Today andPOP presents our very own special report in honour of CBC’s unnecessary wedding coverage of two local reporters. We investigate what colleague Jordan Darville ate for lunch. Groundbreaking. Then we have a heated discussion about whether cats or dogs are better.
In gratuitous wedding coverage of the day, we present CBC Toronto’s prank report on two local reporters getting hitched. The broadcasters treat Steven D’Souza and Nisha Patel’s nuptials like they’re Kate and William, dispatching reporters all across town to investigate what they refer to as “Breaking News” and a “developing story.”
One reporter is sent to the magical party room where the two met, before airing emotional interviews with close friends. Apparently the momentous day is felt across Canada and — wait for it — EUROPE. We know this because the CBC talked to a market analyst on the Lang & O’Leary Exchange to confirm that their marriage might be the turning point that the economy needs.
We’re not done. The CBC called on a correspondent located in the East Coast to retrace Steven’s former life, though all the reporter can talk about is girls in bikinis. Instead of a weather report, they forecast what will happen each year of the couple’s marriage. They’re forecasting twins in year three.
They save their star reporter for the last bit, when they call on an unwilling but game Peter Mansbridge. You can tell the whole thing is obviously just a prank or wedding gift for the happy couple. Either that, or it was a slow news day.
Only in Canada!
