Canadian Taxpayers Forced to Subsidize Anti- Israel Propaganda
When it comes to reporting on international news however there is a special sort of journalistic malfeasance that this taxpayer funded media outlet is prone to.
In matters of Israel and middle east security the CBC regularly distorts and even fabricates reporting to put the state of Israel in a bad light. The current PR expedition be US president Obama has provided a perfect example of the bias and outright ignorance of the CBC news staff and its producers.
False Claims of Vandalism in Israel ...
In the reporting of the POTUS visit the CBC aired video of a street lined with posters showing Obamas face painted over with red X's. The problem is that the CBC claimed this was from the location of their on the scene report (Jerusalem) and they claimed that this vandalism was perpetrated by Israelis.
Both of these claims by the CBC are patently false.
The pictures used were from a street in the West Bank and there is no evidence to support the assertion that the vandalism was perpetrated by anyone other than the Palestinian Arabs of Ramallah.
**Further investigation shows these posters to be signs put up in Ramallah by the Arabs.**
Yes it is a small and petty thing. But that is what the CBC represents to Canada and the world.
The problem is that we are forced to fund this propaganda through a $1.4 billion annual tax subsidy.
