Christo Aivalis - October 18, 2019

Yesterday, Keean Bexte of Rebel Media followed teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg back to her hotel to bombard her with questions without her consent to an interview. This was billed by Bexte and the Rebel as a fantastic piece of investigative journalism, but it reeked of a 'gotcha' effort, and it came off as creepy more than anything else It also shows us why politicians like NDP leader Jagmeet Singh were right not to take questions from sources like Bexte and the Rebel: because if this is how they conduct themselves, they should not be legitimized as a proper news source.
