Canada refuses to authorize Fox News lies

In case you needed another reason to avoid Fox News, here’s the latest on the company’s efforts to broadcast in Canada as Sun TV News:

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.

Another reason to love Canada. Good for them for refusing to compromise their principles.
