Today’s edition of the Montreal Gazette’s cover was plastered with a large article that almost filled the page. About hockey. What the fuck, I’m now paying for Hockey Today? Why must I pay for Hockey Today?
I’m very grateful to you nice folk who entertain some sport or other — I don’t now but have been known to — but plastering hockey on the front page of the only English language daily in Quebec, as opposed to actually REPORTING SOMETHING, is a crime.
This . . . THIS . . . is what they’ve been reduced to? I wrote my contact at the Gazette a few months back and he wrote me that “Things here are tight, good luck getting your ideas to the right people.” Boy, was he right.
That paper has become so much kindling for dwindling grills.
But HOCKEY filling the front page? How slow can a slow news day get?
Or is it just me. Yes, it’s JUST ME.
That’s it — the Gazette is now bye-bye. Bye-bye, you fucking excuse for an English-language newspaper in Quebec. Today's edition merely signed your death knell.
I should read "Allo Police" instead.
