Why don't we dispose of any pretense, and get the powers that be to name the CBC as the Liberal party's official communication team?
The CBC is unique -- and therefore uniquely accountable to its viewers -- because it is funded by the state. As such, it has a particular mandate to present the Canadian story...
...The CBC ombudsman is apparently looking into the incident, but it isn't likely to be the transparent investigation that is needed to truly serve the public good.
There has been no word of any investigation within the Liberal party.
Yet, all of them remain on the public payroll...
Awesome letter in the Post - Media's silence is shameful by Bill Parish of Ottawa.
Check out Steve Janke's Karlheinz Schreiber Timeline to see why Pablo Rodriguez and any complicit others are on a fool's mission.
Excellent! Let's keep it going.

(Original Thursday post)
Adam Radwanski weighs in on Pablogate - She just got caught.
According to Adam, "it's common practice for journalists to use MPs as they try to advance their stories." Apparently, the unfortunate part apparently is that one got caught - Someone who works for a publicly-funded broadcaster.
Adam calls it a stupid question - "For suggesting a really stupid question, the reporter deserves some flack. But for suggesting a question at all, she shouldn't get raked over the coals any more than a whole lot of other reporters."
Instead he puts the onus on the one(s) who actually went ahead and used the questions (in an Ethics committee).
I think Adam is making sense here. Is the person who asks someone to do something shady actually more in the wrong than the person who agrees to the idea and carries it out?
Of course not. Someone in the Liberal party obviously made a stupid, unethical, politically-motivated decision.
Time for Liberal party to step up to the plate and divulge the details. Who was in on this, and how high up the ladder of authority did it go?
SDA - Mr. Carlin: Tear down that wall! - with interesting comments and speculation why we're not hearing much about this from MSM. I guess the CBC will never hire me now.
