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.

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?
