The CBC continues to operate in a wasteful, bias manner serving the socialist left wing mandate only while continuing to lose viewers and advertising revenues. Scandals continue. An unsettling, ugly anti Semitic movement has grown in the CBC News operation, history experts will know that this troubling bias can have devastating results for our country. Act now- contact your MP, the PMO and the CBC to stop this frightening socialist anti Semitic driven bias now.
Disgruntled CBC workers continue to confidentially share their stories with us, reports of management snooping, waste, huge salaries for select senior management, content bias, low employee morale continue in 2019 and we will expose these activities in our blog while protecting our whistleblower contacts. We take joy in knowing that the CBC-HQ visits us daily to spy on us, read our stories and to find out who owns our for the Canadian people blog.
One of our most popular posts continues to be the epic Dr. Leenen case against the Fifth Estate (the largest libel legal case ever awarded against the media in Canadian history) yet where no one at CBC was fired and taxpayers paid the huge award and legal costs for this blatant CBC Libel action. Writers and filmmakers -this is a Perfect story for an award winning Documentary -ok - who would fund it and where would it air since the CBC owns the Documentary channel! Can you help? Please contact us.
cbcExposed continues to enjoy substantial visitors coming from Universities and Colleges across Canada who use us for research in debates, exams, etc.
We ask students to please join with us in this mission; you have the power to make a difference! And so can private broadcasters who we know are hurting from the dwindling Advertising revenue pool and the CBC taking money from that pool while also unfairly getting massive Tax subsidies money. It's time to stop being silent and start speaking up Bell-CTV, Shaw-Global, Rogers, etc.
Our cbcExposed Twitter followers and visitors to cbcExposed continue to motivate us to expose CBC’s abuse and waste of tax money as well as exposing their ongoing left wing bully-like anti-sematic news bias. Polls meanwhile show that Canadians favour selling the wasteful government owned media giant and to put our tax money to better use for all Canadians. The Liberals privatized Petro Canada and Air Canada; it’s time for the Trudeau Liberals to privatize the CBC- certainly not give them more of our tax money-enough is enough!
The CBC network’s ratings continue to plummet while their costs and our taxpayer bailout subsidies continue to go up! In 2019 what case can be made for the Government to be in the broadcasting business, competing unfairly with the private sector? The CBC receives advertising and cable/satellite fees-fees greater than CTV and Global but this is not enough for the greedy CBC who also receive more than a billion dollars of your tax money every year. That’s about $100,000,000 (yes, $100 MILLION) of our taxes taken from your pay cheques every 30 days and with no CBC accountability to taxpayers.
Wake up! What does it take for real change at the CBC? YOU! Our blog contains a link to the Politicians contact info for you to make your voice heard. Act now and contact your MP, the Cabinet and Prime Minister ... tell them to stop wasting your money on a biased, failing media service, and ... sell the CBC.

In its 2018-19 annual report, the CBC reported a 14.5 per cent decrease in revenue. The public broadcaster, which has a mixed funding model from government and advertising, reported $490 million in revenue for 2018-19, compared to $573 million in 2017-18.
CBC has to contend with a digital advertising market dominated by sophisticated technology firms such as Facebook and Google.

Management at the public broadcaster announced the decision to staff Monday, in an email from Janice Stein, the managing director of CBC North.
But the news prompted swift backlash within staff at CBC North after the news was announced on Monday, explained Kaila Jefferd-Moore, a reporter based in Whitehorse.
"Folks felt blindsided," Jefferd-Moore said. "Their response was mostly confusion. It was a lot of uncertainty … no one knew why it was happening, where it came from. That's the best way to describe it, blindsided."

Tait’s comments mark a notable change of policy from last December, when she said she “absolutely” saw such cost-saving co-productions as being the future for the CBC. And while no explicit reason was given for the U-turn, it comes as Netflix has significantly ramped up its activity in Canada.

We can all agree, however, that Tait’s comments at a TV industry conference in Ottawa were bananas.
No word of a lie, she was talking about Netflix’s presence in Canada.
It’s ridiculous and offensive on any number of levels. But it also bespeaks someone in a very important position who seems to be almost psychedelically out of touch with the corporation and the public she is supposed to work for.

On “The Sunday Edition” yesterday, CBC Anchor Michael Enright interviewed avowed anti-Zionist and anti-Israel detractor, Noura Erakat, professor of law at Rutgers University, who aside from uttering outright falsehoods and flagrant distortions of the truth through misleading legalese, Erakat advocated for the “right of return” of millions of Palestinian refugees and their descendants into Israel, akin to a demographic ticking bomb that would see the Jewish character of the state of Israel and Jewish majority, eliminated.
The CBC’s segment entitled: “Israel violates international law with impunity, says human rights lawyer” was very concerning. CBC Anchor Michael Enright did not adequately challenge many false and highly misleading statements that Ms. Erakat made, and didn’t seem informed enough about the issues at hand, or at least willing, to ask hard and informed questions.
Mr. Enright, who seemed infatuated by Ms. Erakat, and who fawned over her saying “you are clearly a brilliant lawyer,” also expressed admiration for PLO official Hanan Ashrawi, “she’s a terrific person,” he said.

The Chronicle has learned that Gerald Butts, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau‘s principal secretary and chief political operative, repeatedly phoned Barton prior to the CBC’s initiation of that lawsuit. Barton was a moderator of the Federal Leaders’ Debate and was widely criticized for her soft-handling of Trudeau.
Critics want Barton and Butts to disclose the nature of their communications.

Beyond the strategic blunder, CBC’s legal arguments are very weak.
Not only are the CBC’s copyright claims tenuous, but reviewing the clips makes the decision to sue even more puzzling.

My friends, it’s time for a resistance. Specifically, a resistance against the direction that current management is taking CBC TV.
The desperate search for ideas recently became a very public issue when The Globe and Mail revealed that the bosses of The Fifth Estate had proposed a series of programs on the crimes committed by Paul Bernardo. Negative reaction from inside and outside the CBC was swift.

This week, Bratt penned a passionate defence of the National Energy Board titled “It’s not a sham: A rebuttal to Mayor Robertson’s Trans Mountain stance”. The Mount Royal University professor, who chairs the department of Economics, Justice and Policy Studies, earnestly claimed that in 60 years of operation, the Trans Mountain pipeline had never spilled a drop.
Had Mr. Bratt, or his fact-checkers at the CBC, bothered to look up the “spill history” page on the pipeline company’s own website, they would have found 69 oil spills reported to the federal government since 1961, plus more than a dozen leaks of natural gas, jet fuel, diesel, solvents and contaminated water.
Since Texas-based Kinder Morgan bought the line in 2005, there have been 13 oil spills totalling 5,628 barrels of crude. CBC even reported on some of them ...

So it is misleading — to say the least — to give the impression that Canada warming has been accelerating.
Tuesday, November 05, 2019
On last night’s show, I reported on the CBC falsely claiming that global warming will cause Canadian volcanoes to erupt.
Canada’s volcanoes are very small and located far from populated areas, so the threat their eruptions pose is negligible.
CBC even interviewed a scientist who admitted that CBC’s claim is merely a theory being debated by graduate students.

“a convoy of angry Albertans and other westerners rolls into Ottawa today for a mass protest against federal energy and environmental policies that has also become a magnet for extremist, anti-immigrant elements”
With one tweet, CBC managed to make the case for their own defunding while simultaneously proving how elitist they are about the concerns of everyday Albertans.
CBC can't possibly know what people on the convoy are thinking because they haven't been on the convoy, except for a few hundred kilometres. Everything the CBC writes about the mindset of those on the convoy is speculation, laden with anti-blue collar bias, and peppered with a desire to protect Trudeau at all costs.

The decision to give prime, unfettered space and airtime to these preening purveyors of smut cannot be dismissed as unfortunate or isolated errors of judgment.
Rather, it constitutes a pattern of unconscionable behaviour that reflects not only the CBC’s tolerance of the intolerable, but its abandonment of decency and editorial responsibility in the name, apparently, of the “cleansing” power of journalism.
CBC News has sullied its already fading reputation by happily providing a forum to the likes of rancid Rebel Media “contributor” Sheila Gunn Reid, Ann Coulter and, of course, most recently, Gavin McInnes — the screeching leader of a band of bigoted brothers who have traded white sheets and hoods for polo shirts.

Despite already being well-funded previously, Trudeau upped their budget to the point at which CBC now gets around $1.5 billion per year.
And that money is on top of the advertising revenue they receive, as CBC is allowed to benefit both from being State Media, and from the private advertising market.
This gives CBC a totally unfair advantage, putting private broadcasters on an unequal footing.
Yet despite this huge built in advantage, CBC is unable to convince people to watch their biggest news show – The National.
The National is now averaging 401,000 viewers – less than half of what CTV National News brings in.

In his article which focused largely on how Palestinians called for a boycott of Israel and the Eurovision song contest as the host city was inside the Jewish state, reporter Stoffel included the following quote from a Hamas official which erroneously claimed that Tel Aviv sits atop land of former Arab villages “stolen” by Jews:
What CBC did not tell readers is that Tel Aviv was founded in 1909 as the first all-Jewish city in modern times. Since when did Palestinians have any connection to Tel Aviv?

Let's look at an example of the CBC horoscopes.
Am I reading a softcore romance novel? The Jay Peterman catalog? Or a horoscope? Who writes this stuff?
Anyway, joking aside, I wanted to know why the state broadcaster is paying someone to write horoscopes, who that person is, and how much it's all costing us to have CBC provide this vague astrological slice of Canadiana?

CBC continues with their climate crisis articles while never pointing out differing views that many scientists have with research pointing out that human activity is a small factor in climate change, pointing out that China and India are still spending tens of billions of dollars building coal plants, or articles praising Canadians for their renewable energy efforts.

The CBC attempted what amounts to a smear campaign against, among others, myself, Ezra Levant and Barbara Kay.
You might have seen the story online. The alarmist headline read: “Twitter trolls stoked debates about immigration and pipelines in Canada, data show: 9M troll tweets released by Twitter reveal foreign campaigns to influence Canadians’ opinions.”
But that’s far from the truth.
The article reveals that Twitter released an archive of 9.6 million deleted tweets since 2013 that came from suspected bots — that is, fake accounts that are not connected to real people.
Of the 9.6 million deleted tweets, 21,600 mentioned Canada.
Yes, 21,600. Not nine million, as the headline deceptively implies.
The story reveals that the account most retweeted by trolls was CBC News, followed by Rebel Media and its founder, Levant.
Despite the alarmism of this “investigative report,” these accounts were retweeted less than 200 times each.So why did the CBC drum up this fake news story?

The first and most obvious failure of the CBC board has been its acquiescence to the ongoing erosion of CBC funding.
The second failure, which is related to the budget cuts, has been an acceptance of the flagrant commercialization of CBC programming. CBC is supposed to be a public broadcaster. It was created to serve citizens, not to sell commercial products or services, which the private sector can do quite well. Its mandate is to inform, entertain and enlighten Canadians, using predominantly Canadian programming, something that the market alone cannot achieve.

It wants to compete with Netflix, private news companies, and broadcasters to be the chief Canadian content provider.
To truly do that though, the CBC would have to function as a media producer that represents all Canadians.
With only one week until the election ends, they have blown that opportunity by not just blurring the line between partisanship and journalism, but erasing it altogether.

Trump has brought border security to the center of his domestic policy platform. The U.S-Mexico border wall was one of the main things he campaigned on before his 2016 election.
It is unclear how much CBC has spent on the billboard and TV-ad campaign but they have appeared in several locations throughout Canada including on Vancouver’s transit system.

That’s apparently not the case, according to an Access to Information memo obtained by the Department of Canadian Heritage.
The memo reportedly confirmed a steady decline in ad revenue for the CBC ever since the network lost the rights to Hockey Night in Canada (HNIC), which they held from 1952 to 2014.
The memorandum stated CBC advertising revenue peaked at $523 million in 2014, which was the last year the network held broadcasting rights to NHL games before losing it to Rogers Communications. Revenue fell 40% within two years, with ad revenue totaling $318 million in 2018.
“We lost a few dollars,” Lacroix said in 2015 during testimony at the Senate communications committee.

There are only two possible scenarios for Rosemary Barton, and neither is good.
Either she knew that the CBC was going to sue the Conservative Party of Canada in her name and she let it happen, or she didn’t.
If she knew about it, that’s bad. She is, after all, the lead CBC journalist covering a federal election that’s mere days away. Three days before the copyright-infringement suit was filed on October 10, she was a moderator of the official English-language leaders’ debate, where impartiality was the essence of the job. To consciously make herself an adversary of the Conservative Party would be staggeringly stupid. It matters little in this scenario if she were an eager participant or just along for the ride, under pressure from management. It strains credulity to imagine that Barton was somehow forced by her employer to personally sue the Conservatives — and if push came to shove, she could always have resigned. To not refuse is to agree, and to agree is to demonstrate a shocking lack of journalistic judgment by entering into a conflict of interest that would seem to compromise her ability to continue to cover federal politics in Canada, perhaps permanently.

In response, the Conservatives used the lawsuit as a fundraising pitch, arguing in an email to supporters that CBC "footage should be usable by those who fund them."
The party is asking for donations so that it can "hit back hard" against "this attack on free expression."
As well, the Conservative Party says in a statement on its website that it plans to fight the CBC legal action.

We’ll be publishing more frequently, from now till Election Day. Here’s why.
Here’s the story trending. Apparently, Amanda Lang, one half of the amateurish Lang and O’Leary Exchange, is in bed with the Royal Bank of Canada. Literally. (Ba-dum-cha!)
Lang, who is in a relationship with RBC board member Geoffrey Beattie, is accused of trying to suppress the 2013 story about RBC abusing the temporary foreign workers program. They were using it to replace Canadian workers on the cheap in a year when their profits were $8 billion.
Kathy Tomlinson, the investigative reporter behind CBC’s Go Public, broke the story on The National, with pick-ups on other CBC shows. The story led to an apology from the company and changes in legislation.
So no harm done? Maybe. But I want to know how many stories Lang successfully derailed.
That’s because the Lang kerfuffle is further complicated with news that the business reporter has been interviewing some of the people for whom she also does paid speaking gigs.
It’s outrageous. Which is why it’s also reached the point of high comedy. While there was nothing funny about the Jian Ghomeshi scandal, the way CBC managers attempt to justify the unethical habits of their stars has sitcom potential. Well, if you like those cynical sitcoms that feature sex, money, and backroom capers.

Hundreds of traditional Radio One fans strongly agreed with my blog of two weeks ago, in which I blasted CBC management for broadcasting the mindless and banal programs.
Hundreds of people said they no longer listen to Radio One, while other said they turn the radio off as soon as they hear one of the selfie-like programs.
