#JianGhomeshi The CBC’s Frankenstein

The CBC were determined to stick with Ghomeshi so long as he was beating up women “just a little”, then cashiered him when they saw the pics.

It’s sickening to note the CBC was ready to forgive Ghomeshi if only he would just act contrite and maybe pretend to get help. However Ghomeshi, unlike the CBC, has principles and being a good sociopath he refused to admit that he may have done anything wrong.

Ghomeshi is the CBC’s creation, a Frankenstein monster of their own making.  The CBC is a foreign culture and any talk that suggests they are representative of Canadian values is bunk.

 

New – As I said above, the CBC were happy to have Ghomeshi stay on so long as there was no physical evidence – CBC: Evidence of ‘physical injury to a woman’ spurred Ghomeshi firing

“After viewing this graphic evidence, we determined that Jian’s conduct was a fundamental breach of CBC’s standard of acceptable conduct for any employee. Treating all people with respect, dignity and fairness is fundamental to our relationship with the Canadian public and contributes to a safe and healthy work environment that promotes engagement, openness and transparency,” Ms. Conway explained.

“Jian’s conduct in causing physical injury to a woman was inconsistent with the character of the public broadcaster, was fundamentally unacceptable for any employee, was likely to bring the reputation of his fellow employees and CBC into disrepute and could not be defended by CBC. As such, we took immediate steps to remove Jian from the workplace and terminated his employment on October 26.”

 

Wait there’s moreJian Ghomeshi showed CBC a video of bondage, beating: sources

Videos of bondage and beating during sexual activities involving Jian Ghomeshi were presented by the former CBC host to his bosses late last week, sources say.

“CBC viewed scenarios where Jian Ghomeshi asks, for example, a woman to do something and she does it,” a source close to the matter told the Star. The source said Ghomeshi was trying to show “how bruising could happen and it could still be consensual.”

According to sources, Ghomeshi was afraid that the story of his alleged activities was about to break and he was trying to convince the CBC that everything he had done in his sex life was consensual.

 

This is sick making, just think we paid big time to craft Ghomeshi’s defense – from the Star article above, it appears that the CBC hired Navigator jointly with Ghomeshi to craft a response to any leaks.

The crisis firm Navigator was hired, working for both CBC and Ghomeshi. From the start, sources say, Ghomeshi said that the Twitter posting and other allegations he was aware of were the work of a jilted ex-girlfriend.

Ghomeshi dumped by his agency

“The Agency, a live booking firm, is the latest organization to distance itself from disgraced radio host Jian Ghomeshi.

In a brief statement on Friday, the Toronto-based company, which describes itself as “the world’s leading live music booking agency,” announced that “they are no longer the agent of representation” for Ghomeshi.”

More Ghomeshi creepiness… worth noting is how Ghomeshi’s behavior was an open secret at CBC

“So, did Jian Ghomeshi try to sleep with you?”

This was the first question the then-Director of Current Affairs for CBC Radio in my hometown asked me the first day I got back from a 6-week unpaid internship at Q in Toronto. Her question, asked in front of a small group of co-workers in an open newsroom, elicited gales of laughter from all assembled. Because, you know, back then, it was funny what a reputation Jian (or JG, as he was known in Q circles) had for being a total sleazebag.”

Oh! Oh! Jian Ghomeshi may have lost the last chip he had to play in his defence, lawyer says

“By getting out last Sunday ahead of the news breaking about his alleged violence and harassment against women, Ghomeshi had the opportunity to shape the narrative, all in the legally privileged, libel-proof form of a statement of claim that viciously attacked the CBC.

It was a legally ill-founded claim (since a unionized employee like Ghomeshi has no standing to sue an employer). But it would also have had the impact of scaring off potential complainants who might be intimidated by Ghomeshi’s aggressive litigiousness, not to mention the prospect of being outed — truthfully or not — in his version of events as willing BDSM participants.

But the gamble didn’t pay off. More accusers defiantly stepped forward, his left-wing supporters like Judy Rebick and Elizabeth May scattered for cover, the social media dialogue turned against him, and now he finds himself abandoned even by his crisis-PR firm, Navigator — a sure sign that worse is coming.”

Below is the latest from the cesspit known as the CBC – Canadian Bitches Be Crazy

  • truepeers

    Someone needs to coordinate a march on and occupation of the CBC.

    • I luv it!

    • andycanuck

      And how much reporting on Mayor Rob Ford?

    • Hopefully Mr. Jonathan Kay of Walrus will lead that march. Right?

      • andycanuck

        But Justin will get the credit.

      • truepeers

        As long as he has a pitchfork and the desire to save Canadian womenhood from the ogres.

  • Exile1981

    They are circling the wagons and slandering the victims. Of course according to the religion of peace it’s the women’s fault they were assaulted.

    • This will get very interesting.

      • Exile1981

        Time for buttered popcorn, a large soft drink and an easy chair. This is better than watching any CBC programming.

        • Way better, except the part about the lawsuit (s) we’ll end up paying for.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            We won’t end up paying for Ghomeshi’s.
            And do you think that BBC creep finally gave some people licence to out their views in this country?
            I am the barber of Savile of the King of Spain.
            Once I was the King of Spain.
            Now I’m not a guy in Moxy Fruvous.
            I just beat up women while I’m eating steak on the government dime.

  • Ron MacDonald

    It’s time for a class action suit against the CBC on behalf of all the women abused.

    • The Goat

      What about the abused taxpayers?

  • Wait a second! Where is Arif Noorani from?

    • Italy?

      • Surele Surele

        Heh!

    • Pete_Brewster

      The Shankill Road, surely?

      • Humm. A certain Owais Ahmad Noorani ia secretary general of the Jamiat Ulema-i-Pakistan, a vehicle for the religious Barelvi Sunni strain of Islam. But hey, it’s a common Irish name, eh?

    • Mainlander

      Gerrard Street?

  • TSBeaver

    Boom! They’re toast. Brown wouldn’t be tweeting this if he didn’t have some evidence to back it up.

    • Yea, the CBC will be paying out a lot of money. People need to be fired.

      • TSBeaver

        That all depends on how many more women he worked with were harassed and assaulted by him in the workplace and whether or not they reported it to the CBC.

  • Pete_Brewster

    I’ll take what comfort I can from reports that the rank and file (male and female) hated Ghomeshi, and literally cried with relief on news of his unmasking and ouster.

    Just in time. The Liberal Party has always had a soft spot for CBC hacks in need of a sinecure. We may, in truth, have been spared Senator Jian Ghomeshi.

    • He does not seem well regarded;) But he was the CBC’s creation.

  • mauser 98

    rats ,,, sinking ship

    Feds will go turtle on this.. election looms and they do not want to offend
    Wynne loves Big Brother

    • Seems the CBC hired Navigator to help craft Ghomeshi’s defense strategy in the event any “untrue allegations” became public.

      • mauser 98

        the CBC obsessive compulsive shove multiculturalism down their throats religion bites back

  • andycanuck

    Brian Lilley made a FOI request about sexual harassment but was blown off by the Ceeb through massively-redacted documents. So this might go further up the ladder at MoFo Corporation. He covers it in tonight’s programme.

  • I love it when leftists are doing the fighting. With each other.

    “Do you know about Jian?”
    Here is another blog post that people in the Cdn. music and broadcasting world have known about Ghomeshi for years.

  • TSBeaver

    According to the star it looks like it all blew up when it did because Ghomeshi and the CBC thought that the story was about to drop when in fact it wasn’t. Even then if he hadn’t published his facebook rant he probably could have got away with it.

  • Pete_Brewster

    CTV has just reported that two of Ghomeshi’s (ahem) alleged victims have finally made a report to Toronto police, now that they know Toronto’s finest no longer have a choice but to take them seriously.

    • Clink9

      No way he gets a helicopter chase like Ford. It’s not in the narrative.

      • Pete_Brewster

        Have a heart. With Ford gone, all of Toronto’s other problems are solved. TO’s finest need SOMETHING to do, right?

    • Good news. Thanks.

  • Gaylord Ponce

    Ghomeshi vs the CBC. I hope they both lose.
    Wonder what Teddy Big Ears thinks of all this.

  • RevnantDream

    Jian Ghomeshi along with Heather Mallick. A match made in Hell.

  • tamale

    When oh when will we finally defund CBC? I pay A LOT of taxes & clearly my dime is not going towards edifying, uplifting, or constructive content. I’m tired of being abused like this by Jian & his creators, which is another form of “rough” invasion.
