So, 98% of British Columbians don't play along with Live Like North Korea Hour despite its relentless hyping by the so-called "mainstream media".
In Alberta, its the proverbial lead balloon. Again.
While, here in Burnaby, out of about 300,000 people, the same "almost 200" (wow!) who don't like pipelines, get top of the news coverage from the local "MSM" of their every utterance and stunt.
Time and again I notice something, and I know I'm not alone. The so-called "mainstream media" really aren't mainstream at all, are they?
I mean, come on, the numbers would dictate (demonstrated public interest = sponsors. And the reverse is true) that Gaia Worshipers' Self-Flagellation Hour should have merited no more than a passing mention at most, not the in your face biggest-damn-thing-imaginable treatment it and its associated week, day, fortnight etc. recieve from the soi-disant "mainstream" media.
These fringe loony events are clearly not all that interesting or meaningful to the overwhelming preponderance of the populace (who have their heads screwed on straight. Well, straighter at least.)
Ninety-eight percent of British Columbians gave Lets Live Medieval Hour a pass.
So, what wasn't covered by the "MSM" while they were giving Maurice Strong Hour (I got a million of 'em) coverage worthy of a manned landing on Mars? That meets a welcoming committee.
And when it comes to pipeline expansion, the story is clearly that Burnaby is fine with it.
300,000 to 200.
You know, someone's going to have to come up with a better handle, just the right handle, for this bunch as they dodder off to the trash can of history. Twitter might be just the medium, you know #NewNameForMainstreamMedia sort of thing.
Hmmmmm, let's see, Dinomedia? Sunset Media? Progprop Media? Last Century Media? That's a bit long. Nicely descriptive, though ... Flushing Themselves Media ... Huh? Oh, right, sorry. Anyway,
Let me nutshell this, its about perspective. Take another look at that pic up top.
Yeah, so, its a pic of Roger Daltrey, right?
You see Roger Daltrey.
Not some damn fringe.
... Fringe Media?
