"It’s difficult to escape the notion that Messrs. Obama and Bernanke receive light treatment from their news media because American reporters and editors want the Obama administration to succeed, while Mr. Harper gets a comparatively rough ride because too many outlets and commentators hope he falls flat on his face.

"Oh, and one more thing: The CBC should be a service for elitists of all stripes — not just the left-wing variety. It would be nice, for instance, if an American Iraq war resistor could pass through Toronto without automatically scoring a gig on The Current; or if the subject of Iraq could come up without George Galloway being interviewed; or if missiles could hit Israel without Carol Off co-miserating with a Hamas apologist.
Don't make me bring back CBC Watch, Carol. Oh please, don't make me bring it back."
