The CBC is now producing unreliable news at taxpayers' expense. Tonight's The National features a man from Drayton Valley who claims that the federal government caused the downturn in the oil industry. No, it didn't. The US shale revolution did. #cdnpoli #abpoli @PresidentCBCRC
Now The National, in its "in-depth" coverage, lets the mayor of Drayton Valley get away with the statement that it's government policy that killed the town. "In-depth" apparently means recording everyone's uninformed sob-story.
Now Ian Hanomansing lets the next uninformed interviewee state that AB should stop transfer payments to Quebec. AB does not make transfer payments to QC. Furthermore, QC is taking a lot of AB oil via the Line 9b reversal.
Well, the CBC did not offer anything "in-depth". In fact it misinformed viewers by providing exclusive airtime for a lot of misinformation and made no attempt to rebut any of it.
"In-depth" in CBC's terms seems to mean spending quite a bit of money sending The National's hosts around the land to record the uninformed emanations of Canadians. Heck, those are available at no cost on Twitter.
