It's quite clear that musical tastes change with each generation and so do the outlets which allow music to be heard. I can understand why new age music might not be readily accepted by the older generation. Our ever changing music industry is constantly expanding into various avenues which make it easier for the average singer or talented artist to be discovered.
Since the late 90s, reality shows have taken over almost all of today's television programming. What this new star process yields are anxious malleable, vacant performers who ape correctly, take instructions obediently and, outside of pleasing the masses, don't have a shred of genuine character.
Don't Canadian networks have a duty and an obligation to get us more involved in caring and rooting for other talented (or at least entertaining) Canadians instead of just watching Canadian commercials during American shows?
