I continue to be distressed to see the CBC producing what has to be the worst and shallowest local news programming in the GTA. They have slavishly followed a commercial format, deal with topics lightly and cater to what seems to be a low-brow audience.
The 90 minutes of 'news' is basically one - half-hour show repeated three times. Add to this a barrage of commercials every few minutes and you have a product that would be unacceptable to most commercial stations let alone a public broadcaster.
No wonder people call for the abolition of the CBC. When the commercial networks produce superior local news programming, I have to wonder what management is thinking.

However, they really should cut it back to an hour. There's way too much repetition. Just put it on from 5 to 6 and if we want to watch it later, well that's why the TV gods created PVRs.
