Neil Macdonald Exploits CBC News Platforms to Attack Israel

“It takes a pretty fertile imagination to correlate a story about alleged political bias at the IRS and sexual abuse in the U.S. military to the Middle East conflict. Leave it to CBC reporter Neil Macdonald, a self-appointed pontificator perched from Washington, to twist unrelated world affairs stories into criticisms of Israel.

In an analysis piece published on the CBC’s website on June 6,Macdonald included the following irrelevant smear against Israel and Canadian support for the Jewish state (emphasis added): “In Canada, do Stephen Harper and his most partisan supporters actually think, down deep, that Israel may actually bear some of the blame for its troubles with the Palestinians?”

Apart from being gratuitous, this question disguised personal opinion as news by phrasing declarative statements into questions.
