Personally, I think that would have been a more wryly accurate name for CTV’s “fresh” new politics program rather than the crass-sounding “Power Play” title the marketing braintrust at Newsnet selected, but hey, what do I know?
In any event, today’s show (which, like 99% of the viewing public, I successfully avoided watching) featured Conservative co-leader Michael Ignatieff intimating that he’d be giving Stephen Harper a stern talking to in private this evening over the way he’s running the country… Uh huh.
Other topics of no import discussed included his response to the unctuous puff-piece in this weekend’s New York Times, a “helluva a party” in 2017 (to celebrate our new national energy grid, apparently), and speculation about a retrospective hypothetical concerning whether or not Bob Rae could conceivably take him out in a back alley.
I realize this was Tom Clark’s first day of his “fantastic new adventure” but good grief, let’s hope things get a little more substantive and, dare one hope, edifying than this kind of sycophantic drivel. The last thing we need is a continuation of Senator Duffy’s inane chatter and “insider” gossip-mongering.
