The Globe's John Doyle slams CBC for slow Amanda Lang investigation

Excerpt from John Doyle's column:
"Brian Williams’s embellishments exposed and admitted, and a six-months suspension by NBC. As I write this, Bill O’Reilly, the chief ranter on Fox News, is trying to deflect suggestions that he embellishes when he asserts he’s reported from active war zones. He’s livid. He went all Tony Soprano with The New York Times. If he decided the reporter’s coverage was “inappropriate,” he declared, “I am coming after you with everything I have. You can take it as a threat.”
"In New Brunswick, two senior editors at the Moncton Times & Transcript are gone, after an investigation into one editor’s acceptance of a trip to 'Larry’s Gulch,' the provincial government’s fishing lodge. Global News anchor Leslie Roberts resigned after an internal investigation following the revelation that he was part-owner of a PR company; the company’s clients had appeared on Global and he had not disclosed his involvement to his employer."
