Fake news broadcast by media-bashing Tory MP deleted from Facebook - 2017-07-18
Conservative MP Cheryl Gallant's recent mock newscast called Gallant Nightly News (GNN) took aim at Omar Khadr's $10.5-million settlement with the Liberal government — and Canadian media's coverage of the controversy.
"Whether it's the Toronto Star, CBC, Globe and Mail, CTV or even the National Post, editorialists and columnists have been tripping over themselves in a rush to justify Justin's payout to Khadr," Gallant said on a "special edition" of GNN on July 13.
The CNN-inspired newscast, which is no longer available on Gallant's Facebook page, also took aim at Global News. Gallant did not respond to Global News' request for an interview by the time of publication.
