The last few hundred thousand viewers still watching CBC’s The National (it gets crushed by CTV’s National News which easily gets triple the audience), in its new unpopular and painfully slow format (four hosts?!), as their primary source of news wouldn’t know anything about Liberal MP Geng Tan acting as an intermediary on a government trip to China for a Canadian-Chinese businessman now accused of fraud (you also won’t find anything on the Geng Tan story on CBC’s website). Joshua Boyle being arrested on 15 charges a few weeks after being granted a private meeting with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in the PM’s office barely registered in its programming.
Fans of “Fixer Upper” no doubt have heard that stars Chip and Joanna Gaines have announced they’re having a fifth child. That’s good news, right?
In an opinion piece for Canada’s CBC News, Kristen Pyszczyk was surprised by (but not opposed to) some of the online backlash, “because it’s a sentiment so seldom heard in a society that generally celebrates procreation with almost militant cheerfulness.”
We can already see where this is going.
The media in Canada has known about this for over a year. I was recently let go from a contract with the National Post after my reporting prompted Peter Mansbridge’s lawyers to file a cease and desist letter.
This story is not about Mansbridge having inter-office flings. Nobody has said those affairs were not consensual. What’s important is that it looks like those affairs are protected by non-disclosure agreements that include paying the women involved with Mansbridge hush money.
This is an open secret, but lawyers and crisis management firms are not letting the story break. Hopefully this video can quicken the process.
CBC under fire for documentary that says first humans to colonize New World sailed from Europe
CBC’s science show The Nature of Things is set to air a documentary that purports to prove the first humans in the New World came across the ocean from Europe and not, as most scientists think, via a land bridge from Asia.
A geneticist of ancient humans calls it “extremely irresponsible” to promote this theory, not just because it is widely rejected and unsupported by evidence, but also because it is a favourite piece of propaganda among white supremacists, who use it to argue Europeans colonized North America before Native Americans, and therefore have the original claim to the land.

There is little doubt I would be accused of all sorts of nasty things, including a racist, if I were to go on national public television and call Vicky Mochama “a young crying black girl.”
So, I won’t, although she is young, and she is black, and none of this should matter. Except it does in this case.
Who is Vicky Mochama, you ask?
She will likely be troubled you don’t know.
Last week, CBC was scheduled to air the controversial BBC documentary Transgender Kids: Who Knows Best? but scrapped the plan the day of, citing audience feedback and its own “further review of the doc.” Activists had argued that the film was “harmful” and poised to “feed transphobia.”
In actuality, the documentary offers a rare and factual perspective on the politicization of gender therapy by featuring interviews with Dr. Kenneth Zucker, a psychologist and international research expert on gender dysphoria in children.
Only hours before it was set to air, the CBC cancelled the planned broadcast of a BBC documentary after transgender activists accused the film of being “transphobic” and “harmful.”
Transgender Kids: Who Knows Best? has faced condemnation for including in its coverage the argument that some children diagnosed as transgender may simply be suffering from treatable mental-health issues.

In a CBC TV report broadcast on November 2marking the 100th anniversary of the Balfour Declaration (the historic document written by Lord Arthur Balfour which expressed Britain’s support for a Jewish national homeland in historic Palestine) CBC Mideast journalist Derek Stoffel’s report implicitly cast doubt on Israel’s right to exist by supposedly referencing Palestinian claims stating that the Balfour Declaration “led to the military occupation of the Palestinian people by the Israelis.”
The time has come to call the duck a duck. It’s time to agree with a long list of Israeli political leaders, academics and public figures on both the political left and right, including three former prime ministers, a winner of the Israel prize, two former heads of the Israeli internal security service Shin Bet, and one of the country’s principal newspapers, all of whom have warned that the Jewish state is becoming, or already is, an apartheid state.
I would choose the latter characterization.
Our national broadcaster… They would not publish this if Justin did not approve.
Here’s the first installment of “What Was Wrong With CBC’s The National Last Night”. In these blurbs I will summarize the CBC’s flagship news program from the previous night, highlighting what was glossed over or completely ignored by the public broadcaster in the last day’s news cycle.
Canadians don’t choose to give our money to CBC. It gets taken through our tax dollars whether we like it or not. That makes CBC a government service, and government services are supposed to be applied in a neutral, non-partisan way.
Unfortunately, we all know that CBC is often used by the far-left to push their politically correct agenda, and attempt to shape the opinions of Canadians to a specific set of elitist and globalist ideas, instead of reflect the true views of the Canadian people.
After 50 years of silence, Che Guevara’s brother reveals the man behind the myth
What the fuck is wrong with these ignorant pampered asses at the CBC, I mean besides being ignorant pampered asses.
Che was a psychopath, he enjoyed murder, and yet they indulge the vile fantasy propagated by Che’s brother that the beloved revolutionary had no control over the sentences of those he executed.
The CBC’s Neil Macdonald is an ignorant bigot
“…Everyone else—be it the drag queens and nudists waving their genitals to the crowd at the Pride Parade, or the Black Lives Matter rioters shutting them down, or abortion activists screaming at families attending the March for Life—they have the right to express their views in public and to advocate for those views in the political sphere. But that’s because they’re not Christian. Macdonald thinks Christians should not have such rights. They can only speak to each other, in their churches.
And why? Because Macdonald doesn’t happen to believe what Christians believe, and because in spite of his alleged open-mindedness, he doesn’t have the faintest clue what Christians believe on any topic.”
“Their journeys spanned 400 days, involved crossing 15 borders on three continents and cost them nearly $40,000.
But earlier this month, as Canadians celebrated the 150th anniversary of Confederation, the two Somali asylum seekers who embarked on those risky journeys reached their final goal.”
How many Canadian citizens have 40 grand just laying around?
