CBC wastes THOUSANDS of your taxpayer dollars on ad praising Peter Mansbridge

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

So I saw this full-page newspaper ad, sent to me by a viewer.

It’s a huge ad that might have cost the CBC, I don't know, $25,000?

They're congratulating themselves because their anchor, Peter Mansbridge, has been on TV for 40 years.

No wonder he’s a millionaire celebrity, asked to officiate at Liberal Party weddings in Italy.

I think the only reason he won’t be appointed to the Senate by Justin Trudeau is that Mansbridge wouldn’t want the pay cut, or the cut in political influence.

Right now, the Media Party is being slaughtered in Canada.

Hundreds laid off at CTV.

Postmedia, which owns most daily newspapers in Canada, has said they’re going to cut $50 million next year. That’s probably 500 jobs, maybe shutting down whole newspapers.

But the CBC blows $25,000 puffing up the ego of their anchor.

I guess they're taking it from the $150 million "bonus" they got from Justin Trudeau after helping him win the election.

The CBC: Irrelevant, arrogant, biased. It’s time to pull the plug!

Peter Mansbridge is the best (And only) thing the CBC has got going for it. I’m sure the CBC wants to keep its primary anchor and News Journalist happy. If Mansbridge was to leave, then The National would definitely take a big dip in its ratings. Our agenda mongering CBC needs more cash to operate properly, but also needs a mass cleaning out of all its lefty special interest group operators who have wormed their way deep into the organization. I hope they don’t just become “Liberal TV.”

DARRYL TESKEY … I’m surprised I got under your skin with such a meaningless reply. Please don’t use my wit as an excuse to smack the old lady or kick the dog or cat again to ease your anger.

That’s got to be peanuts compared to what they spent on dozens of daily ads for at least a week on Fox News Network following our federal election. For what? Rubbing it in to any conservatives in the Fox market? Probably.

I only watch CTV or any other liberal TV when something seems to sound mature! It does not last long and then they start smoooooching on JT. I turn away quickly because I can not stomach that name!

Leftist idiots are usually full of themselves. Self congratulating themselves on their perceived superiority. I’m sure they don’t feel this way though as they usually feel that they are entitled to all they get from the taxpayer. From bribing this CBC propaganda wing for the election to his own nannies being paid by us the taxpayers neither CBC nor Justin will feel a pinch of guilt. This is another example of CBC building up an ego for another lefty idiot. I like Mansbridge as a news presenter but do not think he is entitled to any special treatment. Justin will probably reward him with an appointment to senator though. I think they are that corrupt.

These are dark times for Canada, almost as dark as the Trudeau era…oh…wait…another Trudeau is at the helm. Funny how that happened, and now we are right back to attacks on private individuals, companies, jobs, and our wallets. Next thing you know, he’ll start raising taxes and forcing interests rate to climb. Because, you know, it’s how you stimulate an economy, right? Well, actually, it’s how you artificially stimulant growth with money traders and the banks, but that’s it. OH, wait, hold on now. Isn’t Trudeau’s wealth wrapped up in investments that rely on higher interest in order to make more money?

They want us to feel sorry for all of those layoffs, well I for one don’t. This is the additional staff they hired to ensure that PM Harper was defeated. A bunch of traitors, one and all!

Isn’t that sweet: more taxpayer-funded ego-stroking for CBC’s Peter Mansbridge, more debt and deficit for us.

Nice try Michael Mann… But if the CBC is an untouchable, government-guaranteed and protected entity; which it evidently is as long as the Liberals stay in power, why spend even one penny on “advertising, marketing and promotion”?… Eh?…
commented 2015-12-02 23:38:55 -0500
You know for some reason I don’t feel sorry for this left wing media working for left wing CTV.
As for Mansbridge, you erred Ezra, when you said “cost the CBC”, I’m sure you meant to say “cost the taxpayer”. What a bloody farce.
commented 2015-12-02 23:36:26 -0500
You know, this whole thing may turn out to be kind of fun!… The MSM has been scrambling for several years to “get left” of the CBCCTV being very obvious in this game and The National Post in the year leading up to the last election… Now that layoffs are coming, and the CBC’s dimpled bum is being protected by the Liberal government, it is going to be amusing to watch “the Devil take the hindmost” game evolve in newsrooms as staffers who had sold their journalistic soul cry “Not Me”!?… Indeed:- “What goes around, comes around…”

CBC had several commercials on CNN for about a two week period after the election. It was Mansbridge promoting the CBC and it also showed the parliament buildings and of course our favourite person Justin True Doh. Is this part of the CBC mandate, to promote themselves and a political leader?
commented 2015-12-02 23:02:50 -0500
So? It’s called advertising, marketing and promotion.

Mr Mansbridge is a despicable person who likes to feed off the Liberal Trough. He dose not walk, he slithers and would be better employed as an insert, used to control female menstrual cycles.

Somehow I find it hard to have a pinch of sympathy

Mind you they can always go and clean toilets at the new welfare recipients camps – because the new welfare recipients will have to be taught how t use them.

The schitte will be spread all over the place

And yes, that is a true statement

I don’t think we could burn money faster than these elitist crooks can spend it! Mansbridge is just another narcissist, who thinks the world owes him for every breath that he takes.

$25,000 is chump change in comparison to the reception party that will follow…Ezra, will you be invited?

It costs a lot of money to promote your new Propaganda Minister before people will take him seriously .
