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 dominant TV station in the country, the CBC, is owned by the government
But unlike the newspaper business, the TV business isn’t based on free enterprise. In fact, it’s one of the Canadian industries most regulated by the government.
Everything from what channels are allowed on TV, to how much they charge cable companies each month, to the channel placement on the TV dial, is regulated by a government agency called the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission, or CRTC. And the dominant TV station in the country, the CBC, is owned by the government.
They receive an annual grant of $1.1 billion.
And that’s in addition to the billions of dollars in real estate and equipment that they have acquired over time.
Stop to think what the newspaper business would look like under that system: A massive government newspaper, with dozens of offices across the country, with subsidized printing and home delivery.
And if you wanted to start up a competitor, you’d have to ask the government for permission, and even to be seen on newsstands.
That’s why no Canadian entrepreneurs have ever started up a free-market all-news TV station.
Do you think there should be more choice on Canadian TV?
That the Sun should have a level playing field with the other channels with mandatory carriage?
Do you think the same rules should apply to all Canadian news channels?
