CBC's O'Malley Mocks Government On Access To Information Diligence

It's ironic that a CBC journalist blogger would direct mocking criticism at the government for their diligence in responding to Access To Information requests; when her own public tax funded broadcaster frequently refuses to respond to ATI requests about how they spend those tax dollars. Perhaps it is as they so often say, "takes one to know one". Oh that's right I forgot, the CBC has the moral high ground because they are protecting their "artistic integrity" (I know, calling anything produced by the CBC "art" is objectionable).

Kady's original post mocking of the government on this matter came a few weeks ago after an ethics committee hearing investigating the CBC questionable practices regarding ATI requests. She was trying to deflect criticism away from the CBC by throwing mud at the Tory government under the title "OpenGovWatch", questioning the gov's sincerity on posting ATI request results online by the end of the year. Today the government announced they would do exactly that, so Kady re-posted her original negative post from a few weeks ago, scratched a few words out, and added an update at the bottom. Is that her way of printing a retraction? Or did she use the announcement as an excuse to re-post her original mocking criticism?

It doesn't really make a whole lot of sense, but that's something we've come to expect from the journalistic blogging world of Kady O'Malley...


  1. "ALL HANDS ON DECK" must be the cry from the CBC dep. to stop their bosses (canadian taxpayers) from viewing the CBC expenditure.

    I wonder why Kady who writes to the public who pay for CBC doen't want them how things are going at CBC?

    BTW, how much do we pay Kady?


    If Canada had elected a legitimate, small-c fiscal conservative Prime Minister, and a Heritage minister who didn’t consistently succumb to the far left, they would eradicate the state broadcaster, rather than increase CBC’s funding by $60 million ( a 6% increase) in the 2010/11 budget. The $1.1 billion annual bailout by taxpayers is an embarrassment and humiliation, since in reality, the state broadcaster,with its far left agenda, is nothing less than the N DP’s “Ministry of Popular Enlightenment and Propaganda.” Why is a so called “conservative” PM willing to fund our State Broadcaster, one of the highest government funded state broadcaster per capital in the world, especially when there is absolutely no need for it to exist when we have a $30 billion deficit and a $580 billion debt.

    Now that Canada has numerous television and radio networks, satellite networks, and the internet broadcasting Canadian content, there is no longer any necessity for a state broadcaster; especially one scripted by left-wing affirmative action bimbos/minorities, and watched to mostly by the far-left, but paid for my people who actually work for a living and pay taxes.

    One of the numerous rationales for the exceptionally low quality of the state broadcaster’s regularly error overflowing “news” is its policy of sacrificing excellence in order to promote its moronic left-wing NDP/CBC shared values propagandist agenda, plus its perceptible quota system of hiring recent immigrants even with their habitually sub- substandard journalistic credentials. The state broadcaster’s far left, extraordinarily over-paid bureaucrats consistently produce “factoids”—rhetoric pretending to be facts but, in reality, is merely Orwellian spin reprinted from the NDP’s talking points. These Cro'-Magnon bureaucrats employed by the state’s broadcaster consistently delude the public, some times by intent and other times because they hire these semi-qualified, affirmative action government journalists. As opposed to producing quality, informative, balanced, unbiased journalism, the Canadian tax payers are over paying for the state broadcaster which has an immense creditability gap, is guilty of oversimplification and “dumping down” news, neglects to distinguish between opinion and comments, prefers form over content, uncompromisingly encourages anti-Americanism, and has no public trust with anyone not on the radical left!

    If Harper was a genuine small-c conservative, with the political will of a conservative, he would immediately eradicate this national embarrassment, that is so left-wing that the middle of the road is a different time zone, to a private pay for view station that wouldn't be a black-eye on the journalism profession, sell the complete far-left bias Khadr hugging state broadcaster, or simply shut down, by defunding it by at least 10% annually for ten years, this radical left bimbo/minority ran degradation to humanity.


  3. She's paid too much whatever it is. Snippy mockery that wouldn't cut in a high school newspaper and the CBC calls it 'content'. My teachers would have labelled her a 'chatterbox' and asked her to focus. Maybe it all comes with growing up in an NDP family.

    BTW CBC is a broadcaster, so why the big online presence with dedicated staff? Dumping would save a lot of tax dollars and take a lot of tax-dollar-paid bumpf out of circulation.

  4. Has journaloser Katy been mentored by Wendy Measly in middle-aged "cuteness"?

  5. I'd like to know how much that silly bunt is paid.
