CBC continues its arrogant, wasteful operation beginning with the CEO, Hubert Lacroix and working down the chain of command. Waste is as rampant and unrelenting as is their biased news service.

Our Twitter followers and frequent visitors to cbcExposed help us to continue to expose CBC’s abuse and waste of tax money as well as their ongoing left wing news bias. Thank you for your support.

In addition to what private broadcasters such as CTV and Global get from advertising and cable/satellite fees the CBC also receives $100,000,000 of your tax money every 30 days. No need to run an efficient service, you have lots of money and they know how to spend it, what a marriage!

Time for a divorce! Latest Polls clearly indicate that Canadians want a change. They see no need for a Government owned taxpayer funded broadcast service in 2014 and taxpayers clearly choose to privatize the CBC now. The Liberals did this for Petro Canada and Air Canada and despite Union cries both flourish today without taxpayer money.

This privatization can easily be achieved by selling CBC English and CBC French to separate buyers to maximize the ownership management and content to Canadians. New private ownership of the CBC will enhance the future of media in Canada. The billions earned from the sale of the CBC and the taxpayer savings of $100,000,000 every month could be used for health care and education.

cbcExposed continues to hear from confidential sources inside the CBC and we will continue to expose their reports of waste, abuse and bias. Meanwhile you can make a difference by contacting your MP to let her/him know you believe they should act today to privatize the CBC.

Time to sell the CBC ...

According to its 2010-2011 annual report, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation received a total of $1.16 billion in government funding in 2011. To put the number into perspective, that is 3.6 percent of the entire federal budget deficit forecast by the finance department for the fiscal year 2011-2012.

More than one billion dollars! Is this ongoing expense to taxpayers justified, especially given the number of private broadcasters, radio stations and television channels available offering Canadian programming today?

We don’t think so. That’s why we’re calling on the government to sell the CBC.
