Willie-O BS: Is Fox news banned in Canada? (35) RE: BS: Is Fox news banned in Canada? 18 Apr 13


Trust me, we not only have access to Fox News, our own variant "SunTV" on basic cable/satellite (satellite anyway), we also have PLENTY of right-wing blowhard talk radio stations. Sure, we have CBC which, despite rightist whinings to the contrary, actually airs most points of the political compass, short of the extremes at either ends. But privately held media, which certainly outnumbers public broadcasters both in outlets and listeners, is overwhelmingly conservative.

It is interesting and instructive to note that the grand poohbah of SunTV, before he took on that project, was Stephen Harper's mastermind of communications, Kory Teneycke. The rumour probably started because SunTV was nicknamed "Fox News North" by its opponents during its licencing hearings, and it had that one-degree-separation from the Dark Lord. Where the rumour went off the factual rails was that Sun got its licence to broadcast without a whole lot of difficulty.
