Another Conservative MP’s statement made in House on CBC paying for stolen NSA documents

Mr. Larry Miller (Bruce—Grey—Owen Sound, CPC): Mr. Speaker, the CBC violated its own code of ethics in giving a payoff to Brazil-based former porn industry executive, Glenn Greenwald, for national security information stolen from one of Canada’s allies. Shockingly, Canadians watching the original TV broadcast were not informed of this cash-for-news scheme.

What is more, yesterday we learned that the CBC also grossly inflated the contents of the U.S. documents. According to Professor Wesley Wark, who was the national security expert used by CBC in its original story:

There was no support in the document for the claim originally made by the CBC that the communication security establishment in Canada would lend its technical expertise to the NSA effort.

The CBC should apologize for violating its code of ethics. It should apologize for concealing its cash-for-news scheme with a former Brazil-based porn industry executive, and it should apologize for allowing Glenn Greenwald’s personal and partisan agenda direct its news coverage. To the CBC: Just apologize.

    Does the CBC really think this is going to get them a 200 million dollar bailout from the Conservatives….? They haven’t got trained seal puppy James Moore to deal with anymore.

    EVER MINDFUL OF CBC HATEFULNESS, WE HAVE A BRAZIL-BASED PORN EXEC. AND NSA DOCS. A TRULY CORNY CANADIAN SPY THRILLER, BUT WITH CONSEQUENCES AFFECTING THE SECURITY OF MY COUNTRY. MAYBE THE CBC DOESN’T BELIEVE IN THEIR COUNTRY. MAYBE THEY THINK THIS COUNTRY IS THEIRS FOR THEIR OWN CONVENIENCE AS SO MANY OTHERS DO. IT DESERVES SOME THOUGHT. I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE THE BACKS OF ALL OF THEM.

    The CBC is full of stupefaction, which is – pardon the pun “secret.” – Under the table deals abound, but one must consider who the perps are. There isn’t one of them I would trust to any degree, simply because I know of who they are and their personal style of operation. Think of the personalities and their silhouette’s will come to mind – scary!
    The whole lot ought to be fired, CBC privatized or disbanded completely, and distinguish how many of them can stand on their own two feet.
    Now that would be gut busting wouldn’t it?

    CBC, CTV, G/M, ETC were all over the SNN and still are for the most ridiculous nonsense Yet, have you seen or heard the CTV, G/M, ETC go all over CBC for the abuse of the Canadian taxpayers’ dollar.? Now will they do so. In fact, we have never heard CTV talk about CBC’s abusing the taxpayers’s dollars for self purposes, which tells me that, the consparcy in media exists.

    I wouldn’t be surprise that Miller’s statement on CBC was blocked from viewers.
    Another one who we will not hear often is NDPQ CHARLIE ANGUS who LOVES to go before the cameras to talk about corporations and money but not peep about CBC ABUSING THE CANADIAN TAXPAYERS’ DOLLARS. Why? Because they are using CBC to keep their own (ndpq’s) scandals f5om the public.

    There’s always solidarity within the PPG.
