Six In the Morning: It’s News, All Right

1 RIOTS, OUTRAGE, MAYHEM Someone made an anti-Islamic film and now the Middle East is rioting. Good job, everyone involved (/sarcasm). The Guardian has an article about the film, and if you want to read more on this stuff  in The Washington Post, you can do that here.

2 CANADA’S COMPETITION BUREAU SUES BELL ROGERS AND TELUS OVER SKETCHY TEXTING FEES Read all about it.

3 OH COME THE FUCK ON The Canadian Mint is pulling some real bullshit by suggesting it has a right to demand copyright fees for people who use images of the penny – -a common item everyone possesses — in album artwork.

4 RIP PETER LOUGHHEED Alberta’s signature premier passed away last night. Read more here, here and here — the last one is a commentary by Joe Clark.

5 APPARENTLY THERE’S TROUBLE IN CANADA The Guardian catches up on Canada’s rising anti-environment, anti-immigrant, pro-war and pro-separatist attitudes. Nothing terribly new but a decent round-up of our country’s increasing shittiness.

6 BOMB THREATS FIZZLE Apparently Middle Eastern terrorists have planted bombs at universities in Texas and North Dakota and oh wait never mind.

HEY, THERE’S A NEW RAP NEWS This one’s about the surveillance state. Good stuff–I love these guys.
