Canada says "NO" to FOX Lies
by Robert F Kennedy Jr. 


As America's middle class battles for its survival on the Wisconsin barricades - against
various Koch Oil surrogates and the corporate toadies at Fox News - fans of enlightenment,
democracy and justice can take comfort from a significant victory north of the Wisconsin border.

Fox News will not be moving into Canada after all! The reason: Canadian regulators announced
last week they would reject efforts by Canada's right-wing Prime Minister, Stephen Harper,
to repeal a law that forbids lying on broadcast news.

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.

Political dialogue in Canada is marked by civility, modesty, honesty, collegiality, and idealism
that have pretty much disappeared on the US airwaves. When Stephen Harper moved to abolish
the anti-lying provision of the Radio Act, Canadians rose up to oppose him fearing that their
tradition of honest non-partisan news would be replaced by the toxic, overtly partisan, biased
and dishonest news coverage familiar to American citizens who listen to Fox News and talk radio.

So, it's illegal to tell lies as news in Canada.
But in America, if you're honest, they pull you off the air.
(Phil Donahue, Martin Sheen, Keith Olbermann, etc)

In America, if you can tell 1,000 lies an hour, you make millions per month.
(Beck, Hannity, Pigboy)

And isn't it just like our whore networks not to mention this story?

If CNN had HALF of my brainpower (IQ of 64) they would run this "Lying FOX Fired"
story on a f-ing loop like a Charlie Sheen update to make sure every viewer knows that Canada
fired those FOX liars - but no, they'll keep this quiet to help their competition.
