7 interviewers CBC's Amanda Lang should take notes from

Rebel Staff

It's never too late to improve yourself!

Last week, CBC's senior business correspondent Amanda Lang was cleared of any wrong doing after a CBC internal investigation found she met their journalistic standards. 

Earlier this year, Canadaland alleged that Lang tried to "sabotage" a story on RBC and temporary foreign workers. Canadaland also exposed Lang was in a personal relationship with a member of the RBC board and had received money for speeches given at RBC, among other companies' sponsored events.

In light of Amanda Lang's questionable practices here are seven interviewers she should take notes from!

1.  Oprah Winfrey - Oprah is famous for giving large gifts, not receiving them.  Maybe Lang could reach "O" status if she began giving away her paid speaking salary.

2.  Robert Frost - One day Amanda could have a movie named after her if she focused on finding the big answers.

3.  Johnny Carson - A little bit of humour could make some of Ms. Lang's interviews more entertaining.

4.  Barbara Walters - A legend, Barbara's quest for the truth could clearly rub off on those in her footsteps.

5.  Howard Stern - Crass - yes. Controversial - yep. Popular - you betch'ya... Amanda and Howard have getting into hot water in common. Stern however, knows his audience well.

6.  Larry King - The CNN great was the best at keeping a casual but serious tone.  His half-goblin approach could help Amanda branch off to other platforms.

7.  David Skylark from The Interview - Amanda may fall into the "hatin' cuz they ain't us" group of Skylark's haters, but there's no doubt he can help Lang's career blast off internationally!

what does an internal investigation look like at cbc anyway? I mean, after the enabling of Ghomeshi for years………………. Why did she cover the story? Wasn’t that a conflict of interest? Oh, right. Mainstream doesn’t care about conflicts of interest, obviously, as they like to produce ‘news’ that is conflicting with the interests of many Canadians, like myself. The Chronicle Herald here in NS is getting as bad. I’ve said bye-bye to cbc, now it’s CH. Atv/ctv will be gone soon too, I’m sure. It’s all anti-Harper. Definition: Mainstream media (MSM) are those media disseminated via the largest distribution channels, which therefore represent what the majority of media consumers are likely to encounter. Mainstream media are those media generally reflective of the prevailing currents of thought, influence, or activity. Pfffttt…… (how quickly they forget those who DO support our PM who wasn’t, btw, voted in by merely 3 people). Full Definition of GENERALLY: in a general manner: a : in disregard of specific instances and with regard to an overall picture b : as a rule : usually. They obviously think the word ‘generally’ can be used so loosely.

Actually I think Amanda is the most intelligent well spoken woman on television today,, too bad she is surrounded by CBC people promoting the left wing media agenda, she has really no choice but to tow the line, if she worked somewhere else I think she could be Great.

I believe Mr. Wonderfull once called Amanda " THE BEST LOOKING COMMUNIST IN CANADA"

Such a shame. She’s good looking; I like her face. But alas, grace eludes her. Suspicion finds her.
