CBC and Reality TV

In case you missed it, here is a letter to the editor I wrote, which appeared in today’s National Post.

It’s about the CBC:

Dear Sir/Madam:

So the CBC will bump The National to make room for an American reality program.

Has it really come to this? Is the self-proclaimed guardian of our culture going to scrap its dignity in a mad grab for ratings?

If so, then I have a suggestion for the next CBC reality show.

It would be called The People's Network and it would feature a bunch of CBC brass going around explaining how they squander millions of taxpayer dollars to produce shows nobody wants to watch. In the final episode, the host would point to them and declare: "You're privatized!"

Now that would be must watch TV.

I also did interviews regarding the CBC on Adler Online and on Calgary’s The World Tonight. Will be doing an interview on it tomorrow on 570 News.
