Conversion Chart

John Roberts is kind of an arrogant tool. Not saying he's a bad guy all the way around, because he isn't. But, yeah -- arrogant tool.

And now he's converted to Scientology.

The salient quote in this interview:

"It's really interesting to work for a place that has the vision of one person that immediately gets disseminated to everyone across the board. You don't have a huge flow chart that goes through myriad branches before it goes down to the troops. Basically you have Roger, and then a couple of people he has as his trusted lieutenants, and then there's the rest of us. There's very little left to interpretation when it comes to what we're doing. Everybody gets the message. That message is really just: cover the news. Tell me a story."

Right, John. That's precisely the message.

It's disappointing to think he's become an ass, because when I was a ten-year-old kid, he was the coolest guy in Toronto music media (back when he was JD Roberts).

He needs to grow the mullet back and stick to interviewing Canadian "new romantic" bands:
