Jesse Hirsh on Rick Mercer

“Contrast this with our primary political satirist, Rick Mercer, and you can see why the Harper government is able to be as arrogant and aloof as it has. Rather than really go after the political establishment, Mercer seems more interested in kissing their ass.” – comment by Jesse Hirsh in Canadian Democracy in Crisis: A Challenge […]

In Bizarro World, The CBC Is Ironically Still Called The CBC

Are you not familar with Bizarro world ?  Perhaps you should watch the clip I posted. We always complain about ‘the usuals’  at the CBC.  The offenders of boring shows that rely on American B-list celebrities or the no-talent hacks that make it on the air and stay there, because the CBC is like a girlfriend that […]

Rick also gave a shoutout to Posterchild’s pasteup homage, as well as its inevitable decline. He didn’t, however, talk […]

Making mincemeat out of Mercer

Every morning the CBC press clippers wake up very early and read all the newspapers and magazines in Canada. English and French. They carefully clip every article that mentions the CBC and self-publish the results […]

"They should not be fired"
