by senior defence reporter, Murray Brewster, mentioned the vice admiral's removal, then did the bait and switch to the pervious Conservative government's purchase of sea sparrow missiles. That story was a non-scandal scandal the leftist media has tried to promote, criti…

DON'T support Rebel Media!

The above headline might seem odd coming from a right-leaning libertarian website, but I assure you it isn't.

Rebel Media is on a fundraising kick this holiday season, hoping to be the Breitbart News of the north. But they can never be Breitbart News for one fundamental reason, they are not a truly independent media outlet like Breitbart.

Media in Canada (and yes I'm speaking from firsthand experience) is about as corrupt as it gets. In print media four major companies control just about everything, and to make matters worse, they don't compete against each other, they illegally collude to secure monopoly markets for themselves.
And on top of that, they are inter-owned. Of the four print media companies, Glacier Media, Black Press, Torstar and Post Media, Post Media owns (approximately) 15 percent of Glacier, and Torstar owns 15 percent of Black Press.

Now you might think the two inter-owned entities would at least compete against each other, but you'd be wrong. Glaci…

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, …
