It's Snowballing

I just got off the phone with Jason Proctor from CBC Radio One. Expect to hear me on the news at 4:30 or 5:30 today.

I hope he doesn't use too much of a sound bite. From having been interviewed on the CBC before, I don't much the way I sound on the radio.

A friend of mine is a writer for the Colbert Report and used to write for the Daily Show.

Would you like me to pass on the info about this to him?

Especially since Colbert HATEZ Bears.

LOL - as funny as that would be, I'm not inclined to throw gasoline on the fire. I thought it was out of hand two days ago!

When I was watching the news last night, I half expected to see a mention of it pop up as a sidebar ... it's only a matter of time!

Seems the mainstream media has all jumped on the bandwagon today, following the Metro's lead. Tonight is a better bet.

Michael, you have officially reached Syndication... Canwest has it in every publication they own

Wow.
I thought this was a joke when I first saw it online. Well, it is a joke but I mean I thought the whole thing was shopped. I guess it's real after all. The wife and I had a good laugh over it.

Someone was telling me they couldn't believe that a journalist wouldn't know who pedobear is and I had to agree, though I remember the first time I showed pedobear to my wife and explained its significance. She was dumbstruck. I guess it's like saying that cake symbolizes pedo. Hard to make the connection if you're not aware of the meme.

I also agree with you that the other mascots look oddly similar. They could all be related.

The Edmonton Journal as well

They are all Canwest properties and share content. There are probably others.

I just heard a story run on News1130.

A friend of mine is an anchor there. Would you like me to see if he can forward to me an MP3 of the coverage?

That would be awesome. It's getting impossible to keep up with everything at this point.

LOL! Holy crap. :P

A guy from CanWest left a message earlier today, but I assume he's already emailed you.

Craziness!
And now I just talked to CKNW News1130. I think that pretty much covers the local media now.
