The CBC is after political blood. The brouhaha over alleged mysterious e-mails between the premier's office and Alberta's justice department has all the appearances of a political lynching, in which a news agency concocts a story to bring down a political figure it deems dangerous to the values of the legacy media. .That’s looks exactly like what’s happening to Smith right now: a media lynching..Why?First, the state broadcaster must really resent the fact there's a provincial premier willing to stand up to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau with the Alberta Sovereignty Act and with the backbone to resist the federal government’s COVID-19 mandates and its persecution of those who rejected them. .So Big Brother CBC has been running a series of stories that allege Smith deliberately interfered in the Alberta justice system by sending emails to provincial Justice Minister and Attorney General Tyler Shandro.Then on Thursday the CBC found a political scientist who suggested an “independent investigation” was required to clear the air because there was so much “smoke” indicating “a fire.” .Yet, the whole thing is based on e-mails the CBC admits it hasn’t seen and certainly hasn’t read, and anonymous sources the CBC says it is protecting from “professional repercussions.” .What a load of crap. .If there are people working for the premier who are making these allegations then they should have the courage to come forward and publicly say so. If they are lying, there damn well should be professional repercussions and they should be fired. .This is the same nonsense that affected the presidency of Donald Trump for four years. There was never a hint of proof that Trump had colluded with Russia. It was largely based on an outrageous briefing note originally created to bolster Hilary Clinton’s campaign and was kept on life support by Democratic politicians like Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) who continued to insist he had secret information from anonymous sources. Special Counsel Robert Mueller exonerated Trump, but that still didn’t stop the lies or the half-witted speculation. .For her part Danielle Smith wants an apology from the CBC and she has said so publicly: "the CBC over a report that claimed someone in her office had contacted the Crown's office to interfere with the case of people charged at the Coutts border blockade.".“Last week, the CBC published a defamatory article containing baseless allegations that Premier’s Office staff sent a series of emails to Alberta Crown prosecutors concerning charges related to the Coutts protest and other pandemic-related matters before the courts. The CBC admitted it had not seen any of the emails," said a statement from Smith's office Wednesday afternoon." .“This article was then used and editorialized by the Official Opposition to smear the reputations of the premier, her office staff, Alberta Crown prosecutors and the Alberta Public Service." .“The premier calls on the CBC to retract its outrageous story and, further, that the CBC and the Official Opposition apologize to the premier, Premier’s Office staff, Alberta Crown prosecutors and those in the Alberta Public Service, for the damage caused to their reputations and that of Alberta’s justice system." .“The premier publicly campaigned for seven months on exploring ways to grant legal amnesty for individuals charged with non-violent, non-firearms, pandemic-related violations." .Is that why the CBC is so adamant to destroy Smith? Because she wanted to restore faith in public office? Because she thought the pandemic lockdowns had gone too far by destroying businesses and arresting people for skating outdoors, having parties in their homes or leading church services? .Remember that: you couldn’t go to church or workout at the gym because of COVID-19 but the liquor stores and a lot of strip clubs were open across Canada.What does the CBC want you to believe? Well, have a look at one of their top stories from Thursday, which proclaims “COVID-19 misinformation cost at least 2,800 lives and $300M, new report says.” .The report is from an organization that receives its funding from the federal government — just like the CBC. So the organization is apt to tell the public just what the federal government wants it to know — just like the CBC.
