"What you see here is a pattern – not just of making bad deals, but a pattern of thinking, or, if you want to be less charitable, of hubris.
Like the person who has too much pride in his home and holds out for every last dollar when selling, even in the face of evidence that the market is worsening, Mr. Asper could never bring himself to shed a trophy asset. (The one he did sell, he bought back less than two years later for nearly the same price.) He always thought he could manage his way through the problem and avoid crisis."
Curiously, CanWest is a victim of Zionism. As a Jewish Billionaire, Asper was unable to sell his key assets because his duty as a Jew required him to maintain the propaganda outlets to continue to lie to people about Israel and its wider intentions. I will print the entire first comment to this article, by Robin Travers, before it is disappeared:
"Gee what a shame. A major pro-Zionist corporate/government propaganda outlet might go bust. I'll sure miss all those news stories that served the Canadian public interest CanWest Global published.
You know the stories I'm taking about: the ones covering the poisons and heavy metals in our vaccines, the toxic sodium fluoride in 45% of Canadians' drinking water, the carcinogens the government allows companies to put in our food and CanWests's expose of GMO food, the history of state sponsored false flags and terrorism e.g. Operations Operation Susannah, Gladio, Ajax, Northwoods, Gleiwitz etc, the fact that Israel broke the ceasefire with Hamas 4 Nov 2008, the crimes against humanity Israel perpetrates against the Palestinians on a daily basis all documented by Israeli human rights organizations such as BT'Selem. I'll also miss Canwest's coverage of the police state Canada is becoming and how Canadian Prime Ministers are largely puppets of the Queen, that is when they're not putting the finishing touches on the projects their corporate paymasters have set for the,e.g. the SPP.
All and all it'll be pretty tough to fill the gap left by CanWest should it collapse. I don't know how our democracy will survive without it. Without CanWest there to challenge the (corporate/zionist/government) establishment version of things I guess we''ll just have to rely on some other news outlets to do their journalistic duty and report the facts Canadians need to make informed decisions about their government and their country."
Memo to the JIZ: the fact we have limited outlets for the truth doesn't mean that you can continue to delude yourselves that you have successfully fooled us. WE KNOW.
