How worthless is Canadian broadcast news?
Every motherfucking newscast on every single motherfucking channel started with the Oh, wow! It is snowing! non-story.
Yeah, asshole, no shit. I can look out the window or go outside and I figure it all by myself. That’s not news.
That the federal Grits have been caught with their pants down didn’t really register at all. There is no excuse for it.
But then comes a long and rambling piece in Macleans that is very instructive to the mindset of Canadian journalism.
It finally gets around to talking about this piece of legislation that has already passed June 21, 2018.
It made no headlines, and now that SNC-Lavalin is in the hot seat, now everything thinks about it.
This should have been news long before it was made into law: as in, who lobbied for it, for starters.
But no one was really paying attention at the time because everyone was too busy tweaking Trump’s nose to see the bigger picture.
They were too busy defending the Prime Minister and helping him along with the optics instead of ignoring the optics and looking at what is actually happening.
Now, the damage is done. Stop telling bedtime stories to the Middle Class because that’s why they think everything will work out in the end by some They who will save the day.
And that’s why we have predatory laws and an entire provincial economies dependent on corrupt companies — and people howling when things implode.
You cannot bank on a House of Cards.
Now, things are out of hand.
Who the hell cares besides their parents? That is a cheap and easy no-brainer. (And memo to CBC: That’s not “news for kids”: this is press releases geared at children to help Corporate America sucker in the next generation of empty-heads. Shame on you for being so willfully deceptive).
Canada has serious problems all simmering and waiting to explode on cue. That’s more than obvious now, but there is one thing in the Maclean’s piece that is true:
No, this country doesn’t innovate. It willfully ignores innovators hoping not to rock the boat because everything is so rotten, one innovation can be compared the rest and then it all hits the fan.
Journalism cribs and steals, and then wonders why it implodes.
Stop picking political sides, for starters. They are all the same. Stop pretending being on the Left is more enlightened. The hell it is. People don’t believe in God they way they used to, and now the predators took a new mask to wear.
Radical centrism is the method of seeing the rot on the left and right, above and below, and it is way past time to stop pretending and playing along with those who cannot function unless they do harm to others as they take the spoils all to themselves…
