War, what War?

I can understand the main CBC network broadcasting the opening ceremonies of the Olympics, but why on earth is Newsworld (ostensibly the 24-hour news arm of the network run on money confiscated from taxpayers) simply running the exact same coverage, when there is a major war going on in South Ossetia? Even the BBC is covering it now. I gain no benefit from having two channels with the exact same feed.

And I will give CNN credit - they are on it too.

Maybe the problem is that the whole news and sports staff of the CBC were sent to Beijing so nobody is left to carry out the network's claimed mandate.
