Spinking about Nieuw Braunschweig Blogging

In comments on Spinkaboutit's January 6th post "Seems Ivan Court was on to something about bias at the Telegraph Journal

In response to Babar - "New Brunswick blogosphere, RIP."

If the potential demise of one Irving blogger rings the death knell of blogging in Nieuw Braunschweig then it wasn't exactly very vibrant to begin with (in your estimation) - was it?

While the post-election collapse of partisan blogging in NB is indeed remarkable, the overall number of political NB bloggers whom you can't pin a party color upon has been steadily growing over the last few years.

However, as the world's economy continues to crumble and the Bermudans forge ahead with reducing pesky things like pensions for their traditional propagandists, I suspect you'll see more fresh-faced shill internet rapporteurs pop online to give you their folksy spin on the 'news' of the day.

Post-Post-9/11 media on The Bruce Report

In response to:
When comedy is not funny
Alec Bruce - The Bruce Report
February 4th, 2009
Contrary to popular belief, Canada’s biggest export to the United States is not oil, or steel, or even softwood; it’s comedy writers who appreciate, better than most, the richly ironic nature of American politics.

And so, the Canucks who work for The Daily Show and The Colbert Report must be observing the Congressional $819-billion stimulus package, which seeks to raise trade barriers against the Great White North, with a gathering sense of mordant amusement.

For his part, Barack Obama also gets the joke and, fortunately for we denizens of the Great White North, finds it about as funny as a heart attack.

While the Russians threaten to give us our own Afghanistan, the banks are printing paper to the sky - someone is going to have to pay for the post-9/11 thievery.

Speaking of which - how come the media can talk at ends about the effects of 9/11, but to talk about anything before then is verboten / engaging in UFO conspiracy theory?
