The CBC and Hanukkah...

Last night while driving home from Christmas dinner at my boyfriend's parents home, we caught the late night BBC news. They had the Pope's Christmas message for peace, and the Queen's Christmas message as well. When it came ot Hanukkah, all they could talk about was Ariel Sharon telling Israeli's not to eat too much over the holidays. Fair enough..but then they ended their news with a short sentence that Sharon was about to crackdown on Palestinians. Why on earth could the CBC have not broadcast something nice about Hanukkah? For instance, they could have noted the Hanukkah service at the Great Wall of China? But no, they had to add a sentence about cracking down on the Palestinians.

By the morning, that sentence was gone.
