These changes may be due to recent amalgamations of Canadians media. CityTV and its associated networks and stations were bought out by CTV, which was
in turn bought out by Rogers. Ever since the buyouts, all of the associated channels have acquired a much more professional (read: American)
appearance. CityTV used to be the dumpiest looking news show, they went for the 'reality' angle and usually filmed news reports from the newsroom
itself. Now they have a somewhat professional set-up that makes it feel much more homogenous.
I've been wondering about newspapers. The Toronto Sun has always been a disgusting rag that will put a little girl's year-old murder on the front
page instead of the new North American Perimeter. The Sun has always been the worst kind of paper, but it seems that ever since Mayor Ford was elected
it's become insufferably arrogant. Maybe it is the elitist in me, maybe it is the liberal in me, maybe it is the civilized human being
in me, but I find their editorials and their news articles to be increasingly vile, and I cannot believe that these views exist in the Canada that I
live in. The National Post is somehow worse; the last page of their news section, two days ago, was a full-page excerpt from Sarah Palin's new
book with absolutely no commentary.
Have Canadians always been as insane as the newspapers now reveal them to be?
