"If they were real journalists they'd be ashamed to claim under-siege status."

Dr. Jordan B. Peterson called out Carleton University's School of Journalism on Friday night for hosting a panel featuring legacy media journalists who claim they have survived the "siege" of Ottawa.

"If they were real journalists, they'd be ashamed to claim under-siege status. What a disgrace," Peterson tweeted. He replied to a piece by True North, which discusses the panel.


Set to take place on March 8, "Journalism Under Siege" is "one of the first public events to reflect on the role of the media during the unprecedented occupation of downtown Ottawa."

The panel will feature legacy-media figures, including CTV News's Glen McGregor and left-wing journalist Justin Ling. The former vocally disliked his experience in Ottawa, as the Freedom Convoy organizers would often not allow him to attend their press conferences. Instead, only independent media was given coverage, while McGregor would be blocked from entering the room.

Other panellists include CBC's Judy Trinh and Jorge Barrera, the Toronto Star's Raisa Patel and photographer Justin Tang. Journalism associate professor and CBC News anchor Adrian Harewood will be moderating the panel.
