Did you really just call the Liberal Party run CBC an accurate reporting news broadcaster?
As for hockey.....
CBC HNiC is even more heavily Toronto biased than TSN is. We were still hearing about Phil Kessel while Boston was sweeping Pittsburgh in the conference finals last year.....this a full two rounds after the Leafs had been eliminated in a choke job that not even the Canucks can match.
No, I didn't. What I said was, the CBC can run news that isn't necessarily designed to generate revenue. Which can be a reasonable balance to the far-right Sun, Global and right CTV.
The CBC has its own problems, but the lose of a public broadcaster is bad news for any fair-minded citizen of a democracy and supporter of a free and independent press. Unless you think news is just a commodity designed to generate profit.
And the only reason that is relevant is because the CBC is highly dependent on the profitable HNIC property. Which I suppose shall continue, but likely won't generate nearly as much for CBC with SN running the show.
