MONOLOGUE: CBC's Mansbridge kept his ties to top Liberals secret -- What else is he hiding?

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

My monologue on last night's show -- about the secret ties between Peter Mansbridge, the Liberals and the CBC -- got such a reaction, we've made it into a stand-alone video you can share.

I asked: Why did Peter Mansbridge keep his relationship with top Trudeau Liberals a secret?

Like the fact that Mansbridge jetted to Italy to preside over the luxury wedding of Kate Purchase, Justin Trudeau’s director of communications, to Perry Tsergas, another top Liberal operative?

And why was Kate Purchase’s father, Bruce Anderson, allowed to have a seat on Mansbridge’s exclusive “At Issue” TV panel for years — even though he was in an obvious conflict of interest?

What other private dealings does Mansbridge have with the ruling Liberal Party that he hasn’t disclosed?

This is a shocking story.

But it has been virtually ignored by the mainstream media. Imagine their national freak-out if a top CBC journalist had a personal relationship with Stephen Harper’s communications director — and put his father on a CBC panel. What a double-standard!

How can the CBC even pretend to be independent and unbiased now?

It really is time to get rid of the $1-billion/year state broadcaster. SIGN OUR PETITION at

the only honest person on the “at issue” panel is chantel herbert, who works for liberal mouthpiece organization Torstar.. then you had anderson who every once in awhile would mention that he had a daughter working for trudeau and of course the “conservative” voice was andy coyne who is the uncle of a trudeau… and all for (a reported) $1500 per appearance..

mansbridge is an anti semite…..but then again they are the majority at cbc..

Mark, resignation would require some level of morality.

The CBC is corrupt and serves as a communications/campaign department for the Liberal party. Nothing new here. The really big scandal is that the Conservatives were in power for nearly ten years and literally did nothing to fight and shut down this monster.

This guy was just too good to be true. I remember all the accolades he received when he chose to stay in Canada and not leave for more lucrative work in the USA. It ingratiated him even more with Canadians who themselves search for identity. I think he stayed in Canada because he secretly knew he would not make it in the US.
What a smug phony POS. He thinks he can decide what is good for the Canadian electorate? How dare he, how dare he draw a salary off my dime. Fire his sorry ass without delay. Oh and no F**king pension either. Loser, go find a job where boot licking will not fuel your sense of self importance, but rather expose you for the sniveling unsure little man you are. You think you are important? If so you did not earn it. It was false. How do people who claim fairness, put on a facade for their adoring public actually face their true selves? I want this guy gone…take the CBC with you, the two of you are the poster children for parasitism on a parasite. Get off the Canadian Tax Payers’ back and get a real job.

All the more reason we need TheRebel.Com. The main stream media is totally corrupt.

Mark Goddard – he’ll probably get a state funeral for being a Liberal bootlicker!

How can Mansbridge ever report objectively on Trudeau and the Liberals? Now we know he has a personal relationship with Trudeau and that they are buddies. So in other words, Mansbridge has lost his credibility. He should resign.
commented 2015-11-13 22:36:22 -0500
At least I have fond memories of the look on Mansbridge’s face, when PM Harper won his majority. Thank God I got live under the steady leadership of a real leader, who didn’t need the CBC, or the UN in his pocket to win.

Owen very well put.

I’d suck up to big $$$ too, if I had no redeeming value anywhere else. Imagine having your own pet Ass-Kisser! Who would need a magic mirror? Peter Mansbridge holding your shorts out in the morning for you to step into? I just really feel sad for his followers, because this tape revelation finally demonstrates what integrity level exists (low), and how far and to whom he’s sold his ass. It really makes his political ‘interviews’ irrelevant, when you see where the allegiances actually are; he has to kiss the correct ass correctly, and it shows on screen.

Sean with his usual foolishness , as if we will al ljust stop caring if he commands us to.

Technical note: You guys are really going to need to add a date prefix to your articles since you will very soon be running into name collisions with new articles on recurring themes, e.g., “20151113_monologue_cbc_mansbridge_liberals”.

Peter Netterville – I agree, they can go first, if they are so certain that, their ridiculous ideology is right, but they had better not expect me to follow! If God wanted population control, he would have said so, instead he said to be fruitful and multiply!

Those that advocate for the reduction of human population should lead by example.

Ezra this has been going on since the Senior Trudeau days…..Peter & his ex wife Wendy….run the CBC have for decades…lets face it Ezra.. only the destruction of the country is going to undo this alliance between media, & progressives… sad days ahead.

With the obvious conflict of interest Bruce Anderson had, one has to wonder about the integerty of Chantal and Andrew who we have always respected and enjoyed. Surely they must have known. We watch At Issue on a regular basis and never once heard any comment addressing this issue. In any event since since watching Mansbridge’s performance with Trudeau post election we have had second thoughts about the show in general and are more likely now to pass on it.

Giggling, sitting in the back seat of a car, comparing the similarity of their ties comes across like a report from a high school prom? However, such cronyism is par for the course for the CBC.
Peter Mansbridge likes to hobnob with the rich and famous. For example, in June 2010 he attended the meeting of the Bilderberg Group in Spain:
That meeting was also attended by Bill “Microsoft” Gates who gave a TED presentation in February 2010 on how to reduce the global human population in order to combat alleged man-made global warming.

Sean, exposure of the CBC’s love affair triangle with the media and the Liberal party IS worth fighting over. That is focus of corruption in the Canadian left.
commented 2015-11-13 15:47:30 -0500
This isn’t a story worth fighting over

Mansbridge giving Trudeau a “knob job”.

Would you expect anything else from the Canadian Bigot Corporation??

John Bossy: Ask her to change the station to one that you can both enjoy that doesn’t mention politics.

Justin Crudeau and his friends, walk a very fine line, between Devious and Fraud. Crudeau should be given six months to prove himself worthy of his position and then a new election should be called. Alas, by that time the Country would be so screwed up, it would not make any difference.

Sorry about the machine gun posts everybody. My computer seems to be backfiring.
