I’m not quite sure how Amanda Lang continues to have a job at CBC, as opposed to RBC

…but she does. (And, hearing that Raj Ahluwalia – a journalist of exceptional integrity – was on the other side of this latest CBC ethical mess renders, for me, Lang’s ongoing employment even more bewildering.)

Oh, and great work CanadaLand. Again.

“Last month CANADALAND reported that Amanda Lang took lucrative speaking jobs from insurance companies and then gave them positive news coverage on CBC TV.

That was nothing.

Multiple sources within CBC News have revealed to CANADALAND, under condition of anonymity, a shocking campaign Amanda Lang undertook in 2013 to sabotage a major story reported by her colleague, investigative reporter Kathy Tomlinson.”

Read the whole thing.

    As I’ve said time and again; “Mandy Lang is nothing more that Kevin O’Leary in a bra.”

    The woman is a shameless shill but she does it well. It’s so inconspicuous that she gets away with it. Which also makes her shameless. This is where I give that venomous slag, Anne Coulter credit. At least she’s a bile, fueled cow and embraces it. Lang, is more like a long term, invisible virus. Like herpes. On the surface she appears like everything is fine but lurking beneath the skin is a puss, filled blister.

      So how do we know Kevin O’Leary doesn’t like to dress up in drag? Someone so macho must have some secret hidden ladent tendencies (not that there’s anythring wrong with that).

    It really is quite upsetting. As Canada’s national, PUBLIC broadcaster the CBC should be better, way better than this. But they aren’t. I think the entire management structure at CBC needs to be blown up and rebuilt.

    I crack up when I see so many people think the current CBC is the ‘old true Canadian’ CBC. Don’t be so naive. It’s the Conservative Broadcasting Corporation. Corruption comes from the top, so it’s no surprise that when it’s run by the Cons, people within the organization think it’s OK to do what’s best for them and to heck with the rest. The Cons feed the culture of entitlement and, dare I say, they probably even plan it in order to erode Canadian interest in our ‘public’ broadcaster.

      Liam, Plus 1 and then some. The cons have been threatening the CBC since the were elected so all of this makes a lot of sense.

      That’s just about the stupidest comment I’ve ever read about the CBC. I sincerely doubt you could peddle that conspiracy nonsense in a room full of Liberals without at least half of ’em choking. And any Conservatives would be rolling on the floor and pissing themselves laughing at you!

      You must be a NDPer, eh?

      Nine of the eleven current members of the CBC Board of Directors – all of whom have been appointed by Prime Minister Harper – are or have been financial contributors to the Conservative Party of Canada.

      The Harper gov’t hue and cry over the CBC is nothing more than crocodile tears and empty bluster in order to soothe the base. They are the Trojan Horse and are now inside the gates. They will dismantle it from within while using it to promote their agenda. Watch how all the news out of CBC will support Harper in the lead up to the next election.

    I like Jesse Brown, he does great work, and this is a great A scoop.

    The only issue I have is the name of the podcast/blog makes me want to jam a pencil in my ear.

    I saw Amanda Lang a few months ago in a Rosedale nail salon (as I was waiting for my wife during her pedicure) and she was absolutely miserable looking. She had a scowl on her mug for about an hour, refused to get her nose out of her blackberry and even make eye contact with the woman doing her nails. She looks like a total b*tch in person and acted like one too. Fake smile, fake personality, fake everything.

    The CBC needs to boot her to the curb, she’s got a toxic and draining presence about her.

    As a former CBC on air host I gave speeches, rode in parades and hosted endless fundraisers for charity. All without pay, to help put our show into the community. Of course this wasn’t Toronto.
