There’s a great new show launching on CBC Radio today called Day 6.
They commissioned me to create a sound piece that made me pay close attention to a story that I might have willfully ignored as overblown media hype – and that I think the international news media really ought to have ignored: the hate-filled ravings of a certain Islamophobic pastor in Florida.
The assignment was to remix some of the soundbites to come out of the story in a 90-second “for-the-record” news mashup.
I thought “American Idiot” by Green Day might provide an appropriate musical counterpoint to all the hysteria.
