Chatting on Email last night and was basically told that most (all?) US news is politically slanted? Really must be hard to find out what's happening out there?

I suppose our "News" guys must do some of that as well be we have these people who bark in their ears very loudly and publicly if they step over the line.

We at one time had a government agency that did it but they thought they could do a better job?

Media such as Radio and TV is regulated by CRTC but I think they are more concerned with Canadian content.

I'm guessing that wouldn't work south of the border? 🙀


The National NewsMedia Council is a voluntary, self-regulatory ethics body for the news media industry in Canada. It was established in 2015 with two main aims: to serve as a forum for complaints against its members and to promote ethical practices within the news media industry.

The Council deals with matters concerning fairness of coverage, relevance, balance and accuracy of news and opinion reporting. The Council also, when appropriate, represents the public and the media in matters concerning the democratic rights of freedom of speech and freedom of the media.

Membership of news organizations supporting the Council includes most daily and community newspapers, news magazines and online news organizations across Canada, with the exception of Quebec, which is served by a separate provincial press council. Member news organizations pay a fee to belong to the National NewsMedia Council and abide by the decisions of the Council.
