CBC/Radio-Canada launches study to evaluate breadth and depth of its news
coverage


OTTAWA, Jan. 22 /CNW Telbec/ - To enhance and build on its reputation
as a leader in Canadian journalism, CBC/Radio-Canada today announced
it is embarking on a study to evaluate the breadth and depth of its
news content. The study will also gauge Canadians' expectations of
the public broadcaster's news services. This independent study will
be done by a third party and the results will be made public.
"Given the proliferation of news sources, Canadians are more
demanding than ever when it comes to trusting what they see, hear and
read," says Hubert T. Lacroix, President and CEO of CBC/Radio-Canada.
"As a public broadcaster, we are quite rightly held to a higher
standard by Canadians. We are expected to lead the way with respect
to transparency, impartiality, credibility, and accountability."
CBC/Radio-Canada will use the information gained from this study to
continue its efforts to remain the most credible news source in the
country and a standard for broadcast journalism everywhere.
The study will build on CBC/Radio-Canada's existing journalistic
accountability measures, which include a published set of Journalistic
Standards and Practices
(http://www.cbc.radio-canada.ca/accountability/journalistic/index.shtml)
and the services of two ombudsmen
(http://www.cbc.radio-canada.ca/accountability/ombudsman.shtml)
to deal with issues of accuracy, integrity and fairness.
CBC/Radio-Canada has also made public the independent evaluations of
its coverage of the recent federal election.
The report on CBC News coverage, prepared by ERIN Research, is
available at:
http://www.cbc.ca/news/viewpoint/vp_cruickshank/pdf/Final2008FederalElectionERINRepor
t.pdf

As for Radio-Canada, the report produced by the Centre d'étude sur
les médias is available at:
http://www.radio-canada.ca/misesaupoint/index.asp
To ensure that it reflects the reality of its specific markets,
CBC/Radio-Canada will conduct two distinct studies, with the same
objectives, focusing on its English- and French-language news coverage,
respectively.
