HOW LOW CAN YOU GO? Hate media makes inroads into Canada Or Sun Media keeps its promises..

A rather revealing attack-interview à la Fox recently faced off Sun News' Krista Erickson against Montréal dance artist Margie Gillis. Gillis was lured to appear on camera not knowing that a populism-inspired ambush had been laid: Gillis was made to account for every penny of taxpayer $ she had received over the past 39 years! (that appears to have been the original attempt anyway but Gillis managed to save her dignity..)

The "interview" / shouting match is enlightening less for what it reveals about Gillis' finances or the state of the arts in Canada than it does about the psychology of populism and right wing reaction. We have included some good reading tips for students of authoritarianism (and will provide more if asked)

CMAQ: Vie associative

Collectif à Québec: n'existe plus.

Ceci est un média alternatif de publication ouverte. Le collectif CMAQ, qui gère la validation des contributions sur le Indymedia-Québec, n'endosse aucunement les propos et ne juge pas de la véracité des informations. Ce sont les commentaires des Internautes, comme vous, qui servent à évaluer la qualité de l'information. Nous avons néanmoins une Politique éditoriale , qui essentiellement demande que les contributions portent sur une question d'émancipation et ne proviennent pas de médias commerciaux.

This is an alternative media using open publishing. The CMAQ collective, who validates the posts submitted on the Indymedia-Quebec, does not endorse in any way the opinions and statements and does not judge if the information is correct or true. The quality of the information is evaluated by the comments from Internet surfers, like yourself. We nonetheless have an Editorial Policy , which essentially requires that posts be related to questions of emancipation and does not come from a commercial media.
