Rarely do you turn to an American news station and hear about the latest feel good story.

Its always the latest rape, murder, robbery, shooting, car chase, etc.

When you tune to a Canadian news station you hear about old Betty down the road who just turned 112 or how the local elementary school is fund raising to help out their teacher who was just diagnosed with cancer.

Canadian news is sometimes comforting, American news is a scare tactic to keep everyone on their toes.

The CBC Fifth Estate (Lyndon MacIntyre, Terrence McKenna et al.) is the "New" 60 Minutes. I LMAO at Anne Coulter-bot when interviewed by LM... boy-howdy was She out-gunned... Canada participated in Viet Nam? Yes, young lady that is an interesting history that never occurred... national TV too... Oh my! LMAO...

I don't know, CBC news is usually pretty grim viewing these days. CityTV however is another story and is a local channel. CBC Newsworld is allright. I like their documentaries they show(especially Holidays in the Danger Zone: Places that don't exist). When it comes to local news, Canadian news beats the American news that I've had the "pleasure" to come across while channel surfing. National News is fairly similiar, except ours is a bit less sensationalized.
