Big News in Canuckistan

A Quebec based group, Quebecor, along with a former Director of Communications for PM Stephen Harper are in the process of applying for a license to offer a right of centre television network in Canada. The public and the media is calling it Fox News North, although the official name is Sun TV News. The Quebecor group is owner of the SUN newspaper chain.

The really delicious part is there is general screeching and howling from the left-leaning media about the news. The comments sections in CBC's web reports, especially, is bristling with anger and vitriol, the focus of which is often anti-American and anti-Western Canadian of the most vile variety. The fact that CBC not only allows these comments through, but actually speaks out against the new network itself is ample evidence it's time for that tax funded organization to go. I any case, those of us on the right side of the aisle are elated with the news and are rolling on the floor laughing our asses off at the full bore panic mode on display, at CBC especially. And that's not just CBC fans we're laughing at. It's CBC itself. After all, Mother Corpse's lock hold on our brains is supposed to be the natural order of things.

Here's a video of the official announcement of the new network.

CBC is afraid of the competition. Frankly, the more media competition in this country, the better. SUN News will either find an audience and succeed, or it won't and it will fail. It'll be interesting to observe.

"CBC is afraid of the competition"

You got that right. So are their fans. The screeching in their webpage comments is hilarious. Just about every second comment is some bigoted denunciation of "Americans", small "c" conservatives (neo-cons, too, but for some reason they are a separate sub-species), upper case "C" Conservatives, Harper, Harperites, Western Canadians and most of those comments denounce the so-called bigotry of those three or four pariah groups. Sorta shows what kind of audience the CBC attracts. And they want us to believe there is no bias at the CBC.

They are quite confused about the "publicly funded" versus "privately funded" thing, too.

I just hope the CRTC doesn't decide we don't need a right of centre broadcaster.
