On last night's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, we looked at a report suggesting that the coronavirus pandemic will force the closure of hundreds of Canadian media outlets.
Here's what the CBC wrote about the news:
Hundreds of Canadian radio stations, TV outlets risk closure says media study
40 local television outlets, 200 Canadian radio stations could close in next three years
Of course, the CBC writes this with some delight — they’ll be the last people standing, because of course they live completely off the government teat: $1.5 billion per year from the federal taxpayers.
Here's what Ezra had to say:
“These [broadcasters] have lived off a government monopoly for decades. It has been illegal to compete with them — you had to listen to them, you were forced to, so they took their customers for granted. What are you gonna do? Listen to someone else? You can't.”
