Tweet by Robert F. Kennedy Jr. on NCI testimony has gone viral

Nationwide: The testimony of former CBC/CTV correspondent Rodney Palmer to the National Citizens Inquiry has gone viral on Twitter thanks to a tweet by U.S. Presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

In his testimony, Palmer exposed how the CBC has transformed from newsgathering to propaganda.

Shortly after 9:00 o’clock Wednesday morning, Kennedy tweeted:

“Everyone needs to watch this devastating dissection by one of Canada’s leading journalists of how global media icons were transformed into slavish government propagandists during Covid crisis. This testimony should be mandatory in every journalism school.”

Kennedy provided a link to a video prepared by Odessa Orlewicz who hosts “Liberty Talk Canada” on the website.

In a follow-up tweet, Kennedy asserted that “The process of government-media propaganda coordination is not limited to Canada, nor to Covid issues.”

In less than 24 hours Kennedy’s tweet had more than 1.6 million impressions, 26,500 likes and more than 10,400 re-tweets.

During his testimony Palmer said he was testifying about the CBC but added that it applies to most news media in Canada.

Palmer testified a second time at the NCI, shedding light on the CBC’s use of “chosen experts” who receive government grants, leading to potential biases in reporting. veteran-journalist-rodney-palmer-exposes-the-cbcs-lies-and-propaganda-ottaw.html

When former CBC journalist Trish Wood heard Palmer’s testimony, she tweeted:

“As a former CBC journalist, watching Rodney Palmer’s evidence about the corp’s fall into absolute corruption was heartbreaking. I knew every word was true but he was so eloquent – I was broken-hearted about my old profession, yet again. Bravo to the #NCI @Inquiry_Canada.”
