Amanda Lang, the CBC, and a little juxtaposition

  1. CBC Code of Conduct:


CBC/Radio-Canada employees shall serve the public interest by:

3.1 Acting at all times with integrity and in a manner that will bear the closest public scrutiny, an obligation that may not be fully satisfied by simply acting within the law.

3.2 Never using their official roles to inappropriately obtain an advantage for themselves or to advantage or disadvantage others.

3.3 Taking all possible steps to prevent and resolve any real, apparent or potential conflicts of interest between their official responsibilities and their private affairs in favour of the public interest.

  1. Amanda Lang’s journalism:

According to her colleague Kathy Tomlinson, Lang tried to sabotage a story about the misuse of the Temporary Foreign Workers programme by the Royal Bank of Canada. Lang herself spoke and wrote quite favourably about the RBC. She also received money for speaking appearances from two insurance companies who received pleasant coverage on her show.

Turns out she was literally in bed with the RBC since 2012.

  1. The CBC investigates:

The CBC clears itself and Amanda Lang after one of those “internal investigations.” Lang’s journalism, says the CBC, “adheres to the corporation’s journalistic standards.” No question, it seems, about that.
