The Rob Ford Media Joust

Our words are too often signs for crude and hasty, for indefinite and indefinable, generalizations. 
William Dwight Whitney, Life And growth Of Language, p. 29

Well it is really is true. There have been rumors, as of late, that the 'Harper Government' has been manipulating the media. Especially the old vulgar print and television medias. Well Dear Reader, it is no longer a rumor. There is some force that is keeping certain embarrassing events from ever coming to the vision of your eyeballs. It was concerning an event that occurred on April 15, 2013, and then was put on to You Tube on April 16, 2013. The Oracle of Ottawa discovered the whole thing by accident today April 27, 2013, the time of this writing.

Rob Ford - No respect....
 There has been of recent times a magic force field to protect the egos and media profiles of all the hapless members of the new Canadian right wing revolution. Any thing that is unflattering is filtered out of what would have been news just a few years ago. But thanks to the new media, no one can get away with such Orwellian control any longer. Perhaps there is some thing to this new digital revolution after all.

Rob Ford is the present mayor of Canada's largest city; Toronto. He has been a train wreck as are all right wing revolutions. But if you want to see the screw ups, you have to keep an eye on You Tube and other social media. There seems to be a media black out, some say has been caused by the Minister of Canadian Heritages James Moore, with the introduction of his 'purity pledge' that all members of the CBC had to sign and swear to. The Oracle of Ottawa can only now surmise that this is true in fact.

Once upon a time in the days of old, men of opposing views would mount their battle horses in full armor and lance and settle the matter by a joust. Opposing forces would be judged at and on impact. Well it seems that the Mayor of Toronto thought he would give it a go with the media. The clip of the joust of the Battle of Evermore follows...

 You can't make this shit up...and only seen in small regional Toronto markets. Blanked out every where else in Canada. The Oracle of Ottawa knows it was not reported in Ottawa, which is about a two and a half hour drive from Toronto...
