Gotta love the CBC


Recommended Posts

I love the CBC.

Look at the large print. I went though all 11 article listings and NONE of them have large print of quotes except for one which i'll put below this one. The CBC will do ANYTNING to persue, subdue, and subconsiously brainwash it's audience (which many here are victim of and don't realize it):

It's just like the CBC to find ways to show what side they agree with.

A news organization that was at least trying to appear non-partisan would at least do that with a quote summarizing each sides' position.

But the CBC is hardly non-partisan.

About now, Leafs games are about the only thing worthy of watching on CBC. And I'd pay to see them all on the Leafs channel just to not have to tune in that channel.

As of this morning the CBC was still leading its radio newscasts with the Gitmo suicides. Beating it for all it's worth. :(

What the F? What are you complaining about? It's a news item, and it's the latest news, and the stuff in the text boxes is one of the most relavent portions of that news.

What an incredibly bizarre accusation. I'm amazed that anyone would find these links biased.

The hatred of the CBC has reached a level of freakishness.

Uh, first of all it is NEWS. And the CBC does report the NEWS. Imagine, an attack on font size FGS. What's next, subminal messages?

Added: For the sake of argument, look at the lead stores here:

Tories rule out new anti-terror powers

http://www.canada.com/topics/news/national/index.html

Terror suspects subject to torture

http://www.ctv.ca/

Whoa, check out those fonts. Warning: Major brainwashing on three main news sources.

lol!

It's crazy, huh? That's the kind of thing that the fanatical CBC haters call bias I guess.

There's even a website called "cbcwatch". I've checked it out and boy oh boy, are they complaining about zippo. Every fart sounds like bias to them.

Hmmm. So the contention here seems to be the bold-print quotes are meant to sway our opinion in favour of the defendents.

And yet, in this earlier CBC article, the bold-print bits are definitely directing statements AGAINST those same people

http://www.cbc.ca/news/background/toronto-...plot/index.html

And this article sings the praises of the new Anti-Terrorist Act

http://www.cbc.ca/news/background/cdnsecurity/

And here, a photo gallery related to the raid and arrests

http://www.cbc.ca/news/photogalleries/flas...llery=bombraids

And here, the headline is "Homegrown Extremism"

http://www.cbc.ca/news/background/toronto-...-extremism.html

Hmmm. In THIS article, which details the men arrested and charged, only their names are in bold print.

Maybe that shows some sort of bias, too.

Whenever I hear a CBC report from Washington, Israel or Iraq I never assume it to be inaccurate but I do believe checking the same news story from another source is advisable. After listening to Allison Smith taking issue with the Canadian Ambassador to Turkey as to whether the bombings in Ankara and Istanbul that killed 25 people were actually committed by "terrorists", as the ambassador suggested, I have been wary of the CBC.

I wouldn't care about font sizes if they were at least trying to seem non-partisan and did one for each point of view. But instead they are unabashedly liberal and continue to operate as such. If the CBC wants to be partisan and biased like Fox News they should have to survive without government funding.

I have no problems with a federally owned broadcasting company. But such a company should be required to be non-partisan. It shouldn't be offering more liberal or conservative viewpoints. If the CBC insists on being a liberal campaign machine it should be sold and funding discontinued.

I recommend, Sir - as Dick Cheney does - you simply keep the dial firmly affixed to Fox News. That way nothing disturbing to your worldview will come down the pipeline.

The rest of us, we'll read multiple sources and make up our own minds. I stand by the BBC and CBC, I think they are both excellent news organizations. I don't think you could stretch any further than the logic we see here - where quotations that are perceived as negative to the right-wing show supposed bias. Are the quotes not valid? Perhaps if you disputed the validity of the reporting as opposed to 'what' is being shown - in other words, if you debunked them - you might have more success.

In terms of claims of bias. one thing can be said: It is demonstratable that reality has a left-wing bias.

Mike, if I understand your point, it's that the boxed, large font quotes only reflect one side of the story. That's it?

Fuggedaboutit. It's a minor detail. I found the two articles factual although I felt that some details were left unsaid. If that's your example of bias in the CBC, then you'll have to back to the fishing pole.

And PocketRocket, I saw no boxed, large font quotes in the links you provided.

Yeah I guess I should have been a little more clear on that point.

Out of 11 stories on their website that day, not ONE had the same huge fonts as the CBC's article did regarding their 2 beloved people in Canada: Natives and Immigrants.

How can one consider the below to be impartial when you are putting it what looks to be size 20 bold print which is highly unlikely for most CBC 'news' articles. Remember, this is a news article - not an viewpoint based column. I'll try to mach the font size the best I can:

"'The accused are not aliens

from another planet. They are

Canadians accused under the

Criminal Code. No more, no less."

Then the natives:

'The Haudenosaunee are a people

of peace and do not condone

violence of any form.'

(Is that way there are many warrants for arrest including attempted murder charges?

It's called a "pullquote". Newspapers use them to highlight key comments from the article and, often, to fill space on the page (you neglected to includ ethe attribution lines). It seems that the CBC has recently redesigned its web site, including a new pull quote style. In short there's no smoke here, let alone fire.

I think it is high time that the embilical cord is cut between the CBC and taxpayer's money. If these bleeding-heart nutcases who manage, produce and act in the utter trash that is produced by CBC, it is time that we cut them loose and operate instead like PBN, by doing fundraising in order to stay on-air. I can tell you that if given a choice, I would never donate 5 cents to the CBC in order to keep them operating. Unfortunately I do not have a choice and my tax money continues to be funnelled to this huge money vacuum.

McQueen - again, you pepper your arguments with insults. It's not helpful. Ms. Oda, the Minister of Culture, recently reaffirmed the government's commitment to the CBC, so it appears it's not going anywhere for a long time.

I think it's time to get over it. You probably spend way more on coffee everyday than you contribute to CBC.

Oh really?

The total cost of the CBC is almost 1 billion dollars a year.

$30 a month times 20,000,000 tax payers is 600,000,000.

It costs me more than a cup of coffee a day.

If you and your wife are the only people in your house that pay taxes, you are spending $100 a month on the CBC to spew propaganda.

Ahh, that's your problem....

- $1B divided by 20 million is $50/YEAR

- if you drink coffee every day that $50 bucks covers only 14 cents a day.

Where do you get coffee for 14 cents a day?

Your problem is your year only has one month.

You and your wife should consider a child,not only will you learn math from your child,You'll get $100/month from the gov't for him/her. :rolleyes:
