CBC expresses fake outrage about the trucker protest in Ottawa

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) is Canada’s state-run, taxpayer-funded TV broadcaster. In other words, they are Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s public relations firm. Of course, the Prime Minister is outraged by the thousands of truckers in Ottawa, calling for an end to Trudeau’s COVID mandates. So one of his dutiful CBC reporters, Hannah Thibedeau, dug deep to find something to enrage people, a neat pile of bagged garbage. You see, during their protest in Ottawa, the truckers have been cleaning up after themselves. As Jonathan Kay explains in his article in the National Post: “In true Canadian fashion, protesters even began policing one another’s behaviour. This included setting up ad-hoc litter patrols to clean up everyone else’s mess — leading to the unintentionally hilarious spectacle of CBC reporter Hannah Thibodeau trying to drum up outrage with a tweeted picture of neatly arranged garbage bags.” Kay also had this to say about the protest: The Ottawa police, who’ve been the adults in the room throughout all this, have predicted most trucks will be gone by mid-week. But …

Canada: CBC’s shift to the radical left

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) is Canada’s state-owned and taxpayer-funded news outlet. Most Canadians look upon it as the official PR firm for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. But a former producer for CBC, Tara Henley, who resigned this week, has come out with a scathing article stating she resigned from the network because of its radical shift to the left. When she started to work for CBC in 2013, Henley considered herself one of the more Liberal reporters in the newsroom, but eight years later, she was basically the most conservative, even though her views hadn’t changed. Fox News explains: “Henley, who identifies as a liberal herself, published her scathing resignation announcement on Substsack, detailing a newsroom stifled by far-left ideology that limits critical thinking and obsesses over race. In her piece, Henley blamed “a radical political agenda that originated on Ivy League campuses in the United States and spread through American social media platforms” whose proponents “monetize outrage and stoke societal divisions” for setting the tone of current media outlets such as the CBC. She …

An Orthodox Jew Allied with Evangelical Christians

“You believe that because you are an Orthodox Jew allied with Evangelical Christians.” Those words offend many people, especially Jews and Christians. Recently a Jewish man named Steve Maman, originally from Morocco, was interviewed by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC). The interview was in Montreal, and in French. The CBC is the state funded broadcaster in Canada. Also note, this is an election year in Canada and people are choosing sides. Steve Maman represents a charity that rescues women from terrible slavery under ISIS in the Middle East. He identifies the female victims as Yazidi and Christian. Most of the world believes he is a good man doing a good thing. To me, the CBC is bland and boring, a government-funded news source that never takes sides. It’s an expense for the taxpayers, and financial cuts are always possible. A brief interview in French, about an obscure charity, could not go wrong, but it did. Steve Maman praised the Government of Canada for its support of his charity and said that Canada was their most …
