In addition to distorting the ad market because their subsidy allows them to undercut, CBC also makes it harder for private media outlets to turn readers or viewers into subscribers. As media outlets around the world move to a paywall system, CBC continues to use their subsidy to give everything away for free, further distorting the market.

Devotees of the state broadcaster won’t listen to such business-minded criticisms, nor will they allow it to be stated that even with their fat subsidy CBC doesn’t fulfill their mandate. To them, the only answer is the same one the government has arrived at — more funding from taxpayers.

Trudeau offers more funding and secures votes from CBC devotees and continued positive coverage from the most Liberal friendly outlet in the country.

Canadians need a serious rethink of CBC, a true debate on what for it should take, how it should be funded or if it should even exist. Under this government, none of that will take place, you’ll simply pay more for programs you don’t watch because it serves Trudeau’s political purposes.
Exactly. Undercut the competition (and hopefully starve them out of existence] simply because CBC is on life support from JT and the Niberals, all paid for by us, the taxpayer who wants little to do with this fossil.

How can anyone in their right mind NOT see that CBC is nothing more than a corrupt government’s mouthpiece.

CBC to hire 24/7 trauma support for its reporters (on the taxpayers dollars)
This isn't surprising given the many horrible threats and attacks that CBC journalists have had to endure from the far right fringe.
But we've been told on here that CBC is right wing.
So it must be the far left fringe. A minority? [icon_lol2.gif]

Well....we did see a Israeli sniper take out a journalist recently as well as all those journalists that were killed in Ukraine.
increasingly vocalized incidents of reported abuse and harassment, often on Twitter,
All that CBC reporters need is a safe room.

Or is that fake news to you guys? I know a lot of evangelical righties are blindly supportive of Israel on account of the book of Revelation and Israel’s role in the end times, so they can’t abide anything that casts a shadow on anything Israeli.

No what was mentioned was that whoever is in power seems to be favoured by CBC as the right wingers were when the Conservatives were last in power waaaaaaay back when. It just seems that the CBC is left leaning now because the Liberals have defeated the CPC to take power 3 times now and the way it's looking for the fourth time.......which of course just means that JT and the Libs will continue to receive favourable coverage until the inept Cons somehow bungle into d̶e̶c̶e̶i̶v̶i̶n̶g̶ winning an election.

Of course it is. It's totally biased and not actually based in any truth whatsoever.
I know a lot of evangelical righties are blindly supportive of Israel
And I know a lot of far Lefties who hate Israel, because they also hate Jews.

Now - back to topic.
