600,000 people watch the newscast, is what you’re saying?

To be honest, they should reference 4.2M views, not “people.”

The CBC website is just article after article every day on how bad Danielle Smith is for Alberta. It’s relentless. They are serving their paymasters well.

Is it?  This seems to go both ways...  Sure it shows some concerns, and I think that's ok, there are some.

This one's not really solely negative either...

There will be no “counter analysis” by “experts” on the other side.

No but even reading it doesn't come across as what she is doing is bad, just potential constitutional issues which is obvious I guess.  I don't know.  There are risks which is also obvious.  Hard to find 'experts' to say it's a great move.  Most are cautious cause they need to see how it flushes out.  I was just expecting to see 10 different articles blasting her but that is not the case.

No intelligent person can possibly view the CBC as unbiased journalism.

Oh yeah, I don't chase headlines..  That's how he closes his "analysis" piece, it's not a news article, more of an opinion with some quotes..  But the meat of it isn't too slanted really..

No one says it's unbiased, show me journalism that isn't biased.  I just checked on what was said above and fond it lacking.  You might want to look into things a few more times...

Shouldn't a national news agency paid for by tax dollars be fairly neutral, and not to blatantly choose sides favouring the federal Liberal party?

Should is the key word there... hence the CPC call to defund the CBC.

Sure it should.  The 3 articles we are talking about are not that I would say.  I don't read a lot of CBC, only when others cry about it actually.  Show me in those 3 where the blatancy is?  The two I posted had arguments for both.  I think it's really hard to justify what Alberta is trying in this case cause it seems no one really understand where this could all go.  There seem to be a few ways this could end up.  Some are very threatening even to Albertans.  Now if you guys are a little gun shy because the CBC should be tougher on JT I can't really answer to that much.  Does the CBC usually favour the Liberals, or what ever party is in power?

Thanks for all those, expect for the opinion piece can you highlight where they are saying she is bad for Alberta?  I don't mind reading them all but want to understand your contention.

Opposition doesn't want to withdraw it?  Is there something in this headline that is biased?  I guess my question is, are there news agencies saying different things about the Alberta Sovereignty with in a United Canada Act?
