An Odd Inference
In Googling, as part of an attempt to see if I could learn more about the CBC-CCA rift mentioned in the previous post, I discovered that the cbc.ca site featured an article on the subject and thought it worth a read to see whether it was slanted differently from the earlier tsn.ca article on which I had based my earlier post.
As it turns I do not see any major different slant in the article, but I did note a rather odd inference:
Not all viewers were disappointed in CBC's curling coverage.
Ratings for the Brier and Tournament of Hearts were up 15 per cent and 23 per cent, respectively, from CBC's broadcast the previous year.
Well, I watched as much as I could of both tournaments, and nobody could claim that I was not disappointed. So the existence of more people like me hardly seems to confirm the claim of the first quoted paragraph. After all, we had nowhere else to go if we wanted to watch.
