CBC Opens ZeD.cbc.ca Code

pyropaul Re:CBC - state run? yeah right (334 comments)

Do you really want your news media to be completely reliant upon the government? Under such circumstances, would you trust their objectivity?

And how is the governement and less objective than a coporation that is paying to put across its point of view? There's not too many companies who run ads in programs they disagree with.

Having lived 3/4 of my life in the UK and 1/4 in Canada I do have some experience of the difference between state funded and privately run broadcast media. Both countries have both forms but the state funded media, in my experience, has been far less mainstream than the advertising funded sort (with the notable exception of Channel 4 - though their charter requires they provide minority interest programming).
