Should the CBC stop being funded by the gov't?

yes, defund and allow them to function as they exist with commercial revenues/fund-drives, or adapt, or fail

same as ctv, global, newspapers, radio and anyone else who fed at the federal $600 million trough
we are without any honest, untainted main-stream media in canada, everything is the same foundational message/script

same as in the usa:

Why would we have investigative journalists if the masters will quash any story that harms the bottom line .All the pretty faces and silky speakers and wormy writers all jump to the same tune like a puppet being controlled by a marionette . In our case the marionette is the Liberal Party. There is no longer any in depth reporting on any issue detrimental to left wing causes . Sickening .

Wow, who's doing the fact checking here? I'd really like to see what was said by petros and BOOMer. 'Disputed' doesn't mean 'wrong', it means there's disagreement. And what "official sources" exactly are we talking about, the govt?

The self serving CBC bureaucracy and pay scale like all government departments is what does them in. I don't mind CBC radio but as far as original programing for tv for the most part is beyond their mandate imo. Can't see them surviving as a private company unless it is beautifully setup like NavCanada with no debt and so forth.

They could try going public and get pounded into reform but that has not been the historical Liberal way

I'm of the opinion that CBC needs to have a different funding model than it currently has.

Anyone else agree or have ideas how?

I do think it's important to have CANCON but I think legal broadcasting laws would take care of that.

Thoughts?
They need to be removed from the public tit and left to raise funding on their own.
