A former CBC journalist – now a commentator – Neil Macdonald, who covered the Middle East had this to say in his support for journalists to have the freedom to criticize Israel:

‘And some of Israel's supporters abroad took nearly as dim a view of my craft. Pro-Israel media "watchdog" groups and other activists in Canada, the United States and the U.K. are quick to attack, characterizing reporters whose coverage they don't like as Israel-haters or anti-Semites, urging their readers to mount letter-writing campaigns. Their efforts have worked; many journalists and editors have come to understand that critical coverage of Israel can result at minimum in a professional headache, and at worst in career damage.’

(Call me radical, but journalists should be able to pledge support for Palestinian journalists: Neil Macdonald http://www.cbc.ca/news/opinion/cfje-statement-1.4620246)

The eminent Israeli journalist Amira Hass has referred to the BBC as a ‘Broadcaster in Israel’s pocket.’(My Interview With the BBC, a Broadcaster in Israel's Pocket

Should the same not be said for Radio-Canada/CBC?

None of the following abuses inflicted by Israel on the Palestinians have been or will be reported by Radio-Canada/CBC, Canada’s public broadcaster:
