Whether it be pushing the "we don't want a cure" views of the Neurodiversity camp as representing autistic children and adults, or pushing a false view of science, vaccines and autism , the CBC has pushed agendas of one side of very controversial issues without providing fair or any coverage of other views. In the case of autism the CBC now invariably ignores the views of parents seeking to help their autistic children through treatment and cure. And of course CBC journalists wouldn't think of leaving their offices to provide coverage of severely autistic persons who live in institutional care or otherwise won't or can't pose for media interviews.
I have a son who is severely autistic. Autism issues are, and will always be, of primary importance to me. With the CBC demonstrating such extreme bias and journalistic incompetence I can no longer trust this publicly funded Canadian media institution on any issues.
Freezing the salaries of CBC executives is a good start. Autism disorders are, despite the beliefs and agendas of the pro-Neurodiversity CBC decision makers, serious neurological disorders impairing the lives of 1 in 150 Canadians and their families. Actually dismantling the CBC, a one sided source of autism mis-representation, would be a great help to parents fighting to help their children overcome the challenges of autism spectrum disorders.
