Episode 52: Exactly When Did That Happen?
Play Now!You can tell things are not well on television news. It, well, sucks like it has never sucked before. The quality? Gone. One viewing should inform, yet people continue to watch. In this, Episode 52: Exactly When Did That Happen?, I briefly run down the major changes over the last 40 years that might have causally led to Telly News' demise.This episode features an observation Jeffry Dvorkin, former head of news for both the CBC and NPR, made in an interview he did on Canadaland's episode 39, first released on June 30, 2014. I play music from Graham Bole, first "Origami" then "Kirigami." George Hrab voices the "great" in the stinger, and Jan Wong introduces the episode with KMFDM.
