Paul Adams tweeted this – Story? Column? Op-ed? What is it? – earlier this morning. My friend Darrell Bricker was appalled by the fact that the national broadcaster would be reduced to running stuff that could have been generated by any “grad student with a calculator.”
Me, I was appalled by the writing. I mean, is it so much to ask that the CBC – which has more editorial staff, per capita, than any other Canadian news organization – endeavour to, you know, edit stuff before they put it out? I found the prose, here, dense and confusing to the point of being incoherent.
Anyway, it’s the new reality. Media polls (and averages of media polls) are worth what you pay for them.
