Your canine crusader is not surprised to learn that the huge, multinational, tax dodging, political lobby group Greenpeace does not allow the facts to get in the way of its worldview and fund raising efforts.

Canada’s media ombudsman recently found Greenpeace was misleading the public. The political activist group had used photos of a devastated forest, insinuating that the damage was done by Canadian paper company Resolute, when in fact the forest had been destroyed by fire. This is not the first time the multinational fund raiser has used photos to mislead people. It has been caught twice using photos that it claimed were proof of coal-induced damage to the Great Barrier Reef – when the photos actually came from another location. The Hound asks: Can we trust Greenpeace? Answer: No!
