This week Andrew Mitrovica, journalist teacher, former CBC Fifth Estate producer and current iPolitics reporter takes a metaphorical hatchet to the rhetoric at the CBC. Rex Murphy, Peter Mansbridge and Amanda Lang have all had brazen responses to what should have been embarrassing scandals this year regarding their acceptance of speaking fees from big business they are supposedly objectively reporting on with Canada’s publicly funded broadcaster. Andrew talks about the stories including his own contributions on this weeks show. With journalism as the topic, we discuss the implications brought up by Mr. Mitrovica with co-hosts Kevin Farmer and Stefan Hostetter.
