This should raise some serious red flags about how we get our information from the news.

Why? False news is not permitted in Canada.

What's so new about so-called news generated from so-called entertainment?

Clue for you: It's not about the worthiness of the news; it's about how the MSM is a regurgitation of the same news, right down to the awkward phrasing.
Glad to help.

Bigger clue for you....it's not about news at all. But whatever it is, it can't be "false" in Canada or there will be hell to pay!

Enormous tip for you: Don't listen to the guy in your head telling you everything has to do with Canada.
