On a "Red Eye" segment from the March 17 show, we covered an item on the Canadian military's proposed synchronized break.
Being a comedy show, the point of the segment was to humorously discuss the concept of a year-long break. Since then, however, we've received messages accusing us of denigrating the fine work of Canada's soldiers.
Let me make this clear: "Red Eye" has never been anti-military.
On the contrary, we are one of the most vocal supporters of the brave work done by those who defend their countries, particularly those fighting side by side with American troops on the front lines of the War on Terror.
However, as a light-hearted show with a satirical point of view, we sometimes go over the line. And in this case, I obviously did not intend to offend your national pride and love of military service.
