Steve, whose stuff I read religiously, had this amazing tweet a few minutes ago:
Canadians spent 28.5 hours a week watching TV last year, says CRTC, up half hour from last year.

I find that amazing. A day a week! Who has time to do that?
I don’t watch TV at all. Zero, zippo, zilch. No news programs, no reality shows, no nothing. Haven’t for years. (And I am only able to post my Sun News clips on this web site because I see them online.)
I don’t have a big ideological objection to TV, although I do find that much of it is stupid. Mainly, I just don’t have the time. That’s why I’m astounded that so many others can devote the equivalent of an entire day a week to the idiot box.
Who’s like me? And which of you are part of the majority?
