Brainwashed Canadian reporter quits, whines

Here's a guy who needs to be deprogrammed. The man quits his job, then explains why. It's a rare look at the far, far left mind.

Here he talks about Fox News:
    Consider Fox News. What the Murdoch model demonstrated was that facts and truth could be replaced by ideology, with viewership and revenue going up. Simply put, you can tell less truth and make more money.
Fox is McNews, which is why I don't watch it much. That doesn't change the fact that it's less ideological than CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS, MSNBC, LA Times, NY Times, and 85% of all American media. Canadian media is even more ideologically shifted to the left. Our little reporter is far left, yet thinks his views are centrist. Any other view is radical and untrue to him. This is the key to the success of Fox News -- it is reaching an audience no other press outlet cares to acknowledge. It's not the flashy colors and the yelling.

He says he's "not a partisan operative", yet:
    we should be taxed according to our capacity and that revenue invested, sometimes massively, in projects for the public good.
That's communism. It's probably socialism, but socialism is just the lite flavor of communism.

On global warming climate change:
    Why settle for weak platitudes on climate change? Because despite global scientific consensus, elements of the Conservative base don’t believe human activity could warm the planet. Centuries of rational thought and academic tradition, dating back to the Renaissance, is being thrown out the window in favour of an ideology that doesn’t reflect reality.
Global scientific consensus? That's a lie, or he's just an idiot. It takes all of five seconds of searching to find the many scientists who were hoodwinked by the IPCC and are very angry about it -- and that's just the tip of the iceberg. He mentions "centuries of rational thought". Looking back centuries, anyone above the age of 11 knows that the planet has been steadily warming since the last ice age concluded, some 12,000 years ago. Anyone with a keyboard and access to the web can quickly discover that sun spots are the most likely cause of warming and cooling trends on this planet -- trends that have been ongoing for millions of years with no human involvement.

His overheated emotions would be comical here if the poor man wasn't in so much pain:
    The dogmatic refusal to accept that people have created this crisis and people must do what they can to avert it reminds me of the flat-earth crew. Except this time, we really are going to sail off the edge.
Eroding our industrial base, and therefore our civilization, to fight off a phenomenon almost certainly caused by natural forces that are well beyond our control is not only stupid, it's dangerous.

And now that he's unemployed, his pursuits will include elder care, activism, art, and Budo, among other things. That, more than anything else, says everything about the little socialist.
