    I’d wondered what had happened to Basem Boshra. He’s been gone for some time, at least in column form. But he disappeared before, only later revealed as paternity leave. Nothing like people disappearing without a notice. He wasn’t with the column long.

    I supported ricochet. I had never head of it before that how-low-can-he-go columnist got a burr under his saddle about their satire. Go Satire! (I know they are not principally about satire, but they ARE about fighting the good fight.)

    The Canadian Broadcast Standards Council came down against a Global News report that aired in Calgary and Edmonton about a “neighbour from hell” that it found went overboard with editing, using the kind of tricks you’d find in a political attack ad.

    Amazing how low so much of the traditional media has sunk. Anything to make a buck.

    The New York Times has released a report about its strategy going forward. Among the report’s recommendations are more emphasis on visual storytelling, and fewer copy editors.

    So instead of actual hard news reporting they’ll just tell a bullshit narrative with silly pictures? I was browsing a NY Times the other day – in A section I come across a half-page sized picture of Bill Maher with some text about his opinions on things. That should have been in the F for fluff section. As if anyone actually cares what that guy thinks. This is how they view the population. It’s not for nothing that Trump won. People have had enough of traditional media and the traditional politicians whose asses they always kiss.

    The page has been turned. Next up is France where Le Pen will cruise to a comfortable win.

      No. The report doesn’t say anything even close to this.
