Communist Broadcasting Corporation (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation or CBC nickname)

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) is a channel that is available on some cable systems in the United States. The CBC has been given the backronym (back acronym) of “Communist Broadcasting Corporation” since at least 1985 by those who believe that the CBC broadcasts socialist propaganda.

The CBC has also been called the “Canadian Brainwashing Corporation” and the “Canadian Bullshit Corporation.”


Wikipedia: Canadian Broadcasting Corporation
The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (French: Société Radio-Canada), officially branded as CBC/Radio-Canada, is a Canadian crown corporation (state sponsored) that serves as the national public radio and television broadcaster. The English- and French-language services units of the corporation are commonly known as CBC and Ici Radio-Canada respectively, and both short-form names are also commonly used in the applicable language to refer to the corporation as a whole.

Although some local stations in Canada predate CBC’s founding, CBC is the oldest existing broadcasting network in Canada, first established in its present form on November 2, 1936.

This suggests to me that yes indeed the purpose of the CBC has never been to make a profit. Instead it and the associated broadcast acts are attempts by the government to try and influence the way we think and to enshrine the legality of this intervention in law. (No wonder I have heard of people in West Vancouver calling the CBC the Communist Broadcasting Corporation.)

Not when it becomes an organ for whatever mushy-headed feel good do nothing cause that happnes to be the special of the day of the Government in charge. Much like CBC radio is here.  CBC television should be renamed “Communist Broadcasting Corporation”.

CBC - Communist Broadcasting Corporation Part 1
The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation recently celebrated 70 years of broadcasting, making it the oldest broadcasting service in Canada. It offers radio broadcasts, television series, National news, Foreign News as well as a comprehensive website available to all residents of Canada. While its basic package is “free”, it has also made strides into cable television, offering subscribers various television and radio options with additional features. Many have placed the CBC in the same category as the BBC, suggesting it has reached a dominating place in the broadcasting world. I write this piece with one thing in mind; to offer a view of the CBC that is rarely ever exhumed and discussed. The CBC is not just a broadcasting service but a dominating and powerful institution that has had a profound effect on Canadian politics, culture and society. While many may view this role as a positive, the reality that this piece will attempt to reveal involves a vehement scrutiny of this institution. This piece will focus on the negative influence the CBC has on Canadian society, its left wing political bias as well as the lack of accountability surrounding its financial structure.

Canadian media has historically been left of central for decades.  I had hoped this was changing with the CBC.
