CBC just lost a defamation case and was ordered to pay $1.7 million.
They lied about a investment broker.
But they do not care, it is only taxpayers money being paid out.

They have Justin Trudeau Syndrome. They don't think about money.

Just a short time ago I put this comment on CBC.
Stay home. Boycott the Beijing Olympics out of respect for the Two Michaels.

And this comment can now be found......? Deactivated.

Looks like the country Justin admires is calling the shots at the Communist Broadcasting Corporation.

The CBC has dropped another 10% in viewership in the last few months. They have lost advertisement revenue and Justine is just a phone call away to offer monetary support in any way he can. CBC is a money pit.

WHY I QUIT CBC


https://tarahenley.substack.com/p/speak ... xNqa6_RkQA


To work at the CBC in the current climate is to embrace cognitive dissonance and to abandon journalistic integrity.

It is to sign on, enthusiastically, to a radical political agenda that originated on Ivy League campuses in the United States and spread through American social media platforms that monetize outrage and stoke societal divisions. It is to pretend that the “woke” worldview is near universal — even if it is far from popular with those you know, and speak to, and interview, and read.

To work at the CBC now is to accept the idea that race is the most significant thing about a person, and that some races are more relevant to the public conversation than others. It is, in my newsroom, to fill out racial profile forms for every guest you book; to actively book more people of some races and less of others.

To work at the CBC is to submit to job interviews that are not about qualifications or experience — but instead demand the parroting of orthodoxies, the demonstration of fealty to dogma.

And its an article that EVERY Canadian taxpayer should read, even those on here that come to the defense of CBC.

The author's first reference to how far CBC has sunk was this, and I didn't know whether to laugh or cry out of frustration.
People want to know why, for example, non-binary Filipinos concerned about a lack of LGBT terms in Tagalog is an editorial priority for the CBC...

This is right down there with seeing the BEING BLACK IN CANADA link on the side panel ever since George Floyd became CBCs hero.

Schitt's Creek is one of the best shows in the history of TV. It would be great to see the CBC come up with another gem like this.

Yes, more Schitt's Creek and less communism. Quite the recipe for success!
