Trying to calm pre-game jitters, I remember that SunTV, the conservative voice of "balance" up here, is currently waiting to see if the government will subsidize it so that it can be seen by people too poor to afford cable or satellite or even a TV at all, really.

If they succeed, rejoice that the onward march of Ayn Rand Influence will be quickstepped. As Heather Mallick reports in the Toronto Star, one of the on-air presenters has "orange wings growing out of his head."

Hang on ... lemme understand...

A TV Station that provides the conservative voice of balance is waiting for government subsidies. And this is good because it will help the influence of Ayn Rand - someone who was categorically against government subsidy of private enterprise - spread more quickly.

I just want to make sure I understand that correctly.

Yup, you do except for the good part which is of course subjective. Especially to the Sun owners, who are stressing their 100% Canadian content (ie 99% Sun staffers and 1% Americans they don't have to pay), and their community importance (nil except for the sports pages).

SunTV started out boldly with "we built this" and "they will come", but they didn't and they are ignored by viewers in favour of the two top channels, private CTV and public CBC. Even the rightest wingers quickly noticed that Canadian newsreaders quoting American pundits and trying to adapt American situations to Canadian ones, is something they could do themselves at no cost, or let Charles Adler on the radio do it for them.

It is win-win for Sun anyway. If the CRTC turns them down they can scream that despotic Canada is determined to silence all dissenting voices. If they get approved, Pelardeau can still write them off to tax advantage. The usual nobody will still watch them either way.

Good grief!

The alleged "conservative" station should be driven up into the frozen northern tundra to die with old "Eskimos" on ice bergs!

We know there are plenty of open ice bergs because the scam of Polar Bears hanging by their claws on ice bergs has been exposed as a photo shopped fraud.

Dear brother Adam

It has come to our attention that WHAT THE FREAK ARE YOU DOIN? On the first playoff night? Did you think we wouldn't notice?

Layoff the polar bears OK? Or we will photoshop you at your last Seminar and with Old Man MacAloon when he just came in from the woods plus both the twins.

Jeez.
