Its 2017: 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. And now the new Trudeau Government has promised at least an additional $150 million dollars a year to this biased, wasteful government broadcaster. As is, 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. Wake up Canada!

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 while we protect our sources. 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 The Fifth Estate (the largest libel 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 a 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 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.

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, not give them more tax money.

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.

CBC gives distorted view of a very important subject

The United States Supreme Court has upheld Michigan's 2007 referendum banning racial preferences in public university admissions. While not taking any further position on the constitutional validity of affirmative action, the Schuette decision affirmed the right of voters to outlaw such programs according to their prerogative. "This case is not about how the debate about racial preferences should be resolved," wrote Justice Anthony Kennedy. "It is about who may resolve it."

Affirmative action is a major progressive cause, so it is unsurprising that left-leaning media in Canada have covered the ruling. Neither is it strange or objectionable that they have presented it as troubling, given the effect that it is likely to have. But it remains that these media, and especially ones which claim to be "objective" in their reporting, bear a responsibility to present both sides accurately and fairly, including the side opposed to affirmative action.

CBC's The National evidently did not have this responsibility in mind when it covered the ruling last Thursday.

I don't mean to seem like an old curmudgeon droning on about the liberal slant of the news media, as the CBC probably has improved its coverage of ideologically-sensitive issues in recent years. In this case, however, it has reflexively returned to its old ways and given us a distorted view of a very important subject, of which the public needs to hear both sides.
