CBC needs to check its watch

In yesterday’s paper, the CBC had a glossy insert with a schedule for its main television broadcast of the Beijing Olympic Games. In small print at the bottom is this:

All times Eastern Standard Time. Schedule is subject to change.

Considering most of Eastern Canada is on Eastern Daylight Time currently, giving a schedule in EST seems kind of pointless, no?

    Speaking of things Olympic, I love the Globe’s Olympic blog: http://www.theglobeandmail.com/blogs/beijingblog .

    It’s funny, well-written, focusing on the behind-the-scenes stuff. It’s as much about the Globe’s own bloggers — and their cultural (and literal) baggage — as the Games itself.

    If comments — or lack of — is any indication, it hasn’t quite taken off, yet. Maybe a little too insular for some. I say it’s worth a look.
