UN Bans The Rebel From Climate Conference

Earlier this month, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) secretariat informed The Rebel, the right wing news and opinion platform published by political commentator Ezra Levant, it was rejecting the outlet’s application to send a producer and a reporter to COP22 on the grounds that “advocacy media outlets do not qualify for accreditation.”

The Rebel had made arrangements for its Alberta bureau chief Sheila Gunn Reid and producer Meaghan MacSween to be in Marrakesh when the conference takes place November 7 to 18. Their applications for media accreditation to UNFCCC were denied and an application for a cameraman is yet to receive a response.

United Nations bars Ezra Levant’s The Rebel from climate conference


Ezra Levant insists he’s not a ‘reporter.’ On this, everyone agrees

Mr. Levant, by his own admission, is not a journalist. “I’m a commentator, I’m a pundit,” he explained to the judge. “I don’t think in my entire life I’ve ever called myself a reporter.”

Gotta keep the narrative in such a way that the truth about it will not be exposed.

Ezra Levant's viewers are already misinformed about climate change. If he went to the conference they wouldn't learn anything and since he won't be there, they still won't learn anything. Now Levant can stoke his persecution complex and squeeze his audience to cover his legal fees. It's win-win.

We have a state run TV network, radio and news channel. That doesn't go far enough for some folks.

And that's where we get accurate information about climate change?

Some want the government to remind them to renew their drivers incenses?

And that has what to do with the UN trying to stifle anybody that disagrees with them? It wasn't too long ago, the left was whining about the media's access to Harper. Its funny to watch people throw their backs out jumping to the other side of the argument.

I've seen it from time to time though they don't cover it very much. You might want to look specifically for such information. That's the usefulness of the internet.

We can't help it. Conservatives have been shown to be more compassionate. That reminds me, I wonder how MF is making out with his letter

I would care about your strange compulsion to feel sorry, but I'm not a conservative. Let the government sort you out.

I've seen it too, but not on MSM, there you mainly get fluff.
