A few days ago, DMc posted a monster think piece on Ten Things That Would Make Canadian TV Better.
I think it should be published in Playback
. It's not their usual thing, but it's what people read in the Canadian industry, and the piece is so good, they ought to be able to spare the space.
Here's what I wrote the editor:
Dear Mr. Dillon:
Every now and then I read something on the Net that really deserves to see a wider audience. Denis McGrath has been saying some really insightful things about Canadian TV -- the business, the audience, the process -- that all of us ought to take to heart. He's written a particularly brilliant post in his blog here:
I think you ought to consider publishing it as an op-ed piece in Playback, or possibly even inviting him to write a column.
All the best,
If you agree, why not drop Mark Dillon
a nice, polite note, in your own words, and let him know?
