I would say that the CBC firing their entire publicity department
is a positive development, except for the obvious next step:
Hired less than a year ago, Bozzo was asked to operate the promotion department "more efficiently and effectively," he says. He was given a target of $1.7 million in cuts to his department. Even after factoring in the new cost of outsourcing publicity, Bozzo says these moves will still save the corporation $864,000. The full $1.7 million, he says, is being reallocated to programming.
Bozzo hopes to announce exactly which firm has won the outsourcing contract in a few weeks. He said he hopes some of the fired employees land jobs with the private firm.
Outsourced, you say. Perhaps to some Liberal-friendly ad agency, maybe? Where oversight of public funds wasted by Liberal Toronton media cronies will be even less?
Honestly, it's like they're just taunting us, now.
