PressProgress calls itself “Canada’s most shared source for progressive news and information.” They get real scoops, using the traditional tools of journalism, like access to information requests, fact-checking and seeking comment from politicians.
But they’re not a traditional news source. They’re backed by the Broadbent Institute, a progressive think tank founded by a former leader of the NDP. So how does that affect their coverage and what should we do with that information?
PressProgress editor Luke LeBrun and producer/staff writer Luke Savage join us.
*Correction: An earlier version of this episode stated that Stephen Harper said the root cause of terrorism is terrorists. It was in fact Conservative MP Pierre Poilievre. We regret the error.
