A CBC employee resigned from the public broadcaster because she says it’s become too woke.
The article she wrote about her departure has caused quite the buzz since it dropped. The National Post put it on the front page of the paper. Fox News, America reporter Glenn Greenwald, the British Daily Mail, and Canada’s Leader of the Opposition Erin O’Toole have all wanted a piece of this story.
But who the heck is the author, Tara Henley? And is any of this criticism warranted? Or is it a feeding frenzy for conservatives who are eager to jump on the “defund the CBC” bandwagon?
