What would you call a man who has asked for the elimination of the CBC decides to work for them?
http://www.cbc.ca/thisibelieve/
He is delighted to host This I Believe--a series of essays, written and read by prominent Canadians. “Personal values and beliefs shape how we think, what we do and how we relate to others. Taking time to pause and reflect on personal values and beliefs, those of others and our own, can only be a positive exercise”.
Now that he's getting paid by the leftist CBC wonder if he will bash them?

Wait . . . I saw this on Johnny Carson.

Karnak holds an envelope to his forehead (turban) and says, "CBC, SINC, and Preston Manning." Then he deftly tears off one side of the envelope, blows into it, removes a piece of paper and reads,

"Name three things Canada could do without."


No hard feelings, SINC.;) This place wouldn't be the same without you.

Meanwhile in Kingston:

"It's now or never," the online invitation says. "This new party will never be infiltrated by Red Tories, special interest groups or Quebec again."
Let's get some shipping containers, create a facade resembling front doors and put up a sign reading 'Meeting Here'. Then we can slam it shut and ship them all off to some unpopulated island where they can live out their ideological existences.

I heard Manning interviewed yesterday on the CBC about the new radio program he will host (called "This I Believe"). The show is based on a famous US radio show from the 50s with Edward R. Murrow, where various people, prominent and otherwise, would talk about the core beliefs in their lives.

I respect Manning's sense of fairness, while disagreeing with his politics, but I think he'll do a good job on being equitable to all views. He did mention religion a few times, so I expect that there will be some theists on the show explaining their beliefs. I hope he will give some equal time to atheists.

I think the show could be quite worthwhile, if done right.

I expect our CBC critic, SINC, who I would guess has a similar political outlook as Manning, to regularly have the dial tuned to CBC for the show. ;)

Sigh, I wish you guys could get it right just once. I am a critic of CBC-TV news, not the entire CBC.

I have stated before, and do so again, that they do carry many fine programs on both radio and TV. And I agree with GA's assessment of Manning's sense of fairness.

AS is like the dog in Proverbs that consistently returns to its own vomit.
Only you'd be approving of someone calling for the elimination of the CBC until he can make a salary there....

The lack of integrity from those on the right is amusing if not hypocritical...

Don't worry MF, the socialist state will save one you day also... :baby:

And we all know Sinc hates CBC TV because of some misinterpreted incident involving Anne Medina MORE THAN THREE DECADES AGO!!!

Now that's a grudge.

It's like eating a dodgy shrimp as a child and never swimming in the ocean again.

I don't know how true it is, but this post made me laugh so hard I nearly pee'd myself. :lmao:

See, even when I clarify my position:

DB still gets it wrong. It's CBC-TV NEWS, not the entire CBC.

Incidentally DB, I once got drunk on gin as a teen. I've never touched the stuff ever again. Sound familiar? ;)

As a 17 year old I too got drunk on some extremely rough port. It was all I could afford and the guy who sold it to me described it as "under the bridge booze" - because that's where it puts you.

I was as sick as a dog for several days after. My moth felt like the bottom of a well used budgie cage.

Took me a lot of years to not get chills down my spine when I smelled port but, never one to let prejudices caused by my own mistakes get me down, I got back on the horse years later and now love port.

PS. CBC TV only exists because of news and hockey. By saying you hate CBC TV NEWS, you've covered most of the organisation in form or another.
