If the only TV news you watched was on CTV, you could be forgiven for thinking that the big deal about the riots in England is how they might affect tourism during the Olympics.
Yes, yes I think you could. Also you might find yourself magically in possession of the opinion that there is ABSOLUTELY NO LARGER CONTEXT FOR ANY OF THIS, it is purely and simply a ZOMBIE PLAGUE TRANSMITTED AMONG THE GENETICALLY-CRIMINAL POPULATION, and that the really, really, REALLY overwhelming question about ALL of it…
(Barring the stuff about the Olympics of course)
…Is what its implications for social media are.
How will it affect Twitter.
That sort of thing.
Pardon me while I go throw up. In the meantime, here are some views that contrast sharply with those of the CTV mass-mind…(and I could find you more, many more)…even if they do not really answer the question everyone is asking, the question that mystifies everyone, the question that mystifies no one.
What’s going on?
But if the only news you got was from CTV, you might not even recognize it as a question.
And this disturbs me.
Good luck to all our friends in the UK, and indeed around the world.
