We always assume politicians are wrong and evil and we'll provide you out-of-context clips to back it up, so you make sure to flog it, flog it, flog it. No quarter given to dissenting views no matter how logical or reasonable they are."

Fuck, enough already.
100% agree, drex live is the worst culprit too. i cant stand that guy, all his feigned outrage and then belittles people with dissenting views no matter how reasonable or logical they are. after hearing them bleat on about the transit referendum i couldnt listen to NW anymore

Modern media is brain-dead.
And making blanket generalizations is also brain-dead.

Delivery driving, I'm usually on 101.7 out in Abbotsford. CIVL radio (Ufv's station). Very wide variety of music on most of the time.

The only radio station I listen to in my own car is AM 730 just to hear how shitty my commute is going to be every morning. When I have to drive the cars at work I hope to god the Satellite Radio is active otherwise I just turn it News 1130 or CBC Radio 2 in the morning to feel like a sir.

I really can't stand our FM channels

Talk radio is 100% agenda-pushed. They are told what they can and cannot say.

Listen to the kiss radio 104.9.

Used to love the Beat with the kid show. After switching to kiss/sonic. He's been playing a lot more music and recycling his "talk" portions of the show. Its getting lame.

Honestly. If I wanted to listen to music. I would play it off my playlists or stream. Rather have him talk about current events and maybe thrown in a song here or there..

The ending song, "See You again" from Furious 7 was supposed to be a decent song, but the radio completely ruined it for playing 5 times every single morning.
