Doug Ford’s government just launched its own news website and some people are not happy about it

How is this even allowed?

After only 100 days in office, Premier Doug Ford has just launched his very own news website.

‘Ontario News Now’ (ONN) is a news site to promote Ford’s own political agenda, and is written by the Ontario PC Caucus themselves. ONN is described as “where you can find all the latest updates on what the Ontario PC Caucus and our leadership is doing to help the people of Ontario.”

ONN went live this morning and was promoted over social media using a video of their own on-air host, Lyndsey Vanstone.

Apparently the content is intended to be a hub where viewers can find the latest stories, learn about the caucus, and watch live question periods at Queen’s Park.

As expected, many Toronto residents took to Twitter, calling the site “fake news” and wondering who would be funding ONN.
