I cant comment on those shows, as I do not watch TV..
But I am thinking,
If you want to be a journalist or reporter, Dont Piss off the PM..might be a good plan.
Sorry for any disrespect..

I just took a look and you're right. The headline and implication is not right at all. Good catch 60 :up:

I also have no TV and have not at this time even read any (so called) news.

This just looked like a fun way to get things going.

The only goal of media (local or otherwise) is to capture attention and generate communication.

While the local headlines lack intellectual creativity, they do capture attention. It appears the owners of the media outlets don't particularly care what kind of attention they garner so long as they are noticed.

If you are a good journalist you should be pissing some people off every now and then. Are you insinuating that reporters should only be nice and watch what they say around the PM?
The only thing a reporter should be concerned with is that what they are reporting is the truth.

It's all about click bait. Like this article with the headline "no way to treat a tourist" Because the thief should know or care if his victim is a tourist.

That being said, it worked, I clicked on it.

We are talking the Leader of our country, I guess some people respect nothing..
I did a couple stints as a Cadet in Camp Vernon.....nobody got away with disrespecting those in command..
Some of us grew up that way..SIR..

I don't care if it's the PM or Joe Schmo, as long as what is being reported is the truth.
I respect the position of PM, but not the pansy arsed fool that holds the position at the moment.

Respect if earned is given. There has been nothing produced by that pretty boy that deserves respect, therefore leader of the county or not, I will not give him that respect. You're cadet story is irrelevant.

So what would "earn" your respect? If he was Conservative would he "earn" your respect? If he put more money back in your pocket would that help "earn" it? I really do not get why people complain about politicians, like they care about you or the little guy. Liberal, con, NDP, doesn't matter... Hopefully your response doesn't include pretty boy or selfie, come with something original.
