(LifeSiteNews) – A journalist of over 20 years within Canada’s mainstream media sphere is calling out the industry for pushing a specific narrative during the COVID-19 so-called pandemic.

In an interview with Bright Light News, journalist Rodney Palmer, who spent two decades working for various mainstream outlets, including the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, CTV News, and the Toronto Star among others, called out his fellow media colleagues for “misrepresenting” the story surrounding the COVID pandemic.

“I first started wondering if all the smart people retired or went and tried to earn better money,” Palmer joked at the start of the interview when talking about the mainstream media’s coverage of the so-called pandemic.

“Then I started to realize they can’t all be that dumb as to be missing and misreporting the COVID story, in particular, the numbers … ” the award-winning journalist added.

Specifically, Palmer recalled that he first became concerned with the COVID coverage when he noticed the media stopped saying “deaths from COVID” and began saying “COVID-related deaths.”

“I thought, ‘That’s a very specific change, and it means something, why aren’t they telling us what it means?'” Palmer told Bright Light News. “COVID-related could mean a symptom that’s similar to COVID but actually has no relation, it’s ambiguous, and ambiguity is not what they [the media] strive for.”

“So, it had to be a top-down directive somewhere along the line for them to so consistently be misreporting this story,” the journalist explained.

Palmer then mentioned that this misrepresentation by the mainstream media was made even more apparent during the anti-COVID mandate “Freedom Convoy” protest in Ottawa in February.

The journalist explained that he happened to be in Ottawa when the protest was beginning, and the reports he was hearing from the media, including statements from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau that characterized the Convoy supporters as “right-wing extremists,” contradicted the family friendly environment he was seeing on the ground.

“It felt like the Sunday fair … the mood was consistently jubilant,” relayed Palmer, adding that he saw everything from “kids in strollers” to “African-American evangelists” handing out Bibles and enjoying the pro-freedom festivities.

“[The mainstream media] had a predetermined approach to the story, and they were going for that predetermined approach, reality be damned … ” the longtime reporter continued in the interview.

Describing the current state of the media, Palmer said the “standard of journalism” that he was required to uphold for “20 years” has been abandoned in favor of “advocacy for a point of view.”

Palmer also explained that while news outlets sometimes made “errors” while he was a prominent member of the field nearly two decades ago, it could generally be explained as an unintentional “mistake” and not an instance of the outlet engaging in “malicious” deception.

“But today, it’s a different story,” the former foreign correspondent stated. “There is definitely an agenda being pushed forth, particularly about COVID.”

Palmer highlighted the media’s coverage of Dr. Daniel Nagase, who was accused of spreading “misinformation” by Alberta health authorities when he spoke about the success he had treating COVID patients with the anti-parasitic drug ivermectin.

Constable Helen Grus has twice been targeted by her own Ottawa Police Department for holding “anti-vaccine and anti-mask views” — and has now been suspended for standing for the truth about possibly fatal COVID vaccine effects on infants. 

CONST. GRUS IS BEING SILENCED FOR INVESTIGATING THE TRUTH SURROUNDING A DEAD CHILD! SEND HER SUPPORT ASAP — DO NOT LET HER BE SILENCED BY OTTAWA POLICE! 

Const. Grus has been a stalwart defender of medical freedom and transparency, serving as just one of a small handful of officers who have bravely stood up against Canada’s unrelenting enforcement of COVID vaccines and mandates. 

However, the Ottawa Police Department has now suspended Const. Grus for investigating a possible link between several infant deaths and COVID vaccines. The suspension comes despite police officers regularly asking other citizens for their vaccine status — it seems the question is verboten only when the establishment is uncomfortable.

But before Const. Grus could continue her work into this disturbing pattern, the Ottawa Police quickly banned and suspended her from discovering the vaccination statuses of additional parents who have lost infants.

THAT’S WHY WE NEED YOU TO SPREAD THE WORD — SUPPORT CONST. GRUS AND HER ATTEMPT TO REVEAL THE TRUTH ABOUT COVID VACCINE EFFECTS IN INFANTS! 

There is good reason for Const. Grus' suspicions regarding potentially fatal COVID vaccine side effects.

In fact, American-based leading COVID expert, Dr. Peter McCullough, has sounded the alarm against mass-COVID vaccinations twice — and is facing backlash from his own medical profession as well.

There is too much on the line for us to lose this fight for medical transparency. That's why more people MUST hear about Const. Grus’ attempt to uncover the mystery surrounding potentially fatal effects linked to COVID vaccines and suspicious infant deaths.

With enough Canadians spreading the truth first investigated by Const. Grus, we can overcome the mainstream narrative and government censorship surrounding COVID vaccines.

Now is the time to stand together in support of Const. Grus and condemn the Ottawa Police Department's censorship — stand with Const. Grus and her brave attempt for medical transparency and the truth about COVID vaccination!

SIGN & SHOW YOUR SUPPORT FOR CONST. GRUS.

SHARE THIS IMPORTANT MESSAGE & SPREAD THE WORD TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW.

Const. Grus is a hero for medical freedom and transparency. Stand with her now! 

Thank You 

P.S. — The Ottawa Police Department is expecting to quickly silence Const. Grus without the public's knowledge. But with your help spreading this important message, Const. Grus will gain the attention she needs to sound the alarm against potentially fatal effects linked to COVID and suspicious infant deaths. Stand with Const. Grus before Ottawa Police completely silence her!

“[Contrary to mainstream coverage] the story is not [about] ‘misinformation’ … the story is, ‘a doctor cured COVID with a pill that cost a nickel,'” he stressed.

Palmer is not the first member of the media to accuse mainstream Canadian outlets of intentionally misleading the public in favor of pushing an agenda.

In January, LifeSiteNews reported that former CBC producer and journalist Tara Henley wrote a scathing column accusing the state-funded outlet of pushing a “woke” and “radical political agenda,” both in-house and to the public.

In the column, Henley said the CBC effectively requires its employees to “embrace cognitive dissonance and to abandon journalistic integrity,” making the outlet read “like a parody of the student press.”

In July, Marianne Klowa, a former CBC journalist of 30 years, said the outlet consistently “censored and canceled” stories she proposed that were critical of the COVID vaccines, likewise accusing the institution of having abandoned its commitment “to truth and honesty.”

It is not just media insiders who have begun to notice a problem with Canadian news but ordinary citizens as well.

In a recent study by Oxford’s Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism titled “Digital News Report 2022,” researchers found that only 42 percent of Canadians trust the news, the lowest figure in recorded history. For English-speaking Canadians specifically, the number was even lower at 39 percent.
