Unintentionally Hilarious Line of the Day

I've taken the liberty of highlighting it for you (from the Winnipeg Free Press):
MONTREAL - The federal Conservatives are rejecting a demand by the CBC to withdraw file footage from the national broadcaster that appears in new Tory ads targeting their political opponents.

The Conservatives did not seek permission to use CBC content in three ads that were posted online and broadcast on TV on Monday, says CBC spokesman Marco Dube says.

''The journalistic integrity of CBC-Radio-Canada — of the national public broadcaster — and its political neutrality require that our material not be used in partisan advertising,'' Dube said Tuesday...
No worries there, Dube. If you ain't got it, you can't lose it.

Nope. But let's give the guy kudos for putting "CBC" and "journalistic integrity" in the same sentence while managing to keep a straight face. I for one would never have been able to pull off such a feat.
