We are willing to be lied to by the #1 (cough) ‘news’ network – FOX.
‘The Sun News Network is rubbish media’.
‘The Sun News Network, Canada’s stab at a right-wing slanted channel like America’s Fox ‘News,’ is going out of business after just a few years’.
‘The reason for its demise will surely be bittersweet for conservatives and lovers of free market capitalism: Nobody was watching, and so it failed’.
Sun News Network shuts down Last 5 Minutes – (4:00 AM CST, February 13, 2015)
“The closure is regrettable for the Canadian broadcasting system, which is losing a distinctively Canadian voice in the national news space,” said Tremblay’.
‘The distinctively Canadian voice was one of conservative spin. The idea of a 24-hour right-wing propaganda channel may be massively popular in the United States, but Canadians seem to have little interest in watching their political discourse further muddied with the kind of ugly programming Americans have grown depressingly accustomed to’.
‘To counter the lack of interest, Sun Media tried to force the channel down Canada’s throat by demanding that the government make the channel a mandatory feature of every basic cable package for consumers’.
‘The CRTC, Canada’s telecommunications regulators, didn’t bite’.
‘The agency rejected the proposal and with that Sun News Network’s days were numbered. Sun News was livid by the decision not to cater to them, but most average Canadians shrugged’.
‘One of the channel’s fiercest critics was Alexander Knight, who in 2013 took to the streets to ask Canadians about whether they wanted Sun News. Most said no’.
