Well I finally got a chance to watch Sun TV Nooz. After calling my cable channel to make sure I wasn’t paying for it eh?
And all I can say is they should change the name of Ezra Levant’s show from The Source to The Sauce. Because anyone who watches this low budget production is going to need it.
I mean I always knew it was going to be bad. But who knew it would be so BORING?
The overall look of SNN, at least in these early days, is of a network trying to do more with less. The sets and lighting are spartan, and the fact that the hosts of various shows keep popping up on other hosts’ shows leaves one wondering if we’re watching a news network or a sketch-comedy show (seriously, when is SCTV’s Earl Camembert going to take a turn behind the anchor desk?).
And so Ezra.
Levant, sensing that Canadians might be ill-prepared for Sun News, cautioned viewers: “Don’t hide under your beds . . . This is not an invasion of Martians . . . We’re about truth and freedom . . .”
Enough. We get the point. Levant seeks to polarize — that is his agenda. He is self-aggrandizing and sanctimonious — also his agenda — but he runs the risk of becoming tiresome real fast. That could be his tragic flaw.
Because let’s face it, that nerd is EVERYWHERE.
His stream of consciousness ravings so absurd and yawn inducing, you have to turn off the sound to enjoy them.
And if that wasn’t bad enough, or the set wasn’t garish enough, the supporting cast of this Con klown network is so ridiculous.
The anchors shout a lot for people who mostly agree with each other, as if music someone else had chosen was playing too loudly. The women smile and nod a great deal. They all wear bright short skirts. None of them have sleeves. About 70 per cent of Sun TV’s programming feels like being trapped at a second cousin’s wedding reception.
Even a kid can see through them.
My son came downstairs while I was watching Sun TV. Fifteen minutes into his oatmeal, not five years from voting age, he laughed and said, “Wow, they’re like little kids who’ve built a cardboard fort, and now they’re pretending dragons are attacking it.”
Yup. Just as I predicted.
Sometime, in the next SIX months. (I’d say three but I don’t want to discourage them.)
When Ezra Levant is reduced to doing the weather.
In a sleeveless dress . . . and pearls.
You’ll know it’s all over . . .
