CBC Ombudsman Says Teenage Journalists Who Criticized Transphobia Violated CBC’s Journalistic Standards

An internal CBC review of a youth current affairs show has concluded that a group of teenage journalists violated CBC’s journalistic standards when they unanimously criticized transphobia without giving equal airtime to other “viewpoints.”

RECAP, which is described as a “digital-only news roundup show,” posted a video earlier this summer discussing a widely-reported backlash over transphobic tweets from Harry Potter author JK Rowling.
