Canadian Broadcasting Corp. Issues Blog Rules, Then Says It Didn’t

Ah, Canada. The CBC tries to herd cats, by way of issuing guidelines for employees’ personal blogs. From the proposed rules:

Further, the blog cannot advocate for a group or a cause, or express partisan political opinion. It should also avoid controversial subjects or contain material that could bring CBC/Radio-Canada into disrepute.

Why go through all the fuss? Maybe the CBC can just issue would-be bloggers with pre-approved posts, written by professional bloggers, paid for by the Canadian government. Guaranteed to be chock-full of Canadian content.

Back pedaling at a furious rate, the acting EIC says it was all just a suggestion.
(For purists asking what this has to do with Los Angeles media, the answer is nothing.)
