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.

How Much Does CBC Peter Mansbridge Make
When the CBC implied their star anchor might be getting as little as $80,000 per year to Senate committee in 2014, the Senators called it “just not credible” and “an insult to the committee.” Mansbridge obviously earns more than that, and arguably should.
In fact, documents and information obtained by CANADALAND reveal Peter Mansbridge earns over 15 times what the CBC suggested he did, and will continue in retirement to earn over $500,000 per year from the public broadcaster for the rest of his life through a uniquely generous contract, which designates the brunt of his pay as pensionable base salary.
Sources with firsthand knowledge of the CBC’s inner workings tell us that in 2014, Mansbridge was irked by the CBC’s crackdown on speaking-circuit conflicts. The prohibition came in the wake of CANADALAND reports, including one revealing that Mansbridge received $28,000 for a speech to CAPP, the oil sands lobby group.
A trusted source says that in fall of 2014, Mansbridge demanded that the CBC compensate him for the corporate money he would now have to refuse, a figure he pegged at $250,000 a year. In effect, Mansbridge was asking the taxpayer-funded CBC to pay him to not moonlight for private companies he reports on as a journalist.
