I gave up on the CBC some time ago. Every once in a while I see an article linked to it somewhere and occasionally click on it to see how bad a job they've done. More often my partner lets me know if something worthwhile appears, which happens maybe once every other month.

It's a terrible source for finding out what's happening in Canada and the world, but that is also true of all the major networks. TV is especially bad. If you value your brain, never watch it.

You need to find a new object of fun.   Like Joe Biden maybe.  

I think we should use his performance to make retard jokes popular again.

Unfortunately whenever I post a video or article disparaging Biden I can't get any conservatives to read it.

They have no trust in anything I post, regardless of the content.  They won't even look at it.

This is Trump's legacy.

I don't know of them.

Are they a commercial news network, or government funded?

Commercial means ratings drive content.  I never trust those priorities in journalism.

The CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) is government funded and its content is oriented very much the way your ABC is.

In other words they don't rely on ratings for revenue, so they don't need to be sensationalist and controversial and can just tell the truth.

Also known as forcing the audience to eat their vegetables.

In other words, they don't have to even pretend to listen to their audience, which in the case of the CBC certainly, is a captive one because there are very few alternatives in this country.

And the government funds them, and okays what they can say and not say.

Absolutely no feedback or comments from the public allowed.

I wouldn't know.  I'm sure that people do comment about the CBC on Facebook and Twitter.  The network is undoubtedly aware of just how much contempt a majority of the population has for them, even from the comments that were allowed on the article I posted here published by them.

They see their job not as reporting the news, but rather, 'creating awareness' (of their issues) and moulding public opinion.
