Would you pay more for the CBC?

Canada’s public broadcaster came out Friday saying that they feel Canadians are willing to pay more for their service.

I’m all for the CBC.  I think they do great work covering news, sports, arts and culture.  From the Morning Edition on CBC Radio, all the way to The National on television.  Personally, I would be willing to pay more for the coverage.

That being said however, I feel many Canadians would not be in the same boat.  There has been many a person who has called the CBC nothing more than a waste of taxpayers dollars.

There are those who also feel that the Crown Corporation should not be in the news business, as they reported on their “bosses” on a regular basis.  Some have gone as far to say that the CBC’s reporting bias depends on the governing party of the day.

So all in all, I think Canada’s oldest network may have a fight on their hands, despite what they are telling regulators.

Conservatives are now blaming the media “elite”

The GOP in the states has been blaming the “liberal” media for conspiring against them for years, and now it look like the HarperCon’s are doing the same thing.

More and more in Canada, politics is looking more like that of our southern neighbours.  And it’s not just the Conservatives who do this.  The NDP have been using former Obama campaign workers as well.

But if you needed any clarification has to where this move is coming from, I can almost promise you it’s from a Republican playbook.
