As part of its 7-8pm International news digest “Around the World”, CBC Newsworld has begun airing reports from Al-Jazeera’s English news service. HonestReportingCanada.ca’s Mike Fegelman has a great piece on this phenomenon, and an analysis of a recent greatly-biased report from Al-Jazeera’s Jacky Rowland, here: “CBC Whitewashes Palestinian Prisoners” . You can watch the segment as broadcast by CBC here:
Fegelman’s article includes the e-mail address to CBC’s audience relations department (firstname.lastname@example.org) and a call-to-action to protest this type of programming. I highly encourage everyone to act, to ensure Al-Jazeera doesn’t push through the mainstream opening it’s made for itself by getting its foot in the door.
