State of media becomes campaign issue

Well, glad someone is raising the issue about corporate conglomerance, shrinking newsrooms and whither CBC on the federal election campaign trail, even if it is only Elizabeth May of the unelected (as yet) Green Party. A nice screed, fitting in nicely with her exclusion from the leader’s debate. However, she’s calling for hundreds of millions in new funding for CBC. I’d rather see a nation-wide review of the role and relevance of CBC, particularly television, in the 500 channel universe. I’d also like to see some discussion of the role and relevance of the 27-some platforms the CBC (radio, web, tv, international, French/English/north etc.)
