TV responds to May and the blogosphere over 'Stupid'

TVO confirms "that the audio of the clip in question is intact. As such, TVO is not and will not be pursuing legal action of any kind on this matter. All of this, though, may be a tempest in a teapot, because a few of us here at the shop have reviewed the tape in question and - although she says it a bit quickly - May does not seem to be saying "... I think Canadians are stupid..." at all, but rather " ... They think Canadians are stupid..." In the context of the conversation, the "they" in question would be other politicians who do not have the political will to consider a carbon tax. In the words of Daffy Duck, this whole incident may come down to a case of pronoun trouble."
