I’m going to start lying now … because the CRTC says I can
In effect, what is says is that the CRTC will now allow our media companies and broadcasters to lie to the general public, assuming that no one gets hurt in the process.
They are lowering their standards when standards don’t need to be lowered. Did you call the CRTC and ask for permission to lie to the public? How about your friends and family members? Did they request more lies with their vitriol?
September 1, 2011 will be a sad day for the Canadian public as this will be the intended day for implementing these new ‘dumbing down’ rules.
It’s crap like this that makes most Canadians believe that the CRTC should be scrapped. It’s nothing but a Con and large media mouth piece.
