Scripted! with Regis and Kelly

Documents obtained by The Canadian Press show how far the Tory government went to micro-manage the announcement that this show was coming to PEI last summer. There was even a requested soundbite for the announcement.
"Our government of Canada continues to work in partnership to further strengthen the tourism industry on Prince Edward Island," the MEP says.
Of course, this is an open advertisement of the Conservative party. It's saying that the Tories do good things for everyone, vote for us. It's like the Economic Action Plan signs: a propaganda campaign to brainwash Canadians. And the Tories were also mad when they didn't make the news. They wanted the front page headline to be: Tories contribute $200 000 to bring Live! with Regis and Kelly to PEI. This is just one of many examples of how Harper needs to control everything and keep secrets from us. More will come in the future.
OTTAWA — It may be called LIVE! with Regis and Kelly, but new documents reveal just how tightly the Harper government scripted the announcement that the popular morning show was coming to Prince Edward Island last summer.
Hundreds of pages obtained by The Canadian Press under the Access to Information Act show the lengths to which officials went to stage-manage the big announcement.
