Fresh accounts of harassment at state broadcaster emerge: Who will hold CBC accountable?

Brian LilleyArchive

Even before the Jian Ghomeshi story broke, many of us in media had heard about the bullying and harassing culture at CBC but having the evidence to actually run with a story always proved difficult. 

Now post-Ghomeshi, more are speaking up and new stories are emerging about the disturbing culture at the CBC, this time from the flagship radio program, As it Happens along with complaints about the HR department itself and the very person they brought in to fix the problems.

Watch my report for the full story and if you agree that CBC needs to be held to account, remember to sign our petition to SellTheCBC.

Let me put it this way: its been more than 20 years since I filed a complaint with the CBC Ombudsman, and I am still awaiting an answer. So much for being a neutral party to address complaints.

Well past the time to defund the CBC and sell it off, either in whole or part it out,

What I really don’t get about Canada’s CBC problem is the legality of how a government organization that extorts a billion and a half taxpayer dollars a year from the taxpayer to produce a bunch of crappy lefty schlock and so-called Canadian content BS, who promotes through social engineering the proven destructive cultural Marxist-gender identity politics-social justice warrior-Pinko crapola of the far left’s lunatic fringe ideology screechers, who also has no hockey, is infamous for a corrupted workplace, operates outside of its mandate in competition with private enterprise (the rest of the Media Party), whose head cheese Hubert La Crotte has been caught lying and stealing, and who censors those very extorted taxpayers who take the time to challenge the BS, in the CBC’s own taxpayer-funded Comments sections! Whether the censorship is out-right or a closing down of the Comments sections.
How can they get away with that – legally?

It is indeed a sad state of affairs when the public broadcasting station in Canada is “allowed” to go unchecked and unaccountable for so many years. I do NOT watch CBC in any way, shape, or form! Perhaps they need more of a reality check by the public!

With all the S&M and K-Y group gropes going on there where do they find time for broadcasting?

Off topic, but that garden area that Mr. Linley reported from looks like an ideal location for a windmill. The green mayor and council of Vancouver should get on that and make it so.

The other main stream media such as CTV, Global, etc, will never call out the CBC on this abuse. It won’t happen. TheRebel is the only one that will out this disgusting behavior.

As it Happens, formerly one of my favorite CBC shows, has taken a sickeningly hard left-turn over the past few years. I can’t tolerate it anymore. You KNOW it’s bad when Radio Canada (French CBC, mainly out of Quebec which I now listen to in the car) seems balanced and fair compared to the English CBC. Quite a disgusting abuse of tax money.

Please take a minute to sign and share with other right-thinkers!!

Had Harper done that earlier,it would have assuredly been the death of him. Turns out he didn’t have to do anything to be vilified by the left, but I understand why he didn’t do it.
I don’t think it is going to matter how bad CBC gets, as long as the Liberal Marxists get into power it won’t be touched. I was hoping that if Harper got in this time he would be able to afford to torch them, since it would undoubtedly be his last run, and he wouldn’t have anything to lose.

Should anyone be surprised that the CBC operates as a Stalinist cult?

If it was a case that Harper was afraid to go after and pull the plug on the CBC just reveals the depths of his CINO cowardice.

A supreme housecleaning and demolition is required and the CINOs in the CPC are ball-less to do it.

When the end finally comes for the CBC it will be very quick, dirty and painful. They are without a doubt the most despicable part of our political system.

Not liberals, not the cbc, not the unions, none of them give a shit and it shows
commented 2016-05-26 20:04:44 -0400
What are CBC employees getting in exchange for their union dues? Aside from a tax deduction, not much…
commented 2016-05-26 19:54:24 -0400
Who will hold CBC accountable? Short answer. No one! In fact, his hoyal righness, dictraitor EL BOW will likely give them even more taxpayer monies to buy their way out of this latest revelation!
