CBC’s Rick Mercer lies about the Conservatives on air, again


The CBC ran out one of their in-house ‘comedians’ to go after the Conservatives after the CBC was exposed creating a potentially illegal media cartel (see here) but Rick Mercer only ended up confirming his anti-Conservative bias and further destroying any credibility he had left:

This from University of Toronto Law Professor Ariel Katz:

katz mercer

Would love to see the Conservatives sue Mercer for calling them thieves.

Also: See earlier post on Mercer lying about the fake robocall scandal here.

    The only thieves, are Mercer and his left-wing cronies…

  2. Fat Tony Says:

    As the boss of CBC, Peter Mansbridge most likely gave Rick this assignment.

  3. Liz J Says:

    YES, sue funny boy Mercer, this stuff is not funny. Good luck with that ever happening and he/they know it. Problem with Conservatives is they sit back and let this crap fly, people believe it. If enough such lies keep coming we get Trudeau for PM which is what this is all about. CBC is a blight on our democracy when Mercer and his ilk spew lies and go unchallenged.

  4. Ontario Girl Says:

    Looks like he got Mansbridges email and he’s obeying the BOSS. Guess the past Liberals are thrives too?

    • tim Says:

      Yes, it’s common knowledge that “past Liberals” are indeed thieves. That’s a good part of the reason they have become so irrelevant- AdScam. They still think they were entitled to our money; nobody who really mattered went to jail and the party still hasn’t returned the 100+ million they took and told us we should be grateful. *******

  5. Guffman Says:

    Is there anybody who collects a CBC cheque (our money) who doesn’t harbour a seething hate for Harper and the Conservatives, and will take any opportunity on air to slag them? Mercer certainly takes any opportunity he can, even if it means making up fictitious legal grounds to support his boneheaded ‘rants’.

  6. bocanut Says:

    Mercer’s rant schtick is way past it’s best before date.
    The premise of how a government funded organization can secretly merge with other media to censor the government that funds them for the benefit of another political party belongs in a Kafka play not in the ravings of a washed-up unfunny “comedian”

  7. mahmood Says:

    If the state didn’t fund this guy no one outside of the Rock would know what a Mercer is. I’d be ok with that.

  8. Liz J Says:

    CBC’s so-called comedy shows are nothing more than a cover, an opportunity to get away with outrageous anti-government satire, it doesn’t have to be true, its an excuse to make fun to the point of disrespect for people who take the bother to serve us in government and especially as Prime Minister of a Conservative government. It’s governments at all levels and leaders who are Conservative they delight in putting down, look what the bellicose Mary Walsh of This Hour did to Mayor Ford, CBC took their show to his front door which was as far out of line as it gets.

    • Hans Says:

      Fair use, fair dealing, fair commentary are the notions under Copyright law that allow partial use of other’s work as long as it is attributed to the creator of said work.

      Rick Mercer is behaving like an ignoramus, for the purposes of his rant. The only place he will get any laughs is when he is laughed out of court.

      But then a greater ignoramus Fraulein Jen Gobbels, CBC Media Party has decided that a concerted propaganda campaign is what is in order as the law doesn’t support their candidate “True-Dope-ia”.

      Fair Dealing: MEDIA PARTY OUTRAGE

      Conservatives are ‘big meanies’ who will rightly lampoon “True-Dope-ia”‘s unfitness for office; so Jen has to co-opt the law to make it behave as the Media Party have deemed necessary to get their preferred candidate elected.

      Only THEN can the ‘authorized stealing of the LIEberal party of ADSCAM’ be rightfully ‘entitled to its entitlements’; hence only the RIGHT KIND of people get government ‘funding’!!!

      LIEberals have an addiction to ‘other peoples money’ ie taxpayer’s money…the CEEB wants it’s government funding to the level they have deemed necessary; so they’ll ask for a cool $2 BILLION…like stealing candy from a baby hey Rick?

      Paul Martin describes Alfonso Gagliano

      But of course the Media Party has finally discovered that the Canadian taxpayer is not Santa Claus…notwithstanding “True-Dope-ia”‘s admiration for dictatorships!

        Also Hans, Jean Chretien lied in the HOC and to Canada:

  9. Jen Says:

    The enemy within Canada media barks and their reporters stands attention to do what they have no clue what needs to be done just as long they attack the conservatives at every turn for no apparent reason . Ask a ‘controlled reporter why they hate the conservatives so much to go to get length to lie about them in order to keep and protect LPC, the lame answer will be “I don’t know why only that we are told to do so.
    Justin and Mulcair and their parties have medis to their name to use whenever it suit them.
    PM Harper and the CPC have no media to their name yet, miraculously the PM managed to survive without their help.
    Australian PM ABBOTT could not have said it clearer and true to every last word when he said ” He(PM HARPER) may not be recognized here (Canada), but he’s recognized internationally.”

  10. Sandy S Says:

    A number of years ago I thought Rick Mercer was funny, nowadays, not so much. To think we are funding this guy and his untruths.

  11. Sean M Says:

    The media desperation to protect and shield their candidate Trudumb for his own words is staggering. Trotting out an unfunny leftist activist like Mercer to spew lies and misinformation is typical of the leftist nature, the truth doesn’t matter, especially when trying to manipulate the viewer and interfering in an election. The CBC and other big media would be no worse if they actually had Joseph Goebbels or Saul Alinsky running their networks. The truth be damned, the media have an imbecile to elect. The level of corruption within the media runs very deep and is quite disturbing.

  12. Fat Tony Says:

    Sorry to be of topic here, but have all liberal MPs paid off their debts? I have not heard anything of this lately.

  13. Mary HInes Says:

    Peter Mansbridge’s letter to Jennifer McGuire to stop the use of CBC footage, started all this… What does Mercer do, when big boss Peter comes knocking…. you lie, you rant, you stand on your head = anything to please liberal boss Peter…. From the night PM Harper won the last election and Peter had to announce him as a winner, Peter has been working morning, noon and night to get rid of him… He is a disgrace to the journalism world….

  14. Dave Says:

    The first time I ever saw mercer, I thought he should be sent out into the Atlantic in a (very) leaky lobster boat. Time has not improved my thoughts about him.

  15. Jody Says:

    Why are people not up in arms when media form a cartel to control the message? This is a very serious issue and yet, the masses are goose stepping without any critical thinking.

    • Liz J Says:

      Thing is, Jody, people don’t know about it unless they listen to Sun News. MSM forming what they call a consortium to control the message is something we’d expect in Commie dictatorships like China which we know Trudeau has admitted “a level of admiration” for. The MSM is in effect tinkering with our democratic right to information needed to make our own decision as to who we want to govern best govern us.

      There should be an investigation into their consortium and charges need to be laid.

    Canada’s secret war in Iraq
    By Richard Sanders


    Listen to the tape from the beginning to the end of the interview with Sanders.

    Mercer could never do the job we Canadians are doing. He follows orders while we follow our instincts and so far, we have been correct. Research is too hard for the media to endure.

    Keep this in file you will need it + alert twitters

  17. Sandy S Says:

    They aren’t up in arms because the MSM is covering it up. It’s only Sun News and Bloggers reporting on it, so that doesn’t count in their minds.

    • Liz J Says:

      From now on we need to refer to the Trudeau loving/protecting Media Party by it’s full name: Media Party Consortium or for those who are uninformed we might need to spell it out: Media Party Consortium for Trudeau.

  18. Stan Says:

    If you take tax money and say your represent all Canadians, and claim you tell the truth, but you don’t, isn’t that stealing?

  19. Stan Says:

    Conservatives should use this Mercer footage in an ad explaining why the CBC budget needs to be cut and explaining the media collusion and bias.
    Ask why we give them a billion a year for Rick to lie to us.

  20. Brian Fairey Says:

    and they gave this guy the Order of Canada???

    • Liz J Says:

      Can it be taken away for lying……oh, no, forgot, lying about a Conservative government is OK, goes unnoticed.

      BTW, the Order of Canada is so bastardized it means nothing. We’ll never see Don Cherry make it but would love to see him be given one and then turn it down.

    • Fat Tony Says:

      Good point. One would think that a recipient of the Order of Canada would feel obligated to strive for accuracy, and honesty. He was quoted to say “…an honour to receive…”. I must be naive.

  21. Bubba Brown Says:

    CBC, Lies, say no more.
