Here you can see a real world demonstration of how the local media rescues the City Administration from being mauled by by an angry electorate. The pissed off bull represents the people. The rider, City Admin and the rodeo clowns represent the media. When the rider is in danger from the people who have been angered by some issue, the clowns rush in and distract the bull, allowing the rider to escape unharmed. Distractions can include misinformation, blaming someone else, pointing out the administrators are really nice people.
So does this media bailout help Thunder Bay become a better place to live? No. It simply enables the same old City Hall crap to continue…forever.
Our local print and electronic media appear to support our City Administration no matter what. Remember, this is the Administration let our fair city become a city dependent on the kindness of others. An Administration that sat back and got fat watching as our fair city slowly rotted away before their very eyes. A city whose moth eaten and antiquated infrastructure is now teetering on edge of no return. Our media support these people.
You have to ask yourself why that is.
