In an epoch characterized by international criminality and malfeasance perpetrated
with impunity by those in the highest echelons of society it is imperative that

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

which has been engendered through celebrity worship, fictional television productions
and the pseudo-news coverage by careerist journalists all of which serves to

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
The Citizens’ Broadcasting Cooperative is a Canadian based venture comprised
of academics, journalists, concerned citizens, students and activists committed
