Yes I read this before at Impolitical before you started this post, but since you can't comment over there...My only thought on this is if it was OK to hire Teneycke as a regular, then Kinsella and Lavigne should get the same airtime and CBC deal, no?OrStick to network guidelines and stop wasting our tax dollars.I'd prefer the later.
Pretty sad, that they've hired a hack, who has the audacity to question the network poll impartiality. I'm willing to bet a few see a big mistake with this hire.
Yes I also noted the sheer hypocrisy of it at the time. Any idea if the CBC has been alerted to P&P breaking their own network's guidelines in hiring said hack?
Oh, I think they know ;)The funniest thing, the CBC has bent over backwards to appease the right wing loons, and it hasn't mattered a LICK, they still bash and bash and bash.
Hey Steve, I admit I'm not a child of the internet, so ya I figured something was afoot with complaints to the CBC. Just wanted to be certain.I'm too lazy to look it up over the interwebs, but Tom Flanagan himself not long ago commented on the 'lefty media bias' BS, and said that was not true anymore; and had not been since Harper won government.Hey now why can't Evan hire him if he wants a REEEform hack as a regular? At least Flanagan has the redeeming quality of telling it like it is, even if that runs counter to the spin from the PMO.
Some ordinary citizen should file a complaint to the CBC Ombudsman, because the more I'm hearing, the more this hire stinks to high heaven.
Check out Warren Kinsella's blog - he's made a confession on this topic.
I saw that.
So, it goes to the election platform you were building, Harpercons, anti-democratic, shady on the regulations, opaque/not transparent, accountable only when the weight of the Westminster system around the world is brought to bear before the summer visit of a savvy Queen, whose GG allowed Harper to prorogue to escape an issue of privilege, an issue which the GG's advisors should have understood and told her. No, there is in Teneycke's hiring more of the same corruption. It is the sickness of Harpercon realpolitik.The scale of the Liberal's past excesses pale in comparison to the darkness Harper let into the system.

Here's what I read:-------------"CBC/Radio-Canada Journalistic Standards & Practices." See below for its pertinence. 1.1 HIRING OR CASTING OF PERSONS IDENTIFIED WITH POLITICAL PARTIES OR PRESSURE GROUPS-------------- Seems to me that unless they are hiring him as an actual 'journalist', there should be no problem. As a 'commentator', he falls into the same category as a columnist (who are not required to be unbiased, since they only offer their opinions on a given issue anyway), doesn't he?
Fred likes his propaganda and so should you!/rolls eyes
Steve,You said:"...the CBC has bent over backwards to appease the right wing loons, and it hasn't mattered a LICK, they still bash and bash and bash."hahahahahaha.That was good. I gather you enjoy Terry Milewski's pieces. I love the "hypocrisy" point coming from the left. Graves makes outrageous comments on a poll he conducted paid for by me and you for our Mother Corp and his comments are "nothing to see here"; but Kory who clearly identifies himself as a Conservative, and everybody is up pointing like body snatchers.Some of you have indeed drank deeply.
Wow Tomm, that's pretty funny getting the koolaid lecture, from a guy that mentions Milewski. Like, were your born the day Harper took office, because I guess you missed all those stories slamming the Libs for YEARS. I'm embarrassed for you, silly boy.
I have a good memory, but it's short.
The koolaid effects long term memory. Sober up!
Steve,My mind is not befogged with drink.I think this is just my normal aging self.
