How much CBC News does the world need? Right now, there’s the main CBC TV network, which carries CBC News programs plus documentaries and current affairs programs. Then there’s CBC News Network (CBCNN), a cable channel delivering news 24/7, plus documentaries and current affairs programs.
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 2021 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 2021 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.
CBC doesn’t really do local news anymore. But if you hadn’t noticed, don’t fret! You are among the vast majority of Canadians who don’t pay much attention to what CBC is up to. Fewer than 330,000 thousand people in our country of nearly 38 million tune in to watch CBC’s dinner-time broadcasts.
I recently reported how back in March, CBC cancelled some local, English-language broadcasts, citing the coronavirus pandemic. This bizarre action actually breached the conditions of the network’s broadcast license.
To help Canadians fill the void left by local news broadcasts no one watched in the first place being cancelled, CBC has now published the “Local News Directory,” a list of outlets, searchable by city, that the CBC deems as reputable sources of information.
The program interviewed Diana Buttu (pictured right), a Palestinian-Canadian lawyer and a former spokesperson for the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) who said that the deal represented a “stab in the back” for Palestinians. (Queue to the 27:00 mark to listen to the interview). For Buttu, the deal was “shameful, disgusting and a real let down…. Israel is being rewarded for its ‘illegal behavior.'”
Oddly titled: “Palestinian UAE Deal” (not Israel and UAE deal) CBC guest host Peter Armstrong (former CBC Mideast bureau chief) lobbed softball questions to Ms. Buttu which gave her ample opportunity to condemn the normalization deal without challenge.
CBC commentator and president of Pomp & Circumstance PR, Amanda Alvaro failed to disclose to the public broadcaster that her company received $16,950 from the Department of Foreign Affairs, which would directly conflict with the Journalistic Standards and Practices at the CBC: "it is important to mention any association, affiliation or specific interest a guest or commentator may have so the public can fully understand that person’s perspective."
Additionally, Alvaro received an added $24,997 contract to provide "communications advice" to Trudeau's Minister of Women Maryam Monsef, according to Blacklock's Reporter.
To the surprise of no one, Alvaro has made frequent appearances of CBC's Power & Politics, wherein she defended the Trudeau Liberals in their ongoing WE Charity scandal.
The CBC only chose to edit out the question and answer that related to the CBC's federal funding. No other answers were cut from the interview.
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.
I have several friends in the journalism industry, and they all report the same reality – that everyone wants a CBC job because they are better-paying and much more cushy in terms of benefits and expectations. While this might be great for the unionized workers at CBC, it is definitely not advantageous to the average Canadian. Nor is it fair to the other networks that compete with the CBC.
We don’t have to do away with the CBC entirely, just pair it down and call it what it really is. Why are we trying to fund an entity to compete with the legitimate businesses? Instead, let’s allow the CBC to become a specialized niche channel that is a Canadian version of PBS.

Canadian political Twitter was quick to react to Barton's inappropriate and apparently partisan cheer.
Barton tried to clean up her mess by tweeting a clarification that she simply jsut loves the poll tracker itself and not the favourable result for Trudeau ...
Barton has been at the centre of other controversies regarding her bias. She famously took a selfie with Justin Trudeau that was roundly mocked around the country, and she was a plaintiff in a lawsuit by the CBC against the Conservative Party during the last election.
One of those fired was Anne Wilson. On top of donating a grand total of $23,846.86 to New Democrat parties across Canada, Wilson would forward Notley fundraising pages to her followers like it was her day job.
Another recent fire, Lise Gotell, breathlessly praised her savior Rachel Notley on Twitter during the 2015 election.
The CBC was furious that the legacy of the NDP was being washed away before their eyes. The CBC can’t stand seeing all their hard work propping up the Notley Government go to waste.
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.
The CBC is also attempting to indoctrinate children by its program, CBC Kids News, which is thinly disguised propaganda to promote the left wing agenda.

Twitter has added a warning to one of U.S. President Donald Trump's tweets about protests in Minneapolis over the death of George Floyd in police custody, saying it violated the platform's rules ...
Yet technology is a blessing, not a curse, particularly for media consumers. It has allowed audiences access to the world of news and entertainment in an instant, regardless of their geographical location.
That access to diverse voices and views has been delivered by the private sector, making CBC irrelevant in the 21st century. Furthermore, its very existence actually poses a threat to journalists and members of the media working in the private sector. As a government agency, CBC is competing with private sector media outlets for audience and those audiences have value or CBC would not be able to sell advertising on television or on Radio 2. Every audience member and advertising dollar CBC takes hurts the viability of local media outlets across the country (and the good-paying jobs those outlets provide), starting locally with the Prince George Citizen and the four local private radio stations and one local TV station.
