Ontario’s former attorney general Liberal Michael Bryant is currently on a media tour for his book 28 Seconds and besides being creeped-out by the thought of someone making money off a death they caused, I saw a Tweet that caught my eye:
So I asked Lang twice if this was in fact true to which she replied:
Think for a second how arrogant this statement is from a journalist especially one who must abide by CBC’s Journalistic Standards and Practices:
The trust of the public is our most valued asset. We avoid putting ourselves in real or potential conflict of interest. This is essential to our credibility. (see here)
I asked Lang if the CBC Ombudsman would agree that interviewing friends is an ethical practice and meets CBC policy?
Still waiting for her answer.
