CBC INFORMATION MORNING DENY THE RIGHT TO CHARLES TO SPEAK WITH PREMIER SHAWN GRAHAM!!!
WOW!!!! New style for the CBC or the Premier’s office????
I was told yesterday that Premier Shawn Graham was going to be a guest on an open line talk show on Fredericton Information Morning,
I got up early and had my coffee.
The Premier was going to be on at 7:10am.
I know there would be lots of calls because we don’t have any talk shows in New Brunswick.
I called at 6:58am and got through.
This guy Richard answered and politely asked me if I would call back because the Premier would be on in 10 minutes.
Fair game! I did just that!
I quickly found out the lines were jammed but luckily I got through at 7:20am.
The phone rang and rang and rang.
Finally Richard answered the phone at 7:45am and asked me what issue I wanted to talk about?
I said- Ritalin!!!
He said - Can you call back?
I quickly replied - Do you believe that this is not an important issue?
He insisted that he’ll call me back.
I was surprised by this answer because this meant that I wasn’t allowed!
I gave him my phone number but he never called back!
It’s funny because I phoned these talk shows for years and always behave.
Rogers took the huge step in stopping New Brunswickers from calling talk shows and now CBC is doing the same???
There’s something funny going on here?
Maybe it was the Premier’s office who gave the orders because the same happened with Bernard Lord as premier.
Are these the same people with Shawn Graham who were with Bernard Lord?
As you know? I have great praise for the CBC but to deny certain New Brunswickers the right to speak on a talk show is a huge step backward for the CBC!!!
There you have it???? I finally wrote something critical of the CBC!!!
One thing is certain? I will let Premier Shawn Graham know that someone could be in his office denying New Brunswickers the right to speak to the Premier.
Is Tim Porter still around???
