CBC management is in disarray, morale at the CBC is at an all-time low and taxpayers continue to be hosed to the tune of about $100,000,000 of our taxes every 30 days simply to satisfy CBC’s lavish, outrageous wasteful lifestyle. Senior management at the CBC is out of control. CBC Scandals grow everyday while management continues to spend your money to cover them up. With no CBC accountability to taxpayers, a biased news service that serves only the extreme socialists and anti Semitics, the only solution is for Harper to act as the Liberals did with Petro Canada and Air Canada, sell the CBC.
Its 2015 what case can be made for the Government to be in the broadcasting business, competing unfairly with the private sector and wasting taxpayer’s hard earned money? A Government owned media service serving only a small elite market. The CBC receives advertising and cable/satellite fees as do private broadcasters such as CTV and Global but this is not enough for the greedy CBC bully they insist and get additional money to waste, about $100,000,000 of your tax money every 30 days.
Our 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 news bias. They clearly want change; question is how does that happen? It begins with you, the voter, the taxpayer, every day Canadians need to make their voices heard to bring pressure on the Politicians who are charged with protecting your money. Our blog now contains a link to the Politicians contact info for you to make your voice heard. In particular, tell the Cabinet and the Prime Minister to act now to privatize the CBC.
This privatization can easily be achieved by selling CBC English and CBC French to separate buyers. The billions earned from the sale of the CBC can be used to pay down our debt and the taxpayer savings of $100,000,000 every month could be used for important elements to Canadians-health care and education.
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. And every day our blog continues to receive many visitors from Colleges and Universities across Canada. We will welcome student’s opinions on our blog; we will publish the best of content from students who want to join us in our mission.
As we approach 500,000 visits to cbcExposed - visitors from across Canada and indeed around the world- we take joy in knowing CBC-HQ visits us daily to research our stories such as the CBC Sunshine List, ongoing scandals such as the Dr. Leenen case against fifth estate-the largest libel case ever awarded against the media in Canadian history-no one at CBC fired and taxpayers paid the award and legal costs.

CBC refuses to reveal its secrets ...
The president of the CBC is feeling put upon because, unlike other media outlets, we refuse to write glowingly about how wonderful the state broadcaster is.
Beginning almost a year ago, I started a semi-regular feature called “The Money Drain” that looks at CBC’s refusal to be open and transparent under the Access to Information Act.
In that time, CBC has refused to release the type of standard fare released by minister’s offices and departments under the same access law that is supposed to open government up to the people who pay for it.
Want to know how much CBC paid to replace the Hockey Night in Canada song they never should have lost? Too bad.
Want to know how much employee absenteeism is costing the taxpayer at CBC? They won’t say.
This series, combined with stinging reports on CBC’s failures from the federal information commissioner, has the Commons ethics and access to information committee examining Lacroix’s actions.
He isn’t happy about it.
