The headlines mostly focused on one thing, CBC’s new president Catherine Tait, is a woman.
It does her long career in media a disservice to be frank. Tait has worked for decades in various aspects of the media in Canada and the United States, she has vital experience and that should have been the focus for people that care about the state broadcaster.
For me, what stands out about Tait the more I read about her is that she is a stereotype of what you would expect of a CBC head honcho.
From reports and public information we know that Tait supports left wing political causes and projects, is a Liberal donor and, as a producer, has made a bunch of stuff I’ve never heard of.
Isn’t that what you would expect of a CBC boss?
