Union 'disappointed' by comments from CBC boss on Ghomeshi allegations

Sam Colbert writes in the Star:
"The Canadian Media Guild says it is “deeply disappointed” by comments from a CBC boss on the handling of allegations against Jian Ghomeshi ahead of an independent investigation.
"A statement released Friday by the union said Heather Conway’s account made “pained efforts to exonerate management and its handling of the matter.”
"Conway, the CBC’s head of English programming, spoke publicly for the first time about Ghomeshi in a pair of interviews on the broadcaster’s programs The National and As It Happens on Friday.
Conway described the CBC’s version of events that led to the firing of the Q radio host on Oct. 26. She explained that CBC management became aware of allegations against Ghomeshi in April, when the host approached them to explain that the Star was looking into accusations of abuse.
