CBC Censored Tory Campaign Ad?

This is news to me... did the CBC step in to block a Conservative campaign ad during the 2006 election?
"[W]hen the Liberals rolled out their attack ads, claiming Stephen Harper was going to put "soldiers in our streets". It was absurd, and it backfired.

The point is Telecaster, run by Jim Patterson, didn't censor them, even though they used images of Stephen Harper without his permission.

But when the Conservatives produced a response to those attack ads -- showing video clips of Liberal MPs admitting their own attack ads had gone too far -- Telecaster censored the ads. Telecaster ordered the Conservative ads off the air.

The story gets worse: Telecaster yanked the ads after a complaint from the CBC, because it was their footage that captured the MPs making those statements. The CBC actively intervened to knock Conservative ads off the air. And the Telecaster censor, who just happened to be a major Liberal donor, was happy to comply.

Isn't that a cosy little family?

Has the CBC ever complained about the Liberals using images of Conservative politicians taken from CBC cameras? Don't be ridiculous. The CBC is a wing of the Liberal Party -- the left wing.

When it's not busy trying to yank Conservative ads off the air, it's running Liberal propaganda using tax dollars -- long infomercials, thinly disguised as political talk shows or "documentaries.""
The CBC, stepping in to stop a Conservative response ad, right in the middle of an election??? EXCUSE ME?

I'll point you to my post from late last night about CBC bias... if you can't see it for yourself, then you must be a regular CBC viewer... and likely a Liberal, and NDP, or a Green.

CUT OFF THE FUNDS... enough is enough.

    Censored on the grounds that it's the CBC's property? Well doesn't the CBC belong to the people? If they want to act like a private corporation, they can stop receiving funds, immediately!

    Good point...let's get rid of the CBC once and for all. Put the money to health care or poverty. It makes no sense for a Conservative government to fund Liberal media.
