When I see these defences of the CBC by their supposed competition like Postmedia, I wonder if they get an official call to write it or like a hockey goon sitting on the bench, knows their role when his coach taps him on the shoulder to take a shift?
First up on Saturday was Stephen Maher with his “Sun TV plays dirty with trumped-up CBC porn scandal” and today we get Stephen Hume’s rant about taxpayers finding out about the 730 CBC employees making $100K+:
Can you believe it? Eighty-seven per cent of CBC employees do not – let me repeat, DO NOT – fall into the top five per cent of income earners in Canada. (see here)
How dare we know this information! The only unintentionally interesting part of this tirade was Hume letting us in on how many CBC employees there are.
This is what happens when a Canadian news organization becomes the latest prostitute (see here) in the CBC whorehouse.
