They’re just words

Apparently this posting on the Canadian Association of Journalists list-serv has prompted more attention than it likely deserves. I’ve been ignoring it, chalking it up to too many people with too much time on their hands over-analyzing and over-parsing the last paragraph in particular, but it was suggested we throw it out for you all to comment on, too:

Subject: [caj-list] TVO Host

TVO in Toronto is looking for a fill-in host for its flagship current  affairs interview program, The Agenda With Steve Paikin.

The successful candidate will fill in for the program’s host  approximately once a month and for summer programming. The role  requires first class in-studio hosting and interviewing skills and a  thorough grounding in Canadian and international current affairs. It  includes occasional hosting of live town hall debates.

One of the program’s goals is to be reflective of the changing  demographics of Ontario and Canada. Qualified candidates from a  diversity of backgrounds and cultures are encouraged to apply.
