CBC Lockout Watch, Day 6.2

Tod Maffin's I Love Radio is reporting that locked-out CBC workers are setting up an Internet site to podcast news and current affairs programming.

As much as I don't miss them and their product, I have to give them credit for doing something productive instead of marching around on picket lines.

It might also force management to up the ante and improve its programming in the interim if they lose viewers and listeners to the guerrilla station. And if they don't, they can figure out that they've been paying these people to do jack all these years, fire the lot and start again.

In any event, watching CBC's arrogant management take on an equally arrogant Canadian Media Guild will provide hours of family entertainment.
