Re: Is Canadian Broadcasting Entering Its Final Act?

Here's what resonates with me...it's clear the Feds will further relax foreign ownership on media companies to keep the cash flowing....Bell, Rogers, Shaw/Corus are thinking about more ways to 'work together' more easily - this means more media consolidation and even fewer jobs...this points to the further 'weaponization' of the message through traditional media portals...whether that be liberal, conservative, socialism, fascism, etc...I use Post Media as a prime example...their newspapers are currently 2/3 owned by a U.S asset management company with close ties to the GOP....do you think these guys give a rats ass about truth and facts?...the bottom line for them IS the bottom line....agenda, control, influence and shareholder profits with misinformation as part of its arsenal...
