After several months (if not years) of absence from 8chan and making cryptic comments about some mysterious new OP I had planned on social media, I've finally managed to gather enough preliminary information to tell you guys what I've been up to.

A QUICK RUNDOWN OF GAMERGATE'S BATTLE WITH THE CBC (CANADIAN BROADCASTING CORPORATION)

Summary of the past four years of drama:

- In November 2014, I filed a complaint with the CBC Ombudsman concerning a news segment they did on GamerGate and eventually went all the way to the CRTC (Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission) to ask them to investigate.

- After the filing of numerous additional complaints about each new hit piece that came out, the CBC Ombudsman eventually decided to unofficially classify me as something akin to a "vexatious complainant" in July 2015 and ignore me from then on, saying that "[their] answer will be the same as it has been in the past". Way to show an open mind and willingness to reevaluate your position in light of new evidence like a proper journalist, Enkin. Pierre Tourangeau, her counterpart at the French-Canadian version of the CBC, Radio-Canada, did something similar to a friend associate of mine Mug33k while essentially accusing him of trying to weaponize the office of the ombudsman.

- December 2015, the CRTC closed GamerGate's case, having coming to the conclusion that the CBC "did not violate their existing regulatory policy framework". However, the director of social and consumer policy, Nanao Kachi, immediately opened a new case on GamerGate's behalf, asking the CBC to address all of the allegations information that I'd submitted to them up until that point in time. The CBC, however, despite numerous pokes and prods over the next two and a half years or so, refused to respond or even acknowledge receipt of the complaint, thus not only snubbing me but also thumbing their nose at the CRTC, which is part of the CANADIAN GOVERNMENT.

Flash forward to February 2018.

After theee years of not being able to give me any definitive answers, one of our caseworkers at the CRTC finally managed to unravel some of the red tape and informed me that the CBC apparently couldn't ignore me indefinitely and would need to address all outstanding complaints by the time their broadcasting license was up for renewal, which, as it turns out, is currently set to expire on August 31, 2019, just a few days after GamerGate's fifth anniversary. In a follow-up e-mail late last week, I was provided with some additional information,. While I haven't had a chance to sit down to read through everything yet, here're a few points of interest so far:

- The proceeding for the CBC's broadcast license renewal will be public (which is unsurprising, considering that the CBC is a crown corporation, i.e. a state-owned enterprise funded by a billion dollars in taxpayer money annually) and likely take place in September 2019.

- Public participation is encouraged, meaning that ordinary Canadian citizens, either as part of a group or as individuals, can submit comments, concerns, complaints, suggestions, etc. in the form of interventions.

- submitting studies, with a probable deadline of mid-July 2019.

- All interventions will be taken into consideration by the CRTC while making their decision.

- An online consultation will be held concerning the proceedings sometime during the Summer of 2019.

- "Balance in news reporting" and "complaints from the public" have been considered important issues in the past

- An "active contribution to the flow and exchange of cultural expression" and "contributing to shared national consciousness and identity" are important to the Canadian Broadcasting Act.

- The CRTC can impose conditions on the CBC for the renewal of their broadcast license.

SUGGESTED PLAN OF ACTION

I think you can see where I'm headed with this: GamerGate should pull out all the stops to make certain that ethics in journalism and the CBC's lack of objective reporting become a VERY central part of next year's broadcast license renewal. ( ° ʖ °)

In short, we conduct an OP in the spirit of Operation Disrespectful Nod by trying to throw the biggest monkey wrench we possibly can into the CBC's operations. Except this time, instead of going after advertising revenue, we use the intervention process in place of an e-mail campaign to raise enough legitimate concerns about the CBC's biased news coverage and underhanded jounalistic tactics to see if we can get the CRTC to force some honesty out of them going forward.

While this may be long shot, we do have two advantages going into this fight:

A. It's highly unlikely that the CBC will be able to attack us directly while all this is going on, as trying to discredit an entire group of Canadians exercising their right of participation in a public proceeding would not go over well with the CRTC since it could be interpreted as the use of intimidation tactics.

B. While at least one of us will have to be brave (or foolish) enough to bite the bullet and attach their real name to an intervention, that document will be posted on the CRTC's website. That means that a public record of the CBC's shameful misconduct towards GamerGate that cannot be spun, blocked, altered, or removed from the Internet by them will be made available for the world to see by the Canadian government.

PREPARATION

Why am I bringing all of this up now when the big battle is still eleven months away? Simple: one of GamerGate's biggest enemies has always been time. Because of their connections behind the scenes, SJWs were able to quickly outmaneuver us during the hashtag movement's early days and successfully sling enough mud at us to make the "harassment" label stick. I want to give us as much of a head start as possible to come up with the most airtight case against the CBC as we possibly can considering what's at stake and the fact that it took five damn years to get to this point.

In addition, we can take advantage of the extra time to brainstorm about other tactics and strategies (something which anons and the chans excel at). While I plan to set up a Discord server for Operation Canadian BaCon II sometime in the next couple of weeks so we can start mobilizing in earnest, here are some thoughts possible approaches to this:

1. TALENT RECRUITMENT: No, I'm not suggesting we go on a membership drive. But since we're a pretty diverse and resourceful bunch, if any of us know (or happen to be) individuals adept at parsing large amounts of information - like, say, media analysts or lawyers - who're willing to lend us their expertise, it would be much easier for us to assemble a case against the CBC. Perhaps we could even submit a study or detailed analysis to help discredit them.

2. COLLECTING EVIDENCE: While I've assembled a fairly comprehensive list of all the news segments that the CBC's done on us - from ones where we were the main subjects to others were gamedropping or just a passing mention occurred - I'm pretty sure that my list probably isn't exhaustive. We need to dig up as much solid dirt on the CBC as possible.

3. DATABASE CREATION: Given the sheer number of hit pieces the CBC's done on us and the fact that there's probably an hour or two's worth of audio and video to sift through by now, it would be to our advantage to create a searchable database so we can quickly narrow in on any quotes or information we need. To this end, we would need to transcribe the various segments (as well as translate them in the case of the Radio-Canada's stuff). As an added bonus, we could then add this information to Acid Man's Official GamerGate Wiki at http://ggwiki.deepfreeze.it/index.php?title=Main_Page when we're done.

4. RAISING AWARENESS: Given the number of SJWs, ideologues, and activists who occupy key positions at the CBC, GamerGate isn't the only entity they've slandered, libeled, defamed, smeared, or misrepresented over the years. And I'm not just talking about Eron Gjoni. What about the Honey Badgers? Or the fact that Ashley Lynch lied about 8chan and Hotwheels twice? Or "The Red Pill" director Cassie Jaye? Hell, I'm pretty sure that Jordan Peterson and Lindsay Shepherd haven't escaped unscathed, either. Since there's power in numbers, I suggest we encourage them and their friends, associates, and fans to participate in our operation by assembling their own dossiers on the CBC's journalistic malfeasance as it pertains to them and submit their testimony as interventions. We'll have a much stronger case if GamerGate isn't the only example of willful misrepresentation out there and we get as any people as possible to participate.

OUTSTANDING AND UNRESOLVED ISSUES

Unfortunately, there are still several unanswered questions and problems that I'm trying to find answers to and/or workarounds for:

i. I'm lacking details about the intervention process (participation requirements, deadlines, etc.) and will be asking the CRTC for more details so we don't waste our time.

ii. Given the propensity of SJW to doxx people and use any personal information they can get their hands on to destroy their opponents' lives, I'm also going to ask about what precautions we can take to safeguard the personal information of participants.

iii. I'm not certain yet if non-Canadians are allowed to participate in these proceedings. While I'm leaning towards "no", considering that GamerGate supporters from outside of the country were successfully able to file complaints against Canadian networks in the past, it's not definitely not outside the realm of possibility. In the worst case scenario, I'm going to see if I can submit statements, documents, etc. on their behalf as part of a group intervention.

iv. What is arguably the highest profile hit piece on GamerGate - a CBC Newsworld segment featuring an interview with Ashley Lynch by Andrew Chang that aired on January 14, 2015 - doesn't exist in a publicly available form anywhere on the Internet. I've looked into the possibility of getting a video copy or transcript of the segment, but the estimates I've gotten so far are pretty damn ridiculous (between 70 and 190 U.S. dollars). I certainly don't have that kind of money to burn and am not keen on the idea of soliciting donations, either. If anyone has any ideas about dealing with this, let me know.

FINAL THOUGHTS (FOR NOW)

At the risk of ending this suggesting OP on a downer note, I should point out that we're playing for all the marbles here. If THIS doesn't accomplish anything, then, short of starting a media watchdog/lobbying group, entering politics myself, or taking the CBC to court - which, even if I had Notch or Palmer Luckey's scratch, I have no idea what I could even sue them for as the mainstream media being blatantly dishonest isn't considered a crime in the absence of provable material damage - there's not much else I can do as I'll have exhausted every single option that I'm acurrently ware of. And, to be honest, considering that I'll have been dealing with this crap for five years straight by the time this is over (which hasn't done my hairline, waistline, personal life, or attempts to get a better career started any favors so far), I think I'm long overdue for a break.

So, I think that's everything. If anyone has any comments, suggests, or things that they'd like me to ask the CRTC when I contact them next week, post them in the thread below.

Here's to giving the CBC a black eye by airing their dirty laundry. :)

How should we communicate? If you're on protonmail send a message to hyattchan.

Have you seen this screenshot about CBC participating in #StopGamergate2014? Do you know if there is an archive or if it is accurate?

Sorry for the late LATE response. Didn't mean to ignore this thread, but we noticed shortly after this thread started that a lot of the CBC links were suddenly dead or broken and have been madly scrambling to download, archive, save, and screenshot everything. We managed to recover 97% of all known material.

The tweet has changed locations because the Twitter user changed his name. It can be found here:

As for the article itself, the original version on CBC's website was somehow linked to Storify and produces a "503 Service Unavailable" error. The only 100% intact and readable mirror of it can be found on Archive.today:

Print this out and hand it to your MP. This is what we're up against, a 30-year-old alliance between AQ's big money backers and the self-appointed "national security experts" in our governments and media who have been recruiting school students directly into Palestine solidarity groups in exchange for jobs in think tanks, foreign investments in their businesses, and "donations" to their families' "charities".

The alliance may be older. Kissinger was doing the same shit in the '70s and Haig had to interfere in 1973 when the Soviets were about to overrun Israel.

Why are the Palestinians always involved? Every single SJW group seems to get co-opted by them into pushing for supporting terrorists. Just look at BLM. No opinion on any other country, including ones that actually keep black slaves; but committed to destroying Israel.

For any anons interested in doing some of their own legal research, a good free resource for Canadian law is CanLII DOT org. "Reasonable apprehension of bias", "Baker v Canada" and "Grant v Torstar Corp" might help you as search terms.

Disclaimer: NOT a lawyer.

I just find it so amusing the rumour that Jian Ghomeshi interviewing Brianna Wu over fake harassment was the last straw for CBC women suffering from his very real harassment. Then he was gone from Q.

Trust the plan.

I saw the Reddit happening thread

https://np.red*dit.com/r/KotakuInAction/comments/a6wlgk/happening_operation_canadian_bacon_ii_gamergate/

How do we contact the people that will be particpating in this?
