Quebec Mosque Shooting: MSM Employs Fake News Meme to Present More Fake News

CBC and Global both happen, coincidentally, to be running obfuscating/ fake news about their own faked/obfuscating news  overage regarding the Quebec Mosque incident. I don’t want to spend too much time debunking this crap. So I’ve selected just a couple examples from both stories..
What's interesting is that the media here in Canada is working hard to control the narrative? 

 -I spent much time looking into this incident and covered it in three posts:

*And by controlling the narrative they want to control your perception

CBC quoting an alleged expert... Or at least you are supposed to believe she is?
“According to Brooke Gladstone, host and managing editor of a U.S. radio program on WNYC called On The Media” (appeal to authority)  regarding the claims that they were two suspects in custody. There were actually reports of as many as 4 suspects in custody, but, hey who is really paying attention except for those of us really paying attention?!

According to Brooke Gladstone, who wrote a book.. The logical fallacy of “appeal to authority”
It is, entirely possible that the opinion of a person or institution of authority is wrong; therefore the authority that such a person or institution holds does not have any intrinsic bearing upon whether their claims are true or not.
Brooke Gladstone who 'wrote a book' can just as easily lie, or be persuaded to lie. Since Brooke Gladstone is just another media personality... she can just as well mislead to validate the media- In fact one could say she may be biased for the media. From CBC "Brooke Gladstone is the host and managing editor of U.S. radio program,which looks at how the media can shape world views.

"There almost is never a second shooter," says Gladstone- Oh Really? I’d say Gladstone is full of it!
The entire CBC article is an appeal to some perception of Brooke Gladstones alleged authority- which I have no belief in. There is no reason to believe her or the tripe she is passing off as authority- It’s opinion and nothing more

The article from Global News is another piece of garbage because it employs a guilt by association fallacy presenting everyone who espoused an alternative view of the incident as an “Alex Jones”
‘This week in two online videos, Alex Jones of and guest Matt Bracken, who Jones said is a former U.S. Navy Seal, did their best to cram a square peg into a round hole.

Bracken laid out a conspiracy theory — the core of which was that the attack was actually carried out by militant Islamists for propaganda purposes — as Jones listened approvingly: “You’re on to something big here. Break it down.”
Both pieces are actually opinion pieces regarding a recent news event... Both pieces serve to further obfuscate the incident.  What is very clear is the always perception managing media is doing it duty. Same duty as always, managing perception!
