The only time I every watch a 24 hour "news" network is via the Daily Show with John Stewart. For anybody that can read, the Internet is a much better source of news. Dito, perhaps even more so, for the weather network. And yet Canadian cable and satellite subscribers are forced to fork over their hard earned dollars to these useless services because they have mandatory carriage imposed by the CRTC.
It is time to end this nonsense.
