CBC: False and pro Israeli narrative

The following message was sent to CBC ombudsman on August 11, 2014:

Dear CBC ombudsman
I sent the following web-mail to CBC News.
Please review it and make sure that future stories are accurate, balanced and reflect the reality on the ground.
————————–
Your report “Gaza conflict: Israel, Hamas accept ceasefire proposal” smacks of pro-Israeli bias. It is inaccurate and negates the existence of Palestinians who are not Hamas. The Palestinian delegation (including all the resistance organizations), headed by a Fateh member, is the one that accepted the ceasefire. Please stop spreading misleading Israeli propaganda. I will bring this complaint to the attention of CBC ombudsman.

Thanks for your attention
Hanna Kawas,
Chairperson, Canada Palestine Association

STOP THE WAR!
END THE SIEGE!
BOYCOTT ISRAEL!

Israel’s brutal assault on Gaza has been met with horror, revulsion and outrage by ordinary people in their millions. In Canada, our government has cheered the slaughter, while opposition MPs wring their hands with anxiety or remain silent in the face of war crimes.

Enough is enough.

It’s time for everyone who believes in justice, peace and human rights to stand with Gaza, and with all Palestinians resisting war and occupation.

The struggle for a free Palestine is now the struggle of our times. Help build the biggest protest for Palestine ever – in towns and cities across Canada and Quebec, and in solidarity with global protests all around the world.

Biased CBC Coverage‏

Letter to CBC News Vancouver Regarding Biased Coverage of local events regarding the Israeli aggression on Gaza

Letter to CBC News Vancouver Regarding Biased Coverage

August 1, 2014
News Editor, CBC News Vancouver
We believe that your coverage of local events regarding the Israeli aggression on Gaza has been biased as well as unbalanced.
We had thousands of Vancouverites that took to the streets in downtown Vancouver on July 3, 2014, July 12, 2014, July 19, 2014 and July 25, 2014 to protest Israeli war crimes and the complicity of the Canadian government in them. The July 12 rally was held in front of your headquarters in Vancouver, and the July 19 protest also marched to and protested in front of your headquarters for around five minutes. You did not see fit to report any of these actions except for a short reference to the “anti-Israeli” rally on the July 19 edition of the news.14:50 -15:15 (25 seconds)
In contrast, on July 27, 2014, a much smaller group of pro-Israeli demonstrators got extensive coverage with personal interviews about their feelings and opinions regarding what is happening (almost six times the coverage of the thousands that showed up for our rallies). 2:22 seconds.
We are having a rally this coming Saturday, Aug. 2nd at the Art Gallery and we will march to your headquarters at 3:15 pm. We are hoping to hand you this letter and have a delegation meet with you or a CBC representative to deal with this one-sided coverage that smacks of racism against the Palestinian people.
Hoping to hear from you,
Hanna Kawas (Chair, Canada Palestine Association) hkawas@msn.com
On Behalf of Rally Organizing Committee
