While the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. claims to have editorial independence, its coverage is suspiciously China-centric.
Mainstream media outlets in Canada have been doing backflips to defend the Canadian prime minister after it became public that he got elected with a little help from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
Recently, the state broadcaster CBC published an article titled: China election interference investigation could cause more anti-Asian racism, communities warn.
The article, which conveniently omits the name of the author, writes:
“As Ottawa launches investigations into claims China interfered in two elections, some members of the Chinese diaspora are warning about an increase in anti-Asian racism, while others say racism could be used to hinder the search for the truth.
As anti-Asian racism has spiked as a result of the pandemic and as the Sino-Canadian relationship continues to be strained, many question the effect of the investigations on the Chinese diaspora.”
While concerns around “anti-Asian racism” may have some basis, the article misses the point of investigating CCP interference in the first place.
Undermining the importance of the investigation, and trying to paint genuine concerns about foreign state interference as “racist,” is typical of Trudeau’s broadcaster.
CBC has long faced accusations of having a left-wing bias. Receiving funding from the government has lead to many Canadians, including politicians and influencers, to question its impartiality.
