Martin Knelman believes that the CBC may be on it's way out. He sites a softened approach to news and the failure to create new programming of interest.
I think part of the problem may be that they are simply shell shocked.
Our current government has had it in for them for years. And I don't know if that's why they started shifting to the right, but I no longer watch their news stories.
And panel discussions have become one right-wing opinion pitted against another.
No one speaks for Canada anymore.
With Fox News North on the horizon, they are going to be eaten alive.
Knelman says that if Harper gets his majority (egads!) he'll no doubt just defund it.
He's probably right.
But unless they get back to being a "public" broadcasting system, why bother funding it at all.
