Re: Mars Attacks !

Sorry. Wrong Math. 400k is less than 1% of CRTC's around 50mil budget.

Not UBB related, but can't pass off this:

"CTV host allegedly tells boss to f--- himself"

>Don Martin, the host of Power Play, a political talk show on CTV News Channel, was not on-air Friday as CTV officials spent the day trying to determine what Martin may or not may have said about George Cope, chief executive officer of Bell, the conglomerate that owns CTV.

>At the party, held at a restaurant a block from Parliament Hill, Martin is alleged to have engaged in a verbal altercation with Dimitri Soudas, the former director of communications for Prime Minister Stephen Harper and now the executive director for communications for the Canadian Olympic Committee. During the course of that altercation, Martin is alleged to have told Soudas that he and Cope could Go f--- yourselves.

Brilliant career ending move!

Did Martin also say anything like "Bite Me !" ?

If he hasn't been drinking, he could really use half a dozen bottles now.

Hopefully, the water is now safe to drink.

It would be an opportunity for Bell/BCE to confirm they have no editorial control over its media empire by stating that they will not fire the guy because he criticised the CEO of a large corporation.

But because he's in a way a public figure on television, they can still fire him for inappropriate behaviour that damaged the network's image and reputation.

When you're on TV, you're pretty much on the clock 24 hours a day.

He might not be jobless, but certainly would be "encouraged" to go. He might find some trouble with certain political party members or the Olympics for sure.

On the other hand, he might get some sympathy in the "99%" crowd. May be he can find work at Faux News North TV or other non-main stream network or trash talk shows?
