To be honest, I thought it was quite clear.

Sauron called sun news a doppelganger of Fox news (I read that as identical) so I pointed out that they aren't by quoting the op sources update where they point out the mistake.

Holy... Ok now I see it.

I just quoted the 2 next to each other to point out how incorrect you were.

I ended up pointing out how incorrect I was. So I guess you were arguing the correct thing after all, but I will still say there was nothing obvious or apparent about it. It is worded confusingly in my opinion.

Sorry for wasting every ones time trying to look smart, only to look dumb. And again it was nothing personal just misunderstood what you were saying.

Politicians saying you what you can hear and what you can't. How can it be good?
Do you like RT? What if they are next? What about ATS live broadcast ban in few years?
I'm not sure about this but It could always suck more!

...And did you go read the update?

It shows where the misconception of Fox owning sun comes from...hence why I pointed it out.


Ok I see you've caught up


You had me wondering if I had lost my mind for a moment there!

Yes I read the comments and update before I ever posted anything. That is why I was trying to point it out to you in the first place. I apologized already and admitted I was totally wrong.

I think people are more aware of Robert Murdoch and the absolute falsehood and bias of fox news. We are just hoping bad things will happen to them for all the bad things they caused by representing a fairytale too often marketed to sell an enemy of truth, over and over again. They are no longer a viable news organization. You can only say "go team" so many times before people start asking you to please keep OPINION to yourself when "informing" people. that and please let us enjoy the ball game, we dont care if thats your boy. lol

Just out of curiousity who is "your boy" and who do you turn to for your news? Not implying you are wrong in your statements I am just wondering if you extend this opinion to other news networks or only Fox?

I have actually not used a television set for news in longer than I can remember. Where I can, I turn to people with direct experience. If not I look to many "news" organizations and try and get both sides of a story. I dont think any now a days can actually have an unbiased view since they are pretty much bought and paid for by the people the news is about.

That´s why it is important to search exhaustively the more important the issue is so as to not sleep in the bed of lies they make. Some people like to be tucked in and have a bed time story told to them before going off to sleep. I like to "lie awake on the floor" if need be. lol. no, but really. I tend to try and read between the lines. I figure that TPTB have to communicate to each other within those lies, so I learn their language and read their memos.

Trends like for example the current ones flooding even the recent posts here on ATS are indicative of the message they try and send. I take that and reverse engineer the truth from it. Like if someone keeps talking to me while giving me change after buying a beer, I stop, count my change and then continue the conversation. just an example.

If you try and tell me how great something is, I ask who are you, what is to you, and how bad is really. I am a SKEPTIC. I think that pays off far more than just accepting things being shoved down my throat.

My boy is me and my people, my nation, my community, etc. The rest just hold in trust, our trust.

Dear casenately,

Please forgive me if I have misunderstood your post, but it seems to be saying two things (maybe three):

Fox News is bad, we want them hurt.

What makes them bad is that they interject opinion into their programming.

that and please let us enjoy the ball game, we dont care if thats your boy.
Are you talking about a real sporting event? The political race? The official establishment story? Are you saying Fox News is my boy? If the latter, may I mention that I haven't seen Fox on TV for at least two years?

My point in all of this, and it seems kind of flat now, is that Fox was "lynched" in this thread. Go ahead, it's fine not to like Fox, I don't think about them myself, but we should try to be above that. We should get facts, then use our passion to build on those facts, not create facts because of our passion.

With respect,
Charles1952

Hardly. We have a bit more investigations. For example HAARP and the patents held for far more powerful equipment The depeleted uranium spent ammunition dumped off the coasts in prime fishing water by the tons and the Navy claiming its safe, but when asked to haul it out, oh, its too dangerous for that. We tend to get more new than the US.

News isn't considered entertainment by our courts, but could be argued as a constitutional right to truth.

Actually that is a liberal blog and they are spewing BS. Man I hate the way our political system is evolving. We might as well change our name to America North.

That's not what the article says:

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.
But I don't live in Canada so I wouldn't know...



You see? Right there......they just lied.

second

well, I dont know if they are definitively good or bad. I just have been lied to too many times to even give them more than a mild once over. They just regurgitate news on a schedule so anything worth sharing I usually heard it already a couple days before, or at least a couple hours.

I dont want them hurt. The common sentiment amongst people like me is that they do more harm than good, and we want that to end. So if by hurt you mean "shutdown" then yes. Actual harm. no.

and the sports thing is more of a metaphor for their bias for candidates, version of events, etc. They chose one side and go insane over their choice. They banter, walk out on conversations, avoid questions, disrespect people who differ in opinion, shut people up, etc. They are like crazy parents at a ball game insulting the rest of the parents who just want to see how it goes.

Ever have someone like that behind you or in front. They go ape %*it over the whole time there and ruin it for everyone else. They give journalism a bad name.

you are correct in saying it is better to use logic over passion. I think it is better to not lose touch with that passion though since it can be a great ally in times of adversity, and a reason for continued excellence in times of peace.

I am very human and as enlightened as I would like to be, I would not like to become disconnected with this world and the real relationship our hearts play out in it. I listen to my heart, not my brain. Both can be fooled, but one will outlast the lies.

thank you for being cordial. Have a great day!

actually if you read the blog source of this article it does not actually relate to fox news and the blooger appologises for the misleading post (which he himself did not write).

Jersy shore="Good Canadian values"... Those aren't even considered good values here in America, and that says alot. But it is popular with the mental midget crowd.

Fox News Channel is currently offered by Access Communications, Bell TV, Cogeco, Eastlink, Manitoba Telecom Services, Rogers, SaskTel, Shaw Cable, Shaw Direct and Telus TV. A notable exception is Vidéotron, Canada’s third largest cable company, which has not added Fox News Channel to its lineup.

I don’t know if the individual who put up this post was aware of the above information — I would say not — but though the article says an application was approved to bring Fox News to Canada, despite some quick research, I do not get the impression that Fox News has a channel broadcast from Canada, staffed with Canadians, aimed at Canadians. Far as I can tell, the Fox News seen in Canada is the Fox News produced out of New York City, and it is the same version we see here in the states. So, again, far as I can tell, Fox still hasn’t been granted permission to produce a separate, Canadian-centered news show in Canada.


We get Fox ( and CNN, MSNBC ) from the US, we just don't have Fox Canadian.



You just popped the OP liberal bubble that Fox News is not in Canada.


I think they are miserable again. Fox News is everywhere.

something we all suspected, eh?

Canada’s Radio Act requires that “a licenser may not broadcast … any false or misleading news.”

from the article:
"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."

sweet victory.

Hoping for a liberal monologue?


Don't forget the satellite radio stations.

Canadians can also listen to Rush Limbaugh and find the truth thru his website.

I cannot believe this thread it at 4 pages of replies now...

And as I stated on page 2, after the statements made by Charles1952 ON PAGE 1 (which schooled me and made me want to eat my angry thoughts towards him) that the CRTC Never RULED ANYTHING.

SUN NEWS TV is owned by Quebecor Media Inc. which has absolutely NOTHING to do with Fox News. Indeed using the term "Fox" is just a generalization and Sun News TV Launched April 18th, 2011 under a category 2 licence. All they had wanted was a category 1 licence for mandatory access to all satellite/cable providers but they aborted the case after PUBLIC BACKLASH, not because the CRTC said NO. (my sources are on my post near the end of page 2)

Edit: And if you are interested, its 9:30 AM MT and on channel 177 on the Shaw digital receiver, Charles Adler is spewing some pro-Harper, pro- keystone, BS right now.

Good. It's better for socialism to keep foreign correspondence out. I remember how we all used to talk about the Pravda and how Russia had only one media and it was State propaganda. So now Canada can just choose more online propaganda like Huffpo or Daily Kos or msnbc.

And was it too much competition for Canada Free Press?
