More CBC lopsided reporting on Yemen

There is very little evidence that the Houthi rebels in Yemen are receiving significant, if any, military support from Iran. But CBC chooses to pretend that the conflict in Yemen is a proxy war between Iran and Saudi Arabia. This is just nonsense, with no basis in fact. Why does CBC echo this propaganda nonsense without providing a few FACTS for balance?

Here is today's headline:

U.S sends warships towards Yemen amid concerns about Iranian weapons

Iran is the problem. Always Iran is the problem. This is nonsense. It is Zionist nonsense and USA nonsense, but why does CBC echo it?

In the article there is this quote, again without any balance to point our how ridiculous it is:

"We have seen evidence that the Iranians are supplying weapons and other armed support to the Houthis in Yemen. That support will only contribute to greater violence in that country. These are exactly the kind of destabilizing activities that we have in mind when we raise concerns about Iran's destabilizing activities in the Middle East."

Is this said tongue-in-cheek? Is he serious? Probably he knows he is spouting bullshit, but why does CBC let him get away with it without some attempt at balance?

If there is "destabilizing" coming out of Yemen it is clearly the Saudis and the USA that are creating the bigger problem, not IRAN.
