CBC to Investigate Itself

How ridiculous is that? They're going to conduct a study to see if they're biased? Come on, what a waste of time and money, our money. Of course they're biased. Ezra has a good post today on that. If they want some outside party to help with their "so called" investigation, how about come to us bloggers. There is plenty instances where bloggers have pointed out bias. CBC, what are you waiting for, we'll point out bias for ya. We will show you specific examples.

We already know what the results will be. It will be a whitewash, a joke. How are Canadians supposed to take that seriously? It would be like Osama Bin Laden investigating 9/11. or the Nazis investigating whether they were anti-semitic.
Time to stop wasting our taxpayer dollars on Mothercorp. Shut 'em down.

Update: What is Rick Salutin at Globe and Mail smokin'?
CBC and Frum: Ships in the ideological night
Counterpoint: Consider the CBC, where David’s late mother reigned, and which Harperites accuse of being left and Liberal. Should leftists defend the CBC? Hell, no, they should attack it – for being so far to the right. Look at CBC’s prestige political panel: two of three members are Andrew Coyne, of hard-right Maclean’s, and Allan Gregg, who polls for Preston Manning to show how right-wing Canada now is. Its chief pundit is Rex Murphy, now also at the National Post. Take former journalists in the Harper government, like minister Peter Kent and senators Mike Duffy and Pamela Wallin – they all had serious CBC careers. Is CBC training right-wing media agents? The case is at least as strong as the Pakistani Taliban being behind the Times Square bomber The only Liberal media senator is Jim Munson, who came from CTV! CTV is now where I go for left-wing analysis. CBC management is so daft they may believe they are left because Harperites say so, prompting them to add even more conservative stuff, as they drift ever further to the right, at some point passing David Frum, still standing still, like ships in the ideological night.


  1. We can shut them down or make them Conservative
    slant. Then they can still be biased. Maybe all we have to do is fire everyone from Peter Mansbridge on down. By the way, I have a TD Canada Trust account.

  2. How about we fund Sid Ryan, to see if Canada needs more unions.

  3. It is a given that the CBC will absolve itself. This, while blaming the Conservatives for making them waste money to investigate itself. Watch for commentary by prominent Liberals and Dippers.

  4. There is one thing that I have known all my life and I'm pushing 70 years, is that I've always had more in common with the Americans than the kind of Canadian the CBC wants me to be.

  5. I have long thought about how to empirically measure media bias, I just have yet to get around to setting up an experiment. In my semi-expert opinion, the best measure for tv Newsworld is the wording of the captions at the bottom of the screen when they are reporting a story and how much time they spend covering an individual story.

    For online content, they need to start with Kady O'Malley.

  6. Not only are they not going to find bias but I expect they will wail about how they are excluding the hardcore left in their views. Not that it appears that way to me. (real conservative)

    You're probably right. You know, I would love it if the AG could audit CBC's books. I bet she would discover interesting things.


This is my home. I hope you respect it. I will not tolerate profanity or anything that is not suitable for family consumption.
