bastard.logic: Jacked from the 140 (Because sometimes that’s all you need)

Fox News North’s @kinsellawarren puts down his 30 pieces of silver to spank @fernhilldammit for consorting w/ teh enemy is.gd/zoW25t — Matthew Elliot (@matttbastard) April 9, 2012 Seriously, dub tee eff?

Rebekah Brooks busted again. When are they coming for the Murdochs?

The Murdoch scandal keeps growing and evolving into an epic HBO movie. So far, the people at the very, very top – James and Rupert Murdoch to be exact – have remained relatively unscathed. That’s to be expected. This dynamic duo is too smart and too rich to be caught. They have people like Brooks ...

James Moore should apologize to Sun News’ Kris Sims

“Hi, I’m Kris Sims. I used to be a journalist.” He called her a “pawn” of QMI and Pierre Karl Peladeau. He should have called her a pawn of the Conservatives. Sims is not so much an agent provocateur of state broadcaster Sun News as she is a compatriot of Moore’s. They belong to the ...

A peek at Canada’s Conservative media monopoly

If you ever want a glimpse of just how far right 90 percent of our media has become, look no further than National Newswatch. It’s all encapsulated there. For example, take a look a today’s “Featured Ink” column. Notice anything particular? All but one article referenced are from Conservative media, QMI in particular. One is ...

QMI news flash: Sunshine Girl graduates to cover of Hustler.

I find it first of all to be a strange bit of braggadocio from the ever serious news organization that is Sun Media. But it’s the comments from the Sunshine Girl about her imminent Hustler cover spread that give the whole thing that touch of class this breaking bit of news so needed. Although Hustler ...

Good to see CBC fighting back against Quebecor’s petty attacks

You want to piss off a Conservative, come armed with facts (emphasis mine). What Quebecor won’t tell you about its attacks on the public broadcaster  For more than three years, Quebecor has been using its newspapers, and more recently, its SunNews Network TV license to pursue a campaign against CBC/Radio-Canada. But there are some things Quebecor ...

Impolitical: Polling on the CBC’s budget

This just looks like plain old seeding of the ground for CBC budget cuts. A poll conducted by Abacus Data for QMI news agency appears in their pages today. QMI are no friends of the CBC, they have pursued thousands of access to information requests from the CBC relentlessly since the Conservatives made that change ...

bastard.logic: Ezra Levant Is Ethically Outraged Over Jack Layton’s Final Farewell

by matttbastard In the midst of his double-fainting couch freakout over Jack Layton’s outrageously socialist state funeral, flesh & blood cartoon QMI columnist Ezra Levant claims the late NDP leader “clearly did not meet the standard of a state funeral” because he was “a hyper-partisan politician whose largest achievement was becoming the leader of the ...

Another blow for Sun News Network. Loses preferred access to more than three million Canadian TV screens.

While QMI outlets like to brag about how Fox News North (AKA Sun News Network) is ‘smoking‘ its news rivals, things aren’t looking so rosy for the right wing propaganda channel. This October, the network will lose its over the air free access; it will only be seen by those subscribers whose cable company has a deal ...

Another blow for Fox News North. Loses preferred access to more than three million Canadian TV screens.

While QMI outlets brag about Fox News North’s ‘walloping’ of its news rivals on certain days, things aren’t looking so rosy for the right wing propaganda channel in future days. This October, the network will lose its free access; it will only be seen by those subscribers whose cable company has a deal in place ...

Scott's DiaTribes: Sunmedia’s business model – attack the CBC

A brief observation: Wherever I turn, whether it be Ezra Levant’s raving on in the Sun tabloids, or Brian Lilley on SunTv, or even David Akin on Twitter questioning CBC policy or standards (which I find amusing by the way – since it’s David’s news organization who withdrew from the Ontario Press Council so that ...
