The "Bill O'Reilly of Canada"

FYI, the Truthdig website for which Hedges writes posted this video underneath a header calling O'Leary the "Bill O'Reilly of Canada," a reference to the right-wing, obnoxious Fox News commentator who regularly excoriates, insults and belittles his "liberal" and "left wing" guests.

If the publicly-funded CBC ever tires of O'Leary's bilge, I'm sure he'll find a welcoming home at Sun News Corp., a.k.a. "Fox News North."


I have always been a donater

I have always been a donater to the CBC but it just shows since Stephen Harper and his gang have been in it is getting no better than Fox News.  This is what they want so people will give up on Public Broadcasting. You only need to go to Russian TV 505. or Aljazera 513 to get the news of the world and what is really going on in this corrupt world. Sincerly Audrey Howe
