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.

CBC won't report moonlighting earnings ...

CBC takes $1.1 billion from the taxpayers and moonlights on the side to earn extra cash, but the state broadcaster isn't willing to say what it makes from its various business ventures.


A 77-page report on CBC's revenue-generating activities shows the broadcaster rents out space, sells the rights to its programming and is involved in several other business ventures to make extra cash, but CBC doesn't release how much money it earns.

CBC's own poll says broadcaster lacks vision ...

CBC should open up about exec pay ...

A taxpayer advocacy group is calling on CBC to be as open about the salaries for their top executives as executives of some of Canada's top companies are.


"If disclosure of executive compensation for publicly traded companies serves the public interest, then we as coerced shareholders of the state-funded broadcaster are certainly concerned by the culture of secrecy that refuses similar disclosure by executives at the CBC," said Stephen Taylor, director at the National Citizen Coalition.

CBC has repeatedly refused to disclose the salaries or bonuses of their top executives unlike many publicly traded companies.

CBC gets timeout to plead for more cash ...

The CRTC has postponed licence renewal hearings for the CBC until next June - a delay that will allow the state broadcaster to plead its case for more money from Heritage Minister James Moore and Canadian taxpayers.

CBC hasn't had a licence renewal in 12 years, and argues it needs a fistful of new dollars to keep Coronation Street, Jeopardy, Wheel of Fortune and other shows on the dial.

Private broadcasters, including Sun News Network, rely on advertising revenues and are at a disadvantage when it comes to budget forecasts because they can't count on guaranteed taxpayer handouts.

CBC uses its huge public subsidy to compete unfairly ...

The CBC supposedly exists to tell Canadians their story in ways for-profit networks would not. But the state broadcaster is anything but an old-style, non-commercial public radio and television company. Its tentacles now extend everywhere in the media universe except perhaps print, and it uses its huge public subsidy to compete unfairly in countless areas where the government has no excuse for intruding.

Indeed, it has always been unfair that the CBC airs American shows, bidding up their cost to private Canadian networks with whom it also competes for advertising dollars. But the problem goes far beyond such obvious injustices.

CBC legal spending into millions ...

Despite having a team of 20 in-house lawyers on their payroll, the CBC has been spending more than $3.3 million each year for legal services from private law firms.

Documents obtained through Access to Information laws — to which the CBC has been subject to for just two years — revealed that the public broadcaster spent more than $23 million in legal contracts with private firms between 2000-01 and 2006-07. That averages out to $3.3 million annually, with a peak of $4.7 million in 2003-04.

Bull****, bull****, and more bull****, actions from CBC?

Why, has the CBC steadily erased just about all - CBC English local programming in Montreal and Quebec: when in fact their 'supposed mandate', is to grow English Quebecers programming in Quebec ... because, we are the OFFICIAL Minority population in Quebec, and recognized as such by Canada.

And - given, CBC's responsibility is, to concentrate on growing - French local programming -OUTSIDE- Quebec, NOT inside Quebec, because Francophones are Officially a Minority group, as we all know - in the rest of Canada, and the MAJORITY in Quebec; why has CBC spent so much of its budget, over the past few decades, on French programming IN Quebec - and yet NOTHING on English programming IN Quebec?

This week, the CBC discovered the “joke” was on them.

Duceppe-CBC 'misunderstanding' a joke.

Even during the dog days of summer, Canadians from coast to coast were roused from their slumber — and they expressed honest-to-goodness outrage. Outrage that untold thousands of their tax dollars would go to a separatist who is entitled to collect a $140,000 annual MP’s pension. Outrage that the CBC would hire someone who had been repudiated by millions of Quebec voters, and only a few weeks ago, too. Even leading francophone voices, like the Toronto Star’s Chantal Hebert, called the situation intolerable.

CBC: Bias and secrecy

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation is not behaving like an independent media company in this (recent) election campaign.

They're not even acting like a left-wing state broadcaster anymore.

No: They are looking like a partisan advocacy group, determined to shape the outcome of the election campaign, not just report it.

That is unacceptable.

Gilles Duceppe drops Radio-Canada gig ...

Former Bloc Québécois leader Gilles Duceppe has resigned from his new job as a commentator for Radio-Canada before ever making it to air.

"We understand Mr. Duceppe's decision, and we regret that he wasn't told right from the start about the constraints imposed by our standards and practices," said Anne Sérode, who oversees Radio-Canada's Première Chaine, the equivalent of CBC Radio One.

Watchdogs question Duceppe’s CBC gig ...

After spending nearly 20 years in Parliament fighting to break up Canada and getting a gold-plated pension of $140,765 a year for his efforts, Duceppe is sucking from the public trough again as a new voice on the state broadcaster. Radio-Canada – the French radio arm of the CBC – hired the defeated Bloc leader, 64, to contribute weekly to a two-hour daily morning show to chat about sports, culture, science and social issues.

“I don’t think that would sit well with Canadians no matter what political party they happen to support,” CTF national director Gregory Thomas said about the double-dipping.

Thomas also raised concerns over whether the hiring of a separatist violated the section of the Broadcasting Act that directs the CBC to be predominantly and distinctively Canadian.

“It brings into question whether the state has a role in broadcasting at all.”

CBC slams evangelical involvement on The Hill ...

On February 10, CBC journaliste Brigitte Bureau launched into a 30-minute documentary that claimed to show how some evangelical Christians have undue influence in Ottawa, particularly when it comes to Conservative MPs and Senators. To call the documentary "reporting" would be an insult to all first-year journalism students across Canada.

A safety inspector in the Yukon is suing the CBC for publishing what he says is a malicious and professionally damaging attack on its web comment board.

According to The Canadian Press, Robert Scott's weight, his competence and his credibility all come under fire in the post, which he says in his statement of claim clearly breaks the national broadcaster's own guidelines.

The Dirty 30 and CBC’s name shame ...

The Harper government’s initial refusal to release the names and photos of suspected war criminals living in Canada was puzzling.

The ongoing decision of the CBC not to show the now-released names and photos is mind-boggling. 

It was through stories, columns and editorials in newspapers like this one and broadcasts on Sun News Network that pressure built on Public Safety Minister Vic Toews to change his mind and release the identity of the suspects Canada wants to deport.

A CBC spokesman has said the state broadcaster will not release the names and faces because of their journalistic standards.

Despite getting their $1.1-billion taxpayer subsidy from the Harper government and even an extra $60 million in the most recent budget, the CBC disagrees with the government’s positions on crime and immigration.

This class proceeding concerns the use and allocation of pension surplus from the CBC Pension Plan (the “Plan”).

This action alleges that CBC breached the terms of a Surplus Allocation Agreement with Plan members, pursuant to which surplus in the Plan was historically apportioned between CBC, active employees and CBC Pensioners.

CBC's $600,000 July 1 party

The CBC, as every taxpayer should know, loses $1.2 billion a year. If it didn't lose $1.2 billion a year, then there would be no need for the taxpayer to prop it up every year with $1.2 billion of its money.

So why then is the CBC, funded by the government, paying the same government some $600,000 for the television rights to our Canada Day celebrations when a private sector broadcaster purchasing the rights could actually put money in our pockets?

Whose side is the CBC on?

The CBC said the Jewish Defence League (JDL) is a terrorist group.

The Canadian government has an official list of about 50 terrorist groups. You can see them on the website of the department of Public Safety. The JDL isn’t on them.

It’s slander. But it’s standard operating procedure at the CBC. These are the same folks that led the witch hunt accusing our Canadian Forces of being war criminals in Afghanistan.

CBC won’t dish on party costs ...

You may be paying for CBC to celebrate its 75th anniversary but don’t expect the state broadcaster to tell you what it is spending on the celebrations.

CBC cites several reasons for refusing to release costs, including that to do so would be against the economic interests of Canada and that the information is “advice or recommendations developed by or for a government institution or a minister of the Crown” and so, apparently, not accessible.

CBC president Hubert Lacroix has told MPs that “only a judge” - not an officer of Parliament - can tell his organization what to release.

CBC wrong about Nova Scotia having "highest taxes in Canada" ...

CBC anchor Tom Murphy peered sternly into the camera during the six o’clock TV news on Tuesday to deliver the day’s top story: “Confirmation tonight of what many Nova Scotians have long suspected,” Murphy said with a knowing shake of his head. “We pay more in taxes than anywhere else in the country.”

Yet the report also says: “Within Canada, Nova Scotia’s average total effective tax rate is third highest among the provinces.”

Tories take us for fools on CBC

Speaking to CBC's Q talk show -- where else? -- Moore said CBC was not outside Finance Minister Jim Flaherty's pronouncement that all government departments would be subject to finding a minimum of 5% in budget cuts.

But then, lo and behold, the latest federal budget quietly gave the CBC an extra $60 million in welfare.
That pushes its annual stipend to almost $1.2 billion.

Now, for all you math geniuses who didn't go to school just for recess, what's 5% of $1.2 billion?
Right you are. It's exactly $60 million.

Heritage Minister Moore gives the CBC $60 million with no specific earmark so all it has to do is hand the cheque back to meet Flaherty's demand for a 5% cut.
