Is the @CBCOttawa account being run by a teenage girl?
It was hard not to wonder after @CBCOttawa tweeted out that having Justin Trudeau and Barack Obama together at the APEC summit might "break the internet":
When I (and others) took to Twitter to criticize this frivolous tweet, some rushed to CBC's defense, saying the state broadcaster was just having fun.
The thing is: When the CBC "has fun," they're doing it thanks to over a billion dollars a year of our money.
For that, I'd expect serious, responsible news coverage, not something a tween would write about a boy band.
Now more than ever, it really is time to sell the CBC.
