CBC caught running false Israeli-vandalized Obama poster story


Tsk, tsk… Honest Reporting Canada has outed CBC’s Derek Stoffel and Heather Hiscox for running a story about Obama posters being vandalized in Jerusalem:

On March 20 at 6:00am (EST), CBC News Network broadcast a tape-talk with anchor Heather Hiscox and Mideast correspondent Derek Stoffel. In introducing this segment, Ms. Hiscox incorrectly stated the following: “Get a load of that video from Jerusalem, you see Obama’s face spray-painted out…”

The CBC super stated: “No welcome mat for Obama?: Vandals deface signs along Jerusalem street”

Problem was:

In actuality, these posters were defaced by Palestinians in Ramallah in the West Bank and were not defaced by Israelis in Jerusalem as CBC has falsely reported. (see here)

Honest Reporting Canada has demanded CBC Editor-in-Chief Jennifer McGuire issue an on-air correction for this and reporter Sasa Petricic’s claim that Israeli PM Netanyahu has “avoided negotiations with the Palestinians…”.

I will update if and when this happens.

    O/T, since the opposition adores Kevin Page. I wonder why he has not done an audit on the money the CPC spent on reserves yet he is so hot and bothered about the F-35s.

    The CBC is a national embarrassment along with a total waste of our tax dollars. They invent ‘news’ to serve their agenda which is bashing Canada, our troops and in this case Israel. According to them our troops were guilty of “hate” plus being “war criminals”. The CBC/Radio Canada cannot be privatised soon enough. Let them promote their propaganda and rubbish on their own dime.

    O/T, a reporter ask one of those Cree Walkers “what do you want?” from the government I guess.
    The answer from the Indian kid ” I don’t know.”
    This kid who has no idea what he wants is the kind of kid the ndp like to use like a mop.

    Yuo Obama showed up in Israel, as welcome as a turd in a punchbowl

    Like I have been saying ” Evil roams in the hallways of CBC”
    Thank God that we on the outside can see right through CBC for what it truly is and know the reporters there have no freedom like we do. They do as they are told even though some of them think is lies or else ‘find another employment.
    CBC will destroy its own self.

    Hunter S Thompson famously said of televison;
    “It is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long and plastic hallway where theives and pimps run free and good men die like dogs.
    There is also a negative side to it.”
