  1. Made the mistake of actually watching a little local Vancouver CTV and Global News. On both, their stories were 2 days old and appeared to be ripped out of the previous days’ local papers. Going to have to get a lot more current then simple plagiarism to keep viewers. Lazy, so-called journalism.
