I cannot believe just how much "on fire" CTV New's Lloyd Robertson & "CBC's News Peter Mansbridge are. These two fine gentleman & their broadcast teams are doing a masterful job in saying fairwell to the late New Democratic Leader, Jack Layton. CTV, CBC & other broadcasters are sharing camera feeds to ensure that only the best of the best in terms of camera angles & shots are being shown. Students of journalism need to take note that after October XXVIth, Lloyd Robertson will no longer be the anchor of the "CTV National News", ending a glorious XXXV (35) year run. So we should appreciate his journalistic talents while he is still around.
Peter & Lloyd are friendly tv news competitors, but also great friends. This combining of resources & respect IV eachother & the solemness of the occasion, a state funeral is wonderful. These two journalists & many others broadcasting Mr. Layton's funeral that at a time of rememberance & appreciation of Mr. Layton's talents, there is no need IV bickering or worrying about grabbing News Special ratings. No, their job here is to bring voice to how sad Canadians are with Mr. Layton's passing & heal the wounded hearts of folks in the Dominion of Canada.
