We all know that the news is slanted. But recently in Canadian politics a story came up that made this so painfully obvious. This story might not be of immediate interest to non-Canadians. But bear with me. It points to bigger problems.
It’s a story about Eve Adams, a former Conservative party member who defected to the Liberal side. On CBC TV she was televised live with the Liberal leader Justin Trudeau.
Smiling and wide-eyed, she seemed enamored with Trudeau, telling us what a strong, optimistic leader he was. Adams also said she left the Conservative party because it was “mean-spirited.” So I accepted what she said at face value, until later in the evening when I found this news story. Here we find a very different Eve Adams:
And then this:
I don’t know what Adams’ true reasons were for leaving the Conservative party. But I think it’s important to read all the different sides to the story. And I can only wonder how many other news stories – not to mention scientific findings – are just as colored as we see in these reports.

You know, as a practising Christian I try hard not to judge others.
But there’s always the reality of people who are not sane and really quite bent on evil.
If you think I’m being xtreme, just take a look at this document. It’s a letter of agreement signed by Adolf Hitler and the British PM Neville Chamberlain.
And we know what Hitler did shortly after.
