A desperate man took hostages at the WCB building in Edmonton to get a public hearing about his perceived mistreatment by WCB. He phoned the CBC newsroom to air his issues.
On CBC radio "The World at Six" turned it into a story about journalistic ethics! Should they or shouldn't they air the grievances of the hostage-taker?
Apparently they don't think they should as the news was soley about the CBC reporters dilemma. Nothing about the hostage-taker's grievances.
This isn't ironic. It's psychotic.
(And I don't mean the hostage-taker.)
