How Quickly They Fall...

CBC host Evan Solomon is out. 

Not sure how CBC can even claim to have a code of ethics, but whatever.

"His job as host of two flagship CBC shows has brought him in constant contact with the movers and shakers on Parliament Hill. He frequently entertains at his Rockcliffe home and is often invited to dinners and events by Ottawa power brokers. To give back to the community, he is involved with the annual Riverkeepers charitable event, which raises money to protect the Ottawa River."

Seems like a fair deal, right?

It's also kind of strange that The Star is eating the CBC alive.

Kevin Donovan is an excellent and thorough investigative reporter, and I'm impressed that he has so much latitude at the Star.

I can't say I am crying any tears for Solomon.
