After the Brexit vote came out in favour of Britain leaving the EU, the Media Party was furious which explains why CBC’s Harry Forestell thought it was ok to call one of the Leave’s top figureheads a “liar” on Twitter:
It might explain why Forestell had this outburst but it doesn’t excuse his behaviour as he actually broke the CBC’s own journalistic standards, for example:
Policy 2.2.21 Code of Conduct
Respect for People
Treating all people with respect, dignity and fairness is fundamental
Respect for Democracy 1.3 Providing decision makers of CBC/Radio-Canada with the information, analysis and advice they need, always striving to be open, candid and impartial. (see here)
Now, what are the odds of Forestell being disciplined by the CBC?
