More Liberal CBC connections EXPOSED

And the plot thickens... will the folks at the CBC just finally admit that they goofed BIG TIME on this one?

h/t to National Newswatch on this one.
On CBC/Pynenburg and her official Liberal ties...

Last week, we pointed out that CBC and Frank Graves (significant Liberal Party donor as well as someone who has been offering "Culture War" political advice to the Liberals) commissioned a poll for CBC based on a supposedly neutral "viewer-inspired" question.

However, the "viewer" in question was one Mary Pynenburg, former two-time federal Liberal Party candidate in British Columbia.

It has now come to our attention that Mrs. Pynenburg is the Vice-President of the National Women's Liberal Commission, and a proud member of Canadians Rallying to Unseat Stephen Harper (CRUSH), a radical anti-Stephen Harper group.

She is also a major donor to the Liberal Party, having donated over $14,000 to the Liberals since 2004.


It is beyond the pale that CBC consistently engages in political information and analysis from a Liberal-backing pollster in response to a Liberal-inspired question with no disclosure and certainly no apologies afterwards.

It would almost be comical if CBC was not the recipient of over one billion dollars per year from Canadian taxpayers.

    So was it just incompetence on the part of the CBC, or do they have a not-so-hidden, secret agenda?

    The CBC would/could do themselves a lot of good, at least in the minds of "the right", by simply employing a tactic such as "... an now with an opposing view is ..."! I might even start to watch again and wouldn't the advertisers like that ... more adverts less subsidy!

    I post on a board for firearms owners. I'm a law student, and have been working with some owners on a s. 74 Firearms act challenge regarding a recent reclassification by the RCMP of a restricted long gun.

    We have a separate, password protected forum for those who are affected.

    We began to get requests through the forum by CBC employees, to do a 'story' on the issue. When we rebuffed their advances (because we don't want it to prejudice our case, their coverage would not have been helpful), two different reporters attempted to gain access to the forum by fraudulently posing as affected firearms owners, providing falsified registration documents, and images.

    The CBC have no ethics. Period.

    A public inquiry or questioning at the Heritage committee would be the logical next step.

    Any idea why those being questioned/investigated would not cooperate to clear up any misunderstanding?

    Why are some in the media not interested in making sure we don't have potential bias/conflicts cleared?

    Please. The CBC doesn't hide its agenda. It's extremely forthcoming about it.

    I wonder what topics we could send to Mr Graves on which to conduct a poll. Any suggestions?

    The cbc and Taber and most of the Toronto media think that theres nothing wrong with what they're doing . They believe it is their god-given right to use the cbc to promote and help out their beloved liberal party at taxpayers expense . This will last until there is no more taxpayer funded cbc . As long as they can get their message out at taxpayers expense they will continue to do so . Kill the cbc . Kill it dead .
