Is Repeating a Lie Lying?

Canada's disgraceful Prime Minister and moronic Foreign Minister Baird tell a lot of lies on the Middle East.

CBC often repeats these lies without making any effort to reveal them as lies.

Some are obvious lies. For example, twice CBC quoted Harper as saying that Iran has stated a desire to use nuclear weapons. There is absolutely no truth to this claim. It is not only a lie, it is a war-mongering lie that is intended to get people killed.

I have asked the Prime Minister's Office for the proof of this statement, and they completely ignore my repeated requests. It is an obvious lie.

Can CBC be accused of lying to Canadians if it broadcasts obvious lies, even if they are attributed to our disgraceful Prime Minister?

More recently Baird is quoted by CBC as saying the "Hamas started the current bloodshed in Gaza". This is an asinine statement, and bares little relation to the truth. Again CBC believes it is worth broadcasting widely without pointing out how baseless and war-promoting this claim is.

Does CBC only echoes lies that fit its bias?
