The Conservative propaganda machine, Sun News, has been accused of biased reporting in favor of the Harper government, biased reporting against environmental causes, racism, and being an enemy of the arts — and now “Fox News North” is petitioning to be on every TV in Canada.
Sun News’ political bias is no surprise — Stephen Harper’s former Director of Communications leads the channel, and Sun News effectively works as the Conservative party’s propaganda wing. However, news bias is just the beginning, the channel also has a history of hatemongering.
When the channel started in 2011, Sun News claimed that it would never demand the Canadian Radio-Television Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) to make it part of the mandatory basic cable package, as it would be a tax on all Canadians. But now the right-wing cable company is doing just that, casting off its supposed free-market principles in a bold bid to push its ideology into every Canadian household.
CRTC has complete discretion to deny new channels to be on the basic cable package. They are currently receiving public comments on whether to grant Sun News mandatory carriage. Let the CRTC know that you do not want Sun News in your living rooms.
Make your voice heard: Consumers do not want to be “taxed” to pay for Sun News to be on every Canadian TV.
