    Fox news in Canada ? I was recently told Fox news wasn't in Canada because what they reported wasn't news or information but "entertainment". This article doesn't confirm they're entirely excluded but we could learn that they're on the right track. Misinformation is their main tool.

    Thanks to an "parlimentary" system in Canada instead of an"two" party system only as here, then "influence" of Fox news on politics counts more in the US. Also "education" over there is so much better than here in the rust belt, bible belt and coal belt. Let alone "healthcare" etc. But yeah we will never learn from other countries and only scold on them via stations like Fox news We are number "one"; right? Yes we are number "one", right now, in "lies" It is time we accept that Canada is more advanced than us in an lot of area's. We are still stuck in 1800's laws as well as "polarized" governing etc.

    That's true Tony but I also know of lots of Canadiens that have "semi-legal" sat TV dishes so they can get US programming they can't get in Canada. Most Canadians I know (and I know many) think Americans are absolutely nuts (to be nice).

    I have a work colleague in Canada. He and his wife are astounded at the stupidity radiating out of the U.S.

    Fox News is carried by selected cable networks in Canada. Cogeco, the digital cable provider in the Toronto area, offers Fox News for an extra fee to subscribers. I don't know why good Canadians would want to pay to watch Fox News, but hey they have a bunch of white supremacists there too.

    If there are "white supremacists" guess who created those?

    I think I recall seeing it as an option in our hotel room in Vancouver, B.C. the other weekend too.

    I've also tried to find any Canadian law that forbids Canadian cable providers from having Fox News and couldn't find anything.

    To be honest though - I think Fox "News" is intriguing to watch. It's allows me to be able to call out our Republican members for using right wing talking points that they hear on the channel and also allows me to gain a better understanding of what it is that makes Republicans tick.

    If my brain allowed me to believe the garbage they spewed out on any given day then I would think this country is going to hell in a handbasket myself.
