I don't seriously expect that the Conservatives, if in power, would actually sell off the CBC — probably just starve it of funding so that some kind of correlation could be achieved between its relevance and its ability to feed off the public trough. But I can hope…
Last week, after my research (here and here) on the Liberals 'Audits' created a firestorm in the media and the House of Commons, I received an email from a CBC investigative journalist wanting to do a piece on the story. He was planning on investigating the conflict of interest regarding the Liberals and the accounting firms that had conducted the 'audits'. After several phone conversations with him, and after him telling me he had interviews scheduled with some prominent forensic accountants, he informed me that his bosses did not want to pursue the story. The reason was because 'information that [I] dug up has already been reported."
