This should be invisible

CBC Apologizes for Mallick's Palin Smackdown

CBC News Publisher John Cruickshank issued an apology yesterday for posting columnist Heather Mallick's much vilified article on the cbcnews.ca web site.

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.
