Sun News Network: 'Fox News North' Is Straight Talk and Short Skirts

Quebecor Media, which launched Sun News as an antidote to existing all-news channels at the CBC and CTV with a liberal bias, has told the CRTC the news channel stands to lose $17 million in 2013 , with additional losses after that.

6. Dear Supply-side Jesus (pronounced Hay Zeus)

Please let the good news of the bleeding of Sun News,
Be a harbinger of the death of the neo-conservative movement in Canada.
Deliver us from Harper, Glorious and free,
Forever and Ever!

Amen

3. Canadians just aint buying it

A Canadian FOX media type channel just aint going over in Canada so the owners of the failing project want it to be incorporated into the basic cable line up,where no one will watch it anyway but the company will now get some form of subsidies for being a mainstay of the basic cable network.
