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.

Goes on to rip Harper a new one...

Harper, often referred to as "George W. Bush's Mini Me," is known for having mounted a Bush like war on government scientists, data collectors, transparency, and enlightenment in general. He is a wizard of all the familiar tools of demagoguery; false patriotism, bigotry, fear, selfishness and belligerent religiosity.

They didn't bother to repeal any laws in the States, the media feel it is their job to lie to the public, as it is around the world. They just take care not to acknowledge it as was the case here.

Quote:“There is no such thing, at this date of the world’s history, in America, as an independent press. You know it and I know it.
“There is not one of you who dares to write your honest opinions, and if you did, you know beforehand that it would never appear in print. I am paid weekly for keeping my honest opinion out of the paper I am connected with. Others of you are paid similar salaries for similar things, and any of you who would be so foolish as to write honest opinions would be out on the streets looking for another job. If I allowed my honest opinions to appear in one issue of my paper, before twenty_four hours my occupation would be gone.
“The business of the journalists is to destroy the truth, to lie outright, to pervert, to vilify, to fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread. You know it and I know it, and what folly is this toasting an independent press?
“We are the tools and vassals of rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes.”

John Swinton, preeminent New York journalist 1880

Our media mogul is Conrad Black (owned the JPost), we call him 'Lord Almost' because as a Canadian he could not accept a British peerage without renouncing his citizenship chuckle.gif jailed in the US for fraud

edit,
looks like he did renounce his Canadian citizenship, he's now Lord Black of Crosshairbor chuckle.gif Sorry P

Preventing the truth in media is made all the easier now that all but a few outlets are owned by a handful of people.

 
And the people bowed and prayed
