Censorship Be Damned

Conservative pundit Ezra Levant goes on the warpath, vowing to spearhead a campaign to abolish the hypocritical Canadian Broadcast Standards Council. The council, in a clearcut conflict of interest, allows journalists from rival broadcasters to not only file standards violations charges against their competitors, but also to sit in final judgment on whether any ethical infractions have occurred. Needless to say, the targets of complaints are usually conservatives, while the council turns a blind eye to comparable punditry by liberals, and in a truly bizarre and offensive example cited here, tolerates a most egregious case of hate speech voiced by a bigoted imam. In the face of these kinds of double standards, the council, which is little more than a censorship board, ought to be abolished. Chinga tu madre, indeed.
