Shame on the CBC

I listen to the CBC. Seriously, I listen (or at least listened) to the CBC all the time in the car, I am a strong supporter of funding for public radio, and I have always believed that the CBC mattered. Now, I am having doubts.

They decided that Hockey mattered more than the Nova Scotia provincial election tonight. That pretty much kills them in my eyes. Hockey is entertainment, the election of the provinces government is real life. They scheduled themselves to cover the first two hours of the election and then planned to move over to the game, with coverage of the election moving to CBC newsworld, a channel only available to cable subscribers. So basically, if I don't have the money for cable I am too poor to know who my government is, but hey, gotta know what's going on the Stanley Cup right?
