It’s called ‘Jumping the Shark’.
It’s a Television expression that describes doing something so outlandish that it destroys any and all credibility you may have.
Well Sun TV hasn’t just ‘jumped the shark’, they’ve hurtled over a whole school of sharks with the announcement that they have given the infamous Ford Brothers their own TV show.
That’s right, Mayor Rob Ford, the crack smoking, drunk driving , foul mouthed Mayor, who is prone to bouts of drunken stupor, is apparently the kind of host that Sun TV is looking for.
I know that many of the people at Sun TV live in their own little world of ultra-conservative ideology, but haven’t they been paying attention to what’s going on ?
This is a guy who has brought disgrace to the Office of Mayor of the 4th largest city in North America and has been a lightning rod for ridicule and derision .
And don’t drag out that lame excuse that he’s being victimized by the ‘left wing media’.
Ford is totally and completely responsible for this train wreck and anyone who thinks differently is drinking the same Kool Aid of Denial that Ford has dipped into.
It’s strange, really.
Sun TV has been trying to convince the CRTC that they are a credible and important news organization.
By hiring Rob Ford they’ve become a Carnival Side Show.
So much for credibility !
