Warning
The quality of this video varies due to older technologies and image degradation.

This video analyzes the role played by the media during the October Crisis. Was there misinformation, censorship, falsification? Several prominent figures in Québec media try to answer these questions. Going beyond the boundaries of a conventional report, the author's opinion is clear: to what extent did the federal and provincial governments use the media  to induce panic in the population by making people believe in the danger of a truly armed insurrection?
