NOTE: This is the second part of a previous blog entry which would otherwise have gone on too long. So read the first part first if you want some background: “CBC “blog” panel expert suggests Spitzer should have lied about legal charges. Like Conservatives!”
This “Online Panel Blog” at the state-owned people’s web site features a sort of internal navel-gazing format where one “panel” member looks at her navel, then asks the others to show her their navels, and then they compare navels to see whose is bigger or more fun or more pierced, or whatever.
The CBC “Online Panel Blog” is another part of the many services (like “Sodoku”!) that our benevolent government provides for the citizens of Canada using the cash they took from our paychecks so that we don’t blow it on ”beer and popcorn”, as the liberals think we will if the state doesn’t take our cash and spend it for us.
This is much better than beer and popcorn.
And as we know, without the state and its benevolent services, we simply wouldn’t have any blogs to read. Or TV to watch. OR radio to listen to. Or even satellite radio to subscribe to. Nor would we know how to think about anything, or learn how to be good leftists.
And golly if there’s one thing that Canada lacks today, it’s the blogs. So thank God the state-run, state-owned CBC came up with its own set of political blogs to provide to our citizens. Without the state and its meddling in our lives and its magnificent benevolence, Canada would truly suck! This way, we’re much more like Iran!
Who are the “panelists”?
At least one of the three panel experts at the “Online Panel Blog” is a seemingly know-nothing nobody, who, whadoyaknow, also seem to be far-left know-nothing nobody. The second is a nobody to me until today—keep reading— and the third of the three is a good, renowned pollster, Nik Nanos, whom I suggest is making an egregious error being even remotely involved in this left-wing pap on the clearly leftist state-owned media.
One of the experts is the one quoted in my previous blog entry—the pseudo-legal adviser Sarah Albertson. She’s described as follows at the state-run media site:
Sarah Albertson lives in Vancouver where she works for an environmental group that promotes public transportation. She has always been interested in politics and, in 2002, founded a new civic party called the Dance Party Party, which was designed to get young voters involved in the electoral process. The DPP fielded two candidates in the Vancouver municipal election that year.
Who better for the state to employ in order to enlighten Canadians about politics?
Another one is Pauline Couture, who asked the brilliant question “Where is our Barack Obama?” (in my previous blog entry about this), which says all we need to know about her. She is described as follows:
Couture is a journalist, author, communications consultant and public policy volunteer, careers that have taken her across Canada and around the world. Based in both Toronto and Montreal, she has worked in a range of knowledge industries from media and telecommunications to energy and financial services, with a special interest in culture.
Gosh that’s like nobody else in Canada. What a coup!
What the well-paid CBC web gurus fail to mention about her is that her husband is Ian Morrison —the head of the “Friends of Canadian Broadcasting” lobby group, which is what I see as another one of the many left-wing advocacy groups promoting state-owned socialist TV… Hey! Just like the CBC! The “Friends” are one of the groups who support and regularly testify before the state-regulator (the liberals’ CRTC division), and constantly push for more and more “Canadian content” on our TV and radio (even though we clearly don’t want it and certainly don’t want it shoved down our throats and up our butts, Iranian-style, as it is now). Pauline Couture sits on the “Friends” advisory board.
Here’s a recent news release from them. You can see an image from their web site’s front page, at above left. They’re against Conservatives. Shocka.
Couture has also worked for the state-run regulator, the CRTC, itself. Huh. And for the CBC. Weird.
Why aren’t any of those things relevant to a description of her? I think they are. Why is the CBC shielding our eyes from that information? Strange, huh?
The online political panel blog of political education and state benevolence… is itself described as follows:
Meet our online political panel, three Canadians from different backgrounds who follow federal politics closely and are not affiliated with any party. They will be meeting regularly online to share their views and observations of recent events. We invite your comments.
“[N]ot affiliated with any party”, huh? Perhaps they should read their own descriptions of panelists (”…in 2002, [Sarah] founded a new civic party called the Dance Party Party.”) And while perhaps not now “affiliated with any party”, Sarah Albertson and Pauline Couture are not exactly conservatism advocates. And let’s hope the discussion doesn’t bother turning to the hideousness that is Canadian broadcasting, the CBC, or the CRTC, for example—or socialism. We’re not likely to get a real balanced view, there at the CBC “blog”. (Of course that’s the point. It’s the CBC). As you can see from the above “Friends” web site image, they’re definitely “not affiliated” with the Conservative Party!
So it’s all good.
Of course not being “affiliated with any party” is no guarantee that the “panelists” aren’t left-wing or far-left advocates. But then the CBC knows that too.
State-owned, state-run media should be banned in this country, and that should be enshrined in our constitution.
