Yea CANADA!!!

Regulators Reject Proposal That Would Bring Fox-Style News to Canada



Quote:
As America's middle class battles for its survival on the Wisconsin barricades -- against various Koch Oil surrogates and the corporate toadies at Fox News -- fans of enlightenment, democracy and justice can take comfort from a significant victory north of Wisconsin border. Fox News will not be moving into Canada after all! The reason: Canada 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.

XD woo canada!

In all seriousness though, I wish the USA would pass a law like that. Not that they will, lying SOS's that they are. :/ It's like when kids lie to their parents, they would probably have said yes anyways, but you lie because its easier than broaching a potentially difficult topic. Might be time for Americas leaders to grow up. :P

Over due.

A real newspaper prints a retraction when they error. Fox just tells another lie.

Lie or otherwise, they have a right to spout their dribble. People listen which further cements that right. I fear for a society where my government has anything to do with what I say or hear.

Next thing you know they are going to tell me what to put in my body.

As an op-ed or opinion piece I agree but a lie under the guise of being news is a clear cut deception.

Nothing complicated or over bearing about requiring a network to tell the truth.

They're all lawyers living in a gated compound in Topeka. I suspect that compound is armed to the teeth.
