CANADA: CBC running scared: State broadcaster’s false attack ads demonstrate how financial probe is desperately needed. “The non-partisan information commissioner has given the CBC a grade of “F” for its secrecy — but it still violates her order for it to disclose the truth. It’s spending millions in legal expenses to hide how it’s spending billions in other expenses. This bad behaviour was coming to a head last week when Parliament was going to turn over some rocks and see what was going to go scurrying. And so it panicked. . . . If any other government department had done something like this, whoever responsible would be fired immediately. It wasn’t just unprofessional. It wasn’t just outside of its mandate of what it is given its government money for. It was an attempt to destroy a private-sector competitor.”

Turn on the lights, and the cockroaches scurry.
