A. Picazo: A Circus On The Levant

“Being a Jew isn’t like being Black or being gay or being a woman, or even Israeli where many Jews come from. Being a Jew is a choice, like being a Blood or Crip. Jews are the medieval prototype of the Occupy Wall Street movement; a shiftless group of hobo’s that doesn’t believe in property ...

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 amount of American ...

Exclusive! Brian Lilley’s audition reel for Sun TV News.

Jymn’s half-assed Predictions for 2012

Occupy will stay underground and grow its infrastructure and goals. More and more organizations and individuals will pledge allegiance to the movement. The media will interpret this lack of visibility to the failure of Occupy and continue to treat supporters as dirty fucking hippies. The year of Occupy will have to wait until . . ...

Brian Lilley: "Tough year for state broadcaster"

Brian Lilley reads prepared remarks from Conservative party while Krista Erickson ponders the good ol’ days Judging by Lilley’s employer’s ratings, I’d say his statement is more than a little ironic, especially when you consider that Sun TV News serves at the exclusive pleasure of the ruling Conservative party. Plus, its ratings are in the ...

LFR’s half-assed predictions for 2012

Occupy will stay underground and grow its infrastructure and goals. More and more organizations and individuals will pledge allegiance to the movement. The media will interpret this lack of visibility to the failure of Occupy and continue to treat supporters as dirty fucking hippies. The year of Occupy will have to wait until 2013. Instead of ...

Sun Media giddy over sale of Leafs to Rogers/Bell juggernaut

Must admit that this purchase by the media overlords of the ‘gang of seven’, Bell (TSN) and Rogers (Sportsnet), doesn’t auger well for CBC’s Hockey Night in Canada, a broadcast almost synonymous with the Toronto Maple Leafs. Count on snickers and giggles from the staff of Sun TV News (aka Fox News North) in the ...

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 accountable to ...

And Now, Introducing the Witness for The Harpercon Prosecution, Fox News North!

Boys ‘n’ girls, the Harpercons want to hold a parliamentary hearing regarding the future of the CBC, basically. And  guess who their star witnesses will be? Yup! You guessed it! Pierre-Karl Peladeau, Ezzy Levant, and of course, king McCarthyist of the CBC watch, Brian Lilley-white.  Oh yeah! Like they’re going to reliable, impartial witnesses! Even ...

The Onion comes to Canada. Sun’s Mark Bonokoski on Jack Layton.

I’m stealing this directly from Dan Gardner. It’s too perfect to leave on the Twitter floor. This video defines ‘blowhard’ – Mark Bonokoski in a jealous rage over the attention given to Jack Layton on his passing. These guys just can’t stand a lefty taking up media space they feel they alone deserve to occupy. It’s driving. them. insane. P.S. A bit ...

Michael Coren: “It’s not about race. It’s about culture”. Bullshit.

Dawg posted a video tonight I wish I had never seen. No, not a clip from the latest slasher flick. Worse. Michael Coren, using the meme begun by disgraced ‘historian’ David Starkey that it’s ‘not racism, it’s culture’, went on a riot of his own on Fox News North with Brian Lilley gleefully cheering him on. His rampage laid waste ...

Who knew Sun TV News was such a welfare queen?

Dan Gardner calls this an “indecently enjoyable read”. I wholeheartedly agree. Too bad there is not more reporting like this about Fox News North (it really is). The summation (emphasis mine): Oh, and remember the news about Conservative Transportation Minister Denis Lebel being a Bloc Québécois member? I asked the folks at the media monitoring service Infomart to find ...

Who knew Sun TV News was such a welfare queen?

Fox News North In Trouble–Again!

First, Remember this? If you don’t care to view all of it, it was basically Krista Erikson in her best Harper blue dress berating Montreal dancer and long time cultural icon, Margie Gillis on her Fox News North show.  How she would flail her arms, basically mocking dancers, twist Ms. Gillis’ words around, and yes, ...

Fox News North: 7,000 viewers. 7,000!

Despite the charity work by Shaw and Rogers, nobody wants to watch Canada’s version of Fox News. Only relatives and Con pols are tuning into what’s turning out to be Canada’s version of Comedy Central. Here’s why. John Doyle thinks Krista Erickson should leave the network pronto. I think it’s too late. This clip is humiliating ...

A. Picazo: Sun News Network: Let The (Incredibly Lazy) Astroturfing Begin!

It has been fascinating to watch the Conservative campaign strategy evolve over the past two weeks; working in tandem with Sun TV in a quest to secure a Harper majority, and to destroy the opposition leaders. Aside from the standard issued talking points submitted by the Conservative war room and subsequently written into Sun TV ...

A. Picazo: Sun News Network: Because Facts Have A Well Known Liberal Bias

“Folks, this is gonna be a thing.” ~ Sun TV host Theo Caldwell Sun News Network, a channel brought to by its own sense of self importance, is the epitome of pseudo-journalism comprised of (self professed) semi-literate on-air personalities with the combined intellectual curiosity of failed Vice Presidential candidate and former half-term Governor of Alaska, Sarah ...

A. Picazo: Ezra Levant vs Reality – A Prelude To Fox News North

The battle between supporters and opponents of Sun TV News – the Fox News style channel headed by Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s former communications director Kory Teneycke – reached new heights when members of the ‘Fox News North’ team took issue with a growing online petition urging the CRTC to reject Quebecor’s (QMI) request to “make it mandatory for cable ...
