On August 18th Just Right Media was part of the media scrum following the People’s Party of Canada’s veteran’s policy announcement in Gatineau, Quebec.

Marshall McLuhan was wrong – the medium is not the message – the MEDIA is the message and we present this video so our viewers can get a behind the scene’s look at how journalists through both the questions they ask and the questions they DON’T ask, attempt to shape the narrative surrounding this new party.

Not one journalist except for Just Right’s Robert Vaughan asked a question about the new platform plank although Maxime was joined by the writers of the policy at the scrum, veterans all.

Instead, the media asked questions focusing on issues they thought would be controversial, divisive, and cast the People’s Party in a negative light.

Apologies to our French-speaking countrymen but this is the English part of the scrum only. There were no questions in French dealing with the new policy instead, the French language journalists’ questions parroted those of their English colleagues.
