More on CBC Lopsided Reporting

Compare headlines

When a report was published a while back finding Hamas guilty of war crimes, trumpeted this finding with a headline saying exactly that. But when Israel is found guilty of the same, this was the headline today:

The article was a disgrace as well. It attempted to balance the guilt of Israel and Palestine, when there was absolutely no balance. It was full of lying quotes from Israeli officials justifying the mass murder of children, as if these quotes deserved being treated with respect.

And look at the picture they chose to illustrate the article above. It shows the crimes of Hamas militants. But where are the pictures of children killed by Israeli crimes? This is not balanced or even honest reporting. It is simply disgraceful.

Where are you CBC?

Imagine how CBC would have reacted if an extremely historic Jewish building had been so terribly vandalized, and probably no one will be punished. Just imagine.

But for CBC this news was not even worth publishing, at least, online:



Israeli settlers attack historic Church where Jesus broke bread



19 June 2015


The human rights and Palestine solidarity organisation BDS South Africa condemns yesterday's attack by 16 Jewish Israeli settlers on the Church of Multiplication of Loaves and Fish. Any attack on a religious site is unacceptable but this Israeli attack on a historic site of such importance to Palestinian Christians and Christianity more generally is reprehensible.

The Church of Multiplication of Loaves and Fish near the Sea of Galilee in Palestine-Israel is on the site where Christians believe Jesus Christ performed the biblical miracle of feeding 5000 people with five loaves and two fish. The Church stands in the destroyed Palestinian village of al-Tabigha, ethnically cleansed of its indigenous Palestinian inhabitants by Israeli forces in the 1948 Nakba. The village is where Jesus is said to have plied his trade as a carpenter.

According to reports, the church building suffered extensive damage, with the roof partly collapsed and stone walls charred. Several members of the clergy suffered smoke inhalation, and one 80-year-old monk was reportedly hospitalised. Several bibles and prayer books were also destroyed.

Some Israeli officials have criticised the attacks, however, analysts are skeptical suggesting that no action will be taken against the Israeli settlers.

What is News?

On Sunday June 14, thought this was headline news:

Masada is a dramatic, historic setting for Israeli Opera

On the same day, MSN reported in a headline that an Israel jeep ran over and killed a 22 year old Palestinian man in the Occupied West Bank.

CBC thought the opera was more newsworthy.

The Opera story makes Israel look normal, when it is not. CBC is doing Israeli propaganda for them. Why?

No details? reported on the tragic killing of an Edmonton police officer by a crazed person who was apparently being charged with a hate crime.

But CBC never says what kind of hate crime was involved.

I may be wrong but I suspect that this killer hated Muslims. Perhaps he was some kind of crazed Christian Zionist.

If he had been a Muslim hating Jews, CBC would have trumpeted it from the highest hills, so I doubt this was the situation.

Also if he were a Muslim, Harper and his crew would be repeating endlessly why we need to kill Muslims in the Middle East because of people like this.

But if he is a Muslim-hater, then there is just quiet. No need to send in the troops to kill innocent people somewhere else.
