Once Again

The CBC provides free advertizing and information clearinghouse services to promote lunatic protestors.

They did this during the G20 summit in Toronto, too, providing a complete list of all the various NGOs and their contact info.

CBC is not the only media guilty of this sort of collaboration. Numerous times over the past 15 to 20 years, when a big international political or economic summit takes place, all they do is cover the inevitable lunatic fringe protestors that show up.

(It's amazing how many of the same people show up, too. It seems they have the cash to travel all over the continent and, in some cases, even to Europe.)

Not once have I seen or heard an interview with the summit participants, who could actually describe what's going on. Instead, the media caters to the crazy ones and only speculates on what might be on the agenda inside where the meetings are actually taking place. Just once it might be nice to hear from one or two actual participants (delegates) from the countries that attend.
