Anyone know what happened today? I tuned in around 3:30 this afternoon to catch a bit of Power and Politics and there were cartoons playing...no Amanda Lang either. I initially thought of CBC cuts but nothing on their website.

The Lang and O'Leary report is done. O'Leary is going to CTV? or some other channel and having a business show and Lang is joining up with someone else in September for a new show.


Life's a journey......so roll down the window and enjoy the breeze.

My TV doesn't even show that there is a channel 20.

Thanks MES...I just called Shaw and it is a network realignment of channels.

I prefer Shaw to Telus, but it's lame that Shaw only provides a non-HD version of the CBC News channel.

The ball?

A massive manhunt was underway Saturday for a gunman authorities said opened fire inside a Macy's store at a mall north of Seattle, killing five people. 

Security footage shows that he did not have a weapon when he arrived at the ball 10 minutes earlier. 4:14 PM ET

Does Macy's sell guns, maybe he bought one then quickly used it?

Aurora, the Vancouver Aquarium's last beluga whale, dead at 30

Aurora was from the Western Hudson Bay population of beluga whales. The average lifespan of a beluga from this population is 15 years living in the wild,

 

So after living twice as long as average in a prison cell, and watching her own offspring expire, it's now a tragedy for the Aquarium that she died?

Say, what's that mountain goat doing up here in the mist?

Could the CBC’s advertising pursuits be over?

Supporters of the CBC are also in favour of eliminating the ad money. “We’re very much looking forward to seeing what kind of mention it gets in the upcoming budget,” Sarah Andrews, a spokesperson for advocacy group Friends said.

In trying to find sources of revenue, CBC has “made choices that are maybe not the best,” such as the move into sponsored advertising. “That’s why we think it’s so important to bring the CBC back to its public service roots, because at the end of the day, that’s its role as a public broadcaster, to serve the Canadian public,” Andrews said. “They can’t have to rely on private advertising dollars.”

CBC’s sponsored content division, called Tandem, was put on hold briefly due to controversy over the initiative, but then resumed. Last year, the CBC got $1.4 billion in government funding, according to the CBC’s annual report, a figure that includes a $36.7 million advance from this year’s budget. A spokesperson for the CBC said its current advertising revenue is “just under $254 million.”

44-paragraph article.





A truck driver says he was denied justice twice — first by his own lawyer who lied and fabricated documents, then by the law society's insurer, which refused to compensate him because that same lawyer didn't follow its rules.

Dale Rindero wanted to sue his former employer, believing he'd been unfairly fired.

Now I suppose it’s not completely essential to the story, but most readers would at the very least like to know his side of the story regarding being fired. But the author doesn’t bother with that.

Why?

Because we might have lesser sympathy with the subject?

You’d think the headline news regarding Twitter would be its creator saying he backs the Musk deal.

But no. We’re seeing alarmist articles about how Twitter going private is an assault on democracy and human rights.

Advocates warn free speech is not an absolute right, say Twitter cannot turn a blind eye to violent comments

 

 

Musk never said he was going to allow "violent comments", whatever that means.

Top 5 stories on CBC website are about abortion right now.

We Canadians have a serious case of USA-watching, that’s not healthy.

Each week, about 4.2 million people will watch our flagship newscast The National by doing what viewers have been doing for many years: they will tune in on CBC-TV at 10 p.m. (Or on CBC News Network beginning at 9 p.m. ET.)



Notice how they say “each week” so we do not compare their daily audience against the national population?





While some critics focus on traditional TV audience numbers as the only measure of our success, the real story of how an organization like the CBC reaches and grows its audience in today's multiplatform media landscape is much bigger and infinitely more complex.

Streaming audiences, though fragmented, are sizable and growing, hungry for high-quality, fact-based Canadian video journalism — just not in the places we've traditionally offered TV news.

That's why we've launched a free streaming channel and new streaming brand. It is called CBC News Explore — a place where Canadians can step back from the fast pace of breaking news for a deeper dive into the stories and conversations that shape our lives.

The audience for suppertime local news shows got so bad – a combined total of just 320,000 viewers spread across 27 stations (an average of 12,000 viewers each) – that the CBC finally decided to produce one, central-Canadian based program to show countrywide.

Most nights in non-pandemic times, The National, the CBC’s flagship late-night news, draws fewer than 500,000. That’s a third as many viewers as CTV’s Toronto affiliate brings to its local newscast.
