CBC Ombudsman to do Internal Investigation


Recommended Posts

As I said earlier, the focus of the investigation was Krista Erickson. She was disciplined today and reassigned to Toronto where she is off the Parliamentary assignment.

Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reporter who covers Parliament will be reassigned because she inappropriately wrote questions for an opposition legislator, the public broadcaster said on Monday.

The ruling Conservative Party -- no fan of the CBC -- complained that television journalist Krista Erickson had given the questions to a Liberal member of a committee examining the dealings of a former Conservative prime minister.

"Our investigation determined there was no bias in related news coverage. However, our reporter, acting on her own, used inappropriate tactics as a result of journalistic zeal, rather than partisan interest," CBC publisher John Cruickshank said in a letter to the Conservatives.

He reputation of being extremely ambitious was cemented in her time in Winnipeg.

Also, on CTV's Duffy, they said that this reporter was also used ( lack of another word) by the Conservatives themselves which they didn't put out there. So both parties are guilty.
