I can’t help but notice that National Post’s Jonathan Kay has been trumpeting Sun News Network and Ezra Levant lately. Which seems odd in that Kay works for Sun Media’s primary competitor, Postmedia.
It’s not just the free praise and publicity that Kay has showered on Levant and co. It’s most likely a coincidence but it almost seems that Kay and the National Post are coordinating reporting and opinion columns in the newspaper with the struggling news network. Can you tell the difference in the following two articles, one from Kay and the other from Sun’s Brian Lilley? One could almost be excused for being a little suspicious. It’s at best odd.
It’s not just Kay. Jon Ivison and Christie Blatchford (and of course Kay) have been relentless on covering the plight of our Natives, each using racial language to diminish First Nations in almost the identical obsessive manner used by Levant’s station.
Remember that silly Trudeau Alberta video that set the media on fire awhile ago? Guess who pushed the Sun News Network-derived video as a news item? Andrew Coyne in the National Post. See a pattern emerging here? Odd indeed.
