BCTV Daily Dispatch: A Richly Deserved Scott Adams/Dilbert-Free Space

In today's BCTV Daily Dispatch: BCTV is a Scott Adams/Dilbert-free zone. Plus, James Gunn/Henry Cavill, The Last of Us, South Park & more!

Before I dive any further into today's BCTV Daily Dispatch editorial, now might be a good time to address the elephant, the gorilla & every other metaphorical animal chillin' in the metaphorical corner of the metaphorical room we create in our minds to convey "there's some important shit we need to discuss sooner rather than later." I get that Scott Adams/Dilbert might be an odd topic for an editorial coming out of television/streaming, so we're going to say that it was because I was a fan of the 1999-2000 animated series and leave it at that. No other reasons. Nothing else to see here… [puts hands in pockets, begins whistling & looking around in every direction without making eye contact]. Today, we have Adams calling Black Americans a "hate group" and telling white people to "get the hell away from Black people" and "just get the f**k away," proving (from all of the medical training perspective that a television/streaming editor can muster) what the results of long-term exposure to the same stapler, "I hate Mondays," Post-Its & morning coffee jokes for a decent chunk of your life would be.

So what does that have to do with BCTV and us being an Adams/Dilbert-free zone? Because Adams gave me the opportunity to demonstrate just how easy some editorial decisions can be sometimes (though rare). You have to cover his comments because that's what lit the match. And you have to cover the fallout that resulted – in this case, the newspapers and other businesses that cut ties. But offering details on where he's taking the character, offering links to subscribe, and things like that? That's not coverage. That's giving Adams an opportunity to rent you for a glorified infomercial while you sell out for clicks. It's not "how things are done" or "how news works." It's just shitty professional practice with a high LCD factor. And it's something we're trying to avoid. That's something I thought you should know… now where's the BCTV Daily Dispatch?!
