It's a done deal. Sun TV News will go to air on April 18th and I can't wait.
It's not the actual channel I'm anxious for, I'm more looking forward to the reaction from you know who. Since plans for the channel were announced back in June it' been quite entertaining to watch and listen to the opponents.
There have been thousands of interventions against the channel and one group actually went to the CRTC demanding that "Fox News North" be stopped.
Imagine that, people thinking that they should have a say in what you and I watch. They don't have right leaning beliefs, so nobody else should. It really is amusing.
It boils down to this; they don't think you and I should have a choice. We shouldn't be able to watch a channel that they don't like, even though they haven't even seen what they don't like.
Listen, Sun TV News might be the biggest pile of garbage that was ever inflicted upon the public, but we should still have the opportunity to make that decision. To think that there are some that would prevent this basic right is frightening.
It doesn't mean much to a lot of you, but there's a message board that's quite popular amongst the radio crowd and there are some big opponents of Sun TV News, problem is, none of the opponents really offer any solid arguments against why Canadians shouldn't have this choice.
There just seems to be a lot of sniping against Stephen Harper, Conservatives and right wing people being stupid and not being capable of making proper judgments based on what they see.
Anyway, I'm going to extend an invitation to a couple of the people who frequent the message board. I'm going to ask them to explain why Sun TV News is such a threat and why having a right leaning TV channel is something we should be saved from.
I hope they respond in a positive manner. So you can compare their beliefs to mine, and then make a choice.
