Local TV Must be Saved So It Can Be Destroyed

Posted on Mon, Oct 19, 2009 at 10:56 AM

Local TV hates cable, cable hates local TV, that's what I get from all these ads running from both sides on every channel around here. I go to Ottawa for a week, and it's all over radio too. No canadian can escape it. When I saw an ad today featuring a certain musician with a broken Taylor guitar, that was it. Whatever side ends up being right, in the end, we're gonna pay more anyways because these two sides blew a shitload of advertising dollars. I wouldn't be surprised if the ad time cost more than the legislation change would have cost either side. The money is really flowing to the ad agencies, my money at that.

Tell you both what. Either get off my TV with your fussing and feuding and actually bug the CRTC yourself, or run ads that simply say,

FUCK YOU CABLE!
FUCK YOU LOCAL TV!
ETC! for 30 seconds. Message across, much less money wasted. Guaranteed the CRTC will take action much sooner too if option B is picked.
