As you know I have as of late blasted cknw for engaging in yellow journalism..
Last week cknw news department inserted into a news story about Dominion Bond Rating service`s latest assessment on British Columbia, in the news blurb cknw stated..and I quote..
"Dominion Bond rating service is reporting BC`s credit rating could suffer if the NDP are elected in May`s election and make a lot of changes" snip.
In the report written by Dominion Bond Rating Service nowhere was the word "suffer" used, it was deliberate inflammatory statement employed by a partisan(by order of their corporate masters) newsroom..
I wrote a post, I called cknw and their later newscasts, future newscasts on cknw dropped the word "suffer"...
That post is here..
A day later cknw was at it again, they fabricated a story about Moe Sihota, they reported it completely wrong, again, I called them up and complained, I also wrote a post about the true story on Moe Sihota...
cknw should be ashamed of their silly games they are employing, it won`t change the upcoming election results...The shocking Moe Sihota story is here..
You would think cknw had learned their lesson, apparently not, and I don`t care about their freeped online question of the days, BC Liberal`s public affairs bureau have been regularly messing with the question of the day...Today`s question is..(April 5th)
CKNW's Question of the Day
In terms of fiscal responsibility, which party would you trust the most?
|BC Liberal Party|
|BC Green Party|
Interesting eh, BC Liberals are 25% percentage points back of the NDP and are about to be reduced to a dozen seats...and cknw and BC Liberal`s public affairs think they can fake out the people..Oh you silly corporate pigs..
Anyway, this post isn`t about any of those issues...Today on the Bill Good show, at about 8:45 a.m to 9:00 am..
Bill had on a guest who is in the LNG game, Bill Good asked his guest if "they were worried about the NDP winning the election", his radio guest stated this...I`m paraphrasing(for a reason)...
Guest--No, not at all, whoever is in Government won`t deter the industry, whatever projects go forward, any investments made will happen under either Government.....
Then Bill Good asked the guest .....
Bill Good....What is you best estimate of how many LNG plants will be built in BC...
Guest..Well, Bill, there is a real possibility of 3 LNG plants to be built by 2020..A small one for about $2 billion dollars and possibly two larger ones...
Well well well, one small LNG plant($2 billion dollar investment only)and maybe 2 larger LNG plants by 2020...Interesting no?
I`ll tell why it is interesting, the last desperate argument Christy Clark and Rich Coleman are using to scare the public is...
(The NDP will scare away investment and LNG projects won`t happen under that party, the NDP are against jobs, against investment....)
And more, Christy Clark and Rich Coleman have been blathering about 6 7 8 even as many as 10 LNG plants in British Columbia by 2020...Bill Good`s guest totally debunked that estimate, and his guest rebuked the last argument Christy Clark and the BC Liberals are clinging to..
Now here is the real gist of this story....I normally don`t paraphrase, I like to use exact quotes, and I had planned on doing so,...
I went to the cknw audio vault for April 5th(today)...I cued up 8:00 a.m. and hit play....To my surprise a message pops up, the message says..
"file not found"
Gee I thought, how timely, the one argument the BC Liberals are clinging to was totally debunked by Bill Good`s learned guest, this spokesperson ripped Christy Clark`s estimate of how many LNG plants are to be built, and more importantly this learned guest rejected completely a collapse of the LNG industry if the NDP wins the election, Bill`s guest said it didn`t matter who won the election..
So I thought, maybe the cknw audio vault is malfunctioning, however, if you cue up April 5th 7:00 a.m hour. ...That segment is there on the audio vault...And if you cue up April 5th 9:00 a.m. hour..That segment is there too..
The 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. segment is gone, how can the cknw audio vault lose a whole hour sandwiched between 7:00 a.m. and 9:00a.m. segments which function fine on the audio vault???
I called cknw, I made the complaint, the receptionist patched me through to a person who is in charge of the cknw audio vault, all I got was an answering machine, I left a message as to why I was calling, I asked, in my message if the cknw audio vault for that hour isn`t available could I get a written transcript, that was 2 hours ago, no one has called me back..
If and when the cknw audio vault is restored I will remove this post...My gut tells me this post will be permanent..
