People, I guess by now you’ve heard that the prime minister wants to take over and run the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.
Who’d a thunk it. Little Stevie Harper wants to get into showbiz.
Well, why not? Here you’ve got this television and radio network paid for by the taxpayers of the country, and sometimes they do stuff that isn’t really favourable to Stevie and his government.
I can dig it. Why not just take over the sucker, and have done with it.
It’s just a small detail that the CBC would stop being a “public broadcaster,” and become a “state broadcaster,” the favourite tool of Kim Jong Il and every other two bit dictator you can dredge up.
And most Canadians wouldn’t give a hoot anyways.
It’s all about control, do ya see? That’s the important thing, control, and the tighter the better.
