CBC tracking federal Ministers’ refusal to be on The Current

CBC is making a big deal about the number of times Harper’s Ministers decline to go on The Current. As usual, the CBC seem to feel it has a God-given right to call in a Cabinet minister or other guest whenever it wants to (I once had a reporter ask me, seriously, to call a physician out of heart transplant surgery because he, the reporter, was on a deadline. I declined.) Anyhoo, it’s a good long read, but the best part is the comment at the end: the CBC brass themselves rarely venture out to speak to the media, and only do so under tight conditions.
