Veteran producer, Tara Henley who recently resigned from the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, claiming that the network “had abandoned journalistic integrity,” cited similar ongoing problems in the American media.
In a blistering account to Fox News Digital, Henley explained her action.
“My focus is Canadian media, but I do read quite a lot of the American media as well,” she said.
Henley described the media as “polarized.” She added, “I think on both sides of the spectrum, the working class needs more voice and more representation, and it troubles me.
“We’re not talking to enough people and the views are very limited. They’re very narrative-driven, and it’s not healthy for democracy,” she contended.
At the center of the argument is “wokeism.”
“I have no problem with the woke worldview being in the room,” Henley said. “I think that we should reflect that view, but it can’t be the only voice in the room.”
This was amazingly reflective of a former resident of the Soviet Union who described the American Corporate media as “reminiscent of Pravda,” formerly the official newspaper of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. It was about advancing an agenda.
Americans obviously got a taste during the 2020 disputed election as American corporate media was accused of advancing a single narrative. Those who differed were described as “conspiracy theorists.” In the S0viet Union, they would have been labeled “counter-revolutionaries.”
Henley identifies herself as a “liberal.” In her definitive resignation announcement on Substack, she described a newsroom that was smothering in far-left ideology that stifled critical thinking and was overly obsessed with race. She blamed “a radical political agenda that originated on Ivy League campuses in the United States,” further substantiating many states’ call to “pull the plug” on sending monies to these schools.

Henley pointed out that the ideology had “spread through American social media platforms.”
“Proponents monetize outrage and stroke societal divisions for setting the tone of current media outlets for CBC,” Henley related to Fox News Digital. She added that that too many newsroom decision-makers were products of “prestigious universities” who contributed to the creation of the issue.
“I mean, this used to be a working-class profession,” Henley lamented. “This is now an elite profession. And we in the media are living alongside and working alongside and having our kids go to school with the other elite. How can you possibly be adversarial when you’re in the same world? Our job is to question.”
Henley’s resignation and explanation have gone viral internationally. She lauded “a love for speaking freely” as a key reason why she had chosen the profession.
“I think the most heartening thing about this experience is hearing from our fellow journalists. I have been getting so many messages from across the country and now, around the world,” she said. “These people represent very different political persuasions and I have been incredibly heartened to hear that we’re all wanting a better media.
“We are all wanting a media that reflects more views, that includes more people that talk to more people across our countries,” Henley added.
