Wow, it’s been almost a month since my last entry. Not that I’ve been too busy to write, or that nothing worthy of comment has transpired. I’ve just been too mentally preoccupied to ruminate on the state of things of late. I’m battling a particularly nasty case of career funk. Three years of babysitting the same clients day in and day out has taken its toll. I’m ready for a change, but to what?

As for the news, I see Al Gore is finally getting his cable channel after all. According to him, "This is not going to be a liberal network, a Democratic network or a political network.” Frankly, I find that hard to believe. No, I don’t find that statement laughable solely because increasingly politically radical Al will serve as the new Chairman of the Board of NewsWorld International. It’s because the channel’s programming content is produced by none other than the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, arguably the most liberal major media operation in North America.

Although most Americans are unfamiliar with Canada’s largest broadcaster (which, incidently, is owned entirely by the federal government), they are not unaccustomed to witnessing biased reporting antics, which the network employs with unrelenting vigor. Having grown up watching the CBC, I can attest to the network’s abiding condemnation of conservative ideals and glowing admiration for socialist virtues, all while donning the façade of balanced journalism. I’m sure once Americans get a taste of Gore TV and its Canadian taxpayer subsidized programming, they’ll quickly lump it in with such fine bastions of liberal tripe as Minnesota Public Radio, the Village Voice, and anything on PBS featuring Bill Moyers.
