For those journalists who cover crime, what are their responsibilities as reporters interviewing the accused? How do they know if they’re being used by calculated manipulators, and if they are, should they still report it?

After 25 years at the CBC, tech columnist Jesse Hirsh decided to risk it all. During an interview about Facebook, he turned the tables, asking why CBC continues to promote Facebook as we've seen what that company has done to undermine democracy. CBC refused to post the segment online, saying it violated their journalistic standards and practices. Hirsh's future with the CBC is unclear, but the incident raised a lot of questions about what you can and cannot say on our public broadcaster.

Aboriginal people make up over 4% of Canada's population, but less than .5% of Canadian news stories have anything to do with them.
