This should raise some serious red flags about how we get our information from the news.

Why? False news is not permitted in Canada.

What's so new about so-called news generated from so-called entertainment?

Clue for you: It's not about the worthiness of the news; it's about how the MSM is a regurgitation of the same news, right down to the awkward phrasing.
Glad to help.

That's freaking crazy. Anything to save a buck!

Bigger clue for you....it's not about news at all. But whatever it is, it can't be "false" in Canada or there will be hell to pay!

Enormous tip for you: Don't listen to the guy in your head telling you everything has to do with Canada.

Titanic clue for you: it's more fun to make it seem that way....Canada likes attention from "the states"....even bad attention! So make some noise:
