Canada: Thin-skinned mainstream media goes crying to Trudeau

According to Blacklock’s Reporter, Canada’s mainstream media is so thinned skinned that it has gone blubbering to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau asking him to stop people from saying nasty things about them on social media.

Apparently, these mean comments are hurting the feelings of some of Canada’s delicate reporters.

And it seems our self-esteemed mainstream media is demanding an end to free speech, as the comments are not illegal.

Blacklock’s explains (full article behind paywall):

Lobbyists representing the bailout press endorse cabinet censorship of the internet. News Media Canada called itself the nation’s “most precious guardian” of free speech but proposed the Department of Canadian Heritage extend censorship to critics who use legal but hurtful words against media: “The news publishing industry remains under threat from the unregulated and unchecked social media.”
