If our physical bodies are shaped by what we eat, then just as surely our minds are to be shaped by what we learn. What food is to the body, ideas are to the mind; what greasy gravy fries do to our heart, Canada’s taxpayer-supported “news” broadcaster, the CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation), does to our brain. In small doses, no real harm done perhaps; to pursue a steady diet of such trash, however, so devoid of nutrients, invites a heart attack when confronted by the inevitably harsh demands of reality.
Here’s an example of how the CBC is bad for your health: their report on the appalling pro-Hezbollah marches taking place in Montreal, Quebec, throughout the week. The scandalously neutral headline: "Lebanese-Canadians decry Israel in protests across Canada". "Decry", indeed!!
Now, in fairness, journalists face an undeniable challenge when reporting on a group of people doing anything, let alone a pro-terrorist march; how to edit a mountain of details into a molehill of tidy facts. The CBC tackles the problem by applying a simple filter: eliminate anything that might cause sympathy towards Isreal, and include anything that will justify jew-hatred in general, and Isreal-hatred in particular.

The CBC shamelessly ignores the nazi imagery festooning the protestors signs, it ignores the photos of carnage that little children are parading up and down the streets of Montreal, and instead settles on an innocuous photo identified only as “A man yells over a megaphone during a march through the streets of Montreal on Saturday.”
What is he yelling, that followers with swastikas on their signs and parents who encourage their children to wave signs decorated with maimed babies, would agree to follow him?
The CBC studiously avoids telling us. Who out there believes the “yells” were for both sides to find a way to live amicably, side by side, brother with brother?
This past Tuesday, a small group of protestors, hungry for genuine peace, evidently relying on the CBC for their steady diet of current events programming, showed up to participate at Montreal’s pro-Hezbollah rally. Imagine their surprise when... "Several outraged men confronted the small group pushing and shoving the young women. Several of their signs were destroyed, while other demonstrators said no peace is possible with that “damned people” (Jews) and accused the group of being bought by the “Jews’ money”. The group finally had to leave the demonstration site." [thanks to judeoscope for this eye-witness story]
This is what you get by feeding from the CBC: the naïve CBC viewers are accused of being in league with the very people they came out to protest against, because they don’t hate jews as much as the readers of the koran do. Their signs, “Peace for Lebanon and Israel”, “Make Peace Not War”, are the prototypical signs the CBC love to show as the standard fare for these disgraceful pro-jihadist events; no wonder they expected to blend in as average protestors.
This is the reality that the CBC protects them from, the real taste of these events, the real flavor of rallies for"… critics to make a show of force on the streets," … "We have to continue to talk and continue to express ourselves and say that [the Israeli action] is wrong."
A car in Lebanon? No, Montreal, Quebec, Canada... the kind of news you won't be getting from the dieticians at the CBC.
