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.

CBC spokesman says everything is on the table

The cash-strapped CBC is weighing the closure of its venerated in-house documentary unit.

The move is the latest sign of a Canadian broadcast sector feeling the strain of a soft advertising market and cord-cutting, and includes rival Bell Media eliminating 120 Toronto TV jobs this summer.

A CBC spokesman on Tuesday told The Hollywood Reporter that "everything is on the table."

The prospect of shuttering the in-house producer of Canada: A People’s History and The Canadian Experience prompted a letter to CBC president and CEO Hubert Lacroix and newly installed head of English programming Heather Conway signed by 17 leading staff at the public broadcaster.

The CBC has already imposed deep budget and job cuts, and diversified its primetime lineup away from procedurals and shiny-floor reality competition shows, in a bid to close a $130 million (about $121 million U.S.) budgetary shortfall.

The network's blow from a continuing advertising revenue crunch includes losing prized Canadian NHL rights to Rogers Media after the private sector rival signed a blockbuster $5.2 billion ($4.9 billion U.S.) deal with the pro hockey league.

A consolidating Canadian TV market has been buffeted by ad dollars increasingly chasing consumers online, and cable and satellite TV operators facing increased cord-shaving and cord-cutting.

Read the full story.

PS - This brings me back to the purpose of this website.  Do we need a publicly funded (to the tune of over $100 million EVERY month) State Broadcaster competing with the private sector???
