Politics, Re-Spun: While Canada’s Free Press Gets Beheaded…

When one corporation owns most of the English language newspapers in Canada, the free press is essentially dead, not that it’s been much of anything but comatose for a while.

Switch to non-corporate media:

Worried that the PostMedia buy out of Sun News means you won’t have any options for news? Here’s a handy . . . → Read More: Politics, Re-Spun: While Canada’s Free Press Gets Beheaded…

Alberta Diary: Sun Media – not its squalid commentator Ezra Levant – is the problem

Ezra Levant, on the job with his Sun News microphone. Mr. Levant is not the problem. Sun Media is the problem. Below: Justin Trudeau, Bernie Farber, and Brian Mulroney.

Ezra Levant is a squalid nuisance, barely worth contemplating.

Sun Media is the problem.

On Monday, Sun Media apologized for Mr. Levant’s repellent and . . . → Read More: Alberta Diary: Sun Media – not its squalid commentator Ezra Levant – is the problem

The Ranting Canadian: Hooray!  Sun News Network (SNN), aka Scum “News" lost…

Hooray! Sun News Network (SNN), aka Scum “News” lost their hypocritical bid to force all Canadian cable TV viewers to pay for their shitty channel regardless of whether we want to watch it.

The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) correctly declined to award special treatment to the undeserving TV station . . . → Read More: The Ranting Canadian: Hooray!  Sun News Network (SNN), aka Scum “News" lost…

Impolitical: Questions for Quebecor

From Gérald Fillion earlier this week in response to Quebecor’s public campaign against the Bell acquisition of Astral: En fait, il faut poser beaucoup de questions sur la transaction BCE-Astral qui donnera un avantage concurrentiel exceptionnel à BCE. Mais on doit aussi poser des questions à Quebecor aujourd’hui, qui lance publiquement une charge contre ses . . . → Read More: Impolitical: Questions for Quebecor

DeSmogBlog: Friends with Benefits: The Harper Government, EthicalOil.org and Sun Media Connection

suntv_news.gif

Just over a week before the Northern Gateway Pipeline hearings began, EthicalOil.org and its allies launched a pre-emptive PR offensive on environmental and First Nations groups who oppose the pipeline. Their new website, OurDecision.ca, and ad campaign are an attempt to invalidate opposition to the pipeline by pointing to the small . . . → Read More: DeSmogBlog: Friends with Benefits: The Harper Government, EthicalOil.org and Sun Media Connection

David Climenhaga's Alberta Diary: They said WHAT? What is to be done about Sun Media?

Sun Media: Not your father’s unbiased journalism. Note the ad at the bottom of the page. Below: The Super Snipe. What a car! So buy one from another dealer; more irresponsible innuendo, juxtaposition in a Sun Media paper.

On New Year’s Eve, without justification or evidence, Sun Media newspapers published a column that called Calgary . . . → Read More: David Climenhaga’s Alberta Diary: They said WHAT? What is to be done about Sun Media?

Quebecor And RLQ’s Chou-Chou, Eric Duhaime Has Hit a New Low–Enough With The Canadian Arrogant Complacency!

Yes, that would be the same Eric Duhaime, the one who begged the feds, not once, but twice, to somehow intervene in the construction scandal woes in la Belle province, a problem that dates decades that needs systemic changes that not even the feds can touch. That same scandal that ol’ Chrissie Paradis . . . → Read More: Quebecor And RLQ’s Chou-Chou, Eric Duhaime Has Hit a New Low–Enough With The Canadian Arrogant Complacency! . . . → Read More: Quebecor And RLQ’s Chou-Chou, Eric Duhaime Has Hit a New Low–Enough With The Canadian Arrogant Complacency!

Quebecor Paranoia Grows-Demands CBC-Rado Canada To Remove Certain Offending Portions From Web Site

Not long ago, Jymn covered the CBC, coming armed with certain facts about Quebecor. A few things Quebecor won’t tell us. Let’s refresh our memories, here.

Quebecor has received more than half a billion dollars in direct and indirect subsidies and benefits from Canadian taxpayers over the past three years, yet it is not . . . → Read More: Quebecor Paranoia Grows-Demands CBC-Rado Canada To Remove Certain Offending Portions From Web Site . . . → Read More: Quebecor Paranoia Grows-Demands CBC-Rado Canada To Remove Certain Offending Portions From Web Site

Poor Pierre Karl Peladeau. Playing the victim again. Paranoid, too.

Most likely spurred by the facts presented by the CBC about Quebecor’s welfare habit, the media chain’s chief came out firing today against the ‘state broadcaster’. Problem is, Peladeau came off wimpy and whiny, somehow befitting a news chain known for its self victimization and pouting. Not only that, there was a whiff of paranoia . . . → Read More: Poor Pierre Karl Peladeau. Playing the victim again. Paranoid, too. . . . → Read More: Poor Pierre Karl Peladeau.

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.

Trouble In Pequiste Paradise–This Time Over That White Elephant For a Non-Existent NHL Franchise

I always knew this would happen eventually.
