Justin Trudeau terrified of independent media winning information war, calls for aggressive new censorship to protect mainstream media propangandists.

The reason why the corporate-controlled media no longer holds the same level of sway over public opinion is because of social media, according to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

At a speaking engagement in conservative-leaning Alberta, Trudeau told radio host Ryan Jespersen in an exclusive 30-minute interview on his "Real Talk" podcast that free speech online is part of "a deliberate undermining of the mainstream media" that must stop immediately.

"There are the conspiracy theorists, there are the social media drivers who are trying to do everything they can to keep people in their little filter bubbles to prevent people from actually agreeing on a common set of facts the way CBC and CTV, when they were our only sources of news, used to project across the country, at least a common understanding of things," Trudeau complained.

When Bell Media decided earlier this month to lay off many of its local journalists and sell 45 of its 103 regional radio stations, Trudeau denounced the move, stating that local journalism is what keeps Canadian "democracy" intact.

"There are massive changes that need to happen in our media landscape," Trudeau further told Jespersen in the more recent interview. "And (the) government can try and create conditions and incentives for it to happen."

After previously stating in the same interview that independent, local media is compromising mainstream media outlets that act as mouthpieces for the government, Trudeau confusingly countered this by stating that "we're putting money towards local independent media."

Canadians must choose to deny "encrapification of news," says Trudeau

Last summer, the Canadian parliament passed the so-called Online News Act (ONA) that requires search engines and social media outlets to compensate news outlets for posting their content. Google complied, but Facebook, according to Trudeau, is "choosing to be bad guys about this."

Instead of complying with the ONA, Meta, the parent company of Facebook, is blocking all media content from Canadian publishers both on Facebook and Instagram.

Since all of his efforts to try to control the news from the top down are failing, Trudeau says it is up to individual Canadians to choose to refuse what he described as the "encrapification of news," borrowing this bizarre term from British Columbia Premier David Eby.

Former U.S. President Barack Obama made similar statements last May in an interview with CBS in which he complained about "a divided media," thanks to social media and other independent sources of information.

Obama romanticized about days gone by when America had just "three TV stations," waxing nostalgic about that time when "people were getting a similar sense of what is true and what isn't, what was real and what was not."

"How do we return to that common conversation?" Obama added, wishing he could make America common again through a centralized media. "How can we have a common set of facts?"

Concerning Trudeau's comments about "conspiracy theorists," it should be noted that when government officials use this term, they are typically referring to people who question the government's version of truth. [Because it is a lie]

"Trudeau is a known liar that wants to be a dictator," wrote someone at RT about Canada's current leader.

"I'm from Canada and can say without hesitation that Trudeau is universally despised and will soon be gone," wrote another. "There will be a National Party on that day."

"Major news outlets are shaping public opinion by publishing propaganda and lies instead of truth," said someone else.

"Just look at how the mainstream media ignores the plea of 30,000 murdered Palestinians."
