CBC News’ refusal to report the killing and kidnapping of Jews as terrorism leaves “room for improvement,” says a network ombudsman. CBC managers justified the editorial policy as an attempt at impartiality in covering October 7 Hamas attacks in Israel.

“If CBC were to describe events of that day as an act of terrorism it would be an accurate description,” wrote Ombudsman Jack Nagler. The Ombudsman said he received 307 separate complaints from viewers after the CBC referred to Hamas attackers as “militants” not “terrorists.”
