It's 2018 and cbcExposed continues to hear from confidential sources inside the CBC about CBC management snooping on its employees, company waste, low employee morale, huge salaries and benefits for the President and other senior management, gender bias and other scandals and we will continue to expose their reports on our blog while we protect our sources. We take joy in knowing that the CBC-HQ visits us daily to spy on us and read our stories such as news bias, waste, the CBC Sunshine List, ongoing scandals including the epic Dr. Leenen case against The Fifth Estate (the largest libel legal case ever awarded against the media in Canadian history) where no one at CBC was fired and taxpayers paid the award and legal costs for this CBC Libel action. Writers and filmmakers take note-this is a Perfect story for an award winning Documentary!

cbcExposed continues to enjoy substantial visitors coming from Universities and Colleges across Canada who use us for research in debates, exams, etc.

We ask students to please join with us in this mission; you have the power to make a difference! And so can private broadcasters who we know are hurting from the dwindling Advertising revenue pool and the CBC taking money from that pool while also unfairly getting Tax subsidies money. It's time to stop being silent and start speaking up Bell Media-CTV, Shaw-Global, Rogers, etc.

Our cbcExposed 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 bully-like news bias. Polls meanwhile show that Canadians favour selling the wasteful 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 Trudeau Liberals to privatize the CBC- certainly not give them more of our tax money-enough is enough!

The CBC network’s ratings continue to plummet while their costs and our tax- payer subsidies continue to go up! In 2018 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 every year. That’s 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. Wake up Canada!

What does it take for real change at the CBC? YOU! Our blog now contains a link to the Politicians contact info for you to make your voice heard. Act now and contact your MP, the Cabinet and Prime Minister ... tell them to stop wasting your money, and ... sell the CBC.

Interesting CBC Facts

This report is something I saw that I found very interesting.  I hope you will as well.  Why do we give the CBC over $1 Billion of our tax dollars EVERY year?

These are excerpts from a statistical profile of CBC/Radio-Canada.  Based on data released by the CRTC for the 2010 and 2011 broadcast fiscal years, and data released by CBC/Radio-Canada

  • In the 50 years since 1962, the Parliamentary operating appropriations actually received by CBC/Radio-Canada totaled $31.4 billion. Using 1962 as the base year, the total amount by which the CBC/Radio-Canada Parliamentary operating appropriations exceeded inflation from 1963 to 2012 was $16.9 billion.
  • when spending on sports is excluded, private conventional television broadcasters spend more on Canadian programs than does CBC/Radio-Canada
  • CBC English conventional television got 57.7 per cent of its total viewing from sports and foreign programs, with the entire balance of the schedule accounting for only 42.3 per cent of its viewing.
  • Across conventional television, private conventional TV delivers higher viewing to Canadian programs than does CBC/Radio-Canada conventional TV. 

  • The 1974 CRTC hearings on CBC/Radio-Canada licence renewals led to the elimination of commercials on CBC/Radio Canada radio services.  They also saw an interesting exchange between CRTC Chairman Pierre Juneau and CBC/Radio Canada President Laurent Picard, during a discussion about CBC English
    conventional television. As reported in The Toronto Star:

    • This was the point at which Juneau crossed Picard’s path. If the CBC did not now exist, would Picard recommend that it be created in its present form? For the first time, Picard paused. “No,” he answered, “I would recommend that it be created as a purely public network".
