Could CBC get more obvious at this point?
We’ve all seen the obvious pro-Liberal bias at the CBC.
But sometimes, it’s so obvious that even the most ardent CBC defender couldn’t deny it.
And the video below is one of those times when the bias is so in-your-face that it seems like a declaration of total arrogance and contempt for Canadians:
Just as Pierre Poilievre was about to ask Justin Trudeau about confirmed reports that Canadian Military Intelligence warned the Trudeau government about the Coronavirus danger in early January, Barton cut away before Poilievre could even finish the question:
“Watch @CBCNews blatantly cut away as @PierrePoilievre questions @JustinTrudeau on why he ignored coronavirus warnings on China from our military as early as January.”

This is disgusting behaviour from CBC, especially at a time when Canadians have the right to answers from the federal government.
With the Liberals claiming they did “the best they could” in dealing with this crisis, the evidence shows the opposite, as they refused to listen to early warnings, and let thousands of people from China (including virus-epicentre Wuhan) into Canada without any screening or security checks.
And now, with it being confirmed that the military was warning the government in early January, it makes it even more stunning that the government claimed all through January that the ‘risk was low,’ when it was obvious that was not the case.
We are a democratic nation. We have a right to answers, and a right to know how the government failed us. By cutting away from Poilievre’s attempt to get those answers, CBC and Rosemary Barton are hurting the country at a time when we can least afford it.
