Its 2017: 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. And now the new Trudeau Government has promised at least an additional $150 million dollars a year to this biased, wasteful government broadcaster. As is, Taxpayers continue to be hosed to the tune of about $100,000,000 (yes, 100 MILLION) of our taxes every 30 days with no CBC accountability to taxpayers as they continue with their biased news service serving only the extreme socialists and anti-Semitics. Wake up Canada!

cbcExposed continues to hear from confidential sources inside the CBC about the "scandal du jour" and we will continue to expose their reports of waste, abuse and bias while we protect our sources. We take joy in knowing CBC-HQ visits us daily to research our stories such as the CBC Sunshine List, ongoing scandals including the epic Dr. Leenen case against The Fifth Estate (the largest libel case ever awarded against the media in Canadian history) where no one at CBC was fired and taxpayers paid the award and legal costs for this CBC Libel action. Writers and filmmakers take note-this is a Perfect story for a Documentary!

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 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 Tax subsidies money. It's time to stop being silent and start speaking up.

Our cbcExposed Twitter followers and frequent 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 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, not give them more tax money.

What does it take for real change at the CBC? You! Our blog now 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, and ... sell the CBC.

Tory MP Del Mastro accuses CBC’s O’Malley of ‘inappropriate’ conduct ...

Last Tuesday’s public House Access to Information, Privacy and Ethics Committee fell into confusion after Ms. O’Malley approached Liberal committee member Scott Andrews (Avalon, Nfld.) during the meeting for what she thought was copy of a motion Mr. Andrews was due to introduce.

Ms. O’Malley later told the chair, NDP MP Pierre-Luc Dusseault (Sherbrooke, Que.), that she did not get a copy of the motion. Mr. Andrews told The Hill Times the same thing.

The document that had just been distributed to committee members turned out not to be a motion but a draft report that would be discussed after the group went in-camera.

“I assumed that it was a motion, and, as is my usual practice, I immediately headed for the nearest available source—in this case, opposition staffers, and the nearest opposition MP— to get a copy before someone moved to go in-camera, which, these days, usually happens as soon as the witnesses leave the table,” Ms. O’Malley wrote in a blog post explaining the incident the next day, in which she also apologized for any confusion and said she respects Parliamentary rules.

“When I realized that it was actually a draft report… I backed off immediately, but not quite quickly enough to dodge the resulting point of order,” she said. Mr. Andrews said that the draft report was not marked to indicate that it was confidential, and that the situation was “a simple misunderstanding.”

Mr. Del Mastro (Peterborough, Ont.), a member of the House Ethics Committee, raised a point of order in the House June 5, alleging that Ms. O’Malley had asked to see the in-camera report, and that Mr. Andrews had provided it. Ms. O’Malley has denied this.

Afterwards Mr. Del Mastro told reporters that both Mr. Andrews and Ms. O’Malley had broken House rules.
