Musk Mocks Canadian News Organization by Slapping It With Accurate Label

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation announced it is ceasing activities on Twitter for the time being after getting labeled “government-funded media” by the social media company.

The move comes after U.S.-based National Public Radio called it quits on the site last week over the same designation.

"Twitter can be a powerful tool for our journalists to communicate with Canadians, but it undermines the accuracy and professionalism of the work they do to allow our independence to be falsely described in this way," said corporate spokesperson Leon Mar.

"Consequently, we will be pausing our activity on our corporate Twitter account and all CBC and Radio-Canada news-related accounts," the statement added. 

Editor in chief Brodie Fenlon defended CBC's decision, citing its "impartial" and "independent" journalism. 

"It is important to take a moment to assess what Twitter has done. That is why we have pressed pause today on our accounts. Our journalistic independence is the cornerstone of who we are as a public broadcaster. Suggesting otherwise is inaccurate and untrue," he said.

Musk poked fun at CBC's objections to the label.

According to Twitter, "government-funded media is defined as outlets where the government provides some or all of the outlet's funding and may have varying degrees of government involvement over editorial content."
