When I was a child, I used to love to make my dad’s lunch. He was a logger. I would line his lunchbox with a paper towel and write a message on it. “I love you”, “have a great day”. I would make him a couple of sandwiches, wrapped neatly in wax paper. His . . . → Read More: Some of the Things I learned at Home.
You have to know what a joke you really are?
Far be it from me, a lowly consumer of all kinds of news, to tell you how wrong you are- on just about everything. (And, apparently fake. )
But lets concentrate on the current Sun News poster child for wrong, Ezra Levant. Same dude who ran his own creation, the Western Standard into the dumper. Currently the WS publishes online only, every two weeks. It has also lost the whole conservative schtick, and looks to be more Libertarian. (contrarian)
But back to the guy who was censured for blatant racism (even on your network) and has been caught just being a complete waste of skin on oh so many occasions. His defense of racism in the name of "free speech" has never failed to amuse or elicit eyerolling from all of us in the Batcave.
Anyone recall what EL said in from of a US committee on civil liberties? You will find it here, careful wading in however, as no detergent will get all that hypocrisy tinged bullshit out of your clothes.
How about making fun of a man who has just passed, while so many were in a state of shock and grief? And then on the anniversary of Layton's death, Ezra and that other nitwit Michael Coren, just sat and behaved like a couple beer guzzling hyenas. Shameful stuff.
Ezra was invited last year to speak in a small community in BC, and that was cancelled. The organization that did the invitin' is also on life support and everyone I have spoken to about it was outraged. One of the organizations volunteers were even heard distancing themselves from the "Provacatalks" and their own magazine in a phone conversation I had with her. Heh. Sleeping with idiots, will give you a bad case of stoopid. And unsold memberships apparently.
Ethical Oil. Oh yes. How to spin one of the biggest disaters on the planet to make it sound good. Some bought it. Most know it for what it is.
The latest spittle filled rant against Justin Trudeau where Ezra unloaded his Trudeau derangement syndrome was just another day for you, wasn't it? Ho hum.
Ezra thinks he is being "provocative". Other people just think he is an asshat. For being an asshat's sake.
It is more about attention isn't it? I mean, Sun News is not taken seriously by anyone who actually follows politics and understands them. Sun News is sort of like the class clown, but a mean stupid one. There is no cleverness or edginess.
But at Sun News, you do appeal to the lowest common denominator.
And this, is the part that truly bothers me. You attract some souls who find it easier to hate and believe the lies than to think for themselves after looking at things from different angles. You legitimize hate. You dilute what is truly important for Canadians with whatever you decide is the "outrage" of the day. Your "hosts" have nothing but complete contempt for anyone who is struggling in this economy and you are on your knees performing service to the rich and the powerful.
And that I guess is the whole drive.
One only has to look at the comments sections on your online "articles" to know that it is far worse than the youtube comment sections. That, is not an easy feat. Virtual crayon scrawled screeds against morals and decency are just an average day at Sun News. And TRUDEAU!
Why do Sun News and Quebecor hate Canada- and Canadians so much? So much that you want to mold us into a subsidiary of the United states?
Money. Greed, and a complete disregard for anything that resembles truth. And no matter what you say about the "free market"? There you are, corporate welfare bums with your hat out anyway.
I wish all politicians and advertisers would stop cavorting with Sun News. It is hurting us all in so many ways. We have no need for FOX news, and I always wish that the rest of the media would stop and use the gifts they are given to actually work for the betterment of us all.
PS. Fox News fans are the least informed about news in the US. The Daily show and Colbert do a better job.
