A MIRACLE! CBC’s General Manager of Programming agrees with complaint filed against Mark Critch

Below is the response from Sally Catto, General Manager of Programming CBC Television to my complaint filed with the CBC Ombudsman against Mark Critch:

Dear Mr. Skoreyko, 

Let me start by thanking you for taking the time to give us your feedback with respect to the issue you’ve raised regarding Mark Critch.

There’s no question that our on-air personalities are, in the public’s eyes, brand ambassadors for CBC and they bear a special responsibility in upholding CBC values, including on their personal social media profiles. Clearly, that didn’t happen here and we have brought this to Mark’s attention.

We continue to monitor this and note that there have been no further tweets on this subject from Mark.

Again, we appreciate your feedback.

Sally Catto

Don Cherry is a valid counter-point.

He may have been told what not to write on twitter but that wont stop him and others from using there shows as platforms for their anti-conservative rhetoric

Wrong. Don Cherry was constantly going around calling Liberals – left wing pinkos, etc. Guess what? I don’t give a shit. It’s meaningless and I have more going on in my life to not waste time writing cry baby letters.

Nice job Paul Cerniuk. Meaningfully put.

Says you. Like the meaningless pic of Rob Ford leaving a KFC? Like the meaningless non-gender-segregated speech Joe Oliver was supposed to make at that men’s club in Toronto? Meaningless like Tommy Douglas’s thesis on eugenics, or meaningless like Taliban Jack’s naked rub at the Velvet Glove? Or do you mean meaningless as Pierre’s son extolling the virtues of Chinese dictatorships or perhaps the same Liberal claiming he’s the best man for the job simply due to his being a Quebecer? Wow, that’s a lot of meaningless things the left wing politicians you support are guilty of. I’m pretty glad you don’t get to decide what’s meaningless around here. I wonder what your opinion of “meaningless” would be if Don Cherry decided to get personally involved as much as Critch has become, only for the Conservatives instead of against them? Bet you’d find meaning in that…

Maybe you should realize that Dean actually filing a complaint about Critch is laughable and entirely worthy of being mocked. It’s amazing the meaningless things that consume uptight conservatives.

happy to see they acknowledge the fact on paper

Thanks for the grin fk CBC – fkg communist douche bags.
$1B in tax dollars finances this nazi pig Mark Critch and his work for the liberal/enn-dee-pee nazi pigs. Brutal.
You’re a POS sally catto.

So sally catto, did Ghomeshi lift your skirt up too and cop a feel?? How was that?? Andy do overs??
commented 2015-08-27 09:59:06 -0400
Clearly this is not enough.

The offence was made on social media, hence the retraction must be made on social media.

Mark Critch must acknowledge his transgressions, withdraw his comments, and apologize on social media.

Jimmy; smarmy much? It’s like you lay down in front of us wearing boxers, spread your legs, and invite us all to have a kick. Maybe sometimes you should just listen to that little voice in your head pleading with you to just STFU, you know?

“But he’s Canada’s Jon Stewart!”

The Ghomeshi-Solomon School of CBC Values strikes again.

“And all is right with the world again.” Until the next time it happens. And next time, and next time, and next time… gets the picture!

And all is right with the world again. Thank God for people like you Dean.

“Uphold cbc values”??? Are they referring to the cbc values of lying, mocking, yellow journalism, and upholding their rabid anti-Conservative agenda? Thought so.
