David Akin sent to the showers

Tweet

Another casualty of the Sun News family has been taken out of the line-up. Akin-fans can at least take some solace in that the former host of ‘Daily Brief’ will continue on the network as occasional guest.

Akin can also console himself in the fact that his reputation will be less sullied now . . . → Read More: David Akin sent to the showers

Jymn’s half-assed Predictions for 2012

Tweet

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 . . . → Read More: Jymn’s half-assed Predictions for 2012

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

Tweet

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-Radio Canada To Remove Certain Offending Portions From Web Site

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

Tweet

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 . . . → Read More: And Now, Introducing the Witness for The Harpercon Prosecution, Fox News North!

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

Tweet

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.

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

Tweet

Dawg posted a video yesterday 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 . . . → Read More: Michael Coren: “It’s not about race. It’s about culture”. Bullshit.

Who knew Sun TV News was such a welfare queen?

Fox News North shows off its assets

Dan Gardner calls this an “indecently enjoyable read”. I wholeheartedly agree. Too bad there is not more reporting like this about Peladeau and 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? . . . → Read More: Who knew Sun TV News was such a welfare queen?

Fox News North In Trouble–Again!

Tweet

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 . . . → Read More: Fox News North In Trouble–Again!

Lemme Get This Straight…

Tweet

But…But…Stevie! I thought Canadians weren’t supposed to care about the transgressions of their politicians.  Hell, they weren’t supposed to care about Bruce Carson, his disgraced legal career, fraud charges and his saucey ladies of the night.  So, why are Canadians supposed to care whether or not  Jack Layton decided to have fun at . . . → Read More: Lemme Get This Straight…

Fox News North Promises to be Cheesy, and Nothing If Not Entertaining For the Morbidly Curious

Tweet

Yes, yes, I was watching it so you didn’t have to.   Ok, morbid curiosity isn’t one of my strong character traits.  Anyhow, on with the reviews from what I’ve seen.

Looks like Ezzy Levant stole Glenn Beck’s chalk board for his show tonight. Only no venn diagrams that Beck is so famous . . . → Read More: Fox News North Promises to be Cheesy, and Nothing If Not Entertaining For the Morbidly Curious

Sun News TV’s promo is Also Steve Harper’s Election Campaign Platform

Tweet

Well, Fox News North has their promo released just in time for the election campaign.  How clever of them to promote Steve’s campaign platform at the same time so he can concentrate his time solely on “evul coalitions”.

Now for the campaign bumper sticker slogan, courtesy of Fagstein

Quebecor Not Even Confident About Fox News North Being Offered On Its’ Own Cable Provider?

Tweet

I just caught Sandra Dee Crux’s post. She’s just livid, I tell ya! Livid!  Apparently, some cable providers are hesitant about carrying the new Fox News North.   That’s what’s gotten ol’ Sandra Dee’s knickers in a bunch.  It also appears that ol’ Chuckles Adler, who apparently is just dying to go on the . . . → Read More: Quebecor Not Even Confident About Fox News North Being Offered On Its’ Own Cable Provider?
