“As for The National, it looked like it had just awakened from a ten-year coma. Gone were the endless headlines. Gone, the faux Wagnerian splendor of the old set with the anchor enthroned in some Valhalla of the gods. Gone the bloated, dull news reports delivered in what seemed an interminable 2:45 seconds or more.

And, most refreshingly, gone was the CBC’s patronizing ‘eat this, it’s good for you’ attitude toward its own journalism. In its place – a driving effort to get the news, to get it fast and to bring the audience into the story.”
