Unreal. @globalnewsto day before election, wastes air time on poll results. Hey, Ontarians we know the election results already, no need to inform you on the issues. 🙄🤬 Have to use Twitter to get informed. #onpoli #ONelxn #OHIP

To counter my complaint, @globalnewsto ran a decent piece on what disability advocates are looking for from the next govt and what leaders are pledging. Only NDP and Greens went on camera. Almost one-quarter Ontarians disabled yet #accessibility is crap. #onpoli #ONelxn @WeThe15Originally tweeted by Shireen Anne Jeejeebhoy (@ShireenJ) on June 1, 2022.

TV news broadcasters in Canada ought to do these kinds of interviews regularly so people realize #LongCovid is an actual thing. Listening to her having trouble breathing…I know what that’s like from #BrainInjury. @DFriesenGlobal @LisaLaFlammeCTV #cdnpoli #onpoli #OHIP #ONelxn

The only way to spend election night that the media decided on last month is read fiction.

Aside from @AnthonyFarnell and @ConsumerSOS, the rest of the @globalnewsto team stultified Ontarians with their poll-focused non-coverage of #OntarioElection, putting them to sleep and dissuading people from voting. Media hv a duty to inform. Polls & talking pts don’t. #onpoli

Brain injury grief is

extraordinary grief

research proves

needs healing.

Parties & MSM should have to work in dark of voter intentions during the writ period. @ElectionsON @ElectionsCan_E should ban all polling by media and parties during elxn. That way they’d have to focus on issues, dig into talking points, review govt. @globalnewsto failed #onpoli

I’m so disgusted. Before the #OntarioElection2022 , @globalnewsto did a decent job of reporting. During…it was like they’d gone into don’t upset apple cart, put Ontarians to sleep mode. Only place I got fully informed was Twitter. #onpoli #ONelxn #OntarioElection2022

When Ford went into hiding, they should’ve compared his govt action w his campaign promises. It wasn’t that hard. But I guess the rut of following leaders, reporting talking pts is hard to leave when a leader won’t answer questions. What’s the point of watching the news? #onpoli

As for the others @CBCNews and @CTVToronto they’re all the same. I stopped watching years ago after comparing election non-coverage with their latent racist bent. @globalnewsto used to do a decent job. Not anymore. 🤬#onpoli #ONelxn #OntarioElection
