Where can I go to watch old episodes of CBC's counterSpin?

I've been looking everywhere I can think of to find the old episodes of CBC's counterSpin (I've checked YouTube where there's only like a couple episodes, I checked the CBC archive which doesn't even make mention of it!, and everywhere else I can think of). 

Does anyone know where these watchable episodes might be out there in the Web?  I loved that show and there's one that I need to watch again.

on this person "David Jeffrey Spetch " and his racist/homophobic posts

maybe it's not even worth it, but in the interests of hopefully changing someone's mind (even if it's not the person who made the post but an impressionable reader) i'd like to see the person banned but the thread stay open so we can openly refute the bogus claims and info they're posting.

That way they can't contribute any more racist/homophobic posts but we can at least have a chance to respond.  I know when i read such utter nonsense i just feel a certain emotional need to say something!

Redneck Party USA

We have created a Grassroots Movement called Redneck Party. We take our name from the "Redneck War" of 1921. Google it! My people marched with red bandannas tied around their necks so they wouldn't shoot each other. Seriously though, amidst being called commies they were some of the most courageous and valiant Patriots of their day.

Eid Mubarak!

Eid Mubarak, friends.  Let me tell you what's been going on in my home today ...

Mr. Ripple and our kids went to mosque early this morning, dressed in their Friday finest.  Not being Muslim,  I didn't go, though would have been welcomed had I so chosen.  Instead, I made a fantastic breakfast - eggs, waffles, toast, sausage, hashbrowns, cantaloupe, strawberries, cherries, blueberries, green apples, coffee and juice. 

My son tells me the imam talked a lot about men and women and boys and girls being equal before God.  Women and men prayed side by side in the hall, many mosques coming together for Eid prayers.  Mostly, our kids played quietly with other children.
