Newspaper falsely suggestive

I was arrested the same night for drug possession as my dealer was for multiple drug offences including possession for the purpose of trafficking. In the newspaper the article was written in such a way that suggested I was involved with the investigation and trafficking. Is this against my Charter rights?
