NEWSFLASH: Andrew Weaver & CBC drop his claim to Nobel fame

One of Andrew Weaver‘s prime cheerleaders over the years has been the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC). With only one previous exception of which I am aware, they’ve never failed to mention – and/or visually feature – his unearned Nobel laurel, which was featured (albeit falsely and grandiosely) in the judgment. To the best of my…

CBC finally drops IPCC-nik Andrew Weaver’s fake Nobel laurel

[Please note UPDATE below -hro] Canada’s National (taxpayer funded) Broadcaster, the CBC has rarely – if ever – missed an opportunity to unquestioningly promote the alarmist “cause” along with its made in Canada green activists and advocates.

CBC and Camp Weaverland vs reality

Mediocre CBC continues its descent

And, strangely enough, one of CBC’s “leading investigative journalists and CBC News’ senior investigative journalist”, Diana Swain,…

Canada’s CBC fails to do its homework … again

Notwithstanding its many claims that, as Canada’s “national broadcaster”, the CBC is an “authoritative” newscaster, in recent years this bureaucratic behemoth, funded at great taxpayer expense – which has rarely been known to fail to trumpet its self-proclaimed “authoritative” newscaster status – has once again demonstrated its true superficial colours.
