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.
