Amanda Lang Conflict of interest controversies

In 2011, Lang moderated a panel on CBC’s “The National” tasked with assessing the credibility of then NDP leader Jack Layton’s election platform. In July 2011, CBC’s Ombudsman issued a ruling, affirming that “Lang’s reporting on NDP policy could not be separated from Layton’s leadership qualities and qualifications as a candidate. Any of her campaign-related reporting, even if it had only an indirect connection to the Liberals or NDP, could have been perceived as a conflict of interest.”

In December 2014, the media website Canadaland presented evidence that earlier in the same year, Lang had provided favorable CBC coverage to two companies, Manulife and Sun Life. Importantly, Lang had not disclosed to viewers that both of these companies had recently engaged her for speaking engagements.

What was not disclosed to viewers was that Lang had participated in speaking engagements at RBC-sponsored events, where she promoted her book featuring a back cover endorsement from Nixon. It was also not revealed that she was in a relationship with a board member of the bank.
