The CBC says NO to being on our panel...

I was actually at the CBC Annual Meeting today in Ottawa. I was leafleting outside about our upcoming film and panel on the Biases of the CBC. I went inside for the presentation and I actually got to ask M. Lacroix a question. I told him about our event and I asked him if the CBC would like to be on the panel. He said he was aware of the event, but that the CBC would decline because the event appeared one-sided and just full of activists.

I then told him there would be more people at my event than at his!

You'd think he's show some interest in actually seeing our documentary, no?

"One sided"? "Full of activists"? Perhaps lacroix was describing the CBC. More evidence that CBC'ers like LaCroix labour under the ridiculous assumption that they are unaccountable. The arrogance is staggering!

Isn't this the same tactic that FOX news network uses? Sun is doing the same thing. I guess there's money to be made here.

Nice try Steve. Nobody is forced to pay for Sun News or Fox News. If one has cable, they are forced by the Government to carry CBC. So, citizens are forced to pay for the CBC by the Government whether they like it or not, and then are forced to pay again through the subsidy all cable providers receive from the taxpayer. The Government nor anyone else forces you to pay for Sun news or Fox, or force cable providers to carry them.
