CBC Success… But At What?

From the outside, CBC TV seems to be on the rebound (at least no one seems to be calling for its demise of late). But. “As often with CBC, it’s hard to match the visionary rhetoric with the pedestrian prime-time reality. In a world where viewer votes set CBC’s values, perhaps Mary Walsh sweating to the oldies really does represent the broadcaster’s best definition of greatness. If you can’t do insight, settle for incitement and see if anyone can tell the difference.”
