From Peter:
[T]his lockout is going to result in a sort of "dark ages" in terms of the digital fossil record. Our ancestors (our even ourselves, in a year) will go the CBC website to search for stories about things that are happening now and will find nothing. Worse, when our friends at the CBC are allowed to work again, they will have no audio or video record of news that's happening now. Which means that, in essence, nothing that is happening now is actually happening at all.

    ?! Pretty arrogant statement, don't you think? The CBC, much as I approve of its mandate, is far from being the sole providor of news on the planet. Those who seek the news from the "dark ages" need only seek that information elsewhere. Don't worry, my friend, I'm sure those CBC workers will be able to fill the gaps with the assistance of (gasp!) CTV or Global or the BBC or... For now, put the hyperbole away; it rots any argument you make.

    Since when did broadcasters start to search their competitors archives for "file footage"? That can be done for a price, and proper credit to the source. Despite what you want to believe, there will be a hole in the archives readily available future CBC use.
