Oops.Did that break your narrative?

Even if everything they reported was 100% factual, which it isn’t, the reality is their market share is so small that their existence can’t be fiscally justified. The CBC is nothing more than a government make work project...

The C.B.C. needs more Nick Adonidas and less Justin Trudeau's socks.

Unfortunately, they seem unwilling to provide quality programming that Canadians can identify with, and instead focus on a millionaire's socks.

Joe Blow farmer and Joe Blow policeman and Joe Blow truck driver don't give a flying :cuss: about Justin's socks.

That's why their market share is 3% and they need billions of our dollars to pay the light bill.

The C.B.C. was good years ago, now it's putrid.

I love listening to the podcasts on the CBC app, and watching the TV shows on CBC Gem. They offer a lot of different TV show options (We have really been enjoying Kim's Convenience lately), as well as a large selection of different documentaries, and even some main stream movies. ETA: My mom and step dad who are "Joe-blow" conservative farmers also like to consume CBC content, and they hate Trudeau. They are able to check their own biases on who they vote for, and still enjoy what is available.

Haven't once been exposed to any content about JT's socks. Everyone seem's really obsessed with socks for some reason. Maybe people should ask for a fun pair for Christmas, that might help :biggrin:

Remember the good old days when we could laugh together at antics of politicians portrayed in Double Exposure and Airfarce?

Those would be banned today under the politically correct CBC radio as it is today.

How I miss those laughs of yesterday.

How I loathe the pap spoonfed to us today

Defund now!

Why is this even a question. Our Canadian fianincal's are a complete mess. We are in serious debt our children and economies can never repay. Some things have to go. CBC, get rid of it.

Okay, we're in agreement. We don't need a government protected television station to preserve Canadian identity.
The difference is that you think that's true because you don't like what they say.

They can say whatever they want, and choose to coddle up to the Left all they want, and reap the non-financial rewards of that decision, just don't expect people who think the Left are awful to subsidize this nonsense.

I used to listen to "The Current", but now its become so Covid driven. Covid could...Science is evolving...... and then the Republican Party bashing.......sick of the bias and unbalanced opinions e.g. BLM.......yes it is terrible people are being shot, but that's where it starts and stops!
What were the circumstances leading up to the shooting?
Guarantee the CBC will not discuss the latest LA Sheriff's ambush shootings. The history of ambush shootings etc.

Well they wouldn't want to anger their woke listeners by offering two sides to the story, now would they? Of course not. You pretty much nailed it, way too much representation of only one side of a news story, with no discussion of the other, just black and white news reporting, "those guys are bad" etc. It's really sad to see.

My big aha moment with CBC was one time I was forced to listen to CBC radio when nothing else was coming in on a road trip and there were some women on from National Action Committee on the Status of Women, who of course were hard-core feminists, but hard-core far-left feminists, so it was an entire hour of complaining and victim-hood nonsense, all fed by the interviewer who did nothing to challenge any of the insane nonsense that they were spouting. The last straw for me was when the interviewer asked about how many conservative women supported their group and the head of the group said "You can't be a conservative and be a feminist". What an outrageously stupid thing to say, but the interviewer just laughed and agreed. Why can't you be a conservative and a feminist? Because you don't want to be a victim? It was so gross, and so awful. I just wanted to cut all funding to the CBC right there. It was just morally wrong to fund a "news" organization that would be that blatantly biased and committed to sending out disinformation like that on the airwaves.

I haven't listened to CBC radio for a few weeks. So as a test, this morning at 7:20am I selected CBC just to see what's happening. Apparently some so-called "scientist" in LA was being interviewed about the fires and how it is COMPLETELY caused by climate change and people driving vehicles. No mention of the fires being man-made, winds, precipitation, fuel-load, or anything else that could contribute. As OKkayak said, they only show one side of any story and that side is ALWAYS the left-most possible view from the left-most guests. In California, human mismanagement and green obstinacy are more likely than climate change.

Aside from falling temperatures in California since 2016, we have a report of the highest temperature recorded... although from a specific station built inside a sun-trap.

https://notalotofpeopleknowthat.wordpress.com/2020/09/09/record-heat-claims-in-california-last-month-are-fake/

What are the odds that any given 10 minute slot in a two week period I'd dial in and get glaring propaganda? I've changed my mind from a 50% defunding, defund them 75%.
