The Latest Blunder By The CBC

We had the CBC on in our house this morning, and for the bit I saw on the events in Libya, the CBC spent the entire segment discussing the anti-Mohammed movie which was believed to have precipitated the latest Islamic attacks against the US.

Twelve hours later the media are now reporting that these attacks were premeditated and planned, with the movie providing a mere pretext. For me, the fact that the bombing of the consulate was followed by a rocket attack on the ambassador's car -- information available this morning -- was "the first clue".

Looks like the CBC has served as a propaganda tool for the Islamists. The Islamists laid the bait, and the left-wing media fell for it -- as did Obama White House, which issued a balanced statement denouncing the movie and the murderous attack in equal measure. And, the CBC stepped in it.

And that's the way the Ball bounces.
