CBC has largely ignored the BDS campaign, which is understandable because CBC does not want to be supportive of Palestinian rights in any way, but today's article clearly showed how biassed CBC really is:
Israel wants FIFA to probe 'threats' that led Argentina to cancel Jerusalem soccer match
The headline could easily have read "Another victory of the BDS Campaign", but instead it was a litany of Israeli nonsense about how evil and duplicitous Palestinians are.
How ridiculous to quote Israelis saying the Argentinians only acted out of fear of Palestinian anger.
How ridiculous are the words of the thug Lieberman:
"It's unfortunate the soccer knights of Argentina did not withstand the pressure of the Israeli-hating inciters, whose only goal is to harm our basic right to self-defence and bring about the destruction of Israel," Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman said of the cancellation.
Why does CBC have ink and space to repeat absolute nonsense from such an evil man?
And as always when CBC does admit there is a BDS campaign, it needs to "balance" this reality with more Israeli nonsense.
Here the majority of the words are Israel's position:
Those advocating for boycotts, divestment and sanctions against Israel say it is a way to promote Palestinian rights through non-violent means. Israel says the campaign goes beyond Israeli occupation of lands claimed by the Palestinians and masks a deeper aim of delegitimizing or even destroying the country. It has formed a government ministry whose primary mission is to combat the boycott movement.
When CNBC reported on the South African boycott campaign, did they feel the need to always balance the story with the views of the white supremacists???
CBC makes decent Canadians want to hang their heads in shame that we pay for this kind of reporting with our taxes.
