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.

Subway Provides Notice To CBC That They Will Sue Over Chicken Claims

Subway has announced that it will be suing the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) for $210 million after the public broadcaster published a story claiming the sandwich chain's chicken contained only 50% poultry.

Subway says the allegations, made by CBC's Marketplace program, are "defamatory and absolutely false".

On February 24, 2017, CBC featured a story on its website with the headline "What's in your chicken sandwich? DNA test shows Subway sandwiches could contain just 50% chicken".

According to the story, Marketplace tested chicken from five major fast food restaurants and found that in two popular Subway sandwiches, the chicken tested only contained about half chicken DNA. The chicken tested from the other four fast food chains (A&W, McDonalds, Tim Hortons, and Wendy's) contained at least 84% chicken DNA.

Seeing as how the Subway chicken results were so different from the other restaurants, Marketplace repeated the tests with fresh samples of Subway chicken. But the same results were found: "the oven roasted chicken scored 53.6% chicken DNA, and the chicken strips were found to have just 42.8% chicken DNA." The majority of the remaining DNA was soy.

In response to the story, Suzanne Greco, Subway's president and chief executive, issued a statement saying, "The stunningly flawed test by Marketplace is a tremendous disservice to our customers," and that "the allegation that our chicken is only 50 per cent chicken is 100 per cent wrong."

Subway also had two independent labs test its chicken, and found that "the Canadian chicken products tested had only trace amounts of soy." Subway even took out a full page ad in The Globe and Mail with the statement, "Saying our chicken is only 50 per cent chicken is 100 per cent wrong."
