‘Juvenile’ broadcasters

Dear Editor:

This is a rant. Recently our Canadian news outlets referred to the high-level talks between Canada, the United States and Mexico as between the “three amigos.”

Does not our media realize how inappropriate it is to refer to the leaders of these three countries as amigos? It is childish, immature and harkens back to another era. It is juvenile in 2021 and time for our broadcasters to grow up.

I watch the American outlets as well and never once have I heard them use this term. Unfortunately, it probably won’t change in this country because our broadcasters must think it is cute or endearing. It is neither.
