A retired Canadian colonel testified that legacy media outlets are “ministries of propaganda” while at the same time the federal government’s research shows that Canadians do not want members of the cabinet deciding what news is “fake” or not.

Retired Canadian Lt. Col. David Redman over a week ago told a Senate committee investigating internet regulation that mainstream media during the COVID crisis of the past three years did not accurately report news about the government’s actions.

Meanwhile, according to Blacklock’s Reporter, a report by the federal Communications Security Establishment titled Study on Online Disinformation Advertising Creative Testing noted how internet users from eight online focus groups said they were smart enough to know what is and is not misinformation online.

“Many participants expressed reservations about the Government of Canada telling Canadians what is true or false,” said the report, adding that the users suggested the focus should be on “helping Canadians identify misinformation through tips and tricks, being careful to provide neutral information without any political lens.”
