It is well worth the 26 minutes to watch today’s segment of Ezra Levant’s The Source (see video here) in which he lays out how the Canadian Broadcasting Standards Council is trying to censor what he says on his show.
What shocked me the most was who sat as judge, jury and executioner on Levant. The panel consisted of CTV, APTN and Global employees all chaired by a Chretien Liberal appointee.
The most galling conflict of interest belongs to Troy Reeb who just happens to be senior vice-president of news at Levant’s direct competition, Global TV and who had the gall to Tweet this:
Congrats to new
#CRTC chair Blais. Look forward to working with commission to support competitive journalism
How this hypocrite can look himself in the mirror is beyond me but these clowns have started a fight that they will soon wished they hadn’t.

Update: From Levant’s producer comes this Tweet
One of the judges in the CBSC decision against The Source, Troy Reeb, has confirmed to come on the show today. That should be interesting.
