I know you have seen the ads. Local TV will die if they don't get a big pile of cash from, um, us.
Greedy they are but there was a rally on Parliament Hill yesterday, hosted, for want of a better word, by Ian Morrison his Friends Of Canadian Broadcasting. Couldn't make the rally but thought I would tune in Ottawa's only local commercial over the air channel, CJOH/CTV Ottawa and see what happened.
Either they didn't hold the rally or the gatekeepers at CJOH/CTV Ottawa didn't care.
And if they don't care to follow a local story about them, why should we?
