Hilariously, in his application for judicial review on behalf of Rebel News, Ezra Levant brags about Der Rebel's membership in the utterly bogus and self-created Independent Press Gallery:
And if you check out the IPG's Mission Statement, well, that's some funny shit there:
Perhaps Ezra Levant of Rebel News should have a chat with Ezra Levant of the Independent Press Gallery, just so they can agree on their stories.
Ezra's fans wouldn't see the contradiction if you smeared it all over their faces.
Some wag put it this way :
"Having invented their own "media outlets" so they could claim to be "media," these same valueless hacks proceeded to invent their own press gallery, which then turned around and awarded them accreditation as being officially recognized by a press gallery"
Anon: Not sure if you were being witty, but I'm pretty sure that's something CC himself wrote once upon a time.
I love the IPG. Not sure what amuses me most -
- the fact that it seems to consist exclusively of ex-Rebel hangers on?
- the fact that their principles are cribbed verbatim from an internationally recognized statement of journalism standards, with one small addition - that no actual journalist in Canada can ever be a member (since even the loathsome "Epoch Times" receives government subsidies)?
- the fact that their logo is obviously designed to mimic CBC's graphic elements, from the color to the symmetry to the component shapes - presumably to deceive unwary security guards?
Anon@ 12:23 A direct quote actually ;-)
