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.

The CBC must take us all for fools ...

The CBC must take us all for fools and given that we keep paying their bills, we just might be.

Last week the state broadcaster trumpeted that it was a finalist for an award given to government bodies that show openness and transparency.

“We take transparency and accountability very seriously,” CBC president Hubert Lacroix said in a statement.

Then this week I opened my mail. I shouldn’t have been surprised really, it was par for the course for CBC: It sent me more files with all the relevant information stripped out.

See, back in 2007 when CBC came under the Access to Information Act, my employer Quebecor submitted an access request asking how much revenue CBC generated from Hockey Night in Canada.

They didn’t ask how much each ad cost or what special deal certain companies received. It was a request as to how much money CBC generated from hockey.

Given that CBC is owned by the government and paid for by all of us, this is the type of information it should readily turn over. After all, CBC regularly submits requests asking other government departments for information on files far more sensitive than hockey broadcasts and receives that information which it then turns into news stories.
