POSTED IN MEDIA...

August 16, 2005

CBC on strike? Meh.

I should care that the CBC is on strike, particularly since Newsworld is my breakfast viewing of choice. But surprisingly, it's been real easy to replace MotherCorp with a variety of information sources, mostly Internet based. I'd bet the rest of Canada feels about the same way, though you'd never know it from the insular over-analyzing going on at rival media outlets.

But that says something about the decline of the CBC over the past few years. Frankly, their radio is getting a little too over-earnest and faux-hip for me (insert DNTO rant here), and the main television station was always a bit of a write-off. Newsworld was consistently decent, but now that they're stacking the deck with old Passionate Eye reruns, I can hardly complain.

Hey - lay off the DNTO. Sorry old man if you can't handle a little 'fun'. Well, I'm glad you didn't take a stripe at the vinyl cafe - because that show really rocks!

Fun I can handle, and the Radio Show with Jack Farr could dole it out in spades. Faux-hip drivel with Sook Yin Lee...no thanks. And don't even get me started with Stuart Maclean...:)
