Hard news straight up: Sun News Network launches today at 4:30 p.m.

I know what I’ll be doing this afternoon: watching the long-awaited Sun News Network, which hits the television airways today at 4:30 p.m. We’ll see, but I’m expecting balanced hard news and a conservative voice in editorial content—i.e., a counterbalance to the oh-so-liberal CBC News and CTV News cable networks.

Today on CBC, they reported on the lie contained in an oft-run Liberal ad. Throughout the report, the CBC commentator referred to Conservatives said this and Conservatives claimed that. The true story, of course, is the fact that the Liberals told a lie publicly, and apparently did so knowingly. It’s irrelevant that its the Conservatives who are complaining about it. All Canadians and media should be outraged and saying so.

Let’s hope the folks at Sun News understand there’s a difference and give us our hard news straight up, not biased against one side or the other. Then a conservative voice in editorial content will do just fine.

  3. Channel 517 on Shaw Direct in Sask.:
    I phoned them and had them add it to my channel list because my screen said "acquiring signal..please wait."

  4. 3 conservative families own over 80% of all Canadian media, they even own torstar, because it pays for itself as well as pay for a lot of other less successful conservative media outlets. Last year all 3 family empires were on the verge of bankruptcy, then came Action Plan Media Scam, and low and behold Sun now has enough money to fund a television channel, with a little help from the enemy of independent journalism: Rupert Murdoch. So congratulations corporatists on your newest government purchase.
