#83 Oh God, Fine, Let’s Talk About Israel
COMMONS hosts Vicky and Supriya join Jesse to talk about an MP publicly shaming a comedian, Canadian Press's flawed story on extremist literature in Mosques, and yes... Israel.

We delve reluctantly into a discussion about Israel and the Canadian media after Postmedia pulled down an editorial about BDS and the Green Party.

Canadian Press published a shitty story about extremist literature in Canadian Mosques, based solely on a flawed, self-published study. Read VICE’s takedown of that piece here.

And is it okay for an MP to shame a comedian for an offensive joke?
