Letter to CBC Ombudsman: Fake News Reported Yesterday

Fake News Reported Yesterday

I was driving through Manitoba yesterday and listened to the news on CBC Radio. The article in question was about the White House expelling Russian diplomats and imposing sanctions. The presenter referred to supposed Russian gov’t hacking that supposedly influenced the US election as though it’s a proven fact that this occurred when there is zero evidence to support this claim. At the very least the presenter should have included the qualifier “alleged” before the dubious claim in question. Reporting unsubstantiated rumours as though they are facts is misleading and wrong, and I’d like to expect better from the CBC.
Please inform me by email of what actions are taken on this matter.
Thanks.
