What about all the other stories that are altered? Why focus on the police exclusively?

if you listen to the entire 45 minute canadaland piece - as I did - they suggest David black might have disliked the piece because he is trying to develop a refinery in kitimat. And these protesters were disapproving of a gas pipeline.

Yeah, sure. Manak was going to construct an elaborate system that would block Black Press from seeing its public press releases (they no longer hold pressers, they release content straight to the public).

A handful of times per year they’ll have a mass media invite for a major story, but it’s ultra rare. I know because I receive each invite. Nobody will be kept from that sort of a media environment.

And Black Press doesn’t do interviews so what’s the problem?

the article was changed 6 days later. so it’s unclear if the police had serious issues with it until the chance meeting at the hockey game.

original article feb 1
Hockey game feb 3
New article feb 7

if you know anything about online media the first version will have 5 or 10x more views than the revised version.

The bigger question is which version was “printed.”

why does the VicNews even spend the time to rewrite the press releases?

Why not just come up with the headline and say “VicPD says this”:

And just post the press release? Seems easier than rearranging words.
