CBC Apologizes for Mallick's Palin Smackdown
His desire to make amends is based on an assessment just released by CBC ombudsman Vince Carlin who, Cruickshank writes, doesn't fault [Mallick] for riling readers by either the caustic nature of her tone or the polarizing nature of her opinion. But he objects that many of her most savage assertions lack a basis in fact.
He goes on to explain:
Mallick's column is a classic piece of political invective. It is viciously personal, grossly hyperbolic and intensely partisan. And because it is all those things, [her] column should not have appeared on the CBCNews.ca site.
In a sign that Mallick's recovering from a gentle wrist slap, her latest column strays far from the political landscape and focuses on food and fat.
In other news, the NY Post has posted a video of Sarah Palin in a swimsuit pageant. Woot!
Oh. And then there's this gem of an interview on the CBS Evening News.
