There is no media bias (CBC edition)

Take a look at the CBC's coverage of the now (in)famous Downing Street Memo.

I especially like these two statements:
During a forum organized by the U.S. House Judiciary Committee held to investigate the implications of the memo, Rep. John Conyers said the document "means that more than 1,600 brave Americans and hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqis would have have lost their lives for a lie."
I believe what they meant to say by 'forum organized by the U.S. House Judiciary Committee held to investigate the implications of the memo' was in fact 'group of Democratic Congressman with no actual authority just looking to make a fool of themselves' (see this previous post for more). But hey, you know that darn CBC spellchecker, just can't say bad things about Democrats when the Bush administration is involved.

And at the end they have this little tidbit (emphasis mine):
But what is having an impact is the surging number of American soldiers killed or wounded in Iraq.
I don't know about you but the use of the term 'surging' definitely seems to display an obvious bias on the writers part. But I guess anything goes when a group of Democrats can have a mock impeachment in a basement conference room to call forward a witness to claim the Jews were behind Sept. 11 (or to be honest, he only claimed they knew about it and both didn't warn the US and modified investments to make a profit off it) and have it simply called a forum.
