When I first read about this, my thought was this was for tax purposes. It isn’t?

"I think a lot of people take a look at this and feel like it's the thin edge of the wedge [and] that more regulation is on the way," he said in an interview with CBC News.

It's a perspective echoed by Canadian podcaster Jesse Brown, publisher of Canadaland, who told CBC News Friday's announcement by the CRTC is concerning to him.

"What they're signalling is, 'We are going to be regulating the space, but we're not telling you how.' That makes it very hard," he said.

That wedge will continue to be inserted into the lives of Canadians as long as the Justin Trudeau liberals are in power.

Let’s hope Twitter, Apple, and Spotify don’t comply and pull service. You can’t block podcasts anyway. RRS feeds can be plugged into any player. It’s just convenient through those platforms. They took an inch. We are past that. Now they are taking feet.

This honestly makes no sense to me. Is the CRTC saying that it unable to assess the state of podcasts, streaming thematic services or online news without a registry? Or that it can’t find contact information without a registry? Does it not have Internet access and the ability to conduct searches? Has it conducted no analysis over the past decade on any of these issues? The CRTC tries to have it both ways by downplaying the information required, but then framing that information as essential to conduct regulatory analysis.

 

Third, the information itself may be limited, but the implications and obligations carry some significance. From a speech perspective, the regulator is effectively saying that a podcaster or news outlet that generates a certain threshold of revenue must register with the government, a position that runs counter to freedom of expression rights without government interference. The Commission repeated response to this concern is that many won’t actually be caught given the monetary threshold, which does not address why anyone should be caught for these activities.

 

Further, this is mandated disclosure of personal information (including the inferences of revenues for individuals) which carries privacy implications. And while the information isn’t hard to compile, the analysis determining whether one qualifies is not always going to be simple (a news site is only required to include revenues from audio or video, which may not be easy to determine for those that are subscription based).

 

Fourth – and perhaps most troubling – is that the CRTC repeatedly signals that registration is in fact the entry point to more regulation. The podcast, thematic services, and online news examples are clearly part of a potential regulatory initiative based on meeting Broadcasting Act objectives. In other instances, the Commission just comes out and says regulation is on the way. For example, for adult sites:

Conservative media company The Daily Wire announced it is making a live-action Snow White movie following right-wing backlash over Disney’s upcoming live-action Snow White.

 

Titled Snow White and the Evil Queen, the movie (teaser trailer below) stars YouTuber Brett Cooper as the princess in a film based on the original Brothers Grimm fairy tale, which is now in the public domain.

The app for Bentkey, the Daily Wire’s new entertainment company, became the number one downloaded kids app on the Apple App store on Monday, the same day that Daily Wire co-founder Jeremy Boreing revealed the launch of the new venture.
 
The app, which is available now with over 150 episodes of 18 shows — including four Bentkey originals, was the most downloaded free app for kids from Apple’s store, beating out other apps like YouTubeKids and Paw Patrol Academy.

Oh, Bent-key. It’s a ‘hard’ sounding word.

Funny you should ask. Bentkey intentionally launched on the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Walt Disney Company, a firm Boreing reckons “pushes all the worst excesses of the woke left”. Bentkey was apparently created in response to Disney’s public opposition to Florida’s Parental Rights in Education measure, also known as the “don’t say gay” law.

 

According to Boreing: “Kids go to school for 40 hours a week and then they engage in pop culture for 40 more hours every week. That means for 80 hours of a child’s week, you are turning them over to the left. A good parent might spend 15 minutes a day in meaningful conversation with their kids … A great parent might take their kid to church for one hour, or two hours, or three hours a week. The other 80, they’re watching Disney … they’re online … they’re in public schools.”

I am anything but a woke defender, but a good parent needs to spend more time engaged with their children. Parents need to make the time not just turn their children over to mass media outlets because they are busy.
