I find it highly ironic, that in another thread, you infer that you distrust the corporations and their transmittal of news, citing only a public broadcaster can do it justice.  Yet, here, you are willing to accept only the corporation's side as a conclusive closure on the allegations.

Colour me cynical, but, this "investigation" was nothing more than optics. They knew they'd be under fire if they did nothing.  So, they "investigated" and terminated.  In my books, that's not the ultimate pinnacle of the issue.  At all.

Re: Paul Bliss

No, I am more than willing to hear Mr Bliss' side as well. If anything, he should contact Ms Christie Blatchford (who has spoken up for the men being accused by women) and do an interview with her.

He didn't commit a crime that should see him go to court and face jailtime, but what he presumably did was extremely unprofessional and quite frankly, gross. He still deserves the chance to offer up a mea culpa and then begin to repair his reputation if he wants to keep working in the industry. And I think people, including myself, can be very forgiving - men especially can understand sexual desire driving a person to do something stupid. Most men are able to recognize where to draw the line though, between flirtation/dating and harassment/inappropriate advances.

I'm willing to trust the corporation's view because it falls within the parameters of who is an adequate judge of this type situation: this is not a case of an ongoing predatory behavior like with Harvey Weinstein, just a one-time event. I don't think it ever needed to go to the courts, and even Ms Brown as said she didn't want that. So if the victim is fine with, there's no reason not to let them handle it.

Also, regarding the CBC, I didn't say ONLY the public broadcaster should deliver the news. I said I do not trust a world whereby ONLY corporations deliver the news. I want COMPETING viewpoints delivered by different sources with different agendas. As already noted, somewhere in the middle of all that, there's usually the truth.

Wouldn't he be better served turning to a competent PR firm rather than a bottom-shelf gadfly hack?

Re: Paul Bliss

Other than Steve Paikin, I can't think of any accused individual who survived accusations since the Harvey Weinstein outbreak. And Mr. Paikin survived only because his accuser is considered a flake.  While it may be true that the presumption of innocence is is foundational in the court system, it's not necessarily the case in the real world. However, we are now operating in a world where in the presumption of guilt is the standard. That's just not good.

Re: Paul Bliss

I just read that Paul Bliss is suing CTV along with the woman who made the accusation.

Interesting that I got this from NT1010 breaking news e-mail.

Another perfect example of abuse of the "breaking news" label.  Much like the endless "food recalls" that are sent out everyday, the public tunes out of these flagrant misuses.

Re: Paul Bliss

This will be settled out of court. He may get some money out of it, but his reputation is ruined. The truth - whatever it is - doesn't matter.

Re: Paul Bliss

I hope he gets EVERY penny. He's 100% and totally innocent 'til it's proven otherwise. Ruin a guy's career?  'Cause maybe?  If it's B.S...if Bell jumped the gun...7.5 mil is letting them off lightly.  I hope that you're entirely innocent Paul. I have absolutely no reason to believe otherwise. Go get 'em!!!


The less 'Cyber Space' knows about me the better.  As a result I do not use my real name.  I would be willing to use yours' though.  No?  OK then.  So you 'get' it.  We're good.
