Fox News' Lies Keep Them Out of Canada

Post by JaneWI on Thu Mar 03, 2011 8:37 am

Please move this if it isn't in the correct place or close it if this topic is already being covered.

It's too bad we don't have laws like this in the United States. What happened to the fairness doctrine?

"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. As a result of that law, Canadians enjoy high quality news coverage, including the kind of foreign affairs and investigative journalism that flourished in this country before Ronald Reagan abolished the "Fairness Doctrine" in 1987."

I believe mentioning this is great since I honesty didn't know that Canada was like this.
I used to be Republican years ago but they have changed to where, like in Wisconsin and other states with new Republican governors, its like they are power hungry and don't care about people. It appears they feel that since they won back in November, that gives them the power to change everything. If say 80% had a tendency to vote in these November elections, than maybe you can see changing things.
What they are doing, they won't have any chance in 2012 because of their stupid selfish moves that will make people realize, we need people in the House and Senate that care about the working people, not the rich.

I'm not surprised at all. Anyone who thinks "FOX" and "News" are related, doesn't know the first thing about those two terms.

I prayer your predictions are correct, but I still see a lot of people in favor of cutting social programs completely and getting rid of collective bargaining rights. Some of this may be due to all of the anti union commercials airing and some in the media making it seem that union members are "thugs".
