"Media Matters" for ...Canada?
is it just me, or has anybody else noticed there is no 'Media Matters' for Canadian media?
seriously: with the launch of "Fox News North" rolling over the horizon like highlight reel from 2012 or "folks, that ain't 3D" The Last Airbender, Canadians are about to be introduced to a whole new level of BS 'truthiness' for Public opinion making.
(an inquiring mind asks the in-house film wonks:
...was 2012 the first major film to plant a product placement as its final dialogue line?)
it would seem that we're really ramping up to get screwed, & there doesn't seem to be anybody on the horizon who is seeking funding to create much-needed a fact-checking & hate-speech exposing agency for Canadian content.
we really aren't going to rely on a US agency that focuses on 'The American Experience' to scour the BS from our Canadian media, are we?
Fending off the well-trained onslaught of Fox-honed propaganda isn't something that can be done ad hoc or a half-assed manner... these folks have serious skills.
hell, even TVO is giving Mike Harris a full week's PR session on Paikin's The Agenda this week...
