Um, what a day yesterday. I’m scrolling through tweets…and…huh? Jian Ghomeshi? Fired? Huh? Suing the CBC? Huh? Where in the world did that come from? He was just taking some time off for personal reasons. And then Jian Ghomeshi put up his own statement saying why he thinks it happened, and…then things got interesting for sure.
I shouldn’t do this, but I can’t resist. Soundtrack time…just take the S off.
Oh look, what’s that? The gates of hell? Opening up and I’m being dragged in?
I’m still just sort of confused and my head is spinning…but apparently there’s a massive screaming outcry. I get it, he’s Jian Ghomeshi, everybody loves him.
But but but…
we don’t know all the facts yet, as this story points out.
So before we condemn the CBC, why don’t we just sit back and wait? We don’t know where the guilt or the innocence belongs.
I gotta give CBC credit for reporting on it this morning…let’s hope they can keep things even-handed as this goes along. It sounds, from a few accounts, that things are kinda awkward, kinda stressful and kinda weird there this morning.
And that song will be in my head for the day.
