The CBC continues to operate in a wasteful, bias manner serving the socialist left wing mandate only while continuing to lose viewers and advertising revenues. Scandals continue. An unsettling, ugly anti Semitic movement has grown in the CBC News operation, history experts will know that this troubling bias can have devastating results for our country. Act now- contact your MP, the PMO and the CBC to stop this frightening socialist anti Semitic driven bias now.

Disgruntled CBC workers continue to confidentially share their stories with us, reports of management snooping, waste, huge salaries for select senior management, content bias, low employee morale continue in 2019 and we will expose these activities in our blog while protecting our whistleblower contacts. We take joy in knowing that the CBC-HQ visits us daily to spy on us, read our stories and to find out who owns our for the Canadian people blog.

One of our most popular posts continues to be the epic Dr. Leenen case against the Fifth Estate (the largest libel legal case ever awarded against the media in Canadian history) yet where no one at CBC was fired and taxpayers paid the huge award and legal costs for this blatant CBC Libel action. Writers and filmmakers -this is a Perfect story for an award winning Documentary -ok - who would fund it and where would it air since the CBC owns the Documentary channel! Can you help? Please contact us.

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 with 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 massive Tax subsidies money. It's time to stop being silent and start speaking up Bell-CTV, Shaw-Global, Rogers, etc.

Our cbcExposed Twitter followers and 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 anti-sematic 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- certainly not give them more of our tax money-enough is enough!

The CBC network’s ratings continue to plummet while their costs and our taxpayer bailout subsidies continue to go up! In 2019 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 every year. That’s about $100,000,000 (yes, $100 MILLION) of our taxes taken from your pay cheques every 30 days and with no CBC accountability to taxpayers.

Wake up! What does it take for real change at the CBC? YOU! Our blog 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 on a biased, failing media service, and ... sell the CBC.

The “shocking” video the CBC is trying to prevent you from seeing

The CBC is taking the Conservative Party of Canada to court for using the broadcaster's footage in an online advertisement.

In response, the Conservatives used the lawsuit as a fundraising pitch, arguing in an email to supporters that CBC "footage should be usable by those who fund them."

The party is asking for donations so that it can "hit back hard" against "this attack on free expression."

As well, the Conservative Party says in a statement on its website that it plans to fight the CBC legal action.

CBC attempts to justify unethical habits of their stars

As the latest news story about CBC hijinks breaks, I’m beginning to wonder if we shouldn’t just rename it the Corrupt Broadcasting Corporation. (Ba-dum-cha!)

We’ll be publishing more frequently, from now till Election Day. Here’s why.

Here’s the story trending. Apparently, Amanda Lang, one half of the amateurish Lang and O’Leary Exchange, is in bed with the Royal Bank of Canada. Literally. (Ba-dum-cha!)

Lang, who is in a relationship with RBC board member Geoffrey Beattie, is accused of trying to suppress the 2013 story about RBC abusing the temporary foreign workers program. They were using it to replace Canadian workers on the cheap in a year when their profits were $8 billion.

Kathy Tomlinson, the investigative reporter behind CBC’s Go Public, broke the story on The National, with pick-ups on other CBC shows. The story led to an apology from the company and changes in legislation.

So no harm done? Maybe. But I want to know how many stories Lang successfully derailed.

That’s because the Lang kerfuffle is further complicated with news that the business reporter has been interviewing some of the people for whom she also does paid speaking gigs.

It’s outrageous. Which is why it’s also reached the point of high comedy. While there was nothing funny about the Jian Ghomeshi scandal, the way CBC managers attempt to justify the unethical habits of their stars has sitcom potential. Well, if you like those cynical sitcoms that feature sex, money, and backroom capers.

Angry CBC Radio listeners

Long-time CBC Radio One listeners upset over summer programming that featured a dozen shows about personal concerns and peoples’ problems will be listening carefully this fall to see how many of those kinds of programs are in the line-up.

Hundreds of traditional Radio One fans strongly agreed with my blog of two weeks ago, in which I blasted CBC management for broadcasting the mindless and banal programs.

Hundreds of people said they no longer listen to Radio One, while other said they turn the radio off as soon as they hear one of the selfie-like programs.

CBC Comedy has grown stale

The CBC—once the home of world-class comedy—now struggles to land its jokes. And with more competition than ever before, it’s losing its place in the cultural firmament.

It wasn’t so long ago that the CBC was known as the Canadian home of strong satire and sketch.

But now, when Canada needs a compelling comedic voice more than ever, the CBC’s output has largely grown stale and irrelevant.

The CBC, meanwhile, continues to rely on its stable of ever-aging dinosaurs instead of promoting new shows.

If the CBC continues to downplay new voices online and shackle itself to long-time creators who produce staid broadcast work, it risks losing a hold among the creators that are the lifeblood of the scene.

As it currently exists, the CBC gives talented creators little incentive to write anything better and smarter. It’s time to stop coasting off of legacy work, establish a clear direction, recognize comedians as artists, and properly promote those artists through social media and streaming services. Until they do, Canadians will rightfully continue to ignore CBC Comedy in favour of the many superior alternatives.

CBC should be representing the views of all Canadians

With the support of its members, the CCFR was able to answer a long-standing question; is Canadian media biased against the ownership of firearms and the people who own them?

The answer is yes. It is now an established and irrefutable fact.

Given that gun owners are being done a disservice by the CBC, a state-run broadcaster that all Canadians are forced to pay for, what do we do about it? The CBC should be representing the views of all Canadians with accuracy and honesty. If this organization is incapable of abiding by these simple virtues, why should it exist at all? The CCFR, as a first measure is lodging this official complaint to both the Ombudsman in charge of the CBC and the Minister of Heritage who oversees the public broadcaster.

At worst, we may experience inaction concerning this complaint. At best, a dialogue about how the CBC can improve its coverage and restore its relevance. Either way, a government friendly to the most vetted and law-abiding Canadians will form a majority at some point in the future; and the documented conduct of the leaders of the CBC may become a foundation for significant change.

CBC admitted it had known about the allegations

Let’s just start with the current big scandal, the Kokanee Grope.

Have they not heard how Prime Minister Justin Trudeau groped a small-town newspaper reporter in 2000?

That’s possible, I suppose, if your only source of news is the CBC. When the grope story first materialized in June, the CBC admitted it had known about the allegations since “earlier this year,” but had chosen not to report on them.

The CBC, which receives a taxpayer subsidy of over $1 billion a year, claims it sat on the story to protect the victim’s privacy. Fascinating, though, how their concern for her privacy coincided so conveniently with keeping their prime minister’s image clean.

If you believe there is no bias at the CBC, ask yourself whether the broadcaster would have sat on these accusations had they been made against Stephen Harper while he was PM?

CBC’s fake news problem

Minister of Democratic Institutions (a Soviet-style moniker devised by the Trudeau government) Karina Gould recently espoused confidence in the state broadcaster the CBC to mother Canadians by telling them what information they can and cannot believe.

Shortly before Gould tweeted CBC’s biased article on fake news, which propagated the childish notion that the dark arts of disinformation only comes from the right of the political spectrum, the CBC itself published false information on tech giants censoring conservative individuals and information.

When the state broadcaster dismisses real internet censorship as a right-wing conspiracy theory and the Liberals in power defer to the CBC as the go-to source for determining what is and isn’t real news, Canadians need to start questioning the reliability and honesty of the so-called public broadcaster.

CBC ignores inconvenient truths

Canada’s public broadcasting corporation, CBC, released an “article” earlier this week, which largely attempted to paint our organization as a conservative advocacy website.

I write for The Post Millennial; I am a leftist; and let me tell you: the CBC has got it all wrong.

In an age where challenging the narrative and questioning the unquestionable are a rising trend, CBC’s shoddy attempt to attack our diverse organization only seems to have hurt their own credibility.

A good news organization appreciates opinions, encourages free speech, and enables critical thinking. The Post Millennial does just that. By having leftist, centrist, and rightist writers, we challenge our readers’ opinions and the narrative surrounding mainstream media.

As an esteemed news organization, we make it our mission to question the government when it’s wrong, and appreciate it when it’s right. It’s basic journalism.

CBC using the term “climate emergency” in place of climate change

While it may be hard to believe, the Trudeau government and the CBC have concluded the language they currently use to describe climate change hasn’t been apocalyptic enough.

So now, Environment Minister Catherine McKenna and the stated-funded public broadcaster will be using the term “climate emergency” in place of climate change.

“Senior CBC management told staff they were able to use the terms ‘climate crisis’ and ‘climate emergency’ when covering the wide-ranging impacts of temperature rises around the world.”

Why does CBC need advertising?

A government’s job in a democracy, in theory, is to provide for the common good those things that the free market either cannot or cannot effectively deliver — national defence, foreign policy, certain large-scale infrastructure projects that span multiple jurisdictions. The Canadian government, however, seems oddly intent on operating Crown corporations that directly compete with the private sector.

The CBC’s aggressive plan to grow its share of commercial advertising revenue is an even more problematic example of a so-called public good competing with private enterprise. At a recent preview of CBC programming for media marketing and advertising agencies, the public broadcaster emphasized that all of its content — on TV, radio, podcasts or digital properties — is “ad friendly.”

Events like this, called upfronts, are standard in the broadcast industry. But the CBC itself is not standard. Unlike its competitors, it receives more than a billion dollars each year in taxpayer money to fund its news division as well as, among other things, the creation of original Canadian dramatic content. Why does it need advertising at all?
It’s no mystery why CBC would want advertising, of course. More money is its own reward. The problem is, the CBC is not Canada’s only broadcaster or news outlet. And every dollar of advertising it secures is a dollar less available to Canada’s other media companies, which receive no comparable direct federal subsidy.

CBC always taken care of by the Liberals comments Justin Trudeau

It appears as if some Liberals have no fear politicizing the state broadcaster, as long as it means swaying a few extra votes.

Earlier today, Bob Rae, a former Liberal MP and current Special Envoy and the interim party leader before Justin Trudeau, posted a response tweet to Eric Grenier, the CBC’s pollster, which made many uncomfortable to say the least.

While the awkward moment displays the party in a problematically close relationship with the CBC, it is not the first during this campaign.

Justin Trudeau also had a similarly problematic interaction at the beginning of the campaign, when he jokingly offered poutine to a CBC journalist, while commenting that the Liberals always took care of the organization.

CBC journalistic conflict of interest

It isn’t just private sector journalists who suffer from a lack of credibility. Canada’s state broadcaster is even more conflicted.

During the last federal election, funding to the CBC became a major issue.

The Conservative government cut the CBC’s budget by $115 million; the NDP pledged to reverse these cuts, while the Liberals pledged to not only reverse the cuts but to give $150 million in new funding.

Lo and behold, with $265 million on the line, the Trudeau Liberals received glowing coverage from the CBC which helped them win the election.

How can journalists remain independent when they’re the beneficiaries of government handouts? Can they really be trusted to scrutinize the politicians who fund them? Will they remain unbiased if other politicians threaten to end their funding?

Producers of CBC’s The Fifth Estate “may be guilty of defamatory libel.”

Winnipeg fashion designer Peter Nygard has won another court battle in his ongoing case against the CBC.

A Manitoba court of appeal decision delivered Friday denied the CBC’s attempt to get Nygard’s case thrown out and opened the way for the millionaire mogul to proceed with a defamation case against the national broadcaster.

The court of appeal’s ruling essentially supports a 2015 ruling from Manitoba Court of Queen’s Bench Justice Doug Abra who, in confirming a lower court decision made two years earlier, wrote that producers of CBC’s The Fifth Estate “may be guilty of defamatory libel.”
The case is connected to a 2010 documentary that alleged Nygard was abusive to staff and known to engage in sexually inappropriate behaviour.

Publication ban granted in CBC-Nygard case

A nearly decade-long legal fight between fashion mogul Peter Nygard and the CBC hit another roadblock Thursday, after a week-long preliminary hearing was bogged down in a fight over what the public should be allowed to hear.

At issue is a 2010 Fifth Estate documentary, Larger Than Life, that levelled serious allegations against Nygard and his treatment of staff and women.

Nygard filed a private prosecution against the public broadcaster and journalists Timothy Sawa, Morris Karp and Bob McKeown for defamatory libel, alleging they engaged in an international conspiracy to discredit him and his clothing empire.

CBC under fire for documentary

CBC’s science show The Nature of Things is set to air a documentary that purports to prove the first humans in the New World came across the ocean from Europe and not, as most scientists think, via a land bridge from Asia.

A geneticist of ancient humans calls it “extremely irresponsible” to promote this theory, not just because it is widely rejected and unsupported by evidence, but also because it is a favourite piece of propaganda among white supremacists, who use it to argue Europeans colonized North America before Native Americans, and therefore have the original claim to the land.

CBC greatly interferes with the business success of its commercial competitors

In the 1930s, to foster greater unity of national news in the face of U.S. competition, we needed a national medium. Not any more: we now have several radio, television and print media in Canada, all desperate for advertising money that the CBC absorbs both on and off the internet.

The CBC now controls several radio stations, a swarm of television stations and television news feeds, and internet broadcasts. It greatly interferes with the business success of its commercial competitors at the expense of taxpayers and thereby denies us effective contrary opinions. Its $1.8-billion annual federal government grant, plus income from television and internet advertising, gives it too much control of the news.

At the very least, the annual grant should be equally distributed to all Canadian media.

CBC loves to claim how much they’re beating their competitors

The Post Millennial – which yours truly is proud to write articles for – has quickly become one of Canada’s fastest growing news and opinion outlets.

It features what you see in most online outlets today, a mix of news and opinion content.

And notably, it’s not taxpayer funded, refusing to force Canadian taxpayers to subsidize it.

And, as was pointed out on Twitter, the CBC loves to claim how much they’re beating their competitors, while neglecting the fact that CBC is federally funded.

This appears to be a classic case of projection by the CBC. In reality, they are a state-run ‘Liberal Pamphleteering’ outlet, and (while there are rare exceptions like Robyn Urback), mostly totally dominated by Liberal sentiment.

Consider how, just as the Liberals started pushing more of their anti-Conservative climate fear-mongering, CBC started running endless climate change segments that basically repeated Liberal talking points word for word.

And consider how, in their biased attack on The Post Millennial, they cited a supposed ‘expert’ without mentioning that he was… wait for it… a former CBC Executive Producer.

Where is CBCs credibility?

Where is the CBCs credibility after running this story.

 Democrats demand Kavanaugh be impeached over new sexual misconduct allegations
https://www.cbc.ca/news/world/kavanaugh-sexual-misconduct-allegations-1.5284951

Major news organizations in the United States have either had to issue corrections to their story or have simply refused to run it. 

The Washington Post has revealed it passed on a questionable story about Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh back in 2018 because it "could not independently corroborate the allegation" and key figures didn't cooperate. The story, about a sexual assault allegedly committed by Kavanaugh during the 1983-84 school year at Yale, was published Saturday by The New York Times, which was forced to issue a correction to the article the next day.


Does the CBC know what's going on better in the United States than USA news organizations?

CBC likes to spin government funding

The CBC has consistently lost market share to their private rivals that do not benefit from a taxpayer subsidy. This fact alone dictates that people have voted with their television remotes already. 

The CBC likes to spin the government funding they receive (a fairly substantial $1.16 billion) by saying that it creates 3x that much for the Canadian economy. My response is that a private company could take those assets and do even better for the Canadian economy as a whole (as evidenced by their already more efficient business models). 

In addition to losing out to their television adversaries, the CBC has been rendered much less irreplaceable in terms of a news source to a majority of Canadians because of the internet and cheap satellite TV capabilities. There are almost no isolated communities that solely depend on the CBC any longer, and I challenge people to find me more than a handful of Canadians under 25 who watch the CBC at all.

CBC's racist comment sections spark debate

Online discussions of aboriginal issues in Canada can become so vitriolic that the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) decided earlier this week to temporarily close comments on stories about indigenous people. Brodie Fenlon, acting director of digital news, said that while many topics incite problematic discussion, the number of comments that descend into hate speech and personal attacks are disproportionately higher on stories related to indigenous issues.

It’s a significant move for the CBC, which, as a publicly funded corporation, faces pressure to maintain an open space for democratic discussion.

CBC competitors paying taxes that subsidize their competition

Online is where it's at. There, CBC/Radio Canada goes toe to toe with traditional broadcasters and newspapers fighting for readers, viewers, listeners and, most of all, dollars. That's where it sows. And that's where it reaps.

And that's where, if something needs to be "done" about CBC — which, in both the online and television worlds, is a full-blown commercial operator — it should be done.

The nation's television broadcasting world has forever been distorted by the existence of a publicly-funded entity such as CBC that competes not only for viewers but for advertising income. It has always been entirely unfair to the private sector that its own tax dollars are used to compete against it.

Publicly-funded radio may compete with the private sector for listeners but never for money.

About 40 per cent of Canada's advertising dollars are spent online, making that medium by far the most dominant, followed by TV a good 10 points behind, then radio and newspapers. That means that by employing an aggressive online strategy, CBC now competes for a share of about 70 per cent of the advertising dollars at play in the market.

So newspapers, radio and other internet platforms are now, in addition to television companies, paying taxes that subsidize their competition to their detriment.

CBC is a Propaganda Tool for the Left Wing Social Activists

The tax supported CBC is a tool for left wing social activists to indoctrinate the Canadian public.

It collects $1.7 billion each year from the federal government to promote its left wing ideological objective which most definitely does not reflect the views of most Canadians. It does so, even though the Broadcasting Act, which was updated in September, 2018, specifically states in Section 3(l)(i) that broadcasters are required to provide a balance of information and in Section 3(l)(iv) that the CBC must provide a reasonable opportunity for the Canadian public to be exposed to differing views on matters of public concern. The CBC is operating outside its mandate.

Former CBC President, Hubert Lacroix, and current President, Catherine Tait, have ignored the Broadcast Act and have allowed the CBC to promote only left wing propaganda programming. They have had no hesitation in doing so since the CBC is assured that the Liberal government will continue to fund its operation, regardless of its bias, or perhaps because of it.

A recent example of CBC’s intolerance to differing views took place on September 23, 2018, when it interviewed former Conservative leadership candidate, Maxime Bernier, who has formed his own political party, the People’s Party of Canada. Regardless of one’s opinion of Mr. Bernier, he should never have been exposed to such a derogatory and insulting interview as took place when rabidly partisan journalist, Wendy Mesley, interviewed him. She lobbed ideologically loaded grenades at him, insinuating that he was part of a vast right wing conspiracy. Ms. Mesley’s contempt for Mr. Bernier and his views, are similar to that exhibited by another CBC journalist, Rosemary Barton, when she interviews individuals with conservative values.

A network should fire such journalists for their unprofessional behaviour, but the CBC supports such behaviour as do most other mainstream media.

Why is publicly tax funded CBC anti-Semitic?

On August 29, CBC Radio aired a report by Beirut-based freelance reporter Rebecca Collard that portrayed Israel as the aggressor in recent hostilities with Hezbollah and which failed to mention any of Israel’s security concerns about the grievous threat that Iranian-sponsored terror group poses.

Untold by Ms. Collard (and we strenuously take issue with her failure to include the following context) Israel says its attack in Syria was a pre-emptive strike against Iranian Quds Force operatives who were about to carry out an imminent attack on Israel by launching killer attack drones.

The troubling lack of context and omission of Israel’s legitimate security concerns, unfairly depicted Israel as the aggressor.

CBC broadcast was devastatingly defamatory

The defendant CBC produced an hour-long television program which examined questions raised in the medical scientific community about the safety of heart medications known as Calcium Channel Blockers, particularly one called nifedipine.

The plaintiff, a doctor and research scientist, was interviewed. He brought an action for damages for defamation, alleging that the program, and the manner in which his interview was edited, created the innuendoes that he supported the prescribing of killer drugs; that he was in a conflict of interest; that he was receiving a pay-off or kickback from a leading pharmaceutical company; and that he acted negligently or dishonestly as the chairman of the ad hoc advisory committee of HPB.

The trial judge found that the words complained of did actually bear those meanings and that the broadcast was devastatingly defamatory of the plaintiff.

The trial judge concluded that this was as serious a libel as could be imagined. The defendants never apologized. Rather, to the very end, and throughout the trial, there was an uncompromising defence of their activities. The trial judge awarded $400,000 for general damages, aggravated damages totalling $350,000, and punitive damages totalling $200,000, for a total of $950,000.

Taking exception to CBC allegations

Earlier this week CBC published an article regarding a couple that is being investigated for immigration fraud. Rather than using an image of the couple being investigated, the lead image in the story prominently featured a photo of Doug, Gloria and other members of our staff. Further, the article alleges that individuals from Knight Archer Insurance were complicit in the scheme.

We take exception to the allegations in the article and are disappointed in the lack of care and attention shown by the CBC in its representation of Knight Archer. We can confirm that neither Knight Archer nor Gloria Archer are under any investigation with regards to the immigration fraud case. Instead, Gloria has been called as a witness for the prosecution in the case against the immigration consultant. We have and will continue to offer our full cooperation to the authorities as the case proceeds to trial.

CBC - Mother Station or Media Terrorist?

In the fall of 2015, CBC’s Marketplace commissioned lab testing on samples of fish oil, vitamin C and protein powder supplements, part of an investigation to determine whether consumers were getting what they paid for when purchasing natural health products. Based on those results, Marketplace reported that five of the products did not contain what was indicated on the label. The manufacturers strongly disputed the results and demanded the testing be re-done.

Turns out, the re-test found the original results to be false and the CBC issued a retraction. I found the entire situation – the intent of the story, the failing of the evidence, and the retraction – confusing. Clearly, the CBC wouldn’t have done the story unless they were determined to find something untoward? But why? For what reason would the CBC try to sell Canadians doubt about natural health? Don’t most Canadians understand that natural, preventative health practices and products are of huge benefit to us, individually, and – collectively, in terms of reduction of health care costs?

In 2017, HANS was sharing office space with another natural health nonprofit – Pure North S’Energy.

Every day I witnessed extraordinary extensions of kindness, compassion and love, from the Pure North staff to the patients.

That July two years ago, Pure North S’Energy was strategically attacked by the CBC through radio, television, print and online, based on the allegation that an elderly woman (uninjured) was over-prescribed Vitamin D at a Calgary clinic.

As a result, Pure North S’Energy Foundation lost their provincial funding. The organization, still operating, is now seeking $6 million in damages from the national broadcaster and two of its reporters, Charles Rusnell and Jennie Russell.

Why would our national broadcaster seek to destroy an organization that deserves to be celebrated?

From there, the CBC’s anti-natural health campaign ramped up. Individual chiropractors, naturopaths, homeopaths, and other practitioners, many friends of HANS, were publicly victimized by way of condescending, invalidating, misleading terminology and accusations. The CBC’s approach to natural health indicated something much more sinister than a mere media bias.

CBC Exposed is a call to action

CBC Exposed is a book like no other.

This book takes on the holy grail of the Canadian media landscape and lays bare the truth about CBC.

Reckless reporting at the state broadcaster has ruined lives and cost taxpayers millions upon millions in settlement costs yet no one has ever been held to account.

This book does what the consensus media cowards are afraid to do, tell the truth about CBC.

From reporting driven by vendettas to outright biases against conservatives, gun owners, Israel and any other group that doesn't fit their vision of Canada, CBC Exposed is a call to action to rein in this broadcasting giant.

Once you read this book you too will be convinced that the only way to tame the beast is to sell it.

CBC runs fake news poll as political propaganda

Oh boy, did the CBC screw up the other day:

Huge factual error, clear attempt to interfere with an election. Disinformation, meddling, fake news.

The sort of things they accuse others of doing.

The CBC has a series they call “Fact Check," so they can pretend they’re a referee, not a player, in the game of political manipulation.

By “fact check” the CBC means — Be the Liberal war room: Discredit enemies of Justin Trudeau, by digging up, say, an economist who disagrees with a conservative.

That's not fact-checking. That's just arguing.

CBC story is recklessly false

I like the writer, but this story is a pile of anti-Israel horse****.

In particular:
  • The story simply does not back up the shocker of a headline, that the federal government is “threatening” critics of Israel with criminal charges.  The screed is loaded with phrases and words like “could,” “would be,” “if,” “appears,” and so on.  There is no proof, anywhere, that Ottawa has charged a single person or group.
  • And that raises another factual error: to prosecute a hate crime, you first need the approval of the provincial Attorney General – not “Ottawa.”
  • That’s not all.  The CBC piece even alleges that groups and individuals are under illegal surveillance, without offering an iota of proof.
And so on, and so on.

I’m no fan of the leadership of the lead lobbyists for the Canada-Israel cause, to say the least.  

But this CBC tale is unfair and inaccurate, and the CBC should acknowledge as much.

CBC coverage given scathing critique by CBC ombudsman

The Insurance Bureau of Canada’s decades-long campaign to raise alarms about the ravages of floods continued last week with an appearance by Blair Feltmate, a favourite star climate-change witness for the biggest insurers, at the Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority’s annual meeting. Feltmate heads the industry-funded Intact Centre on Climate Adaptation at Waterloo University, which claims climate change has triggered a surge in flood events in recent years.

Robert Muir, an Ontario municipal engineer and member of the Ontario Society of Professional Engineers, complained to the CBC ombudsman, pointing to flaws in Feltmate’s and the insurance lobby group’s claims. He alleged that the CBC report was misrepresenting science and insurance risks.

In his review of Muir’s complaint, the ombudsman delivered a scathing critique of the CBC coverage on its Radio Canada International site, saying that the CBC report had “failed to comply with journalistic standards” in assessing and reporting on the industry’s claims.

What is wrong with CBC radio?

I’m not surprised that many of my friends have abandoned CBC Radio. From what I can tell, traditional listeners are leaving in droves.

A friend of mine who’s also a former CBC producer tells me he used to listen to CBC Radio all day. “Now,” he says, “I listen very little. The personal storytelling and victimhood are irritating and are in much of the schedule.”

Critical thought and analysis is limited to non-existent in these programs.

With the CBC strapped for resources, Radio One is sinking a whack of cash into these shows, which instead could be used to add programs that explore major thematic issues week after week.

CBC Radio is fixated on building an audience by providing trivial entertainment. For many managers, numbers are more important than content.

Did CBC Just Commit An Act Of Hate Speech?

On January 20, 2017, producers for the CBC program Marketplace printed t-shirts containing racist logos and mottos, including "white power" and "white pride world wide [sic]," and hired a middle-aged white man to stand on a Toronto street to peddle the t-shirts and yell racist slogans. 

Not only is this episode the epitome of so-called "fake news" -- fabricating a story in order to report it -- it's also deeply ironic. By broadcasting this content in Alberta, the CBC likely violated Alberta's hate speech law.

Absenteeism rife at CBC

Canadians paid nearly $18 million in one year for CBC employees who failed to show up to work.

According to the document, CBC employees were absent from work an average of 16.5 days. Statistics Canada figures in the report show public sector workers took an average of 12.6 days off while private sector workers took 8.9 days.

The report cites mental disorders as the leading cause of absenteeism (31% of all short-term absences and 44.6% of all long-term absences). The second leading cause was listed as "musculoskeletal problems."

CBC Claim is False

The CBC’s flagship National newscast recently reported distorted facts and ignored relevant material on the crisis in Venezuela. The result created a false moral equivalence between the democratic opposition trying to bring in desperately-needed aid and the brutal dictatorship of Nicol├ís Maduro that’s blocking food from getting to starving people.

CBC is selective with facts. It approvingly quotes Amnesty International saying U.S. sanctions on Venezuela’s oil “will surely hurt on the streets” but had not a bad word for the regime, which has inflicted massive human suffering.

In reality, oil money failed to reach “the streets” for years before the recent U.S. sanctions.

If anything, U.S. sanctions may deprive corrupt officials and the men with guns of some of their luxuries. But, and this must be emphasized, the CBC claim that food is not getting to the streets because of the U.S. is false.

This is not news and analysis, but spin to create a false equivalence while ignoring facts that directly contradict the spin.

How can CBC “unite” a country by attacking a faith

My relationship with the CBC as a listener ended about a decade ago when, during the course of a weekend’s air- time on Radio One, I heard veteran broadcaster Michael Enright make a series of crude anti-Irish jokes that might have provoked a few titters at an Orange Lodge, or been unremarkable banter in polite company almost a century ago, when Toronto was known as the Belfast of Canada.

I won’t bother unpacking the casual and time-honoured code that makes an Irish joke, by inference, a Catholic joke. There’s no point, since Enright has been quite forthright in his dislike of the Church, going back before the 1997 Globe and Mail article where he called it “the greatest criminal organization outside the mafia.” There’s probably some tortured back story here, as Enright went to the same private Catholic boys’ school I attended, but that’s also besides the point.

What is important is that there were thirteen million Catholics in Canada when Enright made his comment. One of the fondest refrains of the defenders of the CBC is that the national broadcaster “unites the country.” It’s a phrase used by Elizabeth May and the Green Party and by the Friends of Canadian Broadcasting, the interest group whose prime function is to refute attacks on the CBC in the public arena. It’s a strange institution that can “unite” a country by attacking the faith of over a third of its citizens.

CBC has assigned itself the job of fact-checker

CBC has assigned itself the job of fact-checker. But who fact-checks the fact-checkers?

“As part of our federal election coverage,” its website self-importantly declares, “CBC News is assessing the truthfulness, accuracy and plausibility of statements made by politicians and their parties.” Yes, the government-financed and government-owned broadcaster has assigned its very own self the job of assessing the “truthfulness, accuracy and plausibility” of politicians running for the Parliament that determines its budget.

CBC should engage in fact checking

Environmental filmmaker Andrew Nisker who calls himself an environmental activist, probes the manicured world of golf seeking answers to his many questions about the cause of a particular cancer and the source.

On Thursday March 2, 2017 at 8 PM on CBC-TV a documentary from The Nature of Things with David Suzuki called “Dad and the Dandelions” questions a connection between playing golf and cancer.

Cancer and the causes are very complex and to target golf courses specifically in a world where anything can be toxic is a stretch. In this world of “Fake News” CBC should engage in some fact checking to ensure the accuracy and truthfulness of a story before going to air.

CBC acknowledges false claim

CBC News has apologized for spreading false information about the Covington Catholic School students two months after the network first reported on it.

In January, CBC reported that after the Washington, DC March for Life, a group of students made an offensive chant in the face of a Native American protester, categorizing the students as “teenage bullies.”

The CBC is now acknowledging this claim was false.

Seeing that its false reporting caused significant damage to the students and spread a false narrative to the public, It remains unclear why CBC would so eagerly report on unverified claims in the first place.

CBC As It Happens Faces Serious Allegations

CBC Radio’s flagship current affairs program As It Happens is known for its aggressive accountability journalism and for asking unflinching questions, sometimes posed to the CBC itself. This past winter, As It Happens producers began approaching the CBC’s union, the Canadian Media Guild, with serious workplace complaints. Soon, CMG Toronto President Naomi Robinson compiled a list of 21 allegations from “about a dozen” current and former As It Happens producers. No official union grievances were filed.

This document, taken from an email sent by Robinson, was provided to CANADALAND by two sources who asked to stay confidential to protect their careers.

We spoke to seven current and former employees of As It Happens, all of them aware that human resources was reviewing the program. One of them was surprised about the severity of the allegations, but six others said they were familiar with the problems on the show.

None of the seven sources allowed us to use their names or include specific stories, fearing reprisal from the CBC. Speaking on background, we have confirmed the personal experiences they describe are in line with the complaints outlined in Robinson’s email. One said As It Happens “can be an abusive, terrible, manipulative workplace.”

How the CBC lost Hockey Night in Canada

From the initial radio broadcast with play-by-play by Foster Hewitt in 1926 to the move to television in the early 1950s, Hockey Night in Canada and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation were inseparable — until 2013, when Rogers Communications won the exclusive rights to broadcast NHL games in Canada in a 12-year, $5.2-billion deal.

How the CBC lost Hockey Night in Canada — and all the ways Rogers's big win went wrong — are detailed in Globe & Mail reporter David Shoalts's book, Hockey Fight in Canada: The Big Media Face Off Over the NHL.

According to Shoalts, the CBC didn't consider Rogers a threat — and it showed when then-CBC President Hubert Lacroix didn't attend negotiations with NHL's Commissioner Gary Bettman and Operating Officer John Collins.

CBC continues to report their competitors’ scoops often without credit

The public sees the slow dance between legacy media like the CBC and the Trudeau government. It’s right there in plain view, under a spotlight. It’s almost romantic.

Over the last few years, the organization seems to have moved more towards becoming an America obsessed news and entertainment platform hungry for advertising-driven content, rather than a wholesome public broadcaster out to tell the Canadian story.

As a result, I would even argue, the CBC has become destructive to the media ecosystem as a whole. Even with a $1 billion in annual grants, the CBC continues to report their competitors’ scoops often without credit, according to Canadaland.

When mistakes are not being made, and scooped competitors not going uncited, the CBC appears to be stuck making content which simply fails to grab the imagination of most Canadians.

CBC spends more time on US story than Canadian story

While Canada was in the middle of a nation-wide manhunt, CBC News spent far more time talking about the Robert Mueller hearings in the United States on social media.

According to our findings, on average, the Canadian public broadcaster dedicated approximately 26% of its social media posts for this day towards the Mueller hearings, while only 14% of that day’s content was on the Canadian manhunt.

According to these numbers, the channel dedicated over 88% of its video length towards the Mueller hearing, while only about 5% of the day’s video content was on the Canada-wide search, while a little over 6% was the rest of the day’s stories.

CBC no longer breaking big national stories like it used to

Just before election day in 2015, CBC’s then-president whinged that the public broadcaster was at risk of “extinction,” quote unquote. Justin Trudeau got the message. Once installed in power, Trudeau forked over $115 million to CBC. For good measure, it threw in another $35 million.

But despite that, CBC’s national impact continues to shrink. Its flagship news program — the one that used to literally determine what topics were covered in Question Period — is failing. In the past two years alone, its viewership has nose-dived a mammoth 24%.


A few weeks ago, even the CBC’s editor-in-chief Jennifer McGuire was forced to admit that The National isn’t all what it once was: “Are we pleased with the overall state of The National? I think the answer is no.”

She shouldn’t be pleased with the overall state of CBC’s relevance to the federal political scene, either. Despite being the recipient of millions in tax dollars — and despite being allowed to use that unfair advantage to compete in major markets with private-sector media competitors — the CBC simply isn’t breaking big national stories like it used to.

All of this can be answered right here. And remember, I watch the CBC so you don’t have to.

CBC’s ‘The National’ Is Getting Terrible Ratings

CBC has received a massive injection of taxpayer money under the Trudeau government.

Despite already being well-funded previously, Trudeau upped their budget to the point at which CBC now gets around $1.5 billion per year.

And that money is on top of the advertising revenue they receive, as CBC is allowed to benefit both from being State Media, and from the private advertising market.

This gives CBC a totally unfair advantage, putting private broadcasters on an unequal footing.

Yet despite this huge built in advantage, CBC is unable to convince people to watch their biggest news show – The National.

The National is now averaging 401,000 viewers – less than half of what CTV National News brings in.

CBC bosses losing moral compass

My friends, it’s time for a resistance. Specifically, a resistance against the direction that current management is taking CBC TV.

First came the news that CBC TV is investing heavily in the advertiser-friendly game show Family Feud Canada and bringing back the reality show Battle of the Blades. That’s bedrock commercial TV stuff, a craven move to get ratings and ad dollars. It’s fine, as long as the fluff is balanced by a plan to air substantial material. What CBC executives like to call “cerebral” content.

Was Canada pining for the return of Battle of the Blades? Were there torch-lit processions in towns and cities that I didn’t hear about? Nope. The show was done before and can be done again. That’s what commercial TV executives do when they’re desperate for ideas.

The desperate search for ideas recently became a very public issue when The Globe and Mail revealed that the bosses of the fifth estate had proposed a series of programs on the crimes committed by Paul Bernardo. Negative reaction from inside and outside the CBC was swift. And in its corporate reaction, CBC TV has been oddly defensive.

The very notion of a series focusing on Bernardo gave this country the creeps and understandably so. It’s a repulsive idea.

What the program proposal raises is the question of values at CBC TV. What moral compass do these CBC bosses have when it comes to balancing the need for a ratings win with the moral sensibility of this country?

CBC sued for using YouTube video without permission

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation is facing a lawsuit in the United States over the alleged use of a YouTube video without the owner’s permission.

In the suit filed Aug. 11 to the Western District court of New York state, Alfonzo Cutaia of Buffalo, N.Y., alleges that the CBC violated U.S. copyright law by using a video of a winter storm he filmed and uploaded to YouTube last year without his permission.


CNN is also named in the suit which claims CBC obtained the video — called Buffalo Lake Effect — from that organization.

The statement of claim, obtained by The Canadian Press, alleges CBC posted the video on the broadcaster’s website — cbc.ca — with the CBC logo as an overlay, and uploaded the video to Yahoo Screens’ website.

CBC sued for wrongful dismissal

When the CBC was sued by a former employee for wrongful dismissal last year, the public broadcaster filed a statement in response that included a laundry list of alleged bad behaviour that would get almost anyone fired from their job.

Audrey James, CBC Television’s former senior director of scheduling, was terminated for just cause on March 2, 2018, ending a 29-year career at the broadcaster.

According to the CBC’s statement of defence in her subsequent suit, James was found to have violated the CBC’s code of conduct and policies on harassment and ethics, after a series of complaints made around the spring of 2017. Among other things, they allege James “made scheduling decisions…based on the negative relationships James had with her colleagues.”

James’s lawyer tells CANADALAND that his client denies the allegations.

CBC sued for $6 million in damages

Pure North S’Energy Foundation is seeking $6 million in damages from the national broadcaster and two of its reporters, Charles Rusnell and Jennie Russell.

In its statement of claim, filed in Calgary Court of Queen’s Bench, True North says it has repeatedly asked the CBC to remove from the Internet what it says are inaccurate articles.

“Pure North’s reputation and work has been severely damaged as the result of an unrelenting broadcast campaign by the CBC and the reporters through various media which has had the result of damage to Pure North by spreading disinformation and mistruths about Pure North’s operation and practices,” it states

“Pure North has repeatedly requested that the CBC change its reporting to publicize accurate facts, and Pure North has supported its request with multiple pieces of scientific research and practice guidelines for medical practitioners which supports Pure North’s practices and operations.

“But CBC has refused to retract, correct, or apologize for its inaccurate reporting which it continues to publish on the Internet.”

The lawsuit details 28 separate paragraphs it says point to defamatory content published by the broadcaster.

CBC denies acting recklessly and maliciously

The CBC has filed a motion asking an Ontario court to toss out a $210-million lawsuit launched by Subway against the news network, which reported that the sandwich chain may have been selling some chicken products that were only about 50 per cent chicken DNA.

Subway launched the defamation lawsuit in April 2017, claiming a story by CBC's Marketplace caused it to suffer significant sales losses.

As part of its investigation, Marketplace had sent samples of chicken from five major fast-food restaurants to a lab for DNA analysis. The results suggested that some of Subway's chicken products may have comprised slightly more or slightly less than half chicken.

Subway disputed Marketplace's findings publicly after the story aired on television and radio Feb. 24, 2017, and was posted online.

It later filed a defamation lawsuit — which also named as defendants the reporter and two producers who worked on the program — claiming that CBC acted "recklessly and maliciously" in airing the Marketplace report and that the tests conducted on the chicken "lacked scientific rigour."

CBC sued over offshore taxes story

A statement of claim filed in Saskatoon Court of Queen's Bench involves a CBC story about Tony Merchant's offshore bank account worth $1.7 million.

The Merchants allege the broadcaster "cut and spliced interviews'' to portray them in the worst possible light, and they say the story suggested they'd been involved in unlawful conduct amounting to tax evasion.

The statement of claim, which contains allegations not proven in court, also alleges the story gave the impression that Sen. Merchant had breached Senate rules.

The claim also names two CBC reporters and a journalist with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists in Washington, D.C.

CBC accused of race baiting

I can think of few criminal cases that exposed Canada’s racial divide more than the Colten Boushie case has.

That divide widened when Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould chimed in expressing disappointment that “we” have to do better.

On Tuesday, the Civilian Review & Complaints Commission for the RCMP announced they have initiated an investigation of the RCMP’s original investigation to determine if it was conducted reasonably and whether race played a role.

That afternoon CBC published an online report with the headline, “RCMP ‘sloppy’ and ‘negligent’ in investigating Colten Boushie’s death, say independent experts.”

The report quotes several “independent” experts who concluded the RCMP investigation was seriously flawed and the organization “needs a lot more training.”

“The experts CBC consulted agreed that errors were made, but did not conclude it would have changed the outcome of the trial.”

The jury believed the defence.

Case closed.  So what was the point of the CBC article?

Retired Winnipeg Police Service Homicide Sergeant Tom Anderson thinks he knows.

Just another example of race baiting by Canada’s Federally funded news agency says the retired Homicide Sergeant.

CBC accused of being sloppy and negligent

In August 2016, a 22-year-old Aboriginal man from The Red Pheasant First Nation in Saskatchewan was shot dead by a farmer named Gerald Stanley, but that’s not where the story begins, nor where it ends.

CBC published a story accusing the RCMP of allowing Stanley to go home on the night of his arrest for murder without making a statement, and not seizing Stanley’s clothes to test for blood spatter and gunshot residue.

But neither of those things are true and there are court documents to prove it.

It was John Gormley who caught CBC faking the news about Stanley’s arrest. CBC only amended their story after they were caught. Talk about sloppy and negligent.

Loblaws paid CBC to air promotional content

On last night's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, I reported on Loblaws discreetly paying CBC to air promotional content.

It was a game show for amateur chefs. It was promoted across their platforms, including on Steven and Chris.

But it was bought and paid for by Loblaws, the crooked Liberal company that got $12 million for free fridges. We don't know how much Loblaws paid the CBC to run the show. But take a look at the release -- specifically, where show contestants agree that their recipe, name and likeness is licensed to Loblaws.

Go on a CBC game show, and you've just sold your rights to Loblaws. For free.

So how much money did Loblaws give to the CBC for this promotion? And how much of that money was part of a secret deal to prevent our state broadcaster from calling out this massive company for their bread price fixing scandal and for their free $12 million grant?

Fake news at CBC News

Two examples of fake news at CBC News

The CBC is a great source of fake news. The CBC controls the news across Canada. “CBC/Radio-Canada’s reach is 87%… of Canadians (who) watch or listen to something from their public broadcaster every month.” 

But the CBC is our champion you say, an honest source of news in a commercialized world. Let me give you an example of how the CBC reports Fake News.

How could the President of the CBC cheat on his expense claims and CBC printed just two stories exonerating him.

Here’s what happened. The CBC President claimed the same $30,000 in expenses twice. He tried to hide the facts but the story got out. CBC barely covered the story twice, using their own reporters who would be easy on their boss.

At the same time, when it served their purpose, the CBC went all out to report the phony $90,000 expense scandal of Senator Mike Duffy. I say phony because the judge at trial said it wasn’t true. Despite the lack of evidence, the CBC broadcast story after story painting Mike Duffy as a greedy, evil person who cheated Canadians.

Mike Duffy-as-crook fake news stories became a daily fixation for the CBC.

The ultimate CBC insider

The ultimate CBC insider exposes the controversies, successes and dead ends of his time at the top.

In 2004, CBC television had sunk to its lowest audience share in its history. That same year, Richard Stursberg, an avowed popularizer with a reputation for radical action, was hired to run English services. With incisive wit, Stursberg tells the story of the struggle that resulted -- a struggle that lasted for six turbulent and controversial years.

Shortly after Stursberg arrived, the corporation locked out its employees for two months. Four years later, he signed the most harmonious labour contract to date. He lost the television rights for the 2010 and 2012 Olympic Games. He won the biggest NHL contract in history. He had unprecedented ratings successes. He had terrible flops. He enjoyed the best radio, television and online ratings in CBC's history. He fought endless wars with the CBC president and board about the direction of the corporation and ultimately was dismissed.

This is the story of our most loved and reviled cultural institution during its most convulsive and far-reaching period of change. It is for those who think the CBC has lost its way, those who love where it is, and those who think it should not exist in the first place.

Does CBC serve Canada or Islamists?

Canada's state broadcaster, the Canadian Broadcast Corporation (CBC) consistently supports the Islamist cause, including direct cooperation with terrorist front groups. This support extends to editing domestic Canadian stories to ensure that even ISIS is not criticized in the domestic context. Given that the CBC is owned by the Government of Canada and funded by taxpayers with a billion dollar a year subsidy, the question arises as to whom they serve.

In short, the very groups the CBC relies on for commentary are Islamist in nature. These groups often advocate gross violations of human rights. The CBC is either aware of this and ignores it, or the people there are incompetent and do not check what their sources advocate.

CBC Using Children to Push Climate Propaganda

Everything CBC does lately is terrible, but this is just disgusting. CBC Kids News (why are we funding this?) tweeted a video of a nine year old girl implying that it doesn’t matter if people lose their jobs because of government climate policies because those people would be dead anyway if it wasn’t for those policies.

How CBC could promote this and target it at kids is appalling. Also, sitting there and letting a child believe that Canada’s industries could change the climate to the point that we’re all dead is immoral and disturbing. CBC is such a joke.

CBC's disgraceful propaganda

The state broadcaster is at it again with it’s disgraceful propaganda. CBC’s “The National” — pathetically in third place in the TV ratings for a Canadian nightly news broadcast, despite being given a $1.2 billion advantage over its competitors courtesy of taxpayers — disgustingly neglected to report on the conviction of former Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty’s chief of staff on Friday.

CBC really couldn’t care less about taxpayer money being wasted and the crippling debt that’s being incurred and the billions wasted in servicing the debt. They only feign outrage over wasted taxpayer money when Conservatives are in power and are the culprits because they know conservative voters don’t like to tolerate waste.

How else can you explain the CBC’s “The National” ignoring the verdict in the gas plant scandal, which, again, cost taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars?

CBC weather claims are misleading

Canada’s CBC here recently cited “a leaked report” which claimed Canada is “warming at twice the global rate.”

According to the “leaked report”, Canada’s annual average temperature over land has warmed 1.7 C when looking at the data since 1948. But that claim is misleading when recent data is considered.

Over the past 25 years, since scientists began to warn that the planet was warming in earnest, there has not been any warming when one looks at the untampered data provided by the Japan meteorology Agency (JMA) that were measured by 9 different stations across Canada.

So it is misleading — to say the least — to give the impression that Canada warming has been accelerating.

Even for the CBC this is a new low

I grew up on the CBC. For some years when I was young we lived in a remote area and the CBC was the only radio or television station that we had access to.

About ten years ago, I started to notice that the CBC was becoming increasingly very far-left.

The new leftism that the CBC was more frequently promoting was lacking in these ideals. This is the where things began to come to an end for the CBC and me.

I ask you, my interested reader, to please indulge me by reading two short news stories. These stories are on the same topic. One was published recently by the CBC and one was published by me. Please notice the massive disparity between the two. I was familiar with the facts of the story and had communications with those involved before the CBC published their version. When I read it, I thought that it was a new low, even for the CBC. I suggest that it is immoral for Trudeau to dump hundreds of millions of dollars into an organization that sets out to deliberately deceive and misinform our population.

A person who relies on the CBC for information is going to end up dangerously misinformed.

CBC Reaches Pathetic New Low

CBC’s recent interview with Maxime Bernier has brought Trudeau’s state propaganda network to a new low.

Wendy Mesley was clearly on a mission to demonize Bernier, throwing wild conspiracy theories at him rather than actually conducting a legitimate interview.

In just the first 10 seconds, the disgusting bias was obvious.

Mesley asked if Bernier’s party is “for all Canadians, or just the rich,” the kind of question that she and CBC would never ask Justin Trudeau.

It turns out that it was actually Native Elder, Nathan Phillips, who initiated the encounter, approaching the #MAGAKid, Nick Sandmann, and beating his drum right next to Sandmann.

CBC’s shoddy attack attempt

In an age where challenging the narrative and questioning the unquestionable are a rising trend, CBC’s shoddy attempt to attack our diverse organization only seems to have hurt their own credibility.

Don’t get me wrong. I still believe CBC should operate as a legitimate news website.

Keyword: legitimate.

What’s worse than CBC’s article is the response by Liberal MP Adam Vaughn who appears to think anyone to the right of him or, and in my case, the left of him is an “extremist.”

The article suggests that we operate in a “grey area” because some of our team members previously campaigned for conservative parties. What the article fails to mention is that some of our team members have also campaigned for the Liberals and the NDP in the past.

CBC is hypocritical when it comes to bias

How can they not see how hypocritical it is for a state-run broadcaster to criticize others for supposed ‘bias?’

The Post Millennial – which yours truly is proud to write articles for – has quickly become one of Canada’s fastest growing news and opinion outlets.

It features what you see in most online outlets today, a mix of news and opinion content.

And notably, it’s not taxpayer funded, refusing to force Canadian taxpayers to subsidize it.

None of that is remotely shocking or surprising.

Yet, to the CBC, it’s apparently big news!

And in an hilariously biased article, CBC attacked The Post Millennial.

Why you shouldn't believe CBC's latest claims

An op-ed published by CBC today states that the legalization of cannabis is based on "highly dubious claims and grossly optimistic expectations", and that the Liberal government should not proceed with the bill as planned.

In fact, the opinion piece in question has a series of its own issues, including a reference to a study that was debunked by a leading cannabis researcher in 2016.

The first indication that the piece should be taken with a grain (read: teaspoon) of salt is hidden in the author's description near the bottom of the story.

How to define a CBC President stereotype

CBC has a new president and she couldn’t fit the stereotypical mold better. Not that you would have heard of any of what I will tell you from the MSM coverage of her appointment.

The headlines mostly focused on one thing, CBC’s new president Catherine Tait, is a woman.

It does her long career in media a disservice to be frank. Tait has worked for decades in various aspects of the media in Canada and the United States, she has vital experience and that should have been the focus for people that care about the state broadcaster.

For me, what stands out about Tait the more I read about her is that she is a stereotype of what you would expect of a CBC head honcho.

From reports and public information we know that Tait supports left wing political causes and projects, is a Liberal donor and, as a producer, has made a bunch of stuff I’ve never heard of.

Isn’t that what you would expect of a CBC boss?

Has CBC sold off editorial control of news program

Has the cash-strapped CBC SOLD OFF editorial control of their flagship news program The National to the federal NDP? Or have they just GIVEN it to them?

Something has gone terrible awry with Canada’s public broadcaster, whose Journalistic Standards state:

“We are committed to reflecting accurately the range of experiences and points of view of all citizens. All Canadians, of whatever origins, perspectives and beliefs, should feel that our news and current affairs coverage is relevant to them and lives up to our Values.”

Not from what I’ve observed!

CBC accused of using children to indoctrinate Canadian kids in liberal ideology

Kids as young as 10 years old are the stars of what is being billed as a news show covering Ontario's sex-ed curriculum, transgenderism, and recreational marijuana on Canada's taxpayer-funded public broadcaster.

Say hello to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's CBC Kids News program.

The program's hosts are 15-year-old "entrepreneur and video producer" Campbell Baron, 14-year-old stage and voice actress Saara Chaudry, 10-year-old child actor Ari Resnick, and 11-year-old "budding entrepreneur" and clarinetist Isabelle MacNeil.

Ezra Levant, co-founder and host of the conservative news outlet The Rebel Media, has looked over many of the young hosts' reports and accuses CBC Kids News of using children to indoctrinate Canadian kids in liberal ideology.

"That's propaganda. That's super-gross," says Levant.

In a report for The Rebel, he pulls no punches in attacking the show, calling it little more than very thinly disguised propaganda for Liberal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Levant goes so far as to describe these CBC Kids News hosts as little more than puppets for the adult journalists and producers he maintains feed them their lines.

CBC Radio plans to have program appeal to American as opposed to Canadian listeners

When CBC management announced following the dismissal of Jian Ghomeshi last October that the radio program Q would be re-launched, I hoped that we might see a revival of true Canadian arts and culture programming in radio’s morning time slot.

The hiring of Shad was a clear signal that Q will not attempt to return to radio’s past. Thirty-two-year old Shad, who was born in Kenya and raised in Canada, is a heart-throb rapper with a Juno award and two university degrees to his credit. His music and youth orientation will suit him well in hosting the kind of program CBC management wants.

Some of the reasons behind the CBC’s decision to put out a mainly entertainment program in this time slot are rather disgraceful.

First of all, the CBC wants greater exposure on social media and as that’s a youth-oriented domain where they are trying to build audience. Okay, except that largely pop Internet programming will fly right over the heads of most folks over 35.

The bigger problem for me is that the CBC plans to have Q appeal to many thousands of young American listeners as opposed to a general Canadian audience.
