CBC reporter Elizabeth Thompson recently had two articles on the truckers protest pulled after they were exposed as fake news yet inexplicably CBC news director, Brodie Fenlon, is still allowing her to be assigned articles that are associated with the truckers protest such as today’s “Budget will compel crowdfunding platforms to report suspicious transactions”.
I am asking for a full explanation from Brodie Fenlon on his decision, as any ethical news organization would never allow such shameful journalism. It appears very much like an intentional breach of CBC’s journalistic policies by Fenlon due to his political biases.
How many articles does Thompson have to get pulled before she is disciplined or fired? Does that amount depend if the target is someone or group who oppose Trudeau? It certainly looks to be the case.
