CBC News Rosemary Barton: It seems like the executives at CBC TV have formula up their sleeves and her name is Rosemary Barton, whenever the executives feel the broadcaster is becoming irrelevant, all they have to do is think about her, it is true that CBS shouldn’t care in excess about the relevance of the broadcaster.

But the truth of the matter is, Barton is someone who has managed to generate intense attention and scrutiny which is rare in the broadcaster these days, in times of election campaign, the column received so many emails about Barton than any other person or show on TV.
On Monday, Barton anchored CBC’s long election night coverage with aplomb which received a good cheer, sometimes the pundits get grumpy over small things and you need to be able to control them, it is not an easy job, there have been so many interviews in which they oppositions are getting heated and many at times they make no sense, in such times Barton is the one who always comes out as the smart one and who acts as an in charge to make the debate free-flowing.

The mail which comes for her are mostly hated mails, Heaven only what she receives on a daily basis, it has to be said that she needs to be commended for staying so active on social media even after receiving all of the hate which she gets from the public, the mail which has come for Barton states,
Her biggest mistake is to interrupt powerful men in order to get a straight answer from them, she has some nerve, the woman clearly doesn’t know her place, she also gives this sceptical look at powerful men which is obviously seeking offence, misogyny seems to be the heart of the hate, the amount of scrutiny which has been aimed at Barton’s words during a long night coverage is just absurd.
There were comments which were being made on her personal appearance which would make anyone weep, much of the hate for her comes from the Conservative party, it seems like she becomes the centre of attention every single time, for us as a journalist you should be blunt and you should not fear anyone while you ask them about their fuck ups or about their statements which didn’t make sense, a journalist should call out the bullshit which goes on in the country.
It seems like she is a strong journalist and a dedicated one, many of people are getting pissed because most of them know that what she is stating and asking is right, it is just she is trying to expose the system and many of the powerful people are not at all happy with it.
