CBC is “transparent,” protects us from “disinformation,” CEO tells Committee

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

I saw a weird story behind the paywall at Blacklock’s Reporter today. The story is about an appearance by CBC/Radio-Canada's CEO Catherine Tait yesterday at the Heritage Committee in the House of Commons.

Blacklock's story flagged some of the more outrageous and out-of-touch comments made by Catherine Tait, so I was inspired to go back and I listened to the whole committee hearing myself.

It was a trip down a rabbit hole to auditory hell, filled with pretention, elitism and smugness where Tait called the CBC a “beacon of truth” that offers “balance” in their journalism as a matter of policy.

We know better.

I got the evidence from a viewer named Rob in 2017 from a letter he received after he complained to the CBC Ombudsman about the extreme lack of balance he saw while watching CBC’s the National one night.

The National blamed the shrinking shoreline of Lennox Island, PEI exclusively on climate change. Rob thought there was more to it - like wind and other forms of erosion caused by ocean currents- and that the National’s coverage of Lennox Island lacked the obligatory “balance” that Catherine Tait testified is part of the CBC mandate.

The ombudsman wrote that “as I have written for the last several years, I do not forward complaints asking for a response to "one-sided" presentations about climate change as such. The overwhelming scientific consensus is that climate change is a reality.

The CBC’s “balance” shuts out one side of the argument. Some beacon of truth!

That Tait woman. Does she really believe the drivel that she vomits out of that lying yap of hers? The CBC gives balance, yeah if you consider something to be balanced if the weight is all on one side. CBC news reportage is nothing but a pack of lies. It should be called “The Pinnochio News.”

This is out and out crazy making by an insane leftist cult. These people will say and do anything to support the insanity of the leftist totalitarian state, this is complete psychopathic behaviour, these people are a dangerous cult, they will do anything to protect their sacred cows and the money they get for being good storm troopers for King Trudeau.

Take two polarized lenses, turn them at right angles to each other….and see what happens to transparency.

millions of dollars to lie for their task masters-trudys liberals. honest unbiased news is now a dinosaur, with so little out there trying their best to tell the truth like fox news and our rebel. the rest are disgusting commie, lying conservative hating scum, and lacking no common sense ever in their reporting of the news and never will again.

C.T. , liar liar hair on fire. They are all so far up Justin’s tush that they wouldn’t know the truth if it slapped them in the face. Their job is to hide the truth and if they can’t, to call it fake news. Canada’s cnn. Not worth what I scrape off my shoes after a day in Toronto. Most Canadians resent having to pay for your propaganda C.T.
Lies, subterfuge, cover ups and omissions. That is what the cbc brings us everyday in every way with our tax dollars.

It’s ironic that the “overwhelming scientific consensus”, is ever more “confident” the further their predictions diverge from reality…

Another alarming “overwhelming scientific consensus” that was pushed on us as school children.

Strangely the same “solutions” were proposed. Shutting down western industrial society and a global wealth redistribution…

Science has this to say about failed predictions. And that “consensus” is not a valid argument in science. Professor Richard Feynman, Nobel Laureate in Physics said,

“It does not matter who you are, or how smart you are, or what title you have, or how many of you there are, and certainly not how many papers your side has published, if your prediction is wrong then your hypothesis is wrong. Period.”

Climate predictions are consistently wrong, so the hypothesis is wrong and the computer models built on it are wrong and produce meaningless results.

The CBC like the rest of the corrupt left wing media have been in the business of Marxist propaganda and cover up for years.

CBC has been since its inception and is to this day the creator of political propaganda and fake news in Canada ever since Pierre put his friend (Pierre Juneau) into the top position. Thank goodness there are still bastions of truth to counter their propaganda, until Justin has his way that is.

Surprise of surprises NP developed some backbone and posted some actual facts but added spin to soften the blow. Their line “The extreme version of conservatism isn’t fascism, as the left wants us to think. It’s libertarianism.” is still nothing short of longstanding calculated spin, it is far left.

CBC,transparency,and truth should never be used in the same sentence,far from it CBC you lying,filthy propaganda machine. Lugenpresse !!!!!

If the CBC, Trudeau and his crew were transparent.. They all would be wearing burkas jet setting around the world. Condemning all the western world society’s and demanding our destruction.. imo of course…. oh.. wait a minute…

Another heapin’ helpin’ of Leftist horse puckey. Our leftist betters have decided all matters of all consequence for us. They are the arbiters of truth and you, gentle viewer, are merely consumers. Your lousy public education did not prepare you to race through all the intricacies of the arguments. But fear not! They have done it for you and will tell you what to think. Actually think is too strong a word, The will tell you which opinions you are allowed to hold without facing court or and HRC hearing.

Consider yourselves blessed that the Almighty has vouchsafed all knowledge of the Tree of Good and Evil to the Left.

Ya gotta wonder why this irrational lefty elitist is on audio spewing these pure lies and BS…like she really believes this nonsense. Whoa!
Is she nuts, or is that the best she can do to ‘promote’ Jihadi-Justin-Groper and his Clown Show antics?
I guess they’re really panicky now – so close to October – and wondering what they’ll do now, since Obama/Hillary didn’t get into the White House, to pave the way for them and their globalist comrades.
They were all so certain…LOL!

Lennox Island is a consolidated deposit of raw sewage flushed down the Saint Lawrence…whatever washes away will get topped up soon enough.
