Charlie Hebdo and cartoons of Mohammad showcase the CBC's double standards

Brian LilleyArchive

The state broadcaster won't show the cartoons of the Islamic Prophet Mohammad that cartoonists died for. Why?

You won't believe the disgusting comments made by the CBC as to why Piss Christ is fair game, but pictures of Mohammad are off limits.

They had no problem showing Charlie Hebdo cartoons of Jews and Christians.

The state broadcaster keeps insisting that they don't have double standards. But it's clear as day. They do.

CBC has standards????
Which one was at play when they buried the climate gate e-mail scandal?
Which standard drives their openly lopsided political commentary?
And which standard is at play in their perfection of “innuendo” scandal mongering?

Peter Netterville….I know…..when Mencius asked Zhuang Zhou what “respect” was the sage replied “it is when you know that I know that you know that I know”……:-)

Glen Craig – ".and bill “the friends of the CBC” accordingly. "

I doubt you would see anyone move so fast to unfriend the CBC as those “friends of the CBC” when the first bill came in from the government. They are only friends when someone else pays the bill.

It is time to breakup CBC. It cant be sold = no would buy it except perhaps Rupert Murdock – maybe. Better to break-down and attempt to privatize various components. But for God sake do SOMETHING. We can’t have it spewing Liberal/NDP political propaganda for another 10 years.
In UK Cameron has finally woken up to this and after his win – despite BBC best efforts to stop – he is taking action.

yep, what you say is true, sir.
Is there a publisher in Canada who ISN’T afraid of displeasing anyone who might be Muslim?
By now Brian you must know that the CBC is NEVER wrong about anything. Never. That’s a fact ( ok there was that Ghomeshi thing but NOTHING ELSE. There’s no proof of any further wrong decisions. The CBC’s record as you know is spotless, as spotless as Jian Ghomeshi’s employment file – and that’s even after a “deep” dive of both.
The CBC is actually very fertile ground for corruption, and moral hypocrisy. Like all government run operations. It’s also too big to bring down – there are too many vested interests at play to ever get rid of it entirely. You can get individuals booted out, but they’re just replaced with the next diva, whether in management or on the screen.

Similarly, when Power and Politics discussed the March For Life in 2013, which is being held this week – Thursday May 14 in Ottawa, Ian Capstick went on an emotional/hate attack about the Catholic Church and his interpretation of its teachings on homosexuality. No one stopped him from his hate speech despite the evident uncomfortable Evan Solomon. CBC would not allow anyone to make any comments even remotely derogatory about LGBTs. Following that little incident, I email P&P annually about the March For Life to remind them to demonstrate respect for the babies killed and the women who regret their abortions.

Brian…I hope you’ll be there as you have been in the past? Will watch for you on The Rebel and hopefully you’ll be on EWTN’s live coverage from 11:30 am to 4pm from Ottawa’s Capital Hill.

CBC they are cowards bending the backs and walking on there knees because they are chiting in there pants with fears. They are over paid, self governed, full of them selves bunch of idiots that we are all bored of hearing about. I have flushed them 2 years ago making sure they have no way inside my home to spread their shit around. They are the shame of free speech, free press and dignity.

I have a suggestion regarding the funding of the CBC. Calculate a tax payer per capital share and make that contribution voluntary and optional on your tax return as a tick box to mark with an X…as support drops and at some point bottoms out …recalculate the remaining per capita share based on the funding the CBC would like to receive….and bill “the friends of the CBC” accordingly.

At one point in time the CBC had a captive audience…they lost a major portion of that audience some time ago…now all they have is captive subscribers.

Sell the CBC.

I’ve heard people compare radical Islam to the teachings of the Catholic Church saying it is too extreme. Obviously not comparable,since they aren’t afraid to insult Christians.

CBC stopped being relevant about the time Trudeau Sr came to power. The only thing it’s been good for since has been HNIC, the RCAFarce, THH22Min, and Rick Mercer. The 5th Estate was not bad. But even W5 has downgraded to entrapment journalism (they only discuss the “horror stories”, but never the other point of view). [Sorry, W5 is CTV, is it not? My bad…] Why do we still require “Canadian Content”?

CBC like the rest of the socialist “consortium” media believes in censoring news, not providing a factual documentary. Trying to shape Canadian Society? Not! Trying to brainwash is more like it. Evidence proves their “equal” treatment of all religions is a lie. They like our leftard politicos are infatuated with Islamists, hoping for their honored place in the new order. Boy, will they be surprised when their heroes of IsLam turn on them as dirty infidels, just like the rest of us. The CBC needs to be publicly defunded now! Their fans can pay for any further damage this organization wishes to inflict on Canada!

Some clown commenting elsewhere on this site claims the CBC actually produces news plus is balanced and honest. Mansbridge and his gang of reprobates should be deposed to the dustbin of history.
