Goodbye CBC

As a complement to today's federal leaders' debate the CBC had a group of first time voters watch and comment. But while the clear majority felt that the NDP's Jack Layton was the winner (as demonstrated by holding up pictures) there was no identification made for those that couldn't clearly see and interpret the photos and the segment was edited so that the only leaders or parties mentioned by name were Harper and the Liberals. While this token item may be small in its actual impact, it may be one of the most blatant examples of media distortion I have ever seen in Canada and unless it is corrected I will no longer be a "Friend of the CBC"
