“So gross, and you paid for it” — CBC’s Peter Mansbridge says goodbye to himself

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Peter Mansbridge has made tens of millions of dollars from the CBC. (By which I mean, from you, the taxpayer, although we aren’t permitted to know exactly how much.)

His time on the air is now coming mercifully to an end, though we’ll be paying his pension for a while. But tonight I’ll show you part of his goodbye-to-himself show.

The assembled panelists ran the gamut of opinions from A to B. It was like watching Mansbridge talk to himself in four different voices.

The “conservative” columnist, Andrew Coyne, at least admits bias, but says the answer is for the public to challenge journalists. That’s pretty funny, since the comments on this very CBC video are disabled!

But my favourite has to be Althia Raj. She says that The Rebel is the only biased outlet, and that anyway, “most of us here would not consider that a journalistic organization.”

So what’s Peter Mansbridge like, in the bias department?

We don’t quite know, because he keeps a lot of secrets. Like his secret trip to Italy to preside over the wedding of Kate Purchase, who is now Justin Trudeau’s communications director.

At the CBC, it’s clearly a corporate decision to be politically biased.

Do you remember the disgraceful CBC fake news report about what they called “the Trump effect”? They hired and filmed actors selling racist t-shirts on Canadian streets, and somehow this was evidence that Trump had created racism.

That’s just one example of many I’ll show you tonight.

I don’t know who should be more embarrassed:

Trudeau, the CBC, or Canadian taxpayers…

TONIGHT’S GUESTS: Guidy Mamann, Toronto immigration lawyer, talks about the “refugee” to Canada from Trump’s America who is now in “legal limbo;” and Anthony Furey, National Columnist for the Sun Newspaper Chain, who says Canada needs coherent policy to tackle Islamist agenda.

Jimmy Reece commented…

“Every single news source on the planet has a bias. You are asking for something that doesn’t exist in reality. CBC caters to MOST Canadians – they don’t want Fox News here.”

Since the days of Trudeau (Pierre Trudeau, not his idiot son) the CBC has been hijacked and beamed into the homes of young innocent and unsuspecting Canadians in every tiny corner of the country.

From birth they are brainwashed by CBC airwaves – from the nipple straight to the cozy sanitized CBC and ever-present Peter Mansbridge (mercifully coming to an end).

Is it any mystery why this country is walking off a cliff ??

Jimmy isn’t a troll for cbc, just to let you know.

I know the model Jimmy I just am doubtful of your claim to your attitude considering the whining you do about the rebel and you don’t even pay a dime.
commented 2017-06-27 17:47:11 -0400
Edward Jobin,

CBC is Canada’s official broadcaster. It’s the same thing with the BBC. You don’t seem to understand that model. If Canada was a conservative country – I would accept it like the many others things that my taxes go to that I may not support. I wouldn’t be whining about it endlessly like people do here.
commented 2017-06-27 17:25:21 -0400
Jimmy Reece; The difference between you and me. If our country was mostly conservative I would not expect you to pay for it any more than I would expect you to pay for a movie or band you didn’t want to watch. If your money was going to the rebel without your consent I am seriously doubtful you would be at peace with it but it’s easy to be cavalier when it’s not your money being forced to state sponsored propaganda.

Peter Netterville,

I don’t expect you to accept anything. You lack the intelligence and have your head too far up your ass to be able to recognize facts and the truth. I know that going in when I post here.

Alberta CBC radio t.v & anything CBC is pathetic & WE RESENT OUR TAXES PAYING FOR THEIR BULLSHIT!

@ Andy, “Peter.. From the frenetic postings by Jimmy on this subject I am thinking he is racing to fill some monthly quota?… Just a thought…”

Yes, I think you are right.

One thing is for sure, Jimmy seems to think we should all just accept his bullshit. He really is a dipshit troll. Not too bright. But he does provide comic relief, a lot like a court jester.

Andy Neimers,

No problem.

Another 50 bucks for me.

Thanks Jimmy for that refreshing bit of honesty…

Andy Neimers,

Yes, The CBC is paying me to be here and I get paid per post.

Peter Netterville,


The Rebel doesn’t represent the cold hard facts. They provide a conservative opinion/spin right from the get go and only cover things where they can spew their conservative view. Do you actually think the MSM never gets it right per the facts?

At least the CBC has conservatives on staff and on air. The Rebel doesn’t. Well maybe not your brand of crazy conservative, but conservative nonetheless.

If you think The Rebel is presenting cold hard facts in their 6 minute videos, you clearly are hypocritical and lack objectivity. You are brainwashed.
commented 2017-06-27 13:45:46 -0400
Jimmy said, “logic dictates”

Logic? You? Now there is an oxymoron.

The difference is that:
- The Rebel presents all the cold hard facts as they know them at the time and then interpret those facts from the conservative perspective. The Rebel supporters expect a conservative interpretation of events.

- The CBC employs at least a couple of tactics;
a) they leave out inconvenient facts (inconvenient for them)
b) they interpret the remaining facts with their left wing bias without informing the listener/reader that indeed they are slanting it to the left. This is because they seem to think their outlook on the world is what all Canadians believe. Arrogance and ignorance.

The flaw in your “logical dictates” is that you assume The Rebel manipulates the facts as does the CBC. They do not.

Daryl Herman…..your chances of ever meeting up with Jimmy-the mouth piece-Reece, are slim to none. You have to understand that wee jimmy as a leftist regressive fucktard coward who hides behind a fake name, and would never have the intestinal fortitude to ever have a face to face meeting.
Wee minded jimmy is a internet troll of the first degree, here is an explanation of the mental state of this coward:

Ron Shea said, “The CBC I grew up watching in the early 70’s was great.”

I agree … though for me it was the late 70’s and early 80’s. It certainly has gone way down hill since mid 80’s.
commented 2017-06-27 12:49:23 -0400
Peter Netterville,

Since you acknowledge that The Rebel is indeed biased – who says that The Rebel is telling the truth?

If one is biased – left or right, logic dictates that both CBC and The Rebel would be spewing bullshit from time to time. I will concede that about the CBC. Can you concede that about The Rebel?
commented 2017-06-27 12:45:17 -0400
Edward Jobin,

I have answered your question before. If the vast majority of Canadians were conservative – then I would understand CBC reflecting that, but the opposite is true.

I am already paying for the things regarding my taxes that I may not agree with, so I wouldn’t be crying about the CBC like you are. That’s life.
commented 2017-06-27 11:55:20 -0400
The CBC I grew up watching in the early 70’s was great. It had philosophy shows like, “Man Alive” which made people think.. Real science shows, “The Nature of Things” when David Suzuki was into presenting factual science and not scientism as he does today. Great kids shows where kids actually learned, “What’s New?” and “Sesame Street” (when Jim Henson had the helm) and “The Friendly Giant”. On Sunday mornings, they even played Christian church services. And “The National” presented news objectively and not subjectively. Those days are gone.
The CBC needs to be shut down or privatized. It has become a nauseating cesspool of pro-Liberal leftism, where fringe beliefs are presented as mainstream, where anyone who does not accept their social engineering agenda is demonized by their paid left wing trolls who inhabit the forums and the forums are highly moderated to exclude any and all dissenting views. If you are pro abortion, pro gay, and pro Islam, and pro Liberal, the CBC mods will love you. I know, as being a former member for over a decade.
How anyone can work at that corporation and go to sleep at night with a clear conscience after presenting their constant barrage of lies is beyond me. They are all probably afraid of losing their jobs. I would have at least hoped Susan Ormiston would have exposed the CBC as she always seemed to want to expose truth. Unfortunately, even she sold out.

The Rebel is where it is at. It continues to grow despite mounting criticism and it presents its journalism objectively. Global, City, CTV, Toronto Star, Globe and Mail, Huff Post and National Post (other than Rex Murphy and Conrad Black) are just trash leftist rags whose news appeals to all those who hate Canada and the Canadian values our great country were founded on.

Hopefully “The Rebel” will expand in the future to become what the CBC should have always been, a cutting-edge news organization, unless of course Justin Trudeau censors and shuts them down for telling the truth.

Keep up the good work Ezra. You are fantastic.

Peter who?
commented 2017-06-27 09:50:37 -0400
Peter Netterville: You would think with all the tax money we have to give we should be able to criticize them at the very least, but that would be to democratic. And you are right about the rebel. It is a private business which is actually pretty good about allowing free speech as long as you aren’t continually harassing someone or using excessive language.
commented 2017-06-27 09:44:38 -0400
The CBC and the liberal government have a mutually shared parasitical relationship. Neither one know the value of hard work for a living as they have become reliant on sucking off the public funds and abusing their trust.
commented 2017-06-27 09:37:50 -0400
Jimmy Reece claim, “All news outlets are biased.”

True, but the CBC is paid from the taxes of all Canadians, so they have a special mandate to represent all political views; left and right.

Jimmy Reece said, "Please show me the two sides of the story on any Rebel article? Or anything balanced here? "

The Rebel is privately funded and they clearly state that their news is from a conservative perspective. They are not secretive about it neither do they pretend to non-biased.

The CBC, however, pretends to be non-biased but in fact are extremely biased and blatantly anti-Conservative. They are liars and deceivers.

Hyacinth: Jimmy is all for taking the tax payers money and giving it to the CBC but in past conversations (it seems like we have had this conversation a couple times now) but when I ask how would he feel if the government took our taxes and gave it to the rebel he usually falls silent because he is OK with it as long as it works to his perceived advantage. Typical liberal b.s.

Yes Ezra, we will be paying Mansbridge’s pension for a long time. Next stop for Mansbridge….the Senate.

“Mansbridge was the Ted Baxter of the CBC ..”

At least Ted Baxter was funny… and had more than 10 hairs.
Mansbridge just sucked the oxygen out of the room. He was so boring the flies fell asleep in mid-air.

I wouldn’t mind the leftie CBC so much if they took care of their own finances – after all we have freedom of speech in this country (I think) – but that we citizens are obligated to fund CBC via our taxes for decades is outrageous.

Justin the Benevolent gave CBC a nice pile of hush money in 2016, a staggering $150,000,000 of your tax dollars. Since then Mansbridge et al have been gushing about Trudeau and bashing Trump non-stop.

In other words, your tax dollars are used to prop up Chairman Justin for the next election.

Have CBC television shows improved? Nope, same old embarrassing junk. So where did the money go.. bonuses?

Meanwhile The Rebel, another opinionated news organization, gets zilch.

Says it all about our corrupt tin-pot federal government.

Canada, meet Sweden.

CBC are the national broadcaster. They represent the majority of Canadians. You can’t please everyone. You live in a country that is primarily liberal – if you are not used to that fact by now, that’s your problem.”

39.47% is not the “majority of Canadians”.
Leftards are so delusional.
