SunTV and the Future of The Media in Canada

Karl Peladeau  has an excellent article about SunTV News and the future of the media in Canada but the most striking in his article was this.
If we want to keep our democracy strong, we need to have the largest amount of available resources together to orchestrate and deliver more relevant information to the public.
To do so, we need to have the largest amount of distribution channels to reach both incumbent audiences and the new audiences that have adopted the new technological tools.
We are well positioned to move in this direction.
If we miss this challenge, Canadian democracy will become weaker, with fewer voices and less diversity, and more influence from the status quo fanatics only there to defend their own interests.
That would be a very sad day for Canada
Amen! I agree!  We need information from all  perspectives and to use all tools  that are available to get that information out to make sure our democracy stays strong. Above all we need information that is relevant to our everyday lives. The current media has been deteriorating for years now in their reporting.
They seem to give only one side of a story(Liberal) and not allow the other side to get their message out (Conservative). Roy Green has said many times that reporters today are not reporters but repeaters. I think he's right. They seem to repeat Liberal talking points all the time.

The main stream media loses credibility and ratings everyday with the faux scandals, horse races, or drive by smears and spin they engage in against anything conservative everyday.  They fail to talk about the issues that the public really cares about hence that's why only a few pay attention to them anymore. That turns the public off.

We need a media with credibility that doesn't spoon feed us,or tells us how we must think and informs us about what's really going on.  As Karl states it's there's something wrong when more Canadians watch Larry King than Power and Politics.
For instance, isn’t it shocking that a third of Canadians who watch all-news television watch CNN? I don’t want to get into criticism of the two existing all-news networks, but when Larry King draws more Canadian viewers than Power and Politics, there is something wrong.
What we see here is an opportunity for Canadians to have another choice.
He's right again there. There is a vacuum for real news in this country and SunTV can fill that vacuum. So bring on SunTV News who I hope will bring us fair and balanced coverage, allow all sides and engage Canadians pertaining to the issues that matter most to us, the average citizen.  Give us the all the facts and the truth and allow us to think for ourselves.  If they do that,they will be a breath of fresh air and will be good for Canada.  Go SunTV!


  1. Reporters are people that drank the cool aid and liked it. Of course they are among the pampered middle classes in Canada whose job is to shill for the system at every opportunity while plotting the destruction of it so that communism or something similar can replace it. (real conservative)

  2. If ever there was a country that needed other voices within the media other than liberal or Separatist it most certainly is Canada. Trudeau's CRTC is all about censorship though, so I have my doubts that we'll ever see Sun TV News. It's my understanding that the CRTC is there to forbid other voices that may pose a threat to the Trudeaupian cult.

  3. Sean, if the Afghans can have a new media and a girl running her own talk show after years of darkness and mistreatment and daily ritual during the taliban years. You can bet your bottom dollar that we can have a new media. No excuse here what so ever.

    The afghans have more fear to know that the risks they are taking will hit them back if ever the taliban rules again but, at the moment they afghans, run the show. I know that the taliban is trying to distroy their present way of life. but there is one thing the taliban can never do is take away the 'freedom of choice, media, schooling from their hearts minds and souls. These things will be a welcoming note to soothe them at their darkest hours knowing that they lived through such experience and will again.

    We are not living under the taliban rule- or are we?

  4. We are not living under the taliban rule- or are we?

    Makes ya wonder sometimes doesn't it?

  5. The canadian national media to me is a replica to that of medias which you find in Russia, Venezuela, Iran and so on, they speak the same tongue 'manipulation, lies' and the more they hammered drill into the minds of many of how must think, vote for, or live, is a doctrine known to socialism communism.

    frmgrl, did you see Glenn Beck yesterday showing the americans the 'road map' to communism socialism. Very very interesting and did you hear him mentioning Suzuki and reprating Suzuki's own words. Today, Glenn continues..
    Thank God for people like Glenn, who are willing to sacrifice themselves to do what has to be done with the Lord's help to warn the public.

  6. frmgrl, did you see Glenn Beck yesterday showing the americans the 'road map' to communism socialism.

    Yes I did Jen. He does a good job researching and linking everything together. We need to find our Glenn Beck here. I wonder who that would be.


This is my home. I hope you respect it. I will not tolerate profanity or anything that is not suitable for family consumption.
