Interesting because they specifically state that they won't allow the type of news format/organization that allows lying in their broadcasts

Huffington Post. Yeah, that's fair and balanced all on it's own. Jesus Jackson.

Is that censorship?

A canucklehead Fairness Doctrine?

"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."

What a **** ing joke that you would even post this link.

Whoa, watch out for those jerking knees from the nitwits on the Right!

Huffington Post simply reported a story from the Globe and Mail, a Canadian news source.

http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/politics/ottawa-notebook/crtc-ditches-b id-to-allow-fake-news/article1921489/

http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/politics/crtc-plan-to-lift-ban-on-false -news-prompts-political-investigation/article1898147/

Canadas Radio Act that prohibts lying and misleading news:

http://www.crtc.gc.ca/eng/statutes-lois.htm

This would be awesome to get here.

Here is the text of the article as reported:

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 Wisconsin border. Fox News will not be moving into Canada after all! The reason: Canada 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 U.S. airwaves. When Stephen Harper moved to abolish 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. Harper's proposal was timed to facilitate the launch of a new right wing network, "Sun TV News" which Canadians call "Fox News North."

Harper, often referred to as "George W. Bush's Mini Me," is known for having mounted a Bush like war on government scientists, data collectors, transparency, and enlightenment in general. He is a wizard of all the familiar tools of demagoguery; false patriotism, bigotry, fear, selfishness and belligerent religiosity.

Harper's attempts to make lying legal on Canadian television is a stark admission that right wing political ideology can only dominate national debate through dishonest propaganda. Since corporate profit-taking is not an attractive vessel for populism, a political party or broadcast network that makes itself the tool of corporate and financial elites must lie to make its agenda popular with the public. In the Unites States, Fox News and talk radio, the sock puppets of billionaires and corporate robber barons have become the masters of propaganda and distortion on the public airwaves. Fox News's notoriously biased and dishonest coverage of the Wisconsin's protests is a prime example of the brand of news coverage Canada has smartly avoided.

I'd rather watch paint dry...The monumental waste of time is communicating with someone that holds only one media outlet to this standard.

No. Canada seeking to prevent dishonesty in news broadcasts has nothing to do with the Right Wing concept of the 'fairness doctrine".

Feel free to take this time to blow me out of the water with the lying and misinformation from all these other outlets that are apparently just as bad as FOX. Lets compare examples if you want. You go first.

The piece is indeed at the HuffPo and it is written by RFK Jr., so would think that yes, there may be a "slant," but the links within are to actual news events as reported by the Globe & Mail...what's the beef?

Here's a link to a story at Fox News about the Danish folks being held by pirates, as much as I don't like Fox, I have no reason to think they'd be lying in such a story...

No, youre an idiot if you think their law has anything to do with Fairness Doctrine. I was just trying to be nice about saying so. Meanwhile, please explain how this relates to the Fairness Doctrine. How is Canada going about giving equal time to all views? And keep in mind "all views" doesnt include lying and misinformation. Thats not a view, thats just lying. It has nothing to do with a political position, just false and intentionally misleading information.

Lets see if you can respond accordingly.

Good Job, sparky! An intelligent response like that sure is hard to overcome LOL

Anyway, for the record, you have made claims you cant support and now you are using phrases that have nothing to do with whats being discussed. Youre really batting 1000

Oh goody, more of this double standard crapola. <roll eyes>

The "standard" is not lying and blatently making stuff up. Many examples have been posted here of FOX doing this. No examples (that I know of) have been posted here of other networks or even HuffPo doing it. Feel free to post some. Or just one.
