Could this happen in Canada? You bet it could
Brian Lilley - October 23rd, 2012
Our friends at The Blaze have tipped us off to a good story about an Australian broadcaster sent for what amounts to government mandated re-education for his comments on global warming. From the Sydney Morning Herald.
CONTROVERSIAL shock jock Alan Jones has been ordered to undergo ”factual accuracy” training, and to use fact-checkers, in another damaging blow to his credibility.
Now some of you might be saying that this guy got the facts wrong and therefore he should correct it. Fair enough, corrections are issued by every media outlet in this country, but a government mandated training session in accuracy on a contentious issue sounds more than a little spooky to me.
Could this happen in Canada? Unfortunately I think the answer is yes.
