My beef against Ms. Mallick is not that she's a left-wing journalist. There's plenty of her ilk out there. It's not even the fact that she's the living embodiment of the most disgusting, hypocritical left-wing type - a chardonnay socialist who prefers to slam economic inequalities and rampant poverty from the comfort of her upper middle class mansion in suburban Toronto (an instant disclaimer: I made up the last one - I have no idea how much Mallick's house is worth or where she actually lives but I dare you to prove me wrong - I don't think you will be successful).
My main objection is that Mallick is breathtakingly, unequivocally stupid. That's it, folks. She is an idiot - plain and simple. If you don't believe me - search through "Let it Bleed" archives to find Bob Tarantino slamming her columns on regular basis.
At the same time, I am not a bit surprised that CBC has hired her - that's what being Canada's subsidized public broadcaster is all about: a safe haven for all kinds of rabid, crazy lefties. The only good thing is that no one actually pays attention to what comes out of CBC, save for Hockey Night in Canada and perhaps the National so Ms. Mallick should be get accustomed that she'd have to toil in obscurity, which I don't think this drama queen is really prepared for.
