CBC apologizes for 'Harper-heil' graphic, says it was a bad cut-and-paste job
(Canadian) National Post ^ | Jan 26, 2006

Posted on 01/26/2006 10:20:12 PM PST by Murtyo

The CBC has apologized to a viewer who complained that a news graphic appeared to juxtapose the name of the prime minister-designate with the German word "heil" -- a salute usually associated with Adolf Hitler. The graphic was flashed during Tuesday night's edition of The National. It appeared beneath a shot of a Stephen Harper election sign. In an e-mail to the viewer, the executive producer of The National explained the graphic was a freeze frame of typing intended to promote the show's "campaign confidential" segment. An editor chose to capture part of the word "their" for the graphic and with a cursor before the "r", it seemed to spell heil. "We sincerely apologize for that," the e-mail said.

Reminds me of the "X" story and VP Cheney. The industry seems to be full of these idiots.

Just like the X's across Cheney a few months ago. The act gets old.

Yea, it's almost sad how obvious they are about their bias.

I could see, if it were almost anyone else but the parties involved, how this could be explained away as an "innocent mistake." But someone did this intentionally.

Of course the clowns have to apologize quickly. Talk about bashing your new boss loudly in public, and knowing that he will know it is you who did it, is a bad career move.

I think as time goes on and the "Main Stream Media" gets less and less important, they (the MSM) will become more and more obvious about their bias.

Okay. I watched it and I have judged for myself.
It was a deliberate and brazen smear job, and that "executive producer" is a liar and a scumbag.

How come none of these so-called mistakes ever happen to liberals? Coincidence? I think not.

Nothing will top that Republican TV ad from a few years ago where the end of the word "Democrats" ("rats") was accentuated in a subliminal way and somebody from the dark side noticed it and whined about it publicly. Now "rats" is a normal, everyday way of referring to the Democrats! Perfect!

At least the Republicans did it in a TV ad that they paid for. The rats, on the other hand, can just sit back and let their allies in the dying socialist "mainstream" network newsrooms do their dirty work for them. Gladly and for free.

I used to listen to Radio Canada Int'l (aka CBC) on SW. Before the last election, they had a round table with talking heads.
The "CBC" person said that if Harper gets in, "he'll cut your favorite programs on CBC, like this one...."

A Canadian Freeper said that the CBC brings that up against conservative candidates every election. Sounds like NPR/CPB...

I doubt that it was unintended. However, when Bush was first elected and being [verbally] attacked by crazed
Canadian officials, they did report that then-PM Chretien defended Bush by saying "George Bush is not an idiot.
He is my friend" and followed up by saying "Note to Mr. Chretien: Do not repeat the charge (insult?) when defending..."

Why do all these "mistakes" ONLY seem to happen to the more conservative politicans?

TRUE mishaps work fall more randomly on both sides.

Somebody's monkeying around with the end product and it ain't the neo-cons.

I still have my screen shot of CNN/Netscape on 11-03-2004 in which a picture of George W. Bush is titled "a$$hole.jpg" (with the letter "s" in place of the dollar signs). I can't tell you how many of my friends would not believe how blatant the bias is. They had their eyes opened when I showed them the image and it had a lasting effect, because every once in a while they'll remind me of that bias.

Harpers first act should be cutting the funding to that state-run POS communist propaganda mouthpiece CBC.

"An editor chose to capture part of the word ‘their’ for the graphic"

Part of the word "their" as a graphic? Does that make sense?

19 seconds of "Heil" makes perfect sense, considering the source.

Yup.

Sore losers conducting pathetic acts of vandalism to reflect their intoxicating anger.

Fools.

There have been several others (and they were posted to FR).

One had a girl with a W in her hair (at innauguration or a campaign speech) and the rollover said "brainwashed". That same day there was another one (possibly in the same article).

The liberal elites are mocking the masses. Giving them the finger under the table and hoping they don't get caught.

It reminds me of the Cheney montage a couple of weeks ago, The MSM is sickening.

Exactly. The "X" buzz. Liberals think they're being brilliant in trying to offend the greatest number of people possible. Conservatives=Nazis. That trope is becoming tiresome.

This is an excellect video exposing the CBC's leftist advocacy in the name of "news." Canadians are going to upset the Left's applecart of news monopoly if they keep this up on the interent! Has the Canadian Left outlawed this type of opposition as hate speech yet as they did with anti-homosexual sex speech? They will try with the help of the CBC to censure the internet in the name of ending hate speech.
