Say 'hi' to Peter Gzowski, Knowlton. And I really hope your wife bought you that sweater.

And another bit of my youth goes away.

Godspeed.

Knowlton Nash was a real journalist, I'm certain part of what killed him was the "news" as reported by outlets like FOX

/RIP classy anchor guy

I'd almost say he was Canada's Walter Cronkite.

I wish my American friends could see what Canadian news is like compared to their own. People like Mr.Nash helped make it what it is today.
Godspeed good sir.

I'm sure I'll get alot of disagreements but Canadian news reports the NEWS. Seems with American news reports even with a horrific event such as a mass shooting or natural disaster there always seems to a whiff of exuberance. I guess the fight for ratings will do that.

It's strange what an invisible geographic line can do regarding how people are informed. Canadians were told that Bush's claims of wmd's in Iraq was suspicious before the war even began. We were informed of the work Hans Blix had done and had no evidence to dispute his findings. An educated populace  was a major reason we did not go to war in Iraq as there was zero proof of Bush's allegations. Then you would turn to American news and every word the government said was taken at face value with a pervading sense, abetted by the media that it was un American to question it. I wish I could say things have become better after such a deadly lesson but sadly, from what I see, nothing has changed. Just hearing these continual claims that America has a "liberal media" makes me apoplectic, they are anything but liberal. It seems every panel of pundits has 3 conservatives and one liberal who can only get his point across by outshouting and out interrupting his right wing counterparts.

It's a sad state of affairs in America when Jon Stewart does a better job of covering the news than either 60 Minutes or the nightly news.

A mildly passive agressive acknowledgement of his greatness in comparison to other celebrity journalists around the globe will suffice.

Knowlton Nash comes from a past era when you'd turn on the news to be informed, not entertained. Hardly a handsome guy, Knowlton achored the CBC News because of his reporting and oratory skills, not his looks.

Years ago, his successor (and current CBC anchor) Peter Mansbridge was offered a sweet job on one of the US networks (it may have been Good Morning America) BUT he was told he would need to wear a toupee (he's bald on top.) Fark that, Peter said, and he's stayed with the CBC. He would have made a lot more of those 'merican dollars had he donned a rug, but he's not doing all that bad at home.

Yes and thankfully Canada's laws against hate speech and reporting made up shiat as news are making sure it doesn't become a full-blown Fox News North. I like to listen to the right-wing whackjob station on Satellite radio for a bit of a laugh/scare and they like to use the repeated smack downs Sun News gets from the CRTC as proof of the tyranny of liberalism and socialism. If it offends Glen Beck and Sean Hannity to me that means the system is working.

add to that story that Mansbridge might still have made the jump south, if not for Nash hearing about it, and retiring, thus keeping a quality news man in Canada.

Sadly the American news has been that way for a long time.

CSB: I remember being 12 (1990) and watching the Detroit tv news with my grandfather. Someone had been killed in a drive-by. The body, bullets etc had already been taken away and the reporter was getting the camera-person to zoom in on the snow while describing the bits of skull, brain etc that were sitting on top of the snow.

My grandfather turns to me and says "You know... if that was a detective show people would be phoning in, protesting, etc."

It has nothing to do with me or anyone "feeling good" and is far from "cheap shorting America". If you cannot see the point I was making than it is truly your loss, not mine.
