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 Exposed at odds with journalistic ethics

When shots rang on Parliament Hill, a nation sat rapt to its screens.

The CBC shined that fateful October day, burying a growing list of questions about sustainability, editorial independence and conflict-of-interest standards.

Or, so it seemed.

Mansbridge himself was at the centre of those queries, his appearances before oilsands associated groups raised concerns about his ability to cover one of the country’s most heated debates. Long-time CBC contributor Rex Murphy (also a National Post columnist, full disclosure) also faced questions about speaking to oilsands groups.

And now, months later, the Mother Corp. is again at odds with journalistic ethics as it fends off allegations chief business correspondent Amanda Lang tried to interfere with a story by fellow broadcaster Kathy Tomlinson about RBC using temporary foreign workers. The CBC staunchly denies Lang committed any wrong doing.

The Ghomeshi case uncovered cracks that were already spreading. In the ensuing weeks and months, stories have poured out of a culture that shielded Ghomeshi from serious claims of workplace harassment, and questions still linger about what the CBC’s top executives knew when about his alleged, repeated violence.

The lingering questions in Canadian minds about how and why Ghomeshi was hiding in plain sight for so long make other issues raised seem that much worse.

Of course, the ethical quandaries leveled at Mansbridge, Murphy and Lang are nowhere near as odious as the charges Ghomeshi faces.

Yet, there are parallels in the way in which CBC’s top brass has circled the wagons. Again, we see CBC head of public affairs Chuck Thompson correcting and re-correcting the facts.

Read the full story.
