Law professor says CBC possibly broke the law over Conservative ad boycott call

We all know that the real reason behind CTV, CBC and Bell trying to stop the Conservatives from using news footage (see here) – it’s about protecting Liberal leader Justin Trudeau but the CBC may have stepped over the legal line according to University of Toronto Law Professor Ariel Katz:

Not only has the Media Party fallen hook, line and sinker after being baited on this by the Conservatives, they have potentially broken the law in doing so.

    CBC loves interviewing academics, don’t they? And Katz is just a few blocks up the street from their headquarters in downtown Toronto. In fact, the U of T is so close you can walk to CBC on foot in 10 maybe 15 minutes. I’ll look forward to him appearing for an interview. #BreathlessBlueface

    With the exception of the CBC Im not sure I like this idea. Does this mean that anyone who has written a print column or reported on any story can have their work inserted into anyone’s political ad? Would they be paid? The MSM has basically allowed young Mr Trudeau to rise to where he is now, out of spite mostly, so, is this a death wish?

  3. Alain Says:

    More proof of the media party being the Liberals’ PR and not actual news agencies. They must not be allowed to get away with it this time.

    This reveals the most shameless bias yet, kind of the last straw to seal what we already know, they’re protecting Trudeau. It’s admitting his gaffes are a gold mine and could hurt his chances. What they don’t seem to realize is the people have a right to know what they’re voting for, it’s the job of the media to be honest brokers of the facts in politics and everything else.

      I like using boxing as an analogy to describe the corrupt nature of the MSM. Instead of serving as the ref in the ring and making sure both sides play by the rules, the MSM finds itself as the ones in Trudeau’s corner — one repairing his woulds, one squeezing the water bottle over his open mouth, and yet another giving him a pep talk before the fight resumes. They have certainly lost their way, that’s for sure.

    Media corruption… and this time they’re not even pretending to be “unbiased”… Another example of the Media knowing full well what an imbecile they have for a candidate. The Media will break the law and demand an end to free speech just to protect the Shiny Turd from his own words… just wow!

  6. Ontario Girl Says:

    Don’t try and put a negative comment about this on CTV’s Don Martins RANT because he won’t allow the truth of the matter…just allows people to comment who agrees with him. …just wow!

    In the end if his name was not Trudeau, he would still be a substitute drama teacher in some backwater somewhere. Such is the level of his intellect.

    THAT is why the massive heavy lifting and ideological protection given him by the neo-marxist left media.

    The beat goes on………
    All that is required for a juvenile brain fart is to ask Young “Middle Aged” Mr Trudeau a serious question.
    He (Trudeau), blathers some juvenile nonsense then dissapears and sends out Mr Garneau to put on a “shiny pony and dog show”.
    CBC tries to find a “Oh look a squirrel” story.
    Little Justin apparently thinks, with his very juvenile 8th grade penis joke, that the Liberal trait of exposing their genitals in public is also a conservative habit.
    I can assure the little “prince of platitudes”
    It. Is Not.
    Defund CBC Mr PM!

    I hope CBC implodes from within and those who ‘THINK’ that they are doing a ‘good’ job but are not- only following ‘ORDERS’ from the higher quarters ‘to manipulate the news,’ begin to realize that they were/are trained solely to echo and re-echo the same message given to them to report.
    Any one can work at CBC as a reporter just as long you park your brains ‘OUTSIDE’ . If reporters feel comfortable been told how to deflect, omit, criticize what they personally know its wrong and untrue to do so..if they truly feel comfortable with all this then they too deserve a backlash.

  10. Sandy S Says:

    Correct me if I’m wrong but didn’t the S.C. decision sort of sort it out. They ruled in favour of the Liberals using media content.

  11. ohboy Says:

    The media is on a power trip…they badly want to re-establish their relevance…at least in their own minds.

    • Liz J Says:

      What the media is doing could be dangerous to the country if enough people don’t wake up and realize what they’re up to. Trudeau is way over his head, we could end up with the same mess the US is in with an incompetent at the helm.

  12. Bubba Brown Says:

    The attitude we are dealing with here Conservative minded people is best expressed by the late Larry Zoe, CBC
    “[B]Harper�s treatment of the media is that of an ingrate. The media made Harper. The media also first made Trudeau and Mulroney. Later, the media made both Trudeau and Mulroney and their parties suffer at the polls.”
    The rest is here gentle readers;
