There's a Reason They Call It the Conservative Broadcasting Corporation
As you know, I frequently question the judgement of the hapless stooges who run the CBC.
I question how they let a shabby tea bagger and climate change denier like Rex Murphy act like the high priest of Big Oil on The National, their flagship news program.
Or for that matter, why on the day the Duffy verdict came down, with its scathing criticism of the Harper PMO, the National led its newscast with fifteen minutes on the death of Prince.
But then there's a reason they call it the Conservative Broadcasting Corporation.
Because that's a lot of Con supporters eh?
Even without the one who didn't make it into that group photo.
The loyal Con Brian Mitchell.
A member of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's board of directors has resigned from his position to seek the presidency of the Conservative Party of Canada, The Tyee has learned. Brian Mitchell, a Montreal lawyer, confirmed that he resigned Sunday after eight years on the government-funded broadcaster's board of directors and its pension board of trustees
Mitchell said he's running in order to help rebuild the Conservatives after they were voted out of office last October. "I think the party needs me," Mitchell said. "The party needs my experience and my help and my loyalty."
Who is riding to the rescue of his party.
And no doubt, along with the other Cons, looked on loyally or cheered wildly, as Stephen Harper gutted the CBC...
Or bled it dry.
The scary part is that the remaining Cons will determine how the $675 million the Liberals just gave the CBC will be spent.
Which is like asking the fox to save the chickens.
And yes, if we are going to take back the CBC, like we are taking back our Canada, we have to get rid of that Con board. And replace it with one based on merit not party affiliation.
We need to purge the upper ranks of management.
And of course we need to fire this ghastly teabagger...
