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.

Employee Reviews at CBC
Here are a couple of reviews by current and former employees at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation:
Current employee - "Not worth the psychological torture".
I have been working at CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) full-time (More than 8 years).
Pros - Decent pay and benefits, nice coworkers, stimulating work at times.
Cons - The entire corporation is riddled with incompetent middle managers who do more harm than good by trying to "make their mark" and stand out to higher-ups, high management turnover makes it hard to gain momentum on projects, the offices are filthy, people get sick a lot, it's impossible to move up within the corporation, tons of red tape, still a lot of bullying behaviour unaddressed, hours can be changed drastically for full time employees (eg. you may get hired for a 9-5 job, but end up working midnights or weekends.)
If you don't kiss the right butts and fall into the box, your career will stall. Talent doesn't matter to management as much as obedience. Stay away if you're under 30 or actually want to grow in your career. As much as they preach innovation, this place is run by dinosaurs. Stupid dinosaurs.
Former employee - "Put your money where your mouth is, CBC."
Pros - Good work/life balance. Great pay compared to other media orgs.
Cons - Really frustrating to try to get anything done within the bureaucracy. Very sexist within the unit I was working in. Hardly any diversity. Rubin report not followed at all. Advice to Management Fight against sexism and prejudice within a predominantly white male management structure. Instead of ordering an investigation and making a bunch of empty promises, actually treat people with a sense of equality. GET RID OF PEOPLE WHO ARE KNOWN TO BE abusive/incompetent!
