Good idea...but I think that both the CBC and CTV are warming up to the Tories and tory ideas...
Just the other day, I was watching CBC Newsworld and I caught a debate between a supporter of the war and one of those lefties who want to bring our boys and girls home. I think it was Andrew something (can't remember his last name) who asked a question to the Non-Supporter, and to me, it sounded like an attack. His tone of voice, his way of presenting it...it sounded as if he supported the mission...
He asked something along the lines of "But, you say bring the troops home...whats there stopping the Taliban, who we know are hiding in the hills around Afghanistan, from just walking into the country and taking control again...wouldn't this endanger more Canadians?"...now you'll have toi find an exact wording, but it went like that...

That's a good idea certainly. Because as a reformer it's an evolution in mainstream media to have the reporters and the journalists to be more accountable to their viewers and hte public at large.
But canadians have been blesed with good, semi-well balanced reporting, with the possible exception of the CBC.
When I compare media coverage and stories on the BBC or any american media website you can smell a bias 100ft. away. But in Canada, I don't see that bias as clearly.
Though I always thought what would be fun for a grade 12 project is to record all the national newscasts from all the major networks(Global, CTV, CBC) and compare and contrast the stories they covered, the way they report the story, and the difference in stats and facts.
Does CBC have a comments section. Love that ad for the Hour with Ralph Stephanopoulos(or what ever his name is) where he is interview Suzuki and Suzuki says "He's so far up Bush's backside".
Can't imagine who that blast was aimed at.
We need a majority for the sole purpose of selling this joke of a government corp. The only thing I watch on CBC is The National, Hockey and Mercer, who I think is very balanced in his critcism of politics, in a gay sort of way.(not that there is anything wrong with that).
