Tony Burman, please put a letter in my file that says I can work here until whomever is in charge changes their mind

No surprise that Burman would go through such a pitiful and meaningless gesture as to assure these two veteran reporters that their jobs were secure.

CBC management has confirmed that it is not renewing the contracts of two of its star veteran foreign correspondents, Don Murray in London and Patrick Brown in Beijing. [...]

However, Tony Burman, the former editor-in-chief of CBC News and now managing director of Al-Jazeera’s English-language news service, said... that a letter placed in the correspondents’ files in 2006 said the renewal of their contracts would continue until both reached 65, still a few years away. There is a stipulation in the agreement, though, that these renewals would remain subject to senior management approval.
