Thumbs down CBC: The Trouble with Fake Guns

I saw this yesterday on CBC:

The Trouble with Fake Guns
Marketplace examines the growing menace of imitation handguns — BB guns and pellet guns that are made to look just like the real thing. As Erica Johnson reports, Canada's gun laws make it easy to own imitation handguns, and that's got police officers and others calling for change.


The link: http://www.cbc.ca/marketplace/

:shock:

Lol.

Can't they look at these issues with an objective point of view instead of a soccer mom point of view? Showing both sides of the situation?
Anyway I didn't see the doc, but I'll be watching it as soon as it's on CBC's website. Maybe they just made a controvercial synopsis to get more viewers and that it's more objective that it seems... That's CBC after all and not some commercial channel. Let's hope.

And at the preview in the end of this episode: http://www.cbc.ca/marketplace/2009/c...atch/main.html she shoots without glasses. Oh damn... speaking about something they don't seem to know.

CBC is very Liberal-infested, and you can only rule by fear. This has been proven true for millenia.

There is no such thing as unbiased media reporting, especially when advertising and public funding dollars are at stake.

I am glad that here in Canada we have so few problems that we can focus on pathetic issues like the availability of toy guns.
