BIAS: State Broadcaster CBC Has Given Kamala Harris Nearly Four Times As Much Coverage As Leslyn Lewis

Why are we paying for a ‘Canadian’ network that covers America far more?

In recent days, I’ve noticed many people talking about how it seems CBC is giving way more coverage to Joe Biden’s VP pick Kamala Harris than they are to Canadian Conservative leadership contender Dr. Leslyn Lewis.

So, I took a quick look at the entries on CBC to see if there was a big difference.

There was.

Huge in fact.

Searching on CBC.ca shows 239 results for Leslyn Lewis in the news section.

The same search for Kamala Harris yields 847 results.

Now, some would argue that Kamala Harris has been a US senator for a few years, so there would be more entries. However, that would only make sense if CBC was an American news website.

For example, searching for the other US senator in California, Dianne Feinstein, yields just 113 results.

This means the majority of Kamala Harris’ CBC coverage has come in the narrow window when she ran for the Democratic nomination, and then was picked by Biden to be his running mate.

In that same general time period, Dr. Leslyn Lewis has been running for the Conservative leadership race. Additionally, Lewis had run for MP in previous elections.

What this proves is that CBC has indeed been giving far more coverage to American politician Kamala Harris than they have to Canadian politician Leslyn Lewis.

Making this even worse is that much of the CBC coverage of Harris has centred around her ‘historic’ spot as Biden’t VP pick, while ignoring Leslyn Lewis making history with her run for the Conservatives.

In fact, as pointed out by @Lumberist on Twitter, the results are even worse if you include all stories, not just the news section. That shows CBC with 1467 entries on Kamala Harris, compared to 262 for Leslyn Lewis:

In short, CBC forces us to give them our tax dollars, claims to be a ‘Canadian’ network, and then uses our money to cover American politicians while giving far less coverage to prominent Conservative Canadian politicians.

It’s yet another reason why CBC – which has morphed from a public broadcaster into a Liberal-controlled State Broadcaster – needs to be defunded.

The CBC is blatantly racist and is simply a Media tool for Trudeau. He deliberately has attention diverted away from anything non-Liberal.

CBC is leftist station,and Trump does not beat around the bush.You are two face.Don’t like to hear the truth.

Bill Boskwick

Perhaps the CRTC might have something to say on this..It would be interesting to hear their comments, if any. I suiggest that they cannot remain silent when our country’s “flagship media” appears to be pushing a slanted perspective on politics…

Now who owns the C.B.C. building?? It is definitely NOT us Tax the Tax Payers of Canada?? The Turd in the Punch Bowl acts as if the $$$$ he is handing out is his. The C.B.C. building and the C.E.R.B. is owned by the Tax the Tax Payers of Canada. Any Media that does NOT see this is NOT just delusional or delusional at best, BUTT Insane and or Corrupt. Just saying.

CBC definitely needs to have its funding reduced, but not defunded. There are rural areas where the only Canadian news they hear and see is CBC radio, and CBC TV. The majority of Canadians want to see a refocus on Canadian news and special features, which they can be very good at; but not a political mouthpiece for the political party in power at the time.

CBC MUST be Defunded! The Conservative Party will make sure that rural areas will get the news. With the CBC being a Paid Out Liberal Mouthpiece, All Canadians have been getting NOTHING but Lies from the CBC for the last five years.

Defunding all the so-called Canadian tax paid news media outlets, that collaborate with the left, liberal/ndp/green Parties Canadian and USA is a must if we want to protect North America from their sickening agenda’s and lies.
Please I hope the Conservatives do not go this far left as the bought out media’s few articles keeps implying they will, in the leadership vote taking place now.

If we had a vote for Harris it might be of interest but we don’t. WE HAVE NO SAY IN THE U S ELECTION WHATSOEVER.

How sad is this – I wish we would get the kind of coverage for or political wanna be’s that the U.S. gives theirs – right – wrong or indifferent – minus the BS that they spew – some good in depth reporting on the candidates – where they stand on issues etc. We should defund the CBC and let them stand on their own and if the can survive on their own that would be good – if not – so be it – they do some really good stuff but when it comes to covering the political arena… Read more »
