The lobby group called Friends of Canadian Broadcasting -- they really just represent the CBC -- are whining that their new commercial is being censored.
The satirical ad accuses Prime Minister Stephen Harper of killing his critics, showing a couple of one-time advisors to the prime minister being drowned because they dared to tell him to "lay off the CBC."
It's meant to be funny, but given that Russian President Vladimir Putin's best known opponent was just murdered in broad daylight, is a commercial like this really tasteful or amusing?
Yet this is how the CBC reacts to even minor cuts in its budgets:
By putting out ads equating the Canadian prime minister with the worst kinds of fascist dictators.
