Inquiring minds would like to know, where do you consume your news? While I assume a lot of Canadians don't even watch the news unless there is a major event; I also assume that if you are visiting politically themed websites during a slow news cycle, you care about what's going on all the time. Do you still read newspapers? Are the internets rendering print journalism obsolete? As you may know I am planning to write a book about the CBC, and I would like to get a clearer picture of where you go for news.
Personally I spend a lot of time watching CBC Newsworld, but it's not something I enjoy. It is almost as though I willingly subject myself to cruel and unusual punishment in order to monitor our billion dollar baby. But I have a higher pain tolerance than most people. I remember once when I was 4 years old playing at a park a block away from my home. My sister was babysitting and I had snuck out of the house, so I was alone and unsupervised. I jumped off some monkey bars and broke my ankle. Fearing I'd get in trouble if caught sneaking out, I walked home. When I got home, I pretended to be okay, as if nothing had happened.
Thank you Jen for the fantastic suggestion! To anyone who would like to send me tips or suggestions for my CBC book, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment below.
