Big Media Pays the Bills
I wanted to jump on this item quickly, as it's from a podcast recently done by Jesse Brown at Canadaland wherein he regularly talks about Canadian writing, bloging and mainstream journalism.
As television news dies, the value of their weatherbeaten icons soars, kind of like the maidenhead on a sinking ship where you look for anything that floats. Murphy's bleats about Neil Young's responsibility have turned out to be poorly mirrored in the CBC's approach to the ethics in this case. Incredibly, Canadaland reports that CBC even refused to acknowledge that Murphy works on The National.
Google this to find out some facts about the lack of mainstream coverage and kudos to Canadaland for this piece of citizen journalism.
