A potpourri of off-topics.

Rather ironic when the biggest news at Global is Steve Darling's leaving, yet there is no news about the actual circumstances. so unless we know why, maybe it isn't really about whether his legs were shaved. i thought he was great,and will miss him, but who knows what goes on behind the scenes?

By the time I see the news I've already read it hours ago.
If you're really savvy with the internet, you can often read the news before it even happens.
Is the world getting stupider, or is it just getting easier for stupid people to have their thoughts heard?

Sometimes even days before.

And Steve is going to run for the Liberal party in Burnaby. Announced a couple of hours ago.

^^Name recognition will get some votes!

And so much for 'unbiased news reporting'.....
Why do people who fancy themselves "fiscal conservatives" not scream at hidden debt accumulated in the past dozen years? Or, do they only object to spending on social programs?

After watching the Woman doing the noon news on Global today they really never should have let Steve go.

What a boring excuse of a newscaster! Just about put us to sleep. :135:

I think it's Samantha Falk. Someone needs to stick a pin in her to get some kind of a reaction out of her.
She's on today so I switched to CTV.

Here is many of personalities on BC Global

Barry in the sports department would be a better fit as a jazz dj. His voice would put anyone to sleep.

Global...5 minutes news, 7 minutes weather, 7 minutes traffic, 3 minutes couch babbling, 7 minutes cooking show ( weekends anyway) repeat... with a ton of adverts to break it all up.
CBC news network if you want news or BBC world.

The only good part about Global is the local news.
