CBC News must cut $7 million in costs AND (?) eliminate more than 70 positions.

“Canadians will be better served by these changes and will continue to receive their news with both the depth and context they demand.”
~ Jennifer McGuire, interim head of news

    I’m going to propose “messaging” to CBC Communications:

    “These cuts are significant and have forced us to make serious changes to the way we operate. We are finding efficiencies where we can, but we cannot maintain our current service levels, given this cut to our funding. Every Canadian who gets news or current-affairs programming from us will notice a difference. Were going to keep producing as many programs as we can, but until our revenues increase, were going to be doing less than you have come to expect from us. We know you want us to do more, and were working hard to raise our revenues so we can meet your expectations.”

    As a viewer, I don’t believe this to be true.
