Canada - CBC Off Air and No One Cares

I'd be willing to bet the same thing would happen if BBC employees were locked out.

OTTAWA (CP) — Most people didn’t notice the on-air disruption caused when 5,500 CBC workers were locked out of studios across Canada, a new poll indicates.

Ten per cent of respondents to the Decima survey said the labour dispute at the public broadcaster is “a major inconvenience” while 27 per cent called it “a minor inconvenience.”

Sixty-one per cent reported no impact at all.

It would be a huge impact to the world if the BBC went off the air. The anti-American, anti-Israeli and anti-war bias coming from Britain would be greatly reduced. And that would be a good thing for the world.
