During last night’s Canucks game, I noticed that even with all the ‘outrage’ over the CBC’s job losses there were at least 8 talking-heads being paid during the broadcast. These 8 were just the commentators, play-by-play and colour guys I saw and not the unknown amount of other employees like producers, editors etc.
It got me thinking about how the news department employees who lost their jobs this week feel about where the CBC spends our money? If it was me, I’d be pretty upset.
Then this morning, after seeing Kady O’Malley’s latest article, I wondered if their jobs were more important and meaningful than hers?
I don’t know exactly who lost their jobs and what the job descriptions were but I’m going to go out on a limb and guess that they did more than this to collect their publicly funded pay-cheques (see here).
