Female Bias at the CBC National Imposes iPhone News Embargo

Obviously, one of the most important stories of the day in Canada is the realignment of Rogers iPhone data pricing. Instead of 300MB, $30 will now get you 6000MB per month. Wow!

The Téléjournal describes the Rogers new 6GB $30 iPhone promotion at 22:05, five minutes into it's news show. The CBC the National with Wendy Mesly, nothing! Not one peep. In fact, all the stories have a distinct female bias. Afghan female athlete in Italy; female model killed in China; leaky windows; The cost of texting; Online scalping!

How are those stories more important than the revolutionnary new data pricing announced by Rogers?

I look forward to Peter's return. And I hope the women working at the CBC get some needed male sensitivity training.
