Newbie reporters accidentally report the facts

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.

The Rebel media decided to find out the truth and managed to contact three families. One thing all the complainants had in common was their compassion for the refugees. Even though their children had been hurt by them they believed that the problem was because of a lack of resources. They pointed out that these children who couldn’t speak a word of English needed to spend some time learning English and Canadian culture before being dumped in large numbers inside the school system.

The families spoken to by the Rebel Media reporter asked for their identities to be protected due to fears that they would be labelled racists and bigots. One mother feared this label even though she had been actively involved in welcoming and helping refugee families with clothing and other necessities.

In New Zealand we have been very successful at helping refugee and migrant children. This is because we don’t deal with huge numbers.One refugee or migrant child with no English can be helped and given support in a classroom successfully.On the other hand imagine if 20% or more of the classroom was made up of children from a different culture who couldn’t speak a word of English.

In the Canadian school, soccer has been banned from the school yard due to the school’s inability to stop the refugee boys choking and being rough with the girls during sport. Due to the lack of interpreters the school has difficulties communicating with both the refugee students and their parents. According to one Canadian student, if a refugee student chokes a Canadian student they are given time out on a chair whereas if a Canadian student choked a refugee student they would be sent to the Principal’s office and there would be serious consequences.
