They've taken over in the States and they've done the same thing in Canada. In both countries our democracy is in peril due to the ascendancy of media giants pursuing corporatist agendas. The media that is supposed to serve the public as the watchdog of government instead betrays the public to become the government's lapdog.
The next government of Canada, be it NDP, Liberal or a coalition, must move to pry loose the chokehold that the corporate media has at our public's throat. We must break up these cartels and force divestiture if we're to have any hope of shoring up real democracy in Canada.
