I would take a wild guess and say that all of this is a function of the 24-hour news channel, a phenomenon which is more bad than good, in my opinion.

News simply does not happen on demand. News by definition is what is happening, and sometimes a lot of shit happens, and sometimes it doesn't. If you are running a news service 24-7, you have voids to fill.

No wonder the result is fearmongering and tripe.

Hey, at least you're honest.

I'm old fashioned - I read the newspaper and sometimes I turn on CBC radio.
