In defence of the CBC’s new look

I know, it’s a dirty job, but somebody has to do it. In fact, it’s Peter McNelly, who has some good arguments in favor of the new look and more importantly the more in-depth journalism being offered on The National, as well as some damning stats on the Big Three’s major demographic, the over 55 market, which I’ve always argued is a good market to go to (rich, smart, more money to spend than young people burdened with debt.)

Also of interest in this article is a link to a blog of disgruntled CBC’ers called Teamakers. There’s a similar site for disgruntled ex-Sun staffers, which I’ve lost track of. There doesn’t seem to be any profession more disgruntled than ex-journalists.
