Don Newman,Take Note of Lindsay Blackett, Canadian TV is Crap!

Lindsay Blacklett, Alberta Minister of Culture says it like it is.
"I sit here as a government representative for film and television in the province of Alberta and I look at what we produce, and if we're honest with ourselves … I look at it and say, 'Why do I produce so much shit? Why do I fund so much crap?'" Blackett told the panel, to ripples of laughter.
I bet Don Newman strongly disagrees with Mr. Blackett. Canadian TV IS crap! Especially CBC pushing the left wing agenda. Why do you think Canadians turn to American television and the internet for news and entertainment?
Don Newman yesterday on P&P tried defend why we still need "crap" on our Canadian TV and not something of quality like Kory Teneycke of Quecbor is spearheading, a new kind of media,Suntvnews. A new news source that will bring balance and patriotism. Something that will engage the public and not be boring like our current media. Finally something I'm sure Canadians will turn to and not the CRAP we have now.

More from Dave Rutherford about this on the 9:00am segment of his show today.

I don't often agree with many ministers in the Stelmach government but Minister Lindsay Blackett should be commended for stating the obvious. Go Lindsay!

Update: Dave Rutherford speaks to Minister Blackett himself on the above statement he made. Stands by it except for maybe using the "S" word. Listen at about the 10:40 am mark after Stockwell Day on the Air India Inqiry Report. Dave also talks to Chris Waddel and Kory right after the 10:00 am news about Suntvnews.
