    Sorry we did this to you, Canada. Do yourselves a favor and don't watch. Show us that you're still the cool country we know you to be.

    At least it's a category 2 station. Trust me, I for one will NOT be watching this one. I don't even like their newspapers...

    What's to like about a "news" channel that is neither objective nor fair?

    I agree. The last thing the world needs is more conservative BS being shoveled around. Not an attack on "conservative values", my focus is on the BS/propaganda end of it. :)

    Maybe you need to reconsider your political position...

    Basing your views on reality is usually the way to go.

    Is this really a 3rd English language source of news??

    Sun Media is wholly-owned by Quebecor, and is no longer the innocent little newspaper it once was.

    :(

    So... your political standing is what exactly- opposition to honest reporting of national and world events, not reporting on events that suit your ideology?

    We should be able to get more US Television here in Canada ... Fox News North will not be the real Fox News.

    The CRTC is the Big Brother everyone can't stand. :cool:

    But you don't fully understand.

    They are only there to protect our culture from the elephant in the room with us.

    Great, just great. Fox has metastasized, and now Canada will get cancer of the news, too.

    Lee not a good argument there. It is not like the other stations are that much better.
    They stop reporting the truth and being honest a long long time ago.
    Now about all you see is more "opinion" based reporting and comentray based reproting.

    Saddest part is I almost find the Daily Showing being money the most honest reporting out there.

    If you're shopping news stations for one that "suit" your particular political positon, then you're part of the problem.

    Cannot compare other stations with Fox. Fox is 24 hours of anti-liberal editorializing without any regard to honest reporting.

    They are not Conservative loonies at all, they use cutting edge broadcast standards combined with classic propaganda techniques to appeal to a narrow swath of viewers who idolize them.

    Fifty years from now people will wonder how this ever happened in america.

    Its obviously not a narrow swath, they have the highest ratings of any of the news channels and the American public is shifting back to the conservatives.

    Saying something is worse than CNN for example is not saying much.

    While Fox is bad the others are not much better. I think you completely missed the point. The media no longer reports the truth. At best we are lucky if 1/4 of the crap they say is true. rest is heavily spun.
