Rex Murphy: Who Needs An Environmental Review?
In my last post I argued that the CBC should fire the Con clown Rex Murphy, for promoting the Energy East pipeline.
While being paid by Big Oil to give speeches glorifying their dubious achievements.
And for attacking Justin Trudeau, and acting like Rona Ambrose's spokesman, on the CBC's flagship news show The National.
Well now in the National Post, Murphy has taken his deranged campaign one step further.
By claiming that we don't need environmental reviews.
Does it occur to anyone that something that sounds so clinical and neutral as an “environmental review process” is actually neither clinical nor neutral? Do people realize that behind the cogs and cogitations, it is just a political stage show, an act during which politicians can temporize and equivocate?
And that all they are designed to do is waste time, and make his Big Oil friends weep...
Environmental review processes are meant to cloud the memory, eviscerate patience, stall every decision and make the industry weep. They are the security blanket of every temporizing politician, the activists’ armory, the green warrior’s shield and lance, and the economy’s ultimate wet blanket.
Rather than protect and save our burning planet for the future generations who will inherit it.
Because Murphy was, is, and always will be a deranged climate change denier.
A "great racket" is what Murphy calls "this global-warming/climate-change stuff." He once raised doubts about climate science on the basis that he saw it snow in Vancouver one winter and actually used his soapbox on the CBC to declare climate science had been "debunked" (a conspiracy theory that has itself been debunked).
And he is making The National look like a comedy show.
So now what I would ask the CBC's useless managers is this:
At a time when this trial which begins on Monday is sure to embarrass them.
After an external review by lawyer Janice Rubin harshly criticized CBC management last spring for its handling of Ghomeshi’s workplace behaviour, the broadcaster’s president and CEO, Hubert Lacroix, offered a “sincere and unqualified apology” to employees and Canadians at large.
When will they realize that by protecting bullies, and by treating their "stars" like demigods...
They are guilty of making the same mistake?
And who exactly do they intend to make the anchor of The National when Peter Mansbridge finally retires?
Because let's be clear, the reputation of the CBC's flagship news program is now perilously close to that of Ezra Levant's greasy hate mongering freak show.
Levant and Murphy are indeed singing from the same song book...
And enough is enough.
It's time to take back the Conservative Broadcasting Corporation.
It's time to give Harper's appointees and their hapless management stooges the boot.
And in the name of the The National's journalistic credibility, and before Rex Murphy destroys what's left of the CBC's reputation
And of course in the name of the future.
It's time to fire that Con climate change denier...
