“Why is PM Harper letting a pro-Israel think tank organize a press conference for him?” Twitters Canadianmags. The tweet links to David Akin’s blog post about Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s conference call, from Jamaica, “organized by the Washington-based advocacy group The Israel Project … which decided which reporters to invite in on the call.”
Most Canadian reporters were — according to Akin’s investigation — not invited.
Is this another example (also here, here, and here, etc., etc., etc…) of Harper’s relentless control of media and public information? Or does the controversial outside organizer put another twist on it?
