Do you remember those rumours about the government bailing out the private media sector? No one confirmed or denied them, which told us that it was up for consideration.
Well, lookie here.
Ottawa has a new option on the table for helping local TV stations make it through the recession: buy more government ads.
They have a plan all right. It's all about promoting their agenda under the guise of innocent government advertising. Are you kidding me?
To begin with, I'm quite certain that I've never heard as much government advertising as it is now, though no one seems interested in exploring that expense. Secondly, can you explain to me how throwing money at an industry that needs to seriously restructure, is going to even remotely help them solve their larger issues?
Oh, forget it. I'm not even going to try to explore the rational here. This is nothing more than a disgusting move to increase advertising dollars for the Conservative Party of Canada. Anyone who thinks otherwise needs serious help.
This makes In and Out look like child's play, doesn't it?
