In Canada there has been a cover-up. Girls in an elementary school have been kicked, choked and hurt by refugee boys. The mainstream media with one exception showed no interest in covering the story. The newspaper that did cover the story quickly edited facts out after the story went viral and eventually removed it all together.
I was curious as to why the newspaper had covered the story in the first place given that no other media was interested in the story and the reason was as sad as it is fascinating.
Insiders at the Chronicle Herald noted the paper’s staff has been on strike for 12 weeks, with many inexperienced reporters taking their place. They suggested managers may have missed the holes in the story’s reporting because of overwork and exhaustion. In a Facebook post, Martin O’Hanlon, the president of CWA Canada, the union representing the paper’s staff, said, “This would never have happened if real journalists were on the job instead of scabs.”
In my mind those ‘inexperienced’ reporters recognised a genuine public interest news story. Their crime was not knowing that media organisations these days are more interested in political correctness than telling the truth.
