Conservative MP Paul Calandra isn’t letting the CBC and Greg Weston off the hook for running false spy stories as he follows up today after giving them the middle finger yesterday (see here) with this statement:
Mr. Paul Calandra (Oak Ridges—Markham, CPC): Mr. Speaker, over the weekend, the CBC revealed the names of three NSA employees when its cameras panned across National Security Agency documents. In fact, the CBC has revealed leaked NSA document that have inadvertently disclosed the names of at least six intelligence workers it never intended to give away.
These documents were stolen by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden and sold to the CBC by Glenn Greenwald. Greenwald, the porno-spy, has said he would not publish the names of U.S. intelligence workers unless they were top-ranking public officials. Clearly that is not the case.
Not only is this information in CBC’s ethically illicit pay-for-news scheme false, but it is jeopardizing the security of individuals who, unlike the CBC, I will not be naming here today.
Why is furthering porno-spy Glenn Greenwald’s agenda and lining his Brazilian bank account more important than the public broadcaster maintaining its journalistic integrity?
