I am different from my colleagues in other ways, too. For example, I do not call CBC “the state broadcaster,” like everyone else seems to around Sun News. It’s not as if they got a memo from Kory Teneycke and Luc Lavoie to always refer to the CBC as “the state broadcaster,” by the way. It’s just everyone calls it that, except me.
Most of the time, Sunnies are just doing that to poke fun at Mother Corp. because the Mother Corp. takes itself too seriously. It needs to laugh at itself a bit.
Last week, however, quite a few people – me included -were laughing at the CBC, and not in a good way, either. Last week in fact, the CBC became a laughingstock, even among latte-sipping, secular humanist One-World-government types, like me.
