Reviews released

Since my last post I have completed and released three reviews.

One review concerned a complaint that a story had not been updated following an Israeli army investigation that concluded a Palestinian woman had died under different circumstances than originally reported. I did not find a violation of CBC Journalistic Standards and Practices, but concluded there was room for improvement in updating the story without compromising programming standards.

A second review concerned a complaint that CBC Television did not include a cautionary notice from the federal auditor-general about a leaked version of a report from her office about G20 expenditures. I did not find a violation of standards and practices but concluded there was room for improvement in including the information.

A third review concerned a complaint there was a conflict of interest involving a journalist whose brother was a candidate in the federal election. I did not find a violation of standards and practices but concluded CBC needed to refine its policy in this area.
