Don't believe anything from Rebel News, it's a well known far right site that promotes propaganda, conspiracy theories, and pseudoscience, and shows poor sourcing and failed fact checks. At best it has to be considered a highly questionable source. Try a search argument like "Is CPP actuarially sound" and you'll find lots of stuff from reputable sources, including the Office of the Chief Actuary, indicating CPP is sound for at least the next 75 years.

Maybe so, but The Rebel is a great source for trying to get the other side of the story out to we the peasants that the fake MSM and our fake politicians do not want us to hear or know about. Pretty much everything The Rebel says is fact checked. And when they do make an error in their reporting they admit it.

But It's for gawd dam sure that I am never going to listen to or believe or trust anything that the leftist liberal bought off CBC has to say. When a media has been bought off, like the CBC has, you know the truth will never be reported. Just lies and bullshit only. Other so called news outlets like GloBull and CTV are not much better either. They are also getting huge taxpayer dollar funded handouts from the government also.

During the truckers convoy, The Rebel was onsite talking to the truckers and getting their side of the story. The CBC did the opposite and did not want to hear their story but instead tried to make the truckers look like a bunch of Nazis and racists. Geez boy, wake up.

Okay, so, just where does The Rebel promote propaganda conspiracy theories and shows poor sourcing and reporting? Just curious, that's all.

Well? You now have the floor. :unsure:

Prove it doesn't.

That's your usual tactic, isn't it? Make an unsupported statement and demand that others prove it's not true?

We all know the guy is a bit flaky, but he does have a very valid point about ROI. Nearly all of us would have a far bigger pension if the same money us and our employers donated to CPP. Also when one has more than one employer, both of you are paying the maximum, and while your overpayment can be reclaimed at tax time employers do not have that luxury.

Yup don’t give those guys any credibility , they are more biased then Rebel .
I suggested starting there, not taking it as the definitive last word on the subject. That page gives a short list of failed fact checks that can be easily verified from other sources for anyone so inclined. Nobody who wants to understand what’s going on can rely on a single source.

It’s also useful the check the Wikipedia entries for Ezra Levant and his Rebel media site. There you’ll find out about multiple violations of the Canadian Broadcast Standards Council’s code of ethics, multiple rants defaming certain ethnic and religious minorities, and five libel suits filed against him. Two of them he lost, and the judges felt moved to comment on his reckless disregard for the truth, the other three were settled out of court for undisclosed amounts and he had to issue public apologies and retractions in which he admitted to using false facts. He’s also argued in writing in favour of dismantling trade unions, public pensions, and the medical care system, obviously in complete ignorance of what such institutions have achieved.

Those of you who occupy the same intellectual landscape he does will probably read that as further evidence of how the mainstream media and the judiciary have been bought off and corrupted, though by whom and for what purpose has never been adequately explained or demonstrated. That strange world of far right libertarianism, paranoia, conspiracy, and false facts, is nothing but divisive and destructive. He’s a far right provocateur, that’s the job he’s created for himself and he’s good at it, but it also means he can’t be taken at face value as a reliable or credible source of information and analysis.

Their purpose? Best explanation I ever heard. . .

"The Jew is using the Black as muscle against you. And you are left there helpless."
--Henry Gibson as the Illinois Nazi, The Blues Brothers

It's the beautiful consistency of conspiracy theories. Any facts that demonstrate the theories' falsity are "faked." To construct a syllogism. . .

Major Premise: Everything that supports my whimpering sense of hard-done-by is true.
Minor Premise: Fact X does not support my whimpering sense of hard-done-by.
Conclusion: Therefore, Fact X is not true.

Applying accurate logic to utter bullshit is all-but-literally polishing a turd.

It was the poster that said that The Rebel was promoting propaganda theories and shows poor sourcing. I just asked the poster to show me the proof.

Your usual tactic is to support all things leftist liberal. Why don't you ever think before you open your big lefty mouth, chief stunned? :D

The MSM is always shows their liberal bias. CBC/CTV/GloBull are and do show their bias towards conservatives. Who's to say that this media bias/fact check outfit that you posted is not bias and they are liberal at heart? I suppose that The Rebel can be seen as bias. They are pretty much a conservative reporting media outfit and of course their reports will be seen as bias by the liberal establishment. That is a fact of life. Everybody on this earth has their own bias in some way. All The Rebel does is to try and get the other side of the story that the MSM will not do. The MSM is bias. Believe it or not. :)

Are you that stunned where you believe and can honestly say that conspiracies do not exist? :rolleyes:
