CBC ONLINE STAFF CLUELESS ABOUT CANADIAN WEBSITES

I was reading this CBC.ca story about the various political insults that Canada's parties have been throwing at each other in the lead up to an election call. It was mildly interesting but then I came across this:

The Liberal Party of Canada, on an anti-Jack Layton website (www.liberal.ca/SayAnything/) set up to rebut Layton's anti-Paul Martin website (http://www.paulmartintime.ca/): "Is it Howard Stern? Is it Tom Green? No, it's the 'King of Shock,' Jack Layton. Tell us another one, Jack."

What? I didn't think paulmartintime.ca had anything to do with the NDP. Oh wait, it doesn't. A quick perusal of the site as well as the site of the NDP shows no connection between the two. One click of the mouse reveals paulmartintime is run by these guys. But anyone familiar with the Canadian blogosphere already knew that. The CBC needs to do its research.
