Globe columnist lets cat out of bag about CBC Peter Mansbridge’s salary?


Ignoring the lame Nixon/Harper comparison and bizarre defense of a supposed CBC competitor writing a column supporting it, what caught my eye was the Globe and Mail Lawrence Martin mentioning what he thought CBC’s Peter Mansbridge was making:

Parliamentary committee members are currently pursuing Peter Mansbridge and other CBC executives for salary details. If market value means anything, they might consider that the big U.S. news honchos make $10-million to $20-million. Mr. Mansbridge, who probably makes 10 per cent of that, is just as good or better. (see here)

Now, don’t get me started on the idiocy of comparing salaries of a Canadian taxpayer-subsidized news organization to those privately owned in the US but I guarantee even Mansbridge’s supporters would have a hard time stomaching him making $2 million a year.

Keep in mind that Mansbridge went out of his way to defend Martin when untruths were discovered in his book “Harperland” (see here) – can’t wait to hear what he has to say now.

    Lawrence, aka “Lorry” Martin to his Liberal pals, makes my skin crawl like so many more of the same ilk. He and Mansbridge are in the “birds of a feather” category, patting each other on the back or lower….at least we still have choices, we can tune them out.

    I for one still want to know how much Peter Mandsbridge’s is.
    It is paid by my tax dollars, I have a right to know.

    Indeed Dean as we have seen it isn’t the salary, it is the “bonuses” and expensiing everything from the tea and muffin to the 25 cent parking fee.
    I always wondered if Saint Jack expensed his Shiatsu treatments at the “Velvet Touch”.
    Details, details, a wedding reception, oops a meeting, really adds up after a while.
    Unfortunately if it is a Liberal or NDP’er it just does not seem to hold the media attention for very long.
    I am guessing Mr Mandsbridge “News Reader for the Liberals” pulls down 1 to to million a year.
