...And did you go read the update?
It shows where the misconception of Fox owning sun comes from...hence why I pointed it out.

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
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?
that and please let us enjoy the ball game, we dont care if thats your boy.

Canada is known for their BS reporting, I don't see what the problem is with FOX news. Canadian news broadcasting is a mirror image of their American counterparts.

This is just the CRTC saying what Canadians are not allowed to watch or listen to, as usual.

That's not what the article says:
Canada is known for their BS reporting, I don't see what the problem is with FOX news. Canadian news broadcasting is a mirror image of their American counterparts.But I don't live in Canada so I wouldn't know...
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.

If it had anything to do with "good Canadian values" I wouldn't be hearing my friends talk about some boring junk they seen on Jersey Shore last night...

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.

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."
