Janine Bandcroft, the publisher of Left Coast News and Events, received a rather blunt response from Corus Entertainment Inc.'s national program director Ross Winters after distributing an email criticizing the mainstream media's coverage of the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games. In a message sent on Tuesday afternoon, Ms. Bandcroft links to a video that she says includes information about the Olympics that is "censored daily by our own 'state' or 'corporate' media! let's make this the last olympics !!!" But that plea didn't seem to sit too well with Mr. Winters. "what a bunch of crap," he replied "bring on the olympics and many more." The following is a copy of that email exchange.
