Global News Kills Koch Brothers Story, Fires Journalist
Bruce Livesey says he was fired for talking to CANADALAND

Veteran investigative reporter Bruce Livesey was fired by Global News shortly after talking to CANADALAND about the fact that management had pulled his documentary, The Koch Connection, from their broadcast schedule.

As CANADALAND reported in February, Livesey’s documentary about the billionaire Koch Brothers and their ties to Canada was set for broadcast on Global News’ 16×9 investigative newsmagazine, only to be pulled from the broadcast schedule and scrubbed from Global’s website shortly before it was set to air.
