Nearly three years ago, we launched a special section of our website, dedicated to stories and issues about the First Nations, Inuit and Métis people of Canada. Our goal in creating CBC Aboriginal was to better engage and reflect this vibrant community. And 11 million page views later, we feel even more strongly that this has been a necessary addition to our journalism.Today, though - a little tweak.
News editors around the world grappled with the same dilemma yesterday: to show or not to show the controversial Charlie Hebdo cartoons linked to the mass murder in Paris. At CBC News, we opted on the side of discretion: to show some of these incendiary cartoons, but hold back from showing the ones most likely to offend Muslims because they depicted the Prophet Muhammad.
