Alright, so if you’ve missed some episodes, you can always catch them on youtube at

But here are some of our best bits from the past little while:

1)We dissected Ann Coulter’s appearance at a Canadian university. Was she funny or offensive? Free speech of hate speech?

2)We tackled the tough niqab debate- when has reasonable accommodation gone too far?

The incident: an Egyptian immigrant taking specialized classes in college, refuses to show her face to the class while giving an oral presentation, and during a seperate group discussion, asks three male students to turn around and not face her.

3) We spoke about Constance McMillen, a Mississippi girl excluded from her high school prom because she wanted to bring her girlfriend. Why is acceptance of gays so difficult in America ? Is it Obama’s fault?

New Episode! Jan. 26 2010

It’s been a while since We’ve posted a show on the blog (although we have been going live almost every Tuesday at 10 a.m on CJLO 1690 AM)

So last Jan. 26 was a day of HOT TOPICS…and let me tell you things got hot

We spoke about:

1)A Toronto MP who slammed the Minister of Immigration for visiting Auschwitz instead of Haiti
2) Poor Vegans giving their small income to Haiti relief. Should the poor give to the poor?
3) Kim visited NY and met her idol… erm… her idol’s sister.

4) Diane Sawyer’s awkward kiss with President Obama
5) Obama’s politics; where is the change at?
6) CTV’s Canada AM is just not up to snuff

American Apparel crosses the line..

and I believe that line is called a g-string. American Apparel is well known for their scantily clad models.

The clothing company’s barely there ensembles are usually an effective marketing ploy, but how far is too far? The above image is highly provocative and down right dirty. It’s porn masquerading as an ad.

Certain Virgin mobile ads depicting embracing couples were taken down in Calgary recently. Imagine the uproar this American Apparel ad would cause.

I don’t understand how it could be a clothing ad when she’s hardly got any on!

What you missed on today’s show!

We spoke about :

~ The fee levy increase at Concordia for CuTV(9 cents/credit) and the Concordia Library( $1/credit)

~Sarah Palin‘s book sells well, but not as well as Bill Clinton’s memoir

~ Charles Manson’s long lost son

~Regis and Oprah leaving thier daytime talk shows

~Stephane Dion’s wife posts her opinion on her facebook ( and gets taken down by the liberal party)

How many women could possibly want to sleep with Letterman anyway?

Apparently, quite a few. Even Letterman admitted on Thursday’s Late Night, saying “I had sex with women who work for me on this show.”

Notice he said women. Well, new scandal is breaking as an ex-Late Show staffer reveals to People magazine that there was another affair, before Stephanie Birkitt.

According to the unnamed source, in the late 1990s, Letterman had a sexual relationship with another of the show’s employees , who was not merely an assistant.The source claims that she was among his “peers, a woman close to him, not an intern.”

This occurred all while he was dating his longtime girlfriend, and now wife, Regina.

“Even the interns knew stuff like that was going on,” said the source.

Apparently  Letterman’s sex rampages weren’t a big deal in the office.

“It wasn’t a big deal because he wasn’t married,” said the source. ” And we heard he had a girlfriend , but she never came around, so it just wasn’t a big deal.”

Um, if she knew he was having sex behind closed doors, im sure she would have shown up to the office a few times!

What a pig! Letterman deserves no sympathy, he is a liar, a philanderer and a multimillionaire!

Could this be then end of his popularity . . . ?

After threatening  to release photos and proof of an affair , David Letterman’s blackmailer was arrested yesterday outside  CBS headquarters in NYC, according to TMZ.

Robert “Joe” Halderman, a producer on CBS‘ crime show 48Hours was arrested for allegedly trying to extort $2 million from the late night talk show host.

The woman behind the affair was revealed to be Stephanie Birkitt, Letterman’s former personal assistant who has appeared on the show many times participating in skits, under the name “Vicky”.

It is rumored that the  sexual relationship between Birkitt and Letterman  ended sometime before 2003, when his son with then longtime girlfriend Regina, was born. Letterman married Regina in March 2009.

The disturbing part is the way Letterman let the story unfold? Is this really a joke? Humour should be used to move through tough times, but this was downright disrespectful.

Here is what he had to say on Thursday’s Late Show:

Here is Birkitt on Late night in a “Know your current events ” skit.

Memoirs of a Hockey Mom

Sarah Palin cover

She’s baaaack!

Mamma Palin is gearing up to release her new book “Going Rogue” on Nov. 17, which has already drummed up $1.5 million in presale.

The memoir was originally intended for release in the spring of 2010, but because she left office in Alaska (and relinquished her duties as Governor), she now has the book available just in time for the Holidays!

Can’t you see it now, sticking out of a christmas stocking over a fireplace?


Judging by the cover, the book will probably be a really dry read.  How interesting could she be with the American election over anyway?

Update: Further proof that Americans have lost interest in Palin.

The New York Post is reporting that her lecture circuit speaking tour is not selling well.
