I’ve told you before about Canada’s CBC — the national TV and radio broadcaster supported by millions of extorted taxpayer dollars, even though only roughly one taxpayer in 12 watches or listens to it.

I can’t possibly improve upon the “gotcha” over at my fellow Canadian blogger Stephen Taylor’s site today. First, note the photo chosen to accompany the story above. Now, read Taylor’s commentary, in full:

You can actually see snow on some branches.

I know CBC has a whole drawer full of stock photos of anti-Israeli protests but c’mon.

Who knows: maybe someone at Reuters got fired and ended up at the CBC…

But wait: there’s more! Barry Rubin writes:

On June 1, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) anchorman Peter Mansbridge stated that the Gaza Strip “has one of the world’s highest infant mortality rates.”
