Last week, during its coverage of the mass murder in Norway, CBC television was interviewing their “security expert,” Bill Gillespie.
There was a lot for Gillespie to talk about that day — whether the confessed killer, Anders Breivik, was part of a larger organization, or why a Muslim terrorist group had claimed responsibility, etc.
But Gillespie also seems to have had other things on his mind that day — Jews. So when he was asked about extremist groups he said this: “The Jewish Defence League is a banned terrorist organization in Canada.”
That’s not an opinion; it’s a statement of fact.
The CBC said the Jewish Defence League (JDL) is a terrorist group.
Except it’s not true.
