CBC Our World

  • Jan 17 2008: Apology – According to a senior editor at CBC: “On November 27, you wrote to draw our attention to a statement you feel is “either intentionally misleading or extremely ignorant” on the November 24 edition of CBC NEWS: OUR WORLD. In introducing a documentary by the CBC’s Don Murray, program host Brian Stewart said, in part, Israel was created “beside territory long regarded in the Middle East as Palestinian.” I fully understand that the issue about who has the more established history in the territory and therefore the better claim to it is a particularly controversial one. He might have better said, “…long regarded in the Middle East as theirs by the people who lived there.”
