Reason CBC’s O’Malley is so protective of Avaaz?

Blogger (A Few Figs) sent me this link to a Avaaz petition asking to Save Canada’s Public Broadcasting:

“The Canadian government has refused to provide loans to the CBC to cover its budget shortfall this year.
This is forcing the CBC and Radio Canada to drastically cut over 800 jobs as well as programming.
The CBC is asking for temporary loans amounting to just $6 per Canadian, or less than 2 pennies a day for each of us. We can make this happen, so let’s pull out all the stops to deliver a massive petition to Parliament and Save the CBC!”

    If the petition was to cut funding by 50% and fire a lot of leftleaning honchos, and to make the cbc tell the truth, I might think of signing it.

      Don’t hold your breath on that one.
      How many news medias in the states are publicily funded-NONE. They are all PRIVATIZED.
      If the american media can work without the backing from the public, so can CBC.

      I am positive that there are wealthy people out there in canada who would gladly save and fund CBC.

  2. Ron Says:

    Come on be serious. Any petition that promotes the left and attacks Conservatives would get the same over the top support of O’Malley and the CBC hacks — it has nothing to do with them being unable to generate revenue by raiding the public pockets — they know with a few more lies, manipulations and outright activist attacks on Harper, they will re-elect their party of choice and get paid off. No, you do them a disservice by blaming their partisan incompetance on one simple reason – they have many, many partisan issues upon which to base their biggotry and bias.

    Maybe they can raise funds the way PBS does in the U.S.

    • Frank Says:

      PBS is a serious channel, with serious news programs. In my opinion, the CBC could not raise support the way PBS does (I’m a member) because its programming and news shows are low quality and no different then commercial channels: it can not make a case for viewer support. The CBC should be privatized and let to fend for itself. Saying that, if they think they could actually raise private viewer support, all the power to them to try.

  4. Martin Says:

    Wait just a minute. Avaaz is a US organization backed by an American billionaire businessman. Does the left really approve of American business interests interfering in our politics? I guess it all depends on who is doing the interfering, but normally CBC would be against this.

    • Jen Says:

      they are both alike for the same purpose.
      Of all the american media in the states-Soros picks on FOX MEDIA -now why is that hmm. Could be that FOX is very revealing on their stories with tapes, video, articles to prove their point. which I think is not acceptable by certain groups. No wonder they are ‘AFRAID’ of any right wing media to occure in canada.
      CBC knows that they will be ripped apart for the years of secretcy; lies and manipulation.
      If CBC didn’t do such a thing then there is no problems for a Sun TV.

    If the Left leaning citizens of this great country are not going to personally send in their $6 to support the CBC, why then should it fall on the tax payers shoulders.

    The “Rights philosophy” is “What can I do for my country”.
    The “Lefts philosophy “is “What can my country do for me”.

    It is up to the “Left” to start putting their money where their mouth is. Start supporting their interests if they feel that strongly about it.

    Come on Kady, you can start.

    • Jen Says:

      Anyone who works for CBC should pay for the upkeep of CBC just like the union workers who have to share out some of their hard earn money to pay union dues to their ‘big boses. The same should apply to CBC. Lets see how fast Kady or Evans or Mansbridge …. share out some of their dough for the upkeep of CBC tripe media.

  6. Acacia Says:

    Well…this news is interesting!

    Kady and her convolutions knew which end of the snake the head was, I see…LOLOL

    Not one more darned penny from this family!

    Sink the cbc-creature is our goal.

    Avaaz, you have way too much time on your hands….Pakistan is calling for help…get after something that will really help people.

  7. syncrodox Says:

    Why don’t we just cut to the chase and sell the CBC to Soros?


  8. Bec Says:

    With this little piece of whimpering panhandling floating around, anyone from the CBC has zero credibility. (not that they do anyway)

    Wow, it’s just pathetic that Kady has even wandered into a discussion re this organization and appeared, unknowing.

    This just isn’t something a CBC employee would or could miss but as usual, it’s something they neglect to report on.

    Where are the other so-called networks and print media outlets on this? MIA as usual? Covering the backside of a member of their backwoods little journalistic family?

    That’s the only conclusion that can be drawn, they are all in this together.

  9. Powell Lucas Says:

    I’m already forced to pay for this left-wing propaganda machine, not only through my taxes but through the fees collected by my cable provider. This is the same smarmy outfit crying for more of my money while they work to prevent a broadcaster that I would gladly pay for from reaching my screen.

    • Jen Says:

      And while you me all of us pay CBC CBC uses our money on caviar, limos, vacations -friends.
      Do you really think that CBC getting ‘FREE’ MONEY from the Taxpayers are going to spend our earned money to get good shows good media reporters etc- are you nuts(joke).

      And you are correct-it is a family affair.

  10. Patsplace Says:

    As the CBC goes down the tube, (and it ****** me off that CBC Radio is getting pushed under by the useless slime at CBC TV) they are getting more and more activist in their programming and endorsements. They see the writing on the wall and are going for the jugular in the hopes of getting a Liebral Government in there, so they can be handsomely rewarded for their nasty activities.

    • Jen Says:

      Of course they will get more and more activists-nobody else wants to go on air on CBC.
      I would rather go on David Rutherford or Roy Green or others like them radio shows, than on CBC.

  11. Fay Says:

    It is scary to watch this new CBC employee Kady O’ Malley manipulate the message to impose censorship on Canadians. Kady will laugh in the face of all Canadians if she is successful in her quest for censorship.
    CBC ignoring Canadian constitution.

  12. Stan Says:

    The CBC claims to be bent out of shape over the potential of bias at the new SunTV station.

    So why do they keep running a BBC segment with their news?
    The BBC has admitted to be biased to the left, so shouldn’t the CBC be aghast about that?

    • Jen Says:

      shouldn’t the CBC be aghast about that?

      How can CBC when it is a reflection of themselves; surely they can’t stop BBC- without stoping themselves(CBC)

  13. Fred Says:

    Maybe Soros can lend them the money?

  14. gimbol Says:

    So let me get this straight.
    Soros is funding political activity in Canada?

    Paging Elections Canada.

    Someone in the MSM please do your job and out this guy before the next election.

  15. Barry Says:

    Ever since I have payed taxes my money has gone to fund the Liberal propaganda machine,read CBC. The left leaning bias in the CRTC is manifested by the fact that I can see any leftist news network for free on cable but I have to pay for Fox News. There is nothing wrong with having a right leaning news network on Canadian TV if for no reason than to expose the leftist slant of Canadian networks. Canadian taxpayers shouldn’t have to support this inept caricature of a news organization anymore and let it survive on it’s own supposed merits.

  16. Mary T Says:

    Just wondering, do all those coalition mps get paid to spout their hate on those political shows.
    800 job losses, haven’t noticed any change in cbc without them. Double the number.
    Start with Kady and work down.

  17. CBC makes huge stretch with NRA/Long-Gun Registry “story” « BC Blue: One BC Conservative's view on it all… Says:

    […] how this has the CBC all freaked out but not a peep was heard (except in defense) when there were American’s trying to censor Sun […]
