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.

Fifth Estate Follies - Episode 2

CBC urged to show greater transparency ...

CBC needs to show greater transparency in the way it spends taxpayer money, Sun Media and its owner, Quebecor, told the CRTC at the public broadcaster’s licence renewal hearings Monday.

Michel Drapeau, an access to information expert with Sun Media, complained that most of the 880 information requests over the past five years from journalists asking how its more than $1 billion in annual government funding is being spent, were ignored.

Customer Reviews - new CBC Exposed book ...

As a former National Reporter for CBC Television News, I can confirm Brian Lilley's book is right on the mark. We used to call the executive building on Jarvis St. 'the Kremlin' for a good reason; the place was full of leftists. Worst of all was the public affairs department which was completely out of control even 40 years ago.

CBC recently renewed an agreement to sell its news stories to Microsoft ...

CBC may be willing to take $1 billion from taxpayers each year to produce its news content, but the state broadcaster is tight-lipped about what it earns selling that same material to some of the biggest companies in the world.

In a move that continues to pit the government-subsidized CBC against other privately owned media companies, CBC recently renewed an agreement to sell its news stories to Microsoft. Microsoft then posts CBC news stories on its website.

An access to information request for details of the contract included several pages that were close to blank with all pertinent material removed.

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

During its coverage of the mass murder in Norway, CBC television was interviewing their “security expert,” Bill Gillespie.

There was a lot for Gillespie to talk about that day — whether the confessed killer, Anders Breivik, was part of a larger organization, or why a Muslim terrorist group had claimed responsibility, etc.

But Gillespie also seems to have had other things on his mind that day — Jews.

So when he was asked about extremist groups he said this: “The Jewish Defence League is a banned terrorist organization in Canada.”

That’s not an opinion; it’s a statement of fact.

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

Except it’s not true.

'Major challenge' for CBC / Radio-Canada ...

Canada's broadcast regulator plans to scrap a fund financed by cable companies and used by television stations to support local programming, a move that some say will take a toll on smaller markets.

The CRTC plans to phase out the Local Programming Improvement Fund by the end of August 2014. 

President and CEO of CBC/Radio-Canada Hubert T. Lacroix said the elimination of the fund will pose a major challenge for the public broadcaster.

CBC Perks - the top payment for an executive car at CBC was $19,700 ...

Canadians are paying out a pretty penny to have CBC executives and top talent drive around in cushy cars. 

According to a partial list released by CBC through access to information, taxpayers shelled out $291,337.74 in 2010 for yearly car allowances for 35 vehicles, some costing nearly $20,000 per year. 

Canada's best-selling car, the Honda Civic can be purchased for just $14,580, according to the Honda Canada website.

Meanwhile, the top payment for an executive car at CBC was $19,700 - far in excess of what would be needed to lease and gas up a high-end Mercedes each year. Mercedes is marketing its E-Class sports coupe - a $61,000 car - as available for lease from $778 per month, far less than the $1,641 a month paid out to CBC's top executive.

CBC hides hockey dough as vital to national interest ...

With the NHL lockout dragging into its third month it's no secret that CBC's revenue from live games is zero, but the state broadcaster has also released documents claiming zero revenue for the entire 2006-07 season when there was no lockout.

CBC Plans to Go More Commercial ...

The introduction of unlimited ads on two CBC radio services, Espace musique and Radio Two, would signal the end of commercial-free CBC radio. We believe the next step would be the introduction of ads on Radio One and La Premiere Chaine -- a direct result of cuts to CBC's parliamentary grant ...

The CBC is already over-exposed commercially because of its reliance on Hockey Night in Canada to make ends meet. Both Bell and Rogers have expressed an interest in bidding on HNIC, in negotiations with the NHL next year.

The move towards more commercialization will turn CBC into a private broadcaster which loses one billion dollars a year ...

CBC struggles go under the microscope ...

The CRTC will begin 10 days of hearings on the CBC licence renewal, the first such set of hearings in 13 years.

Although the CBC’s licence is not in question, the public broadcaster’s future and its ability to deliver on its mandate with depleted resources is very much in play.

Thousands lined up for their chance to air their grievances before the commission.

The hearing will deal with the CBC’s overall strategy in a fractured media landscape, its regional and northern services, its compliance with access to information requests, and its desire to begin advertising on Radio 2 and Espace musique.

No matter what the CBC argues, a large percentage of Canadians will oppose its goals. It’s in our DNA.

The CBC already has iconic status as the country’s favourite whipping boy. Even after exacting its pound of flesh with a 10 per cent funding cut announced in last spring’s budget, Conservative MPs can’t help themselves.

In the last week alone, Alberta MP Peter Goldring, a Conservative who now sits as an independent, questioned whether the CBC was for or against Canada and said its corporate headquarters was the heart of evil in this country.

PM Harper: No tears for CBC revenue problems ...

The CBC shouldn't come crying to him for more money, Prime Minister Stephen Harper says, even if a continuing NHL lockout reduces ad revenue from Saturday night hockey broadcasts.

"CBC has its funding voted annually by Parliament," Harper said Friday from Quebec City. "That is the amount we are giving it for the year."

The last federal budget trimmed taxpayer support for the state broadcaster by about $55 million and ended a special $60-million subsidy for Canadian content production.

That means the state broadcaster will have to make do with about $1 billion from taxpayers, plus almost $370 million in ad revenue.

The loss of NHL hockey for a whole season could knock $130 million off CBC English TV ad revenue, according to the Friends of Canadian Broadcasting — a figure the CBC wouldn't confirm.

New Democrats are now circulating a petition calling on the Conservatives to reverse CBC budget cuts and provide "adequate and stable funding."

Poll blasts CBC use of tax dollars in court ...

A majority of Canadians - 64% - believe the CBC should not spend tax dollars to fight its legal battle with Canada's independent ombudsman, who investigates transparency complaints, according to a poll by the research firm Abacus Data.

"Sixty-four percent of Canadians say it is wrong, only 10% say it is right. I think on this issue, the CBC is clearly on the wrong side of public opinion," Dr. David Coletto, who leads Abacus Data's team of consultants and strategists, said.

CBC's attack on Canadian Forces no laughing matter ...

Last week the CBC got its hands on an amateur video produced by some of our soldiers for a comedy night at a military base in Nova Scotia back in 2010.

It was a short, four-minute spoof making fun of Osama Bin Laden’s older brother, “Eugene.”

The CBC has more than a dozen comedians and comedy writers on staff, but it asked its one visible minority, Shaun Majumder — the same guy who usually plays bin Laden on the CBC — to explain why he can do it but soldiers can’t.

Majumder was pitiful. He said he can do it because he’s a professional and the soldiers weren’t. He said he’s culturally sensitive and the soldiers weren’t.

And he said that in the anti-Muslim “backlash” in the West, it’s never OK to mock Islam. Except when he does it.

Majumder should stick to comedy — not being a snitch on The National, ratting out other comedians as hate criminals.

And the CBC should stop its smear campaign against our Canadian Forces.

Ruining the Good Doctor's Name - from CBC Exposed ...

In short, CBC destroyed the life the Leenens had known.

When the case went to trial the evidence overwhelmingly showed that CBC left out key information, distorted the views offered up by Dr. Frans Leenen and had generally worked at making the interviews fit the story they had decided on before the project even began.

The court also had access to outtakes from the filming process.

"We have set up the idea that this committee is tainted with these kind of company-bought people." host Trish Wood is heard saying to producer Nicholas Regush.

At another point Regush encourages Wood to use her famous sneer.

The evidence taken together resulted in condemnation from the bench through a strongly worded judgment from Justice Cunningham.

CBC Exposed – If You Value Truth, This Book Will Make You Mad As Hell ...

Brian Lilley, host of Byline on the Sun News Network and senior correspondent for Sun Media’s Parliamentary Bureau has unveiled his new book — CBC Exposed.

And exposed it is. For anyone who’s had it up to here with the Ceeb’s left-wing whining, this book definitely rocks.

Lilley signed copies of his latest work at a downtown Ottawa hotel on November 7 2012, and several Conservative M.P.s, cabinet ministers and staffers lined up to offer congratulations and purchase a copy. Some bought multiple copies to give as Christmas presents. Lilley cites chapter and verse where the CBC has seriously strayed from its mandate as an unbiased bastion of factual reporting.

The CBC should stop its smear campaign against our Canadian Forces ...

Last week the CBC got its hands on an amateur video produced by some of our soldiers for a comedy night at a military base in Nova Scotia back in 2010.

It was a short, four-minute spoof making fun of Osama Bin Laden’s older brother, “Eugene.”

The CBC says it got this video last month. But it sat on it for weeks, in order to release it as a big, breathless exclusive right before Remembrance Day.

It’s obvious why. It was the CBC’s way of showing what it thinks of our Canadian Forces: That they’re a bunch of racist pigs.

The CBC said the video was an exclusive. But it actually wasn’t. Because the CBC called the military police to come watch the video at the CBC offices.

The CBC isn’t just reporting on this “scandal.” It is pitching it to the police, with the implication that the police should lay charges.

 The CBC isn’t even pretending to be reporters. It is an anti-military activist.

The problem is that the video that it breathlessly “revealed” wasn’t controversial at all. It was a soldier pretending to be bin Laden’s brother, hiding out in Vancouver.

So how did the CBC square the fact that it has comedians speaking in accents and beards mocking bin Laden, with its scandalous “exclusive” that our Canadian Forces did it, but they were “offensive?” The CBC has more than a dozen comedians and comedy writers on staff, but it asked its one visible minority, Shaun Majumder — the same guy who usually plays bin Laden on the CBC — to explain why he can do it but soldiers can’t.

Majumder was pitiful. He said he can do it because he’s a professional and the soldiers weren’t. He said he’s culturally sensitive and the soldiers weren’t.

And he said that in the anti-Muslim “backlash” in the West, it’s never OK to mock Islam. Except when he does it.

Majumder should stick to comedy — not being a snitch on The National, ratting out other comedians as hate criminals.

And the CBC should stop its smear campaign against our Canadian Forces.

Brian Lilley highlights CBC wrongdoing ...

Lilley describes how the CBC, in the name of “freedom of expression” and “public interest,” destroyed the reputation and living of a respected cardiologist and researcher, Dr. Frans Leenen, by (as Lilley says) “making the interviews fit the story they had decided on before the project even began.”

The accusations against Dr Leenen aren’t the point — they occurred prior to 2000. Suffice to note that in court, Justice Cunningham said the CBC program characterized him “dishonestly and misrepresented his views” ... portrayed him as “a devious, dishonest, bumbling fool” when all the time they knew he was “a person of high integrity and reputation.”

Even when the court found in favour of Dr. Leenen and awarded him $950,000, the CBC appealed (incurring more legal costs that the public paid), and even then refused to apologize or admit error.

Edmonton area MP takes aim at CBC access requests ...

An Edmonton MP is aiming to open up the CBC to more access to information requests in a new private member’s bill.

Edmonton – St. Albert MP Brent Rathgeber couldn’t disclose all of the details of his private member’s bill Sunday because it won’t go to the House of Commons until Monday afternoon.

He said generally he is trying to correct a problem with how the CBC has used an exemption for the journalistic and creative activities in dealing with access to information requests.

“The act as currently written allows the CBC to take sort of a blanket exemption approach that if any [access] requests deal with their journalistic programming or creative activities they just refuse to disclose.” 

CBC spokesperson Angus McKinnon said the broadcaster would wait to see the bill before commenting on it.

CBC contributor Andrew Coyne argued the state broadcaster is no longer necessary ...


The Canadian War Museum was a fitting venue Thursday to debate whether the taxpayer-funded CBC is as outdated as the vintage army vehicles housed in the memorial bunker.

Post Media columnist and CBC contributor Andrew Coyne argued the state broadcaster is no longer necessary in a multi-channel, digital universe and that all taxpayers are paying for something the majority don't watch or listen to.

Coyne told an overwhelmingly CBC-friendly crowd that today's viewers and listeners have a menu of pay-as-you-go options "to suit every taste, high or low, broad or narrow" that don't rely on scarce public funds.

"At a bare minimum, then, I would put the CBC on pay. It could still be a public broadcaster, but one funded by its audience, rather than taxpayers. If its viewers are as devoted as claimed, they should be happy to pay."
