Another whistleblower from the CBC emerged from the mainstream media propaganda machine recently. Marianne Klowak testified at the National Citizens Inquiry in Ottawa last week.
Until December 2021, Klowak was a 34-veteran of CBC Manitoba, one of the leading investigative journalism bureaux in Canada. As senior reporter, Nowak had been involved in all aspects of news gathering, including radio, television, long and short-form documentaries, current affairs, and web, as a news anchor and an award-winner for a series called Pandemic Perspectives.
But when COVID came along, everything in the newsroom changed.
“I know that as a public broadcaster, you expect us to be telling the truth, and we’ve stopped doing that,” said Klowak. “It was as if the rules had changed overnight. I was blocked from doing stories that I had pitched, and they never saw the light of day. A number of stories that I put forward were blocked. Some of those stories were protests about vaccine mandates, people’s safety concerns about the vaccines, and the many problems with reporting adverse reactions in Canada.”
Klowak also found that her stories were now being vetted by an ever-growing number of people. One that she pitched and wrote on the subject of parents’ concerns with the vaccine, which included testimony from a reputable scientist at the Canadian Covid Care Alliance (CCCA), was flagged by a local web writer in Manitoba. She sent an internal email, and it was then decided that the story should be sent to the Toronto Health Unit. “Never before had my stories been under such scrutiny. During the three decades of years of my career at the CBC, 30 to 35 percent of my stories were health stories. I’d never had one of them sent to Toronto,” said Klowak. Five weeks later, she got a response from Toronto. They raised two concerns, one over the fact that the Covid Care Alliance supported the use of ivermectin to treat COVID and the second that some members of the CCCA chose to be anonymous. Then, they instructed her to drop all references to the CCCA and insert information from a pro-vax, CBC-approved source.
As a veteran journalist, Klowak had solid contacts in the community. “People were calling me with stories of suffering and pain, and these stories weren’t being told. Some were from the vaccine injured, others who had lost their jobs because of vaccination status, others who had been ostracized and their families blown apart, university students who were depressed over repeated lockdowns and mandates, parents agonizing over the decision to vaccinate their child or not.”
But as her story pitches were repeatedly turned down, Klowak became increasingly distressed. “I failed these people as a journalist as I couldn’t give voice to their truth. The way I saw it was that we were, in fact, pushing propaganda. We betrayed the public, and we broke their trust. We had been riding on a reputation of excellence for years. And now we were quickly shutting down one side of the debate. We branded the doctors and experts the CBC chose as competent and trustworthy, and those who questioned or challenged the narrative, we branded as dangerous and spreading disinformation.”
Klowak voiced her dismay to all levels of management across the CBC over several months. She took a witness to every meeting. But nothing changed, “complaints and criticism from listeners and viewers continued to mount. People told me they felt betrayed and lied to. They no longer trusted the CBC to tell them both sides of an issue.”
And they were right to distrust the CBC. “Not only had we shut down one side by silencing anyone opposing the narrative, but we had also designated ourselves as the gatekeepers of truth.”
The CBC pushed propaganda and manipulative persuasion in the service of an agenda.
Our media is supported by Big Pharma-sorcery as far as advertising dollars go. Probably similar in other world media markets. Therefore, to contradict the bogus narrative would lower advertising revenue. There were also reports bribes were paid to peddle favorable narratives by those that would deceive all nations. The worship of money is truly the root of all evil.
