First of all, how can he tell when he's on or off? He's working in an open concept newsroom. So are you suggesting he should be politically correct everyday at work? That's impossible, and you know it. Note how the cameramen and producers count down to signal taping. So I'm sure half the times he's not even aware of the fact he's being taped. Also, so what if he's being taped, he knows it's not meant for public consumption anyway. I'm sure we've all goofed off on home video before, this is the same to me.
Obviously this is an inside job, somebody was out to get him. But I've also heard of the Christmas reel tapes. Obviously these clips were readily available considering how many people have worked there over the life span of Citytv.
Put yourself in Gord's shoes, I'm sure we would behave in a similar manner eventually. He's worked there for like 25 yrs, so he must feel pretty damn comfortable at his job. I see nothing wrong with it.......
The Gilmour clip is great btw.
