I find it just appalling that the late King of Saudi Arabia is somehow depicted as a proponent of women's equality (CBC radio, for example) when anyone remotely familliar with this brutal regime knows that the Saudi regime may well be the most misogynist country in the world.
The Harper regime is currently arranging for massive selling of arms to Saudi Arabia. Is the CBC now simply a transmission belt for the government's point of view? Blechh.
I don't know how these reporters can function. They must be suffering from cognitive dissonance.
