What is Citizens' Broadcasting Cooperative?

In an epoch characterized by international criminality and malfeasance perpetrated with impunity by those in the highest echelons of society it is imperative that there exists an objective and uncensored media cooperative to scrutinize such state-sponsored lawlessness.

The mainstream media throughout the world has become infiltrated and compromised by those who have a vested interest in a global war without end. The failure of the media, both public and private, to critically analyze the actions of the global elite and their bought-and-paid-for political spokespersons has compelled ordinary citizens to innovate, organize and attempt to combat this state-sponsored war on truth.

The Citizens' Broadcasting Cooperative represents one front in this global struggle against the psychological war being waged by elites and their political representatives against humanity. We at the Citizens' Broadcasting Cooperative suspect that the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) and its twin, the British Broadcasting Centre (BBC), are being prepared for privatization which we believe is tantamount to theft from those tax payers and global citizens who have funded, sustained and benefitted from public broadcasting historically. The Citizens' Broadcasting Cooperative while having no affiliation with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation does identify with the ground beneath its feet, namely the citizens of Canada for whom the Crown Corporation was founded.

We support public broadcasting. We believe public broadcasting, like public healthcare exemplifies humanity's ability to organize efficiently outside the parameters of the so called 'free market.' We recognize that public broadcasting has historically been a thorn in the side of the elites who have typically had their interests served by private media companies and public relations firms.

The Citizens' Broadcasting Cooperative pledges to its readers and viewers that it will strive to address issues currently ignored by the corporate and public media outlets. We will resist the attempts to dumb down public discourse which has been engendered through celebrity worship, fictional television productions and the pseudo-news coverage by careerist journalists all of which serves to stupefy humanity.

While we have no affiliation with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, in the event that the Crown Corporation is gifted to private interests we vow to take over, reinvent and continue with public broadcasting services. Citizens' Broadcasting Cooperative seeks to fill the vast void that has been created by the narrow topics of choice that have been deemed newsworthy by media outlets in recent history.

The Citizens' Broadcasting Cooperative has NO affiliation with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.

The Citizens' Broadcasting Cooperative is a Canadian based venture comprised of academics, journalists, concerned citizens, students and activists committed to the preservation of public broadcasting, objective journalism, freedom of speech and the observance of truth.

What Caused us to Create Our Own CBC?

The episode that prompted our initiative to reclaim the CBC from those who have stolen it from the Canadian public occurred in Calgary on March 17, 2009. When the former US president entered Canada to speak to an Oil Patch audience, CBC journalists collaborated with police and with their fellow propagandists in the commercial media to cover up the citizens' movement ...
