Canadians Ban Fox News Channel

TOO FUNNY!

Fox News will not be moving into Canada after all! The reason: Canadian regulators announced last week they would reject efforts by Canada’s right-wing Prime Minister, Stephen Harper, to repeal a law that forbids lying on broadcast news.
Canada’s Radio Act requires that “a licenser may not broadcast … any false or misleading news.” The provision has kept Fox News and right-wing talk radio out of Canada and helped make Canada a model for liberal democracy and freedom. As a result of that law, Canadians enjoy high quality news coverage, including the kind of foreign affairs and investigative journalism that flourished in this country before Ronald Reagan abolished the “Fairness Doctrine” in 1987.

Political dialogue in Canada is marked by civility, modesty, honesty, collegiality, and idealism that have pretty much disappeared on the US airwaves. When Stephen Harper moved to abolish the anti-lying provision of the Radio Act, Canadians rose up to oppose him fearing that their tradition of honest non-partisan news would be replaced by the toxic, overtly partisan, biased and dishonest news coverage familiar to American citizens who listen to Fox News and talk radio. Harper’s proposal was timed to facilitate the launch of a new right-wing network, “Sun TV News” which Canadians call “Fox News North.”
Something like this would never happen in the US because the people in Washington work for the corporations, not for the good of the country but, again, it’s nice to know sanity still exists somewhere in the world.
Congratulations Canada!

So the summary of the article is basically that they worry that they will lose their liberal leaning values and are now implementing north korean like tactics to block out things they dont approve of. Sounds like a wonderful place

They aren't implementing anything. It's been the law for years. Fox, an American company, wants to criticize Canadians for making decisions for themselves. Seems to me they are exercising their liberties better than we are.

Last time I checked government approved news sources that are not critical of what you are trying to do is only implemented in Communist/socalist/dictatorships.

You know who else limits what news sources you can access Cuba, China, North Korea, Iran, the USSR did ect.

Liberty would be to have it and not watch it. Its not a liberty when you dont have a choice comrade

Apparently you guys have never been outside of the US. America is more liberal (little "L") than most of the world. This kind of thing is common in Canada, England, France, etc. The US is the exception, not the rule. I guess we could invade Canada to change it, if you are that upset about it. But I believe they are a sovereign country and can do whatever they want, short of that.

FOX News has been banned in Canada for at least 2 years. This is fall out from all the shit news of the The Five and Glenn Beck bullshit.

Canada has laws that "News stories" must be factual and not misleading.

Of course we have more freedoms than the rest of the world and the world is nothing like us. And yes a country can do whatever they want.

But trying to call it liberty by being dishonest and trying to shelter their populations to not be critical of their governments is a joke. Its just one of the tatics their liberal (big L) governments use to stay in power and why citizens like in Greece get blind sided when everything falls apart.

It's liberty because the Canadians don't stand for foreign corporations coming into their country and stripping away a law the Canadian voters have obviously been fine with for decades. The law doesn't say you can't speak the truth. It says you can't lie and try to pass it off as the truth.

So what your saying is that youre banned from Canada since you cant lie and try to pass it off as the truth?

The Canadian people didnt vote on the law. Theres no liberty about it. Liberty would be them having it and it doing so poorly the company pulled out. Their government is blocking it not the people. For the second time liberty is dependent on choices, when the choice is made for you it has nothing to do with liberty

Apparently you dont understand how censoring news works. Its works because people dont know the truth. The sheltering keeps their liberal party in power, and if thats all they disagreed with for that person they would still vote for them.

Unlike you and Obama, rational people dont agree with every decision the people they voted for make.

Obviously you don't understand how Parliaments work. You can't have a Conservative Prime Minister if the "liberal party is in power."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parliament_of_Canada

Once again, you don't understand how Parliaments work. The Prime Minister's own Party didn't support the change, or it would have happened.

They arent, but they are the only ones trying to demonize them while happily accepting their money. If they had such a problem with them they should say thanks but no thanks i dont want money from you. Otherwise its all just bs to manipulate people to vote for you.

Wall St is kind of a necessary evil to prevent a huge collapse but yes it is and I was never for bailing out GM and the auto plants.

You can protest if you want, but when your message is you want all debt removed and you just do a bunch of drugs and rape people you look like a joke. Not all protest is good protest and like they have the right to do it I have the right to criticize it.

Let me be clear,,,neither side is representing the American people, but the right wing special interest groups have created a bunch of middle class attack dogs to defend the wealthiest Americans and THEIR interests,,,

I see no benefit for the average American by having their taxes raised, policies that hinder business expansion which means more jobs, running up a massive unpayable debt, and getting them to believe the are entitled to have things given to them.

Im not all of them, this is the first time youve actually asked me that. I also have no agenda I call things as I see it.

Romney is my choice as he has the best chance to win. He gets blasted for being to liberal in the primaries but that doesnt matter in the general election since Obama is was left of him on everything. If somehow Santorum or Huntsman won theyd have my vote too. Paul I dunno who Id vote for that guy is a lunatic. He has some good ideas but takes them WAY to far. Might have to go for Gary Johnson if that happened but its highly unlikely.

Christie would be my choice if he was running but hes not so it doesnt really matter.

Id ask who you were voting for but obviously your an Obama man

I think Romney has a good shot of being able to win it. Definitely the best shot out of the group. Huntsman has good ideas but hes terrible with the mic and you have to be at least likeable during a speech to win.

Theres things about Romney im not thrilled with but I also understand that some of it may have just been the state he was running. You have to make concessions to be elected as a republican in that state.

I dont see the point in throwing support to candidates that cant win it all like some people are doing but on the bright side getting the attack ads now will make people not care about them come November as they will be old news.

The whole liberal conservative debate is getting old people. They are both just as corrupt.

The bottom line is NEWS is NOT an opinion and should be fact. Why would you allow something to be call fact(News) knowing its a lie.

Fact is fact and we should not allow manipulating the public for other peoples gain. Just because they can afford to call their opinion News, doesn't make it fact which doesn't make it news.

Simple,

Time to get you old people out of office and bring in people who respect each other and the planet(which provides us with everything)

I don't even think Fox News is as conservative as it was 10 years ago. They often use the some lexicon and narratives as the MSM news.

The main thing Fox does differently is simply report a few more stories that are considered "pro conservative" which the MSM omits

Its actually sad that the Canadian government thinks its own people are to stupid to make a simple choice of which news station to watch. As someone pointed out earlier they still have access to the internet.

I would say that MSNBC does not hide its bias at all - just look at much of the previous special election coverage. Fox invites democratic spokespeople and operatives on its show. MSNBC makes no attempt.

I will not even mention the number of times that MSNBC anchors have been suspended or reprimanded for outlandish statements - Olberman and Ed Schultz.

So MSNBC regulars Mike Murphy (GOP strategist),
Michael Steele (former RNC Chair), Pat Buchanan
(until recently), Steve Schmidt (McCain's '08 campaign
manager), just to name a few, don't provide an opposing
POV?

At least MSNBC has standards for the behavior of its talent.
I consider FAUX's lack of suspensions & reprimands far
more damning.

I do not hear very many racially or bigoted statements on Fox. Ed Schultz launches them - weekly.

What special elections? I watch MSNBC and
I see GOP guys & gals on-air all the time.

Other than that "right-wing slut" comment about
Ingram, what has Schultz said that's raicist or
bigoted? I'm not a fan of the guy & don't watch
is show, but I'm wondering...

Also, Olbermann was suspended for making undisclosed
political contributions, not conduct.

What kind of pussy uses multiple registered names to bolster his argument?

Are all Obamaniacs as big a pussy as you or do you hold some sort of biggest pussy award?
