CBC: Ignoring 9/11 once again

Even on 9/11 itself, I was disgusted with CBC's coverage of the events of the day... now, in their radio newscast tonight, they've once again downplayed the catostrophic events of that dark day in order to spin their story their way.

They were talking about the Annapolis Conference that's getting underway, the first full-blow Mid East peace talks in many years. During the report, the CBC went through a list of events that have transpired over the last seven years that have made the prospect of talks difficult.

Here's their list... they mentioned the Second Intifada, the Hamas electoral victory last year, Palisinian infighing and the split of the Palistinian Authority, the Hezbollah/Israel conflict, a few other events I can't remember, and then, of course, the war in Iraq.

Not a singe solitary word about one of the most important events that has been a major driver of events in the Middle East in recent years... the barbaric act of hijacking four commercial airplanes, filled with innocent people, and then flying them into buildings in the middle of major urban centres.

And people wonder why I dislike the CBC so much... Content from Biased Canadians.

    I'll take your word for it on what they did and didn't talk about, but ever wonder why the last two POTUS' only got around to the ME problem in the dying days of their presidencies?

    I think that should generate equal outrage, no?

    Why should it be so outrageous QL that this problem is put off until the end of the term? It's not as if they would settle for anything short of marching the Israelis into the sea (or ovens, take your pick).

    It won't be solved because the ME governments need Israel so that they have someone on which to blame all the ills of their backwards little shit-hole countries. Get rid of the boogie-man Israel and the great Satan and who do you think these well-armed thugs with time on their hands will start looking at?

    Besides, I think that it's a big step that the US is even going down this road when you consider this:
