I don’t often get my CBC budget cut analysis from the sports section, but maybe I should.

From Bruce Dowbiggin’s take on the recent cuts:

CBC’s core business, its relevance to the public, would probably be in the following order: 1. News and current affairs; 2. Radio; 3. Sports; 4. Light entertainment. The problem with the current CBC is that its executive structure has the order reversed.

Though I’d quibble with Bruce’s list — there are news and current affairs programs on radio, for instance — this rings true to me.
