Postmedia, the news chain that owns nearly the entirety of mainstream conservative publications in Canada, is in the midst of a right turn, according to a Canadaland investigation.

Reporter Sean Craig found that Postmedia's new CEO, Andrew MacLeod, has given a directive to editors at the chain to make their papers more "reliably conservative" in an effort to fill a supposed gap in Canada's mainstream media landscape.

MacLeod appointed former National Post and Financial Post comment editor, Kevin Libin, to oversee this top-down political directive. Since then, an editor-in-chief was demoted, supposedly for daring to run a pro-carbon tax editorial and questioning Libin's appointment, while some employees have expressed deep concern at the changes and others have left entirely.
