CBC employees see no problem pimping ‘Idle No More’ protest

Jian Ghomeshimccue

If CBC reporter for The National Duncan McCue or CBC TV/radio host Jian Ghomeshi want to promote a political cause such as the Idle No More protest on Twitter, they should be at least doing it from a private account:

@jianghomeshi If you care to learn more about the IdleNoMore movement this is a good online destination…

@duncanmccue Beautiful piece on #IdleNoMore by @NaomiAKlein MT The Blessing of #Indigenous Sovereignty

You’ll notice both Ghomeshi and McCue have their CBC affiliations posted on their Twitter bios (see here and here) and don’t get me started on what a load of untruthful crap Klein’s op-ed was (see here) but the real question is why these two are advocating for this protest while collecting cheques from taxpaying Canadians?

    Simple solution; we’ll take the CBC budget and give it to Native groups. I’m sure they’ll be onside with that.

    CBC wouldn’t post my comment about this article that was reported in MacLeans about the hunger strike turning into a “send money for the soup bank”. Comments not in support of Chief spends.
