Review released and two reviews under way

Since my last post I have released one review and launched two others.

The review concerned a segment on the CBC Radio program, The Current, on the dispute between the Canadian women's soccer team and the Canadian Soccer Association.

The complainant argued that the segment was biased and was pursuing an agenda. CBC Radio disagreed.

I concluded there was no violation of CBC Journalistic Standards and Practices but there was room for improvement in the segment to provide more context. I noted it would have been useful to follow the story when the dispute was resolved.

I have agreed to conduct two other reviews. One concerns imagery on a promotional clip for a pending special report on CBC Television's The National. One concerns segments on CBC Radio's The Current involving the quest for Palestinian statehood.
