the Media IS the Message

Please fill out the petition above if you appreciate CBC Radio and TV.
I used to work for a CBC Radio Producer's Union. I know how hard these people work creating intelligent and thought-provoking content. The equivalent of NPR, CBC  Radio provides commercial-free news programs like The Current and As it Happens. The CBC provides exemplar (good word) arts, culture and lifestyle  programs like Q hosted by Jian Ghomeshi and Sook-Yin-Lee's  Definitely Not the Opera. But there is Opera and a day filled with commercial-free music on CBC Radio 2. And I've always had a link to Randy Bachman's Vinyl Tap on my blog because his show is so good.
CBC TV is generously peppered with ads and a smattering of American shows, but it's my favourite for news programming and comedy. Ranting Rick Mercer should be the next Governor General of Canada.
This Hour Has 22 minutes makes me laugh out loud and point at the screen. (Gavin Crawford really should be on SNL, but no, I digress, he should stay in Canada) and Ron James' mind-boggling word-play reveals his superior wit.
There is a full range of radio and TV on CBC's French network, Radio Canada, for the Francophone and Francophile among us on. The European-tinged easy-listening on Espace Musique makes me forget where I am for a while.
What I'm saying is that I love the CBC and you should too. If you do, please sign the petition above. It'll get to them somehow.
If you are unfamiliar with the CBC Radio you can listen online by clicking this sentence.
