Canadian news could use a little less truth

Conservative Party TV ad

My name's Dan. I'm busy, so I don't have time for my news to bog me down with facts.

The CRTC is proposing to ease the ban on broadcasting false or misleading news.

It just makes sense.

Look, I've got shopping to do, asses to kiss at work, office underlings to torture and humiliate -- I can't clutter my mind with confusing facts and figures.

Oh, you'll hear the moaners saying, "But we need to rely on our news outlets for reliable information so we can make informed decisions -- !"

Stop right there.

The only informed decision any Canadian needs to make is to vote Conservative in the next election.

Aside from that, get to the mall and keep this economy rolling!

I'm Dan Baird and these may not necessarily be my views.

Who gets to decide what is false or misleading? What if you disagree?

You are not permitted to disagree. In the words of a G20 cop, "This ain't Canada anymore."
