Journalist Tara Henley revealed how the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) went from being a “trusted” news source to “producing clickbait that’s a parody of the student press.”
After resigning from CBC, Henley wrote an article in which she revealed how leftist politics and ideals cloak the public broadcaster forcing journalists to abandon their integrity.
“To work at the CBC in the current climate is to embrace cognitive dissonance and to abandon journalistic integrity,” she said in the article posted on her Substack blog.
According to the journalist, CBC became a window for the radical left
Henley charged that the media outlet forced her to fill out racial profiling forms for each guest, making sure to contact more people of some races and fewer of others.
“To work at the CBC is to submit to job interviews that are not about qualifications or experience — but instead demand the parroting of orthodoxies, the demonstration of fealty to dogma. It is to become less adversarial to government and corporations and more hostile to ordinary people with ideas that Twitter doesn’t like,” she charged.
Henley described the nightmare she faced while working for a left-wing media that “while the world burns” prefers to cover up important issues in order to put social change on the table.
“It is to consent to the idea that a growing list of subjects are off the table, that dialogue itself can be harmful. That the big issues of our time are all already settled. It is to capitulate to certainty, to shut down critical thinking, to stamp out curiosity. To keep one’s mouth shut, to not ask questions, to not rock the boat,” she said.
