Tara Henley, a veteran news producer for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC), penned an op-ed for the National Post explaining the decision to quit her job. 

Henley states that the company is scrapping “journalistic integrity” for a woke “radical political agenda.” She elaborates on the surge of complaints regarding the dramatic shift at the CBC over the past 18 months.

“When I started at the national public broadcaster in 2013, the network produced some of the best journalism in the country,” Henley wrote. “By the time I resigned last month, it embodied some of the worst trends in mainstream media.”

She goes on to say that those who work at the CBC now have to “abandon journalistic integrity.”

“It is to sign on, enthusiastically, to a radical political agenda that originated on Ivy League campuses in the United States and spread through American social media platforms that monetize outrage and stoke societal divisions,” Henley said.

“It is to pretend that the ‘woke’ worldview is near-universal — even if it is far from popular with those you know, and speak to, and interview, and read.”

Henley claims that race is the most important matter at the network and that the CBC staff have to “accept the idea that race is the most significant thing about a person, and that some races are more relevant to the public conversation than others.”

The CBC did not immediately respond to The Post’s request for comment.

This week, WSAZ-TV reporter Tori Yorgey had an eventful night while giving her live weather report. 

During the broadcast, anchor Tim Irr tossed it over to Yorgey, but a car hit her before providing the information. Yorgey would get up right away and reiterated that she was okay. 

“Oh my God, I just got hit by a car, but I’m okay. I just got hit by a car, but I’m okay, Tim,” Yorgey said. “I’m okay; we’re all good. I’m okay; yeah, that’s live tv for you; it’s all good. I actually got hit by a car in college like that too.”

After the incident went viral, Yorgey went on Twitter to thank you for the well wishes and let those who were worried that she was indeed okay. 

“Wow. I am flattered by the kindness and well wishes. I am feeling fine, just a little sore! Thank you all so much,” Yorgey tweeted

“For the record [Tim Irr] couldn’t see what was happening in that moment. He is one of the kindest people I know and was first to call to check on me.”

Some wondered why Irr didn’t show much of a reaction after his colleague was struck by the car. The anchor took to Twitter to clarify that those in the news station only received the audio from the live report.

We are learning more about the events that led to the firing of former CNN anchor Chris Cuomo.

The New York Attorney General’s office released six hours of video testimony Thursday showing Cuomo discussing his involvement in advising his brother, former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, in his defense against sexual harassment allegations.

Chris Cuomo was deposed on July 15, 2021. Cuomo was fired in December over ethical concerns that he used his position at the network to influence the investigations into his brother’s alleged actions.

Cuomo admitted during his testimony that his brother asked him to stay “in the loop.”

“Chris Cuomo was suspended earlier this week pending further evaluation of new information that came to light about his involvement with his brother’s defense,” CNN said in a Dec. 5 statement.
