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.

What Happens When CBC (Canadian BROADCASTING System) Doesn't Broadcast

In a media world that seems to undergo seismic changes with the seasons, it is tempting fate for the CBC to unveil a five-year plan, let alone one that asserts the public broadcaster’s irreplaceability.

Not only does the five-year strategy outlined on Thursday aim to make CBC “the public space at the heart of our conversations and experiences as Canadians” — no small feat, that — but it also vows that, in 2020, “three out of four Canadians will answer that CBC or Radio-Canada is very important to them personally.”

But while Mr. Lacroix and executive vice-president Heather Conway explained that the CBC is flipping on its head an investment structure that currently puts money in TV first and mobile last, the details aren’t quite so simple.

It is true that audiences are already moving to mobile with great haste, but it’s also true that the more the CBC heads down a path that is already littered with private competitors, the less there seems much of a point in having a public broadcaster operating there.

At its essence, we think of the CBC as being the vehicle through which people could stay connected with the world in even the far-flung corners of the nation. It had transmitters that went where private broadcasters didn’t, or wouldn’t.

But more than 90% of Canadians who receive a television signal do so through a cable or satellite provider today, a number that is marching inexorably toward 100%. And anyone who has an Internet signal or a smartphone has the ability to reach not just the CBC’s offerings, but countless others from across the globe.

The shift toward digital is no doubt a natural survival instinct. But when the next five-year plan comes out, is there a reason for a public broadcaster if it doesn’t, you know, broadcast?
