On the left, we often bemoan the media — and for good reason. The media defines the national debate, shaping the political conversation. And establishing the frame in which Canadians view the issues of the day. The voice of the left is often left out or barely given airtime I. The world of corporate owned newspapers, radio stations, and television news.

We’re joined by columnist and political commentator Tom Parkin to discuss the state of media in Canada, how left voices can make an impact, and if we can ever overcome the private equity owned Postmedia stranglehold on Canadian news and commentary.
