CBC Middle East correspondent tweets Israel bombed Gaza hospital and refugee camp

Stoffel 2

CBC’s Derek Stoffel has some serious explaining to do after shooting out this tweet quoting an anonymous CBC producer:


Because just 8 minutes later, Stoffel has to ‘admit’ he had no confirmation prior to sending it out:

This is massively irresponsible journalism and I’ve asked Stoffel to name the CBC producer he was quoting and will get back to you if he responds.

Also: Check out the correction the CBC had to make on Stoffel’s behalf after Honest Reporting filed a complaint on his story that Israel was building more Jewish homes in the West Bank here and running a false story about Obama posters being vandalized in Jerusalem here

    Sounds like this Stoffel fellow is definitely in the wrong occupation. News is supposed to be non-fiction. Maybe writing novels would be more his speed.

    CBC’s “News Programs” should come with a warning lable,
    “May contain nuts, errors, opinions all dressed up as facts, wilful misrepresentations of any Conservative initative or just plain s*** we made up to further the left wing narritive”
    Peter Mandsbridge, news reader, who makes 80 K a year lol, should intone at the end of the broadcast, “This is our version of world events/reality “

    May the Israelis should extend their Iron Dome over Gaza to protect the Palestinians from themselves.

    No link here but the hospital was hit by a misfired Hamas rocket and not the evil Jooooos!!11!!
    I’m sure the CBC will issue a correction ASAP.

    You know, it would be real simple for CBC to run with this and never get half the outing its currently getting.
    Just tell the government to keep its subsidy and allow it to go private…problem solved
