OriginEdit

Bob Johnstone (c. 1930 – September 2, 2012) was a Canadian journalist and broadcaster. For many years he hosted the CBC Radio programme Today in History and was one of the first reporters on the CBC Television programme the fifth estate.

He began his journalism career as a reporter for The Toronto Star, and later worked with the CBC as a court and crime reporter.

His book, Today in History, a collection of selected transcripts from the radio show, won the 1998 Pierre Berton Award for Achievement in Popularizing Canadian History.

EffectsEdit

Allows the user to be able to hold anyone's attention when they speak through the mic; it also seems to have a calming affect on anyone who may be upset or angry. The user's voice seems to be amplified for farther ranges by the mic. The user must either be able to tell a good story or at least tell the truth, and believe in it, through the microphone and it will keep anyone's attention in the radius of their voice.

CollectionEdit

Artie collected the microphone from a person who was using the mic during a rally and managed to calm people down who got into a fight and managed to keep the attention of the people very easily, despite the fact that they were bad at their speech, but passionate and believed in what they were saying to the crowd.

Now Rush Limbaugh's mic is placed next to Bob's in order for it (Rush's mic) to stay inactive.
