BNN: Copyright infringement, or a case of expunging the public record on Harper's income trust fraud?

This is absurd. BNN thinks that statements made on their public airwaves by Canada’s Minister of Finance and Opposition Party Finance Critic are subject to copyright protection? What a joke.....of a network.

And yet we seem to want even MORE private megacorps running our lives. The shit that passes as news in America, is coming here soon. It's a wonder there are still great news agencies in the world, like the BBC.

We have laws for accuracy in advertising, yet we allow blatant lies (or cover-ups) to occur in the media.

Sad, isn't it?

Amanda has been busy by looks of things.

I hear that she has to buy Chapstick by the case as a result of all of the Flaherty butt kissing.

This is called "Pimping the news for Da Man".

Sometimes a pimp just has to do what a pimp has to do, and sometimes the pimp just has to get somebody else's babe off the street. You know, there are only so many Jimmy, Johns, and Ministers that drive by every night.

What a joke. BNN should be happy that someone is actually watching ther Bonehead Nonsense News (BNN) network.

How about asking for persmission to post those videos here?

What a sad day for freedom and democracy. Its incredible that this level of censorship is actually happening in Canada.

It's not censorship... BNN asked youtube to remove all the unauthorized BNN content.

Pretty quick to assume conspiracy though!
