CBC's Anti-Alberta Bias

Once again Don Newman interviews Ezra Levant on his Politics Show when it comes to Alberta Politics. And once again Ezra asserts that Albertans are 'genetically' disposed against Liberals, which is the flip side of his assertion, and those of other right wing historical revisionists in this One Party State, that Albertans are genetically disposed to vote Tory.

Levant also deliberately refuses to make any reference to the NDP in this province which happens to have four sitting MLA's , and has been a force in provincial and federal politics since the founding of the CCF in Calgary.

I am getting a little tired of the Don and Ezra show, which is an attempt to belittle Albertans as right wing red neck's when this province has a history being red, and it ain't just our necks.

I am asking fellow progressive bloggers from Alberta to email the CBC and protest about Don Newman only using Ezra has his 'voice of Alberta'. There are a wealth of other commentators available who are not so partisan and biased. And if we have to have comments from the right, then how about some fair and balanced perspective with someone from the left.

Of course the hypocritical, batshit nuts, Wiener Prattles would never allow such a comment on his own blog..err blogs...I mean, quality not-blogs. File that complaint yet, Weenie, or was that just more of your regular blustering nonsense?

I think this is a good idea, actually. Newman could at least shuffle between somewhat reasonable Tories and wingnuts like Levant. I guess stereotypes are more fun.

Or he could have on Graham Thompson of the Edmonton Journal, Don Braid of the Calgary Herald, or Ricardo Acuna of the Parkland Institute.

I have removed Werner's offensive post where he called me a F'ing commie since he as decided
to blog about my post anyways.

Good idea to get to Don Newman directly and suggest to him to be more balanced about the Alberta voices. Here is some interesting contact info:
