Elon Musk adds Twitter label to CBC: "69% government funded"

CBC news has suspended its activity on Twitter in protest at being labeled "...government funded." A report surfaced that 70% of CBCs funds comes from the Canadian Government. Elon Musk has recently been adding "government funded" labels to Western media organizations including the BBC and the ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation). CBCs state funding is controversial in Canada because many Canadians view CBC as having a pro Liberal Party and left wing bias in its coverage. Pierre Poilievre, Canada's leader of the opposition Conservative Party sent a letter to Twitter headquarters asking for the "government funded" label for CBC. Right wing pundits on Twitter have been cheering the move by Elon Musk.
