Take A Memo

Does anyone else think that Evan Solomon is the John (Take A Memo) King of Canada? Power and Politics is now the he said/he said show, with Solomon acting as a "neutral" questioner (that is treating all issues as if they are merely differences of opinion). The whole "nobody's right" school, allows issues such as torture and climate change to become merely debating society fodder, rather than stories to be gotten to the bottom off. The reason CNN has become unwatchable is slowly, but surely, making its way to CBC News.

Update: Or as one of the characters from Better Off Ted put it last night, "Facts are just opinions and opinions can be wrong". That, in a nutshell is where Evan Solomon is taking Power and Politics.

  1. Used to know a guy in Grad School who, in the midst of debates, used to say things like: "In my opinion the facts don't matter." Sad thing is, he became a historian!
