Stop calling it a newspaper

3 comments
I am so fucking sick of large-scale media outlets glossing over the facts, substance and critical voice of my news stories in favour of advertisers and blurry-eyed readers/viewers.

What happened to the critical side of Canadian media? Is money really more important than knowing the truth?

Let's tone down the criticism in my voice. Let's edit out the truth. Let's cut out the parts that hold the powerful accountable. Let's over-simplify the facts. Let's create a forum that favours society's greedy fuckers. Let's not talk about racism, because clearly it has vanished from the surface of Nova Scotia.

I'm just grateful to have a forum like The Coast, because anywhere else I might as well ask for my name to be removed from the by-line.
