The tory Question Period agenda
It just hit me. Hard. There's a clear and obvious reason why the tories are dumbing down question period. They don't want anyone to report on it. And it's not just because they don't have anything to say.
It's pretty simple, really.
In the US, political discourse has moved from the floor of the houses to the television airwaves. It is, in short, political discourse by the highest bidder. By dumbing down question period and attempting to force the media to lose interest in this daily event in democratic government, they make it easier to shift their communications strategy to the one-way method of government-by-television-ad.
They have the money to do it, more than any other party by a long shot, and the anti-Liberal attack ads airing constantly on popular television channels together with their constant non-answers in question period belie their true agenda -- US style government by the highest bidder.
