The CBC had a segment on BlackBerry going private and it’s very negative as usual. The entire video is filled with sound bites about the company going under and clips such as B-Roll footage of people walking out of an empty room with a BlackBerry exec left by himself. The video looks like it was produced by some state propaganda department and doesn’t have much in the way of balanced coverage. Here’s a theory: the CBC doesn’t have the capability of having a balanced viewpoint because nobody there fully understands the industry. Government subsidies have turned its employees into a bureaucrats who are more concerned with politics and pensions than hustling to get a news scoop. Anyways, check out our buddy Simon Sage, former editor of BlackBerryCool and now Mobile Nations editor talk to them about the potential sale.
