Going undercover, or hiring at actor to play a role, to get a reading on how some members of society feel about immigration or racism, is absolutely no different than a cop going undercover to apprehend a criminal. Neither are fake or dishonest....
Except perhaps to those still suffering sour grapes from the last election, and are stuck in a right-wing echo chamber.

It doesn't take an "expert" to see that scurrilous accusations against Trump have increased the prevalence of disgusting stupidity on the internet. If CBC wants to join in the fray with their own brand of amateurish Trump-baiting, they should stop taking public money.

Didn't notice that this topic started 11 months ago at first. I was on a hiatus from Castanet at the time.

Much ado about absolutely nothing. CBC did a great job of investigative journalism.

Fake News ? Ah no.

Disregarding the topic, I totally agree with the comment.
