Asymmetry strikes PEI

In an action reminiscent of the 1998 budget cuts, PEI will soon be the only province without its own all-local 90-minute TV newscast, the Guardian reports.

    They’ve got a bridge and canned pop. What more do they want? Shot from the rush hour cameras in Charlottetown? News-from-away and the fishing forecast?

    Better if they filmed in one of the local “Pubs” as the hidden boozers were called off-island

    Sorry, I thought we were talking about Radio. I’ll read the link first next time.

    But even the 90 minute TV “newscasts” will hardly be that, either. I’m betting less than half the content will be current affairs.

    90 minute newscast? NO region has a 90 minute newscast. They ALL have blah-blah morning and afternoon shows, but nothing resembling a newscast. CBC Radio doesn’t even have a one hour newscast nationally.
