Toddler Sun News Network turns one. Still in diapers.

Tweet

Diana Mehta of the Canadian Press tries her best to polish a dirty diaper but in the end comes off somewhat like a nursemaid confronting a bawling infant. Fox News North is one year old and failing badly. It’s pulling in a paltry 0.1 per cent of viewers.

Although Mehta attempts to paint the network’s . . . → Read More: Toddler Sun News Network turns one. Still in diapers.

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

Tweet

Well, not the real Sun News Network. But 22 Minutes’ Geri Hall does a bang-on impression of a Krista Erickson Fox News North type host ‘quizzing’ Margaret Atwood. It goes something like this:

Host: “Don’t libaries (sic) cause cancer”?

Atwood: “Of course not”.

Tweet

I haven’t had that much exposure to Fox News North but from what I’ve seen there’s obviously something fishy happening at that network which is symptomatic of a bigger issue with the North American right-wing male of the species.

Tweet

With echoes of Krista Erickson snaking her arms in imitation of dance, Harper is doing his own particular jig to stop artist Franke James from expressing her view of the Conservatives’ dismantling of environmental controls. James is the victim of the Con machine trying to silence her work by doing everything in its power behind the backs . . . → Read More: Conservatives: controlling the message is paramount even when it’s art

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!
