NEW blacked out Ghomeshi documents, more CBC hypocrisy

Brian LilleyArchive

An Access to Information request has revealed new details about CBC's relationship with disgraced host Jian Ghomeshi and how the corporation planned to respond to the media storm.

I have a history of confronting the CBC -- and the CBC has a record of lashing out at me for asking too many questions, especially on the topic of sexual harassment.

This latest batch of documents shows the CBC refusing to answer questions it feels entitled to ask other organizations and businesses.


READ Brian Lilley's book CBC Exposed -- it's been called "the political book of the year.”

cbc is perfect for the new canada…a complete toilet that needs to be flushed.

Play it what way? You told me that you reported me ala flagged my comment. That is crying to mommy instead of being a man.

I am on a website that has many batshit crazy conservatives. I HOPE that I don’t have too many supporters.

Glenn, as you know, your anecdote doesn’t address the question of actual CBC bias. Neither does my (entirely accurate) summary of my daily CBC morning listening, which includes as recurring segments at least three purely business oriented items in my forty five minute daily listening window.

You haven’t bested anything. You have cried to mommy.

I frankly don’t give a festering fiddler’s fuck if you are “right” ….the community of those who know you are full go shit will neither put up with being silenced nor censored nor rhetorically one upped by the likes of you….I have bested much better.
commented 2015-07-07 00:20:54 -0400

LOL – thanks for proving my point. So if I am banned from here, it would only confirm that I was right.

Glenn Craig long ago expressed his interest in mobilizing bias to cleanse this site of me too, so Jimmy and Terry are not alone in being targeted by his particular brand of venom.

Live and let live is a better principle than Roberts Rules, which is specifically for committee meetings. This is social media, GC, the key concept being it is social.

I want a social media community that is tolerant and accepting, where individuals with strong views do not seek to mobilize bias to cleanse the site of everyone who disagrees with them.

I vote for Jimmy and Terry … and yes, me too … being allowed to express our views without harassment.
commented 2015-07-06 23:38:56 -0400
Jimmy – Glenn Craig has some sort of injury. Don’t pay him any mind.

Daniel Hunt – are you aware that Section 465 of the Criminal Code of Canada makes conspiracy a crime? Or do you think maybe the politicians who wrote that law were suffering the delusions of mental illness?

Listen, I flagged to therebel.media several posts that repeatedly and viciously called another poster “a pervert” “a pedophile” and “a queer” just because he posted arguments in support of the Ontario sex-ed curriculum. The rebel.media did not remove any of them.

Two posters really came after me, very viciously, for posting views similar to those the other poster posted. My views too supported the changes to the Ontario sex-ed curriculum. These two men repeatedly attacked my character, including with links to comments I’d posted elsewhere on social media, and encouraged other rebel posters to mock me for them, which they did, and still I did not flag them. Then the one wrote a sadistic story about the other one publicly sexually assaulting me. And they posted it on the rebel.media along with posts in which they accused me of liking it. Other posters applauded because they hate my views on the sex-ed curriculum. When I posted a view that said I objected to the apparent lust for sex crime (given making pornography about someone against their will and posting it online is a sex crime) that too many posters at therebel.media expressed, some vindictive person flagged it and it was removed. It was not insulting to any specific person; I named no one. I referred to a real situation in which a handful of posters kept calling me “queer” and “pedophile” – one poster continues to suggest I am a pedophile by repeatedly claiming I pose a danger to children – and “a pervert” and in which they repeatedly tried to cleanse me from this site by humiliating me sexually. Ugly stuff, Dan.

I got a death threat that I flagged.

Therebel.media did not remove the death threat, the sex crime pornography, or the ugly mobbing.

Satisfied? Or do you still think conspiracy (which, look it up, just means “an agreement” or “common design”) is some sort of evidence of delusion?

In my view, anyone who does not recognize our social intercourse these days is rife with vindictive conspiracies is naive.

That’s a pretty good caricature of what folks who don’t actually listen the news very much and spend too much time of the Rebel site think of mainstream media. But it IS, of course, a caricature. "

Unfortunately Terry it is not. Last week I visited a friend…he is in the habit of falling asleep with the CBC blaring on the radio….I could not sleep…but I saw ….and heard plainly how my friend got indoctrinated.

Jimmy….the most fundamental point about free speech is that people have the right to speak for themselves.l
commented 2015-07-06 22:32:18 -0400
Jimmy……you are out of order…..if the moderators of this site decide to kick you out on that basis…that is fine with me….and do not have the temerity to suggest that I am unreasonable.
commented 2015-07-06 21:56:07 -0400
“ROBERT’s RULES of ORDER.” Indeed. I utilized this concept over the ten years I ran the meetings of the Association I belonged to. Very effective.
commented 2015-07-06 21:54:09 -0400

No I don’t. And no – not a percentage of every single Canadian’s tax money goes to the CBC. 35 million people are not all paying for the CBC.
commented 2015-07-06 21:30:08 -0400
Glenn: Did Theo respond to your query? I did, in fact, get a response from him (though nothing from the Rebel Staff).
commented 2015-07-06 21:27:29 -0400
Jimmy claimed, “doesn’t mean it’s specifically YOUR tax money.”

I can’t believe you said that! Grief, Jimmy! That is an argument a child would use!

Do you actually think your tax money is marked and sent to specific areas based upon who it comes from? It all goes into one big pool, so all it is valid accounting to say that a percentage of your money goes into everything the government does with that money.
commented 2015-07-06 21:25:42 -0400
Jimmy. Wow! You admit that Ezra and Brian are actually good at something without the usual overbearing profanity! That’s one for the record book! There may be hope for you yet! Welcome to the Human Race!
commented 2015-07-06 21:24:18 -0400

So you just changed your position – people and articles DO get censored here and thus Joan is accurate with her position that The Rebel is no different than the CBC.

Why was it taken down out of necessity? Because it shed a light on the fact that Sun News Network was complete shit and the reasons why no one wanted to watch it? Yes – Ezra can’t have that. SNN failed according to him due to the carriage issue, which of course is absolute bullshit.

If you are going to try to sell yourself as the champion for free speech – you be can’t deleting articles, posts and members. That makes you a fucking hypocrite when you complain about the CBC and the MSM.

Rick just askin’, “How is it that any commentary about the actual story the blog is based on gets side tracked by our resident lefty trolls and turns into their agenda? Just asking……………..”

’cuz they are really good at being trolls as that is the purpose of a troll. At least, that is my observation.
commented 2015-07-06 21:14:50 -0400

Because the actual story is typically bullshit or the usual hyperbole that Brian and Ezra are SO good at, so there are better things to talk about over what they are selling.
commented 2015-07-06 21:12:23 -0400

Prove to me that you are actually paying for the CBC. Tax money going to the CBC – doesn’t mean it’s specifically YOUR tax money. You are also paying for many other things that a conservative probably doesn’t support, so the CBC is the least of your problems.
commented 2015-07-06 20:39:23 -0400
Jimmy, I was one of the few who were on-line when Theo posted is piece….I heard him….I knew where he was coming from…I stood with him and posted support to that effect….and in a way got “censored” along with Theo .

We live in a world where landlords can demand references from previous landlords….but tenants cannot demand references from former tenants…..

Theo …..never mind…..it was taken down out of necessity….the simple but disgusting reality is that even though we live in the 21st century….we live in a world where prospective employers can demand references from previous employers …..by no previous employee had better dare give a reference about a previous employer.

The site is still too fledgling to afford FUCK YOU fend offs in a lawyer feeding frenzy…that’s the way it is …for now….we may speak of this again tomorrow .

Hey Jimmy? I got a great deal for ya.

The moment I’m no longer forced to pay for the partisan BS at the CBC, is the moment I’LL NEVER VISIT THE SITE AGAIN.

Until then you’re going to read my comments there, standing against the tidal wave of mouth foaming from the left.
commented 2015-07-06 17:33:12 -0400

So how do you explain the Sun New Network blog by Theo Caldwell that was deleted, because obviously it went against Ezra Levant’s selling points and the viewpoint of The Rebel by acknowledging why it failed and it had nothing to do with being on channel 1 million like Ezra likes to say.

No conspiracy theory there.

And how about people here who have been deleted?

I will wait for your response.
