Has the Web already overtaken TV for White folks? Today’s show keys off a news item indicating the good news that it has. A study shows that Canadians, for the first time, spent more time (18.1 hours per week) on the Web than watching TV (16.9 hours). It gets better: Canadian Web time increased 21.5% from last year’s 14.9 hours online each week. Host Jamie Kelso’s curiosity is piqued by blatant effort in The Montreal Gazette to spin this story so as to hide the rise of the Web and the fall of monopoly TV. The explanation for the spin appears when we learn that The Montreal Gazette is one of 60 Israel Asper (succeeded by Leonard Asper) newspapers in Canada as part of the huge media and TV cartel called CanWest. We even learn that the list of bad guys involved in CanWest’s control of news in Canada includes Goldman Sachs as a principal. What started as a simple news item on the good news that the Web has overtaken TV in Canada (and likely in many White nations therefore) expands into an object lesson in media control.

    Excellent show.

    I wish they had done a survey factoring in IQ. I’d be willing to bet a much higher percentage of those with more grey matter are turning off their TV sets, opting for the net.

    I believe TV will soon be absorbed by the internet. A long time ago, I predicted TV, the internet, and the telephone will meld together, and they almost have. They enter many homes over a single coaxial cable, or strand of glass. With a high speed internet connection, you can make phone calls with optional video, watch movies, listen to music, and surf the web, or a combination thereof. Many PCs are now available with built-in TV tuners so you can switch from TV to internet with the click of a mouse.

    I think the day will soon come when TV shows will be broadcast over the internet, and they had better be good, because there will be a lot of competition. Instead of watching “cable” with 120 or so channels of crap, you will have, in essence, 120,000,000 channels of whatever you want, whenever you want it.
