On Jan 11, following an HRC complaint, CBCNews.ca amended a misleading Jan 10.
On Jan. 3, the CBC Ombudsman partially upheld a HRC complaint finding that a November article by Mideast bureau chief Derek Stoffel ...
On April 18 last year, CBCNews.ca reported on a terrorist attack in Jerusalem with the headline, “Explosion aboard Jerusalem Bus, 21 hurt.” The next day, following HRC’s intervention, the headline was changed to “Jerusalem bus bomb blast injures 21.”
And in March, HRC was successful in having CBC change a headline, “Police kill 2 Palestinians in Jerusalem gun attack” which implies the Palestinians were victims, to “Police kill 2 Palestinian gunmen after Jerusalem attack.”
That’s a typical selection from last year’s beefs. According to Fegelman, who happily concedes that Stoffel is a fine bureau chief on the whole, and files many good reports, HRC submits “several dozen” complaints a year to the CBC.
