CBC Scandals grow everyday while management continues to spend your money to cover them up. 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.

Its 2015: 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.
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. 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 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.
Perfect for a documentary!

As we approach 500,000 visits to cbcExposed (visitors from across Canada and indeed around the world) we take special joy in the many visitors coming from Universities and Colleges across Canada who use us for research in debates, etc. Join us in this mission!

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. 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.

Polls meanwhile show that Canadians favour selling the 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 Conservatives to privatize the CBC.

What does it take for real change at the CBC? You! Act now and contact your MP, the Cabinet and Prime Minister ... tell them to stop wasting your money, and ... sell the CBC.

CBC refuses to reveal its secrets ...

Poor Hubert Lacroix.

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.
