International Women's Day 2016 - Journalism as Accidental Satire

1:03pm - 2:00pm

Welcome to the first episode of International National News with Elan Fortin and Alex de Boer on International Wymen’s Day 2016. Our afternoon segment of news analysis and comedy explores the role of “accidental satire” within mainstream Canadian journalism. Our primary source of material, Metro News, gives us a window into society’s views on diversity, discrimination and disadvantage. From the lasting spirit of a rebellious little primeape named Darwin to the heart wrenching tale of a postponed wedding, Fortin and de Boer delve into journalism’s shortcomings and have a little fun along the way.
