The New CBC

Wow... talk about thinking outside the jello wrestling pit.

"Some changes, such as anchor Amanda Lang’s clear glass desk with view of her legs, surprised industry watchers."

I was not impressed with one thing the cbc did. Too much movement, flashing lights that can cause seizures, same old bias. Peter is no Wolf or John King, and should stay seated. Kady talks too fast to be understood, no question period. Guess we are to follow that by her blogging. And Evan was a total washout. His panel sucks. And to think canadian taxpayer money paid for this.
What a waste of money.
Listening to the same story every 15 minutes is stupid, same as seeing the same video over and over. Watch for an hour, you have seen and heard everything and then change channels.

well, heck... if turning the news into a version of "so you think you can dance" is gonna pump up those numbers... i guess the mother corps felt they just had to go for it.

myself... i can't wait for tara jean and her linebacker thighs to start doin' the weathergirl splits in that gold sparkley bikini.

Taped Solomon's show and must say I am glad I did. What a waste of time. The panel with that Susan Smith one of the most obnoxious women to appear on any political panel is intolerable to watch. The rest of it covering the flash mob was silly and a waste of good air time. John Manley's interview was ok but the show was boring and whats with the scowl. I think he is trying to compete with Sandi Renaldo over at CTV.

just the most recent and egregious example of taxpayer-funded lipstick on a pig... (the pig being the dreary show).

did amanda get to strut her stuff?

you have to wonder how she feels about being showcased like a tray of porkchops at the local a&p.

wtf are these geniuses thinking?

CBC should have tried to imitate Fox instead of cnn. CNN is in the tank ratings wise. Seems when you diss a few hundred thousand people who show up at teaparties and town halls, they stop watching. Peter, sit down again, you look like you are going for a walk, and stop and talk once in a while.
Americans designed this for us. The cbc should never diss anyone who follows an American idea again.
Guess that is what happens when you follow the big O.

Imitate Fox?...cripes, these clowns should resurrect SCTV Guy Caballero and Earl Camembert on the road to credibility...baby steps for this outfit of misfits.
