Stephen Maher calls out Sun TV for it’s trumped up charge that CBC is in the porn business. He also draws attention to the initial common sense and calls-it-like-he-sees-it-credibility of Heritage Minister James Moore who refused to take Sun News bait and pointed out that Sun News was simply shilling for it’s owner that wants the CBC out of the French Language Market so he can launch his own venture.

Credibility that, unfortunately, disappeared under threat. After the Sun ran an editorial calling for Harper to fire Moore the Minister abruptly flip-flopped, calling on the CBC to review it’s online content.

All this over a show called Hard, which is hardly pornographic — it depicts the struggles of a woman who, after her husband has died, discovers that he’s been funding their lifestyle with a pornography business that she takes over.

It’s hardly pornography. In fact, it’s pornography in exactly the same way that Sun News is a hate mongering propaganda station of the right wing. In that it’s not. You have to take things out of context to make either of those things seem true. Which of those statements is taking things further out of context I’ll leave you to decide for yourself.

Final delicious bit of irony that Maher points out? Sun Media, the company Tories are falling all over themselves to defend and support as it battles to rid the CBC of Smut: unrepentant porn peddler.
