CBC to cut 800 jobs. Nobody will notice.

CBC announced the cuts today. 

Just 9,200 more cuts to go. 

UPDATE (11:24 AM PDT):

”…we will be monitoring the decisions of the Board [of the CBC].”
—Prime Minister of Canada in Parliament, one minute ago. 

I always call the CBC “state-owned”, but refrain from “state-run” as much as I can stomach refraining from it, because I’m constantly browbeaten by Canada’s leftists and CBC apologists for calling it “state-run” (it’s “arm’s length”, donchaknow!). 

No more.  It’s official now (as if it wasn’t before). 

And that was a Conservative Prime Minister talking. Can you just imagine if the you’ve got to be kidding party were in charge? 

EXTRA ORWELLIAN:

That statement from Prime Minister Harper reminds me of the legal papers the state-owned, state-run CBC’s lawyers once served me with, in which they indicated that they will be “monitoring” my web site. 

(Hi CBC!)
