Questions You Should be Asking the World Around You
The incident happened last Thursday, not long after the 4 p.m. release of the CRTC’s so-called “pick-and-pay” decision, which will give consumers more freedom to choose cable and satellite TV channels. Analysts predict the change will be bad for the bottom line at BCE Inc., the parent company of Bell Media.
Shortly after the announcement, CRTC chairman Jean-Pierre Blais appeared on BNN, a Bell Media-owned business news station, for a six-minute interview with reporter Greg Bonnell.
Almost immediately, Mr. Crull called Wendy Freeman, the president of CTV News, according to sources close to the network who spoke on condition of anonymity. Mr. Crull told Ms. Freeman he was in charge of the network and that Mr. Blais was not to appear on air again that day, according to accounts of the exchange.
After the call, sources say, Ms. Freeman contacted CTV staff to tell them of the directive from Mr. Crull and not to use clips of Mr. Blais, telling some she felt she would be fired if they did not comply. Other CTV employees were concerned for their jobs, according to a source.
It’s strange that The Globe and Mail is trying to tell us that the President of Bell Media, and the President of CTV aren’t acquainted with each other.
“That a regulated company does not like one of the CRTC’s rulings is one thing,” Blais said in the statement. “The allegation, however, that the largest communication company in Canada is manipulating news coverage is disturbing.”
“Canadians can only wonder how many times corporate interests may have been placed ahead of the fair and balanced news reporting they expect from their broadcasting system,” the CRTC statement said.
CTV was instrumental in spreading false info about the civil war in Ukraine. You can search through this blog and find several examples where CTV, CBC, Reuters, and BBC condoned the actions of the Kiev military against Ukraine’s citizens in the Donetsk and Lugansk regions.
It is only a recent phenomenon, largely due to Merkel’s efforts in Minsk2, that the BBC has taken on a more neutral stance.
