In your opinion it was. To others, it was not. The difference here is, she did nothing to warrant a complaint other than rubbing some people the wrong way with her interviewing style. She didn't swear, drop her clothes, physically assault her guest etc. This is simply people who don't like her personality and style, complaining about it to a govt. agency which is ludicrous. If you don't like it, come on a forum like this and have at her. To report it to an agency and deem it not worthy of being on Television is a whole different animal. It's a free country last I checked and if you don't like what somebody is saying you don't have to listen to them. That's the problem here. Busy bodies who want to impart their views on everybody else. Yeah they have the right to complain; too bad they feel the need to complain about something as trivial as this.
First of all, the CBSC isn't a government agency. It would be really nice if people complaining about "the government" took a minute to first understand if what they're complaining about is actually part of the government or not.
Second of all, it's not a "free country", when it comes to having a broadcast license. You're required to follow certain rules. You're required to follow more rules when you voluntarily join the CBSC, as Quebecor has.
Third, the CBSC is there to handle complaints. The entire point of it is that if someone doesn't think a broadcast was within CBSC standards, they have every right to complain to the CBSC about it. That's why the CBSC exists. That doesn't mean the complaints are valid, and the CBSC hasn't ruled yet. (Stephane Dion's infamous ATV interview was a case where the CBSC ruled against ATV for breaching ethics, but not all complaints are found to be valid.) It's pretty clear in this case the complaint numbers were spiked by people asking their friends to complain, but if the CBSC does its job correctly the number of complaints won't affect the investigation.
Finally... this whole thing is highly amusing considering Quebecor is trying to get hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars to build an arena so millionaires can play hockey, from a "journalist" (and I use the term very loosely) who got into the industry on the taxpayer funded CBC and who now works on a network that tried for months to get the CRTC to use government power to force cable companies to carry their station no matter if it was wanted or not.
For them to scream about government arts funding is such a joke that it's no wonder Sun TV has less credibility then the National Enquirer.
