It costs $1 billion a year. And it justifies itself by saying it provides services that no other media outlet in Canada will provide.
Services, I suppose, like running this piece of shit.
You want to take on McCain and Palin, fine. Like they'd really give a rat's ass. My advice as a writer: use real logic and real evidence, not invective and insults that border on racism. There are plenty of things to criticise about Republicans. Do some research instead of flinging garbage.
As a taxpayer, I don't want to pay for this garbage. The country isn't short of opinion-editorial space. If no one wants to publish Mallick in the free market, maybe the CBC should take the hint.
I'm in favor of a very scaled-back CBC with one radio network and one TV network doing documentaries and educational programming, with concise, straight news broadcasts similar to The World at Six. This type of trash reinforces that view.
If Heather Mallicks fans want to read Heather Mallick, let them do it on their own dime, just as the David Frum and Mark Steyn readers do.
