I live outside Ottawa and the media compared to that in Toronto is absolutely stupid.  A bunch of morons.  A couple of weeks ago, an Ottawa Sun writer, not sure who it was gave a top 5 list as to why the Senators will make the playoffs.  Sure, Ottawa has done better than a lot expected, but for them to make the playoffs, I ruptured my spleen laughing so hard.  They said the reasons were Alfreddson, Craig Anderson, their coach and I forget the other 2 reasons, I guess they weren't important.  No.  Ottawa will not make the playoffs.  There are too many better teams ahead of them. 

While you guys deal with obnoxious idiots, I have to deal with stupid idiots.

The media in Toronto are an embarrassment.  Both the Sun and
the Star. Between the constant garbage that comes out of
SunMediaCor and the whiny tirades back and forth with Rob Ford.

in the Star....as much as I hate Rob Ford, their editor is
going out of their way to post insanely irrelevant photos and captions on every single Ford story.
 
Someone needs to hold the media accountable for becoming a bunch of arrogant blowhards.


It's insane how far it's moved from a source of news reporting to tabloid garbage - and this is in regards to
pretty much everything outside of maybe Christopher Hume and Carol Goar.


Someone once said that "the media does not report the news the way it should be reported, but rather, to sell papers".

If I was a Leafs media person, I would ask Chara a question that as a Leaf fan we need an answer.  Chara, what was going through your mind as Lupul was scoring a PP goal while you were sitting in the penalty box?

Media on the media - HNIC nitwits

http://www.theprovince.com/sports/Jack+Todd+HNIC+real+channel+changers/8340937/story.html

The issue with that article is Jack Todd is fairly bias himself.

Will Ferrell's doing a media circuit as Ron Burgundy, so... yes and no, depending on what you're referring to.
Got an idea on improving the forum?
