A media watchdog group gave its first “Dishonest Reporting Canada” award to a Canadian Broadcasting Company reporter. CBC reporter Neil Macdonald, whose repeated negative references to Israel have triggered on-air clarifications and an admission by a CBC ombudsman of a perception of bias, took the “prize” sponsored by HonestReporting Canada. Sacha Trudeau, son of former Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, was a runner-up for “The Fence,” a nationally televised documentary about Israel’s West Bank security barrier that romanticized the leader of the Al Aksa Brigades in Jenin as a “skinny renegade” on the run from Israeli ambushes.
