The first killer hidden inside the ‘non-binding’ Global Compact for Migration

Censorship News Concept

The first killer hidden inside the ‘non-binding’ Global Compact for Migration is the one that slaughters free speech and journalistic freedom. Like all effective killers, its actual intent is hidden behind a claim that free speech of the media is respected.

As the saying goes, actions speak louder than words: before the conference has even started, conservative media outlet Rebel Media has been refused permission to cover the conference.

The journalist they are sending has 34 years experience in the field as both a journalist and an editor, yet he has been denied media accreditation to attend and report on the Global Compact for Migration conference. His response to being banned is below. He rightly calls the nameless official out for claiming to value accurate reporting. He asks, “Why wouldn’t you want critical journalists to have access to all the facts and information at a conference about migration?”

He also points out that the perception that the Canadian media are now controlled by the government and no longer independent is supported by the Canadian government’s $595 million dollar media bail-out. The fact that Rebel Media – who were not part of that bail out- are now being silenced, feeds the accusation that political criticism has been stifled.

Nobody List Green MP Golriz Ghahraman has held up Canada’s support of the Global Compact for Migration as a reason why New Zealand should sign it but if Canada is censoring independent conservative media before it is even signed why on earth would New Zealand want to emulate them?

Already in New Zealand, Stuff is refusing to cover the other side of the issue of climate change and is censoring comments that present another point of view. Their actions are being praised and promoted by the Green Party’s co-leader James Shaw.  Is Stuff already compromised? Will signing this dangerous pact lead to more mainstream media censoring and controlling the narrative?

Paragraph 33 c

It is clear from paragraph 33 c) of the pact that the global intention is to control the media narrative on migration. Here is what it says. quote.

OBJECTIVE 17: Eliminate all forms of discrimination and promote evidence-based public discourse to shape perceptions of migration 33. […]

c) Promote independent, objective and quality reporting of media outlets, including internetbased information, including by sensitizing and educating media professionals on migration-related issues and terminology, investing in ethical reporting standards and advertising, and stopping allocation of public funding or material support to media outlets that systematically promote intolerance, xenophobia, racism and other forms of discrimination towards migrants, in full respect for the freedom of the media. end quote.

Translation:

To ensure that only the officially approved global view of migration is disseminated to the public we will control and censor the media in the following ways:

  1. We will ‘sensitise’ and ‘educate’ media professionals on the correct ‘terminology’ to use when writing about migration issues. Any words with negative connotations will be banned. We will provide the MSM with a list of approved positive words and a list of banned negative words.
  2. While many media organisations will be happy to control the narrative the way we want it, some will put up a fight and demand freedom of the press. We will counter this problem in the following ways.
  a) We will use the carrot by “investing” in “ethical reporting standards and advertising” so that media outlets who comply will be financially rewarded with government patronage, which will be supplied via advertising and funds towards reeducating their journalists.

b) We will use the stick by taking away “public funding” or any other “material support” from media outlets that refuse to control the narrative the way we want it controlled.

In other words, we will show full respect for the freedom of the press, but if they refuse to say what we want them to say they will have to suffer the financial consequences of defying us.

It is clear that governments who sign up to this dangerous pact are being encouraged to prevent conservative, independent media from asking the hard questions or getting hold of powerful ammunition like facts! Canada has already led the way by denying media accreditation to Rebel Media, and where Canada goes, nobody Green list MP Golriz Gharaman is eager to follow.
