Enough is enough it's time to get down to the nitty gritty.
In my other thread I explained how Canwest Global Tv's broadcasting of Jack Van Impe Presents breaks CAB Code of Ethics clause 2 and clause 8 as well as the Television Broadcast Act (5b) which is the LAW. The program is nothing but right wing anti Islamic and lately anti Obama propaganda. I have been monitoring this show with much anguish I might add for over a year.
My 1st complaint to the CBSC was a year ago and still no decision. The CBSC also refused to take my latest complaint saying i had made others and this was the same, they cannot refuse a legitimate complaint says the CRTC. This was not a frivilous complaint, Van Impe said there is something wrong with Islam, they should lynch Kaleik Sheik Mohammed and drug addicts and alcoholics are sinners. The CRTC have opened a file for me and they know the CBSC has been slow to act and assure me that no Global empolyees will be on the 6 member panel. The thing is they are in the loop.
I am not waiting any longer.
I am going to start a private prosecution here in Manitoba and do an end run around the CBSC. I've been doing some research and I don't think it's that difficult. What I need to do is convince a prosecutor that that Global Is Responisble for what they broadcast. Never has Global TV said that Van Impe's message was NOT a hate message. Their defence has always been he can say what he wants and we can broadcast what we want because we use a disclaimer. Karen Clout who is in charge of regulatory affairs one stated in an email which i will put on my web site www.jackvanimpe.ca that she will contact Van Impe and ask him to tone it down. At the time I simply dismissed it as a smart ass remark then I came across the email a couple of weeks ago while preparing for my meeting with the director of the CRTC here in Winnipeg and that quip really ticked me off. She thinks I'm an idiot, see you in court.
I have a star witness, the CRTC. and perhaps the Muslim Society. I'll call as a witness Tim Jones the station manager in Winnipeg and Charolotte Bell who is vice president of Regulatory Affairs at Global and is a lobbyist for Harper! You see I relaize now I am up up against a cadre of evangelical neocons and their supporters. Van Impe's attacks lately have been focused on president Obama. He sounds more like Glen Beck, Sean Hannity or Sarah Palin than Billy Graham.
Van Impe doesn't get messages from his god he gets messages from Karl Rove.
Anyway this is how we force Global to capitulate, the program is not religious and I can prove it.
Any ideas welcome.
