APPARENTLY, THE BBC has been hiring hecklers to crash on Conservative events in Britain. They are being equipped with microphones and watched by BBC-TV crews.
BBC: "This is a completely legitimate programme about the history and art of political heckling."
Tory spokesperson: "I do not believe that the BBC should be in the business of creating news."
Interestingly enough, the BBC also has the scoop here. It seems a bit strange to have a news organization report about itself.
Call me a cynic, but it wouldn't surprise me in the least if the CBC has done this before...
