Guardian Vs. The Truth

In 2013, the Guardian said Hudson Bay Polar Bears were on the verge of extinction. As is normally the case with the Guardian, they were promoting propaganda and misinformation.

“Polar bears are one of the biggest conservation success stories in the world,” says Drikus Gissing, wildlife director for the Canadian territory of Nunavut. “There are more bears here now than there were in the recent past.”

“Almost everybody agrees that there are between 20,000 and 25,000 polar bears alive today. Here’s another thing almost everyone agrees on: That number is a whole lot bigger than it was 40 years ago.”

    Now with the internet we have so many more avenues for people to write stories that many are forced to make up their own when none can be found, and what better way to keep your job than shouting to the world that the sky is falling if we don’t stop eating or breathing so much. It’s like the call to suicide.

    I believe Canada is convinced the artic is melting and as a result the bears and lemmings are going to suffer, I guess more so than the rest of humanity.

    The Guardian is staffed by sensationalist pathological liars who are only interested in making money by frightening people.

    The Guardian : “Comment is free, but facts are sacred”.

    “Comment is free,” wrote Guardian editor CP Scott in 1921, “but facts are sacred”. He was creating his manifesto for the Guardian newspaper on its first century, a set of ideals journalists can still sign up to. “Fundamentally it implies honesty, cleanness, courage, fairness, a sense of duty to the reader and the community.”

    The Guardian does not concern itself with facts, just twisted opinions and propaganda like the BBC
