Dismantle the CBC

the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation continues to annoy the hell out of me. Based in Toronto, the least Canadian of all canadian cities.

In the first place, there was no Doctor Who on this week. Well now, what the hell was the point in coming home to watch Doctor Who if it's not on? Why can't they air a repeat on like Saturday morning or something. Back when the CBC wasn't completely run by out of touch Toronto elitist socialists, they aired entertaining stuff on occasion and made an effort to appeal to a broad demographic. Not anymore.

Secondly, I read here at that the CBC won't be airing any CFL semi-final games in HDTV. Why? Because the precious Leafs play the day before and they only have one piece of equipment, and it's too precious to move all the way from freakin buffalo (where the the maple laughs will LOSE ANYWAYS) .. so two hours away and they cant lug the HDTV equipment to air something that will appeal to the rest of Canada because the CBC MUST air EVERY SINGLE LEAFS GAME on TV always in HDTV and nothing else.

Screw the CBC, they are inconsequential. They infuriate me frequently. They haven't produced television of any interest since Fred Penner's place, and I hated that show and word bird. Complete fools. Plus, you know what, It'd be nice to have the Friendly Giant on DVD. I'd buy that and I'm in my late twenties.
