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.

The dominant TV station in the country, the CBC, is owned by the government

The Sun News Network believes in free enterprise, just like Sun Media newspapers do.

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?
