The real spin finally stops

The CBC spin will (finally) really stop here (in June).  (Only to be restarted again under a different spinner.) 

Apparently even after ripping off The O’Reilly Factor’s slogan, Canada’s state-owned media spinner, the CBC’s Don Newman, host of “Politics”, couldn’t beat Bill O’Reilly’s Factor ratings.  So he’s taking the early retirement package.

CBC STORY:
One of the CBC’s most eminent journalists, Don Newman, who currently hosts the daily Newsworld program Politics, has “opted for the voluntary retirement incentive.”

“[O]pted for the voluntary retirement incentive,” you say.  Could possibly be read as: “bonus”, I think.  Whatever.  That’s what I’m calling it, because that’s what it’s called, I say.  Spin out of that, CBC.

And can we call this NewmanGate?  I think “that’s what it’s called” too. 

EXTRA SPIN:

Newman will either be appointed to the Senate by Ignatieff or whomever leads the Liberals, or, being a CBC reporter, appointed to be leader of all the land, the Governor-General. 

Or he will take a job at Al-Jazeera and join his other former CBC colleagues.
