Today, Thursday, feb 21, 2001, I watched your news at
10:00 a.m. Halifax time, and saw Neil MacDonald's report from Israel and the
Occupied territories. His report included the bombing of a Palestinian
broadcasting station for alleged incitement. He stated that incitement is there
and went on to quote incitement and racist remarks,made in the Knesset,
about Palestinians being snakes and should be expelled and treated like the
Kurds in Iraq. He finished his statement by saying " Or is that free speech?"
Interestingly, I watched your news report, an hour and two
hours later, at 11:00 a.m.and noon, Halifax time, and surprisingly
Neil Macdonald's report was amputated after his statement about palestinian
incitement, and cutting out his report about Israeli leaders' incitement and
racist remarks in the Knesset.
Is this " the free speech" he referred to or is
this " free CBC censorship?"
I think the Canadian public are entitled to have the
full picture and not a one-sided censored biased
