Mr. Peter Mansbridge
Canadian Broadcasting Corporation
P.O. Box 500
Dear Mr. Mansbridge:
While I do not watch The National or any other CBC news program, I do view your company’s website. I assume that a good portion of web articles form a portion of CBC’s broadcasting news programming as well. As a Canadian citizen, and a Canadian taxpayer, I have a right to object when news programming is erroneous (at best) or outright propaganda and false at worst. The list of “news stories” which fall into those categories is a long one. And CBC is by no means the sole offender.
I will concentrate on falsehoods and propaganda broadcast by CBC which is intended to drive us into the Third World War and eventual nuclear oblivion.
CBC’s reportage on Ukraine and Crimea suggests that there was a Russian invasion of the Crimea and that Russian troops occupy Ukraine. The fact is the former president, Viktor Yanukovych was deposed in a western (i.e. U.S. government / CIA)-backed coup after he decided Ukraine did not want to be part of the European Union. Yanukovych was replaced by chocolate baron Petro Poroshenko. Crimean residents voted: to a) break away from Ukraine; and b) apply to join Russia. The country has been embroiled in a civil war ever since. CBC has also reported, and allowed on-air comments to go unchallenged, that “Russia” shot down Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 when there has been absolutely no evidence to suggest this. The crash scene has been severely tampered, there is no chain of evidence and what “evidence” that does exist is not freely shared.
The world is being hoaxed into believing that there is an evil entity out there known as ISIS, and ISIL, and IS and Khorosan and some other names I can’t quite recall right now. No mention is made of John McCain’s links to ISIS (et al) and chief Boogeyman Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi (aka Simon Elliot). CBC reporting of CSIS agent Mohammed al-Rashad smuggling three teen British girls into Syria to “fight” for ISIS was quickly memory-holed. Typing John McCain and ISIS really does tell us all we need to know. The coining of the name“Khorosan” was a particularly foolish choice as Star Wars geeks would immediately associate it with Coruscant (i.e. false flag) with is probably why use of that term dropped rather quickly. People who understand Arabic chuckle when they hear “al-qaeda” because that is Arabic slang for “toilet.” Not unlike the john, the bowl, or the crapper. Can you imagine if Gerry Adams (or his voice actor for BBC news reports) had said, “I’m from the Crapper and I’m going to kill you all!”? We’d all die. Of laughter.
“We” have been bombing Syria for three years now and accomplished nothing. At the request of the government of Syria, Russia started bombing real ISIS positions and, lo and behold, ISIS is on the run. Or, more accurately, on the drive. In the new Toyota pick-up trucks “we” sent them. The U.S. military “apologized” for “accidentally” – and repeatedly – dropping food, ammunition, materiel and other supplies over ISIS positions. The Army also, uh, apologized for having trained “moderate” rebels which mysteriously and inexplicably ended up “joining ISIS.”
The success of Russia’s air force against ISIS ought to be applauded. Yet instead, they have castigated. As has Vladimir Putin and Russia as a whole. Russia effectively destroys ISIS in Syria and what do they get for their trouble? Turkey shoots (no pun intended) down one of their planes. I’m sure it’s just a tragic co-incidence that that plane had just finished bombing an ISIS-captured oil refinery that was loading oil onto one of Bilal Erdogan’s (the Turkish presidenet’s son) new oil tankers for trans-shipment to Europe and the West.
Getting back to Mr. Elliot, sorry, Mr. Abu Bakr-al Baghdadi (oh, boy’s that a scary Muslim name, isn’t it, Mr. Mansbridge?) how can he be in a position to release a new USAma bin Laden-style tape when the man was reported dead on April 28, 2015? In fact, the Jerusalem Post of that date reported that, not only had Mr. Elliot died, but his death took place in Israel, while being tended to by Israeli doctors.
Mr. Elliot’s video, as have all the other ISIS videos (or as I refer to them, “movies”) come from one source: Rita Katz and her SITE “Intelligence Agency,” an Israel-based outfit that somehow “discovers” these films on “Muslim websites” using methods apparently not available to anybody else.
To demonstrate just how hostile the CBC and the rest of the corporate media is to people who go off-script. Tom Mulcair asked one simple question after the purported death of USA bin Laden while being interviewed by Evan Solomon on Power & Politics: where’s the body? And you people pilloried him for it. It lead Newsworld newscasts for the next several hours. Mulcair was portrayed as a “conspiracy theorist” and ridiculed by pliant on-air guests to accommodate the agenda.
I actually wrote Mr. Mulcair a letter saying if it weren’t for the fact he was a taxer-spender, a global warming hoaxer and a gun-grabber, I would vote for him.
CBC continues to deceive viewers when it comes to the “financial crisis.” For the record, I watched “Meltdown.” And I watched the late Jim Flaherty’s own meltdown when the subject of Iceland came up. You may recall Iceland was the only country to say “no” to the banksters. And their government – that is the government the good people of Iceland elected after the previous one was proven corrupt – didn’t just say “no.” It arrested the banking criminals still within the country and issued Interpol warrants for those that escaped.
CBC’s reporting fails to mention that the “debt” taxpayers are expected to service is artificially created out of thin air by privately-owned central banks. The role of George Papandreou, Prime Minister of Greece until 2011 and his secret “payday loan” deals with Goldman Sachs is completely ignored. In fact, any mention of Goldman Sachs’ responsibility for financial criminality around the planet is overlooked in corporate media reporting.
I believe you have a responsibility to inform viewers that what you refer to as “debt” is a system where banks make stupid decisions, the central banks owned by those private banks print up trillions of Euros and Dollars, loan it to governments’ finance departments who then give it to the banks outright. Ireland was considered an economic miracle. Until the day after it joined the Euro.
As you know, CBC.ca has a comments section. I understand your show, “The National” ran a segment which discussed cutting off that feature. I don’t know, because, again, I don’t watch your show. The censorship of these comments is beyond draconian. It is blatant. Your censors as Keith Bilous’s ICUC are supposed to be on the lookout for offensive language, off-topic comments, CAPS, slander, “hate,” etc. They are clearly not only acting in a partisan manner, but acting on behalf of the clients of their “reputation management services,” another service provided by ICUC. In comments discussing “mass shootings,” any comment where I have inquired about what medications the purported “shooter” or “shooters” may have been on is swiftly killed. Medication, anti-depressants, SSRI’s will ensure my “content” is “disabled.” So either ICUC is protecting its Big Pharma clients. Or it is protecting CBC’s Big Pharma advertisers. Or both.
From my experience, it is obvious the Clinton Global Initiative (aka the Bill, Hilary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation) is obviously an ICUC client. Here is a selection of my censored comments:
Nice try. The “bail-in” regime (aka “negative interest rates”) was instituted as a “contingency” by Jim Flaherty (1 like)
“Question number one regarding such incidents which always gets deleted: Do we know what prescription medications the shooters were on, or were withdrawing from?”
Quoting “I still for the life of me cannot understand how a wife and husband can have a 6 month old baby and jointly plan and go on a killing spree leaving the baby with the grandmother.” “Kind of makes you wonder what medications they were on. Yeah, yeah, I know. Content Disabled.”
Adam Ghadan was Adam Pearlman before he “converted.” Joseph Cohen became Yousef al-Khatab. Zachary Chesser became known as Abu Tahlah al-Amtrikee. Adam’s grand-daddy ran the ADL. Joe used to hang out outside mosques and beat up Muslims.”
“Hey, Keith, why are you blocking comments mentioning SSRIs and other prescription medication?”
Quoting: “Man tries to open door on a European Lufthansa flight while shouting he wants to join ‘youknowwho’ but this site is ignoring it. Disgusting” “He ought to do a simple Google Image search of John McCain and youknowwho to see just whom he is joining.”
Context: Why don’t YOU run for office: “I’m not a psychopathic liar willing to tell anybody what they want to hear, willing to sell my own mother for a dollar and willing to subvert myself and my country to a foreign power. So, in short, I don’t have a prayer (of) being elected under the current system.”
“Hey, CBC, how can you still, in good conscience, report the popular narrative about “ISIS” when, if anything, this incident destroys that narrative once and for all? Turkey shot down a Russian fighter jet that was actually bombing REAL terrorist targets. I mean, seriously, what else do we need to know? This war really is a fake, a fraud, a farce and a hoax. And you are insulting the intelligence of millions of Canadians (to say nothing of the rest of the world) by continuing to pretend otherwise. Twenty-three years ago, you had the courage to expose the Babies and Incubators hoax (The Fifth Estate: To Sell A War). It’s time to grow another pair and expose this one before millions MORE people get killed.” (45 likes).
“I agree. The best conservatives can hope for is a conservative-minded leader (see Paul Martin) because the Conservative party is done for at least a generation. And I’m a lifelong conservative voter. My Liberal friends, the Harper regime was not conservative. It was fascist. (13 likes).
Quoting: ” ‘Sharia Law! Ontariowe! Communism! They’re taking our guns! Immigrants cancelling Christmas! Children smoking drugs in from of their teachers! Did I get everything, Stephen?’ Well, yeah, you missed the most important element of the Two Minutes of Hate: The Terrorists! They’re coming to get you! They’ll flatulate in our elevators! Tear the tags off of our mattresses! They’ll mate with our women (just ask the previous defense minister)! Oh, please, Mr. Government, save us!
Quoting previous comment: ” ‘ You might not support the mission, but you have to support the troops.’ Not if they’re committing war crimes we don’t. That’s why Chretien shut down the Canadian Airborne Regiment.” (3 likes)
“Are u.s. and other ‘allied’ troops still guarding poppy fields in Afghanistan and shipping the finished product home? I’m wearing a white poppy. I’m done with this crap.” (2 likes).
It’s a shame the “Whitewater hearings” spent so much time concentrating on a real estate scame and a stained blue dress while completely overlooking a little town called Mena, Arkansas. And its municipal airport. (1 like)
“We came, we saw, he died! Ha! Ha! Ha!” (2 likes) Posting this particular quote by Missus Clinton ALWAYS gets deleted. Care to explain that one?
“Retain power at all costs” (quoting a previous comment). You’d almost think Steve was a former Liberal. Oh, wait…
Relax. Read the comments. We’re winning. And these are just the comments that aren’t memory-holed by ICUC. The neocons are in a panic because Russia is exposing this hoax. (3 likes).
I’m no shill…and I do have a brain. I also read the CBC’s reports about CSIS agent Mohammed al-Rashad smuggling teen British girls into Syria to “fight” for “ISIS. And I know about John McCain meeting with al-Baghdadi. And John McCain ISIS selfies. I know “we” have been air dropping supplies and materiel on ISIS positions in Syria. And even giving them a fleet of Toyota pick-up trucks. The Russians have accomplished in Syria what “we” couldn’t do in two years. (2 likes).
Yeah, good luck with that, Steve. And BTW, I donated to Ford’s campaign. I did not (and do not) live in Toronto. Of course, at the time, I didn’t know Ford was a pathological liar and a drug addict and had a personal and family criminal history. I repudiated my previous support of Stephen Harper (circa 2006) and quickly repudiated my support for Ford when I learned I had been had AGAIN. Too bad there are so many simple-minded neocons that just can admit they have been had, too. (1 like).
There are more, Mr. Mansbridge. I would invite you to check out my own website, LettersToTheBeast.com, where, among other things, I post screenshots of my deleted comments. And the number of “likes” before your censors get around to killing them.
And however mistaken you may believe regarding my interpretation of your reporting is, I would like to remind you of two very important facts: In 1990 and 1991, Mr. Mansbridge, you told me that Iraqi soldiers were removing babies from incubators in Kuwaiti hospitals, throwing them on the floor, stealing the incubators and taking them back to Iraq. And in 2003, you told me Saddam Hussein had “weapons of mass destruction.”
Congratulations Hill & Knowlton, the Central Intelligence Agency and the broader U.S. government on the 25th anniversay of “Babies and Incubators
No, sir. It stops here. I’m not buying this crap any longer. You are not going “to sell a war” (with apologies to Lynden MacIntyre) again. And judging by the tone of my fellow commenters, I am not alone in that assessment. And those are just the comments that aren’t “pinked.” It seems a good number of us are there for no other purpose than to call out the bovine excrement. If CBC wants to disable the comments section, go ahead. I don’t care. Watch your web viewership plummet, and the eyes viewing your on-line advertising sink along with it (see the Toronto Sun). And if you think the Liberal government will be your new sugar daddy, I suggest you go to YouTube and look at Julie van Dusen’s temper tantrum with Sheila Copps when Julie felt funding increases to the CBC were unduly insufficient. My memory is a bit hazy after all these years, but I’m pretty sure Copps was a Liberal.
I respectfully suggest you and your corporate / government masters have two choices: we can either spout off on your little comments sections. Or, having had that means of presenting our grievances removed from us and with nothing better to do, we can show up by the hundreds of thousands or millions on Front Street, Bay Street, Wellington Street and Bank Street and make our voices heard that way. The world is coming to two very uncomfortable conclusions: a) the conspiracy kooks were right and; b) they are probably right about a number of other things as well.
This letter touched on just a few of the things that you report and are provably false. Don’t even get me started on September 11, 2001, Sandy Hook (aka Sandy Hoax) and global warming.

Snowfalls are now a thing of the past (The London Independent, March 20, 2000)
I am 46 years old. When I was a schoolboy and my little head was being filled with commies, Rooskies and “nukular bombs,” I couldn’t possibly imagine I would grow up to live in a world where Russia was a free country, the United States was a fascist police state and Canada wasn’t far behind. And I sure wouldn’t have believe Canada would have degenerated into a country where you are free to say anything you want about the government of Canada, but would go to jail for speaking ill of the government of Israel and its agents and lobby overseas.
Feel free to check out this letter on LettersToTheBeast.com where I will supply links to back up every single claim I have made. To put it bluntly: I’m as mad as hell, and I’m not going to take this any more.

Right on, brother! I used to listen to CBC radio all day, and even send email to our local station… until I noted that they stopped reading anything that disputed the official gov’t storyline of any event. Now it irks me to view or hear the laughable ‘news’ spouted by the Canadian propaganda network! The web is the last source of truth, today.
Awesome read: One doesn’t have to be a Rivero’s Ranger either.
I also think its interesting how links documenting these War Crimes vanish.
Thanks, my friend. You are right and are even being nice to the psychopaths that would be our “leaders”. One thing though: don’t give Peter Mansbridge credit for intelligence. At best he’s a good reader, a good parrot who gets a lot of crackers for saying what he’s told to say.
