December XXVIIth, MMXI
Hon. Thomas Lukaszuk, MLA, Minister of Education, Progressive Conservative, Edmonton-Castledowns
My frustration is that IV journalism II be live & up II the minute, it should be totally live each & every hour. Students of broadcasting might share my frustration with this Thomas. Lets take Cable News Network's (CNN's): "Anderson Cooper 360" or "AC360." CNN advertises it as live II hours a night, but unless of a really breaking news story, the IInd hour is just a replay of the first hour. Sometimes with a slightly different pre-taped intro. by Anderson (taped earlier in the day or during a commercial.) To me thats not live. When CNN said "Larry King Live" was live, it was, every night at IXPM Eastern, & live would be under the CNN symbol II indicate this. In the replay later at night, & on weekends, Larry King's staff knew II remove the "live" indicator. Thats when CNN was glorious, when live meant exactly that. Its not just CNN, its FOX News, CBC, CTV, Global, ABC, CNBC, MSNBC, & many other networks. I am sickened by this media conspiracy II promote outright laziness & putting profits ahead of reportage accuracy!
