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 TV's death knell

Rogers' announcement of its 12-year, $5.2 billion deal for NHL broadcasting rights has left the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's hockey coverage on thin ice.

Although the CBC will continue to have Hockey Night in Canada on Saturday nights for the next four years, but after that, it's lights out. The loss of the NHL's signature game could be one of the final nails in the coffin of the CBC, which only exists due to the generosity of the federal government.

If CBC TV had to actually meet its own operations budget by procuring advertising revenue to cover the cost of its various, dubious and marginal programs, it would have been out of business many years ago.

CBC is losing all of it's hockey revenue

The CBC is in trouble. It is losing all of its hockey revenue – but keeping about 320 hours a year of hockey, including Hockey Night in Canada – under the NHL’s new Canadian broadcast rights deal.

Rogers is making big moves to control ever more Canadian media and the announcement on Tuesday that they’re essentially taking over hockey rights across Canada is an enormous move.

Losing hockey is a big deal for the CBC. They’ll keep Hockey Night in Canada for four years on a sub-contract from Rogers, but they don’t own the content anymore. They will not even get the advertising revenue from the broadcasts. They also will not pay for the rights to the games. All that falls to Rogers.

Back during the NHL lockout, Friends of Canadian Broadcasting spokesperson Ian Morrison said the loss of hockey at the CBC would be a “game changer.”

“All told, the loss of hockey would be much worse than the most recent round of cuts from the federal budget. It would be a game changer for our national public broadcaster,” he wrote.

CBC President Warns Of Legal Showdown With Government

The CBC is warning the federal government that its efforts to control salary negotiations at the Crown agency could be at odds with the Broadcasting Act and the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, leading to litigation.

Canadian Broadcasting Corp. chief executive Hubert Lacroix sent a letter to the Commons finance committee today, pleading for an amendment to the budget implementation bill to ensure the broadcaster's independence.

But when Liberal MP Scott Brison read parts of the letter to Finance Minister Jim Flaherty, the minister stiffly dismissed any possibility of changes to the bill.

"The CBC may think it is a special, independent, Crown agency. This is wrong," Flaherty said.

"All Crown agencies have a responsibility through ministers, back to Parliament, to the people of Canada. They can't do whatever they want, particularly with taxpayers money. They can't just go off and pay their executives and pay everybody else whatever they want to pay them."

CBC President - “only a judge can tell me what to release”

Last night we told you about the cozy, economically beneficial relationship between CBC and much of the consensus media.

They don’t report critically on this $1.1 billion government department because being nice to the state broadcaster is good for business.

We’ve also told you about CBC refusing to release details on how they spend that $1.1 billion that they get from you and I.

We’ve asked for information on how much we pay for absenteeism, how much CBC spent on finding a new theme song for Hockey Night in Canada, even what we will pay for the 75th anniversary party they are planning.

We know that they are spending because we can see ads like this one from the Globe and Mail, ads that run at the same time as the glowing articles on how great CBC, the biggest customer of a Globe owned business, really is.

But while you are told to pay for the party, CBC and their president Hubert Lacroix, say they are under no obligation to release costs.

But while Hubert “only a judge can tell me what to release” Lacroix won’t respond through official channels, he will respond to angry emails which call him Herbert and accuse CBC of acting inappropriately.

CBC President hires person who has never worked in either radio or television programming

The president of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation defended his decision on Wednesday to hire Heather Conway, an executive at the Art Gallery of Ontario who has never worked in either radio or television programming, to head up the public broadcaster’s English-language services.

Conway’s predecessor, Kirstine Stewart, who departed CBC in April to become the head of Twitter Canada, had deep experience as a television programmer, but Lacroix insisted that was not a prerequisite for a position that ultimately approves the expenditure of hundreds of millions of dollars on content.

CBC should be sold - Canadian Centre for Policy Studies

The CBC is a money-losing state broadcaster that should be stripped of $1.16 billion in public handouts, says a new report.

The Canadian Centre for Policy Studies argues the broadcaster fails to deliver true dollar value to taxpayers, and it lacks neutrality in its news reporting and accountability.

“The CBC is a world-class broadcaster,” says the report written by David Krayden. “It is for that very reason that we believe that the CBC can survive without a yearly infusion of unearned income.”

Why did the CBC say this was secret information?

The CBC has released a list of how many vehicles it owns - years after telling taxpayers the information was secret. 

The broadcaster controls a fleet of 728 vehicles, documents show.

That's a far cry from the lone Ford sedan it said it owned in redacted documents released two years ago that hid behind Section 68.1 of federal access laws.

Cut the CBC - Letter to the Editor

The organization known as "Friends of Canadian Broadcasting" has descended to a new low in its effort to demonize Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

Their "Free the CBC" advertising campaign is particularly distasteful in its portrayal of the PM as a Tony Soprano-like character who consigns opponents to the trunk of a car and the tender mercies of a pair of thugs.

I'm not of Italian decent but the stereotyping evident in this video is disturbing .

I support the government's efforts to control spending on its employees wages and benefits, and that includes the wages and benefits enjoyed by employees of crown corporations, including the CBC.

Justin Trudeau gaffe - CBC mop up

There are two parts to a Justin Trudeau story.

The first part is the gaffe.

For example, two weeks ago Trudeau proposed a carbon tax.

That’s a shockingly bad policy. And announcing it at Calgary’s Petroleum Club made it clear, the tax wouldn’t be shared equally by Canadians. It would be an Alberta-centric tax, Liberal-style.

That was the gaffe. So then the Media Party did a mop up.

But part two of any Trudeau gaffe is the Media Party’s clean-up of it. Other than the National Post and Sun Media, Trudeau’s announcement was buried by the Media Party.

Trudeau says something that shows how poor his judgment is, how inexperienced he is, how clueless he is. And the Media Party ignores it – or goes to his rescue.

Call it a preview of the 2015 election campaign.

A CBC less fluffy and more feisty

Some would say CBC-TV should be left alone to get on with the grim business of laying off staff and cancelling some shows. Others would say the situation offers an opportunity to breathe new life into the broadcaster.

“Our job is to adjust, take this in, and move on,” CBC president Hubert Lacroix said recently to journalists. And he’s right. Move on, move forward. A smaller, stronger CBC must be the goal. A CBC less fluffy and more feisty.

What the CBC needs is an emphatic style of its own. Not the CBC News Network as it is now, with its endless repetition of gee-whiz footage of a fire on a California highway.

If there is less money for news coverage, then what can be covered better with fewer resources? Don’t, for heaven’s sake, strike a committee to study the question and bring in outside consultants.

But if it is to thrive, it needs to find its style. And style doesn’t cost money. Just as money doesn’t buy taste.

CBC - A Tale of Two Expense Scandals

CBC on the Senate scandal

Headline - Senate expense scandal: The Harper brand of politics

It’s the fault of the trio of senators he appointed who misused taxpayers’ money by claiming expenses they weren’t entitled to, he said, the same senators who must now be suspended without pay.

CBC on CBC Executive expense scandal

Headline - CBC defends itself against report on expenses

Canada's public broadcaster says it takes the management of taxpayers' money "very seriously" and a recent report of overspending by one of its executives is largely a distortion of the truth by some of the CBC's competitors.

CBC doesn't know what they're talking about

Paul MacLean says Hockey Night in Canada is out to lunch. At least when it comes to its criticism of Bobby Ryan.

The Senators' high-profile signing was the subject of some negative comments Saturday night about his skating when the Sens took on the Leafs in the nationally telecast game.

"I'm fine with his skating," said MacLean. "I don't think the picture of him has a dimension of speed, no, that's not his dimension. But he skates more than fine to play in the NHL."

MacLean scoffed at the idea Ryan is out of shape.

"Whoever CBC is, or whoever they are, don't know what they're talking about. His conditioning level is fine."

CBC rushing to where others fear to tread

The CBC refused Wednesday to say how big a slice of its $1.2-billion taxpayer handout it's spending to broadcast the 2014 Winter and 2016 Summer Olympic Games.

The decision to award the Canadian rights to the CBC raises questions about how level the playing field is between the taxpayer-funded broadcaster and private broadcasters.

"It's not a level playing field because the CBC gets more than a billion of taxpayer dollars while everyone else has to make it on their own," Greg Thomas, director of the Canadian Taxpayer Federation, told QMI Agency.

"We're seeing the CBC rushing to where others fear to tread. The Olympics have been a super disappointment as far as the ad revenue broadcasters are able to charge. Other broadcasters have had to back down because it's such a money loser."

CBC’s Atonement Falls Short After Maligning the Israel Defense Forces

On the October 20 broadcast of the CBC Radio program “The Sunday Edition”, host Michael Enright interviewed Dana Golan, described by the CBC as “a veteran of the Israel Defense Forces” and “former executive director of the Israeli NGO, Breaking the Silence (BTS), which compiled the stories of disillusioned Israeli soldiers in a new book called Our Harsh Logic.” The close to 25-minute radio segment not only indicted the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) for almost everything under the sun, it contained numerous errors, it lacked necessary context, and it unfairly maligned the IDF.

At no time in the interview did the CBC include a live or pre-recorded statement/response from Israeli officials to rebut BTS’ criticisms. The IDF were presumed guilty in the court of public opinion and the CBC was its judge, jury and executioner.

The resultant effect of the CBC’s errors and unfairness in the production of this interview, along with its failure to adequately atone for its journalistic lapses has led to the demonization of Israel’s armed forces. For which, no remedy is sufficient.

Misconception was manufactured by the CBC

It’s been a battle between two giant Canadian institutional forces. In one corner the CBC and the labour left. In the opposing corner, RBC and the Canadian banking industry.

This a story bubble blown up by the CBC out of the mistaken impressions of one worker about RBC’s outsourcing program. That employee’s misconception was manufactured by the CBC into a temporary foreign workers scandal.

Their story–impossible to follow logically– was bolstered by a hyperventilating lawyer.

CBC eventually lost the lawsuit and spent close to $900,000 on lawyers from an outside firm

In addition to having 22 lawyers on staff, CBC also has three paralegals. Rather than using lawyers already on the payroll, CBC dinged taxpayers more by securing the services of Guy Pratte, one of the top lawyers in Canada.

Despite having 22 lawyers on staff, CBC spent close to $900,000 on top-flight lawyers from an outside firm to fight a lawsuit that could have been settled with an apology.

CBC eventually lost the lawsuit and paid the filmmakers $200,000 in damages, which drove the total cost well over $1 million.

Selling CBC would be a bold step but the right one

In 1988, Prime Minister Brian Mulroney did what many considered impossible and privatized Air Canada over the objections of those who thought the government needed to own an airline.

As a frequent flyer of many airlines, I can tell you that Air Canada is a much better airline today.

The same can be said of Petro-Canada, which was sold beginning in 1990.  The organization learned to operate more efficiently and satisfy customers.

That was a privatization that was started by Mulroney but finally completed by the Liberal government of Paul Martin in 2004.

If Liberals and old Red Tories like Brian Mulroney can privatize government businesses, why can’t Stephen Harper?

There really is no reason for the government to own a broadcaster in the 500-channel universe.

There are plenty of Canadian broadcasters telling Canadian stories. In fact, with the digital revolution, Canadians have become major content creators.

An analysis done by Google last year showed that more Canadian content has been uploaded to YouTube since it was launched in 2005 than has been created by CBC and CTV since the 1950s.

The government doesn’t need to own a broadcaster to make sure Canadian stories are told. Canadians will do that on their own.

For those still worried about not having Canadian sitcoms and dramas on TV, the government could take just a portion of CBC’s annual $1.1-billion annual subsidy and put it into a production fund that would go to producers.

That content would then be purchased by the private networks, CBC included.
