The world has seen a massive resurgence of the far right in the last few years, both in terms of influence over, or outright control of, right-wing institutions, as well as the emergence of new hate groups. The Overton window has also shifted considerably rightward, and publications eager to tap into that audience — Rebel Media, Quillette, Breitbart, etc. — have been rewarded.

Mainstream, supposedly respectable, publications in Canada are taking advantage of this shift as well.

On Aug. 12, Canadaland published an investigation by Sean Craig exposing Postmedia's plan to shape their newspapers' coverage in an "unprecedented, centralized fashion" in the leadup to the federal election.
