In the news: Fans don’t heed Canadian Idol producer’s rant

Bill Brioux of the Canadian Press dissects the aftermath of Idol producer John Brunton chiding fans for eliminating Toronto contestants:

  • ‘Idol’ producer fed up with T.O.
    “Brunton’s complaint flies in the face of the first law of television: the audience is always right. It also exposes “Canadian Idol” to a more troubling – if not exactly shocking – charge: even the producers see the show as more of a regional popularity contest than a true talent search.”
