Here Comes A Ray of Right-Wing Sun

A New day has dawned for Canadian Cable News and it is glorious. Finally, Canada is going to get a Conservative alternative to the stand pat and politically correct pablum of CBC and CTV. The Sun Media Corporation is launching an all-new 24-Hour News and opinions channel and won’t be afraid to test the boundaries of political correctness and polite society in Canada.  For too long Canadian news have self censored themselves to try and fit the narrow ideology of speech codes and human rights czars. More importantly, if successful it will push the boundaries of polite political discussion in Canada into necessary but important waters . The first duty of any news organization is to question the political power  in the culture. If our news organizations don’t ask hard questions and just become echo chambers for self-fulfilling prophecies, this makes our democracy less free not more.
