This is really rich — and sad and funny at the same time. It seems, due to the fact that Canada legally restricts media organizations from presenting falsehoods on the air, Fox News will not be able to set up shop north of the border. Canada's conservative PM, Stephen Harper, tried to get the pesky "truth in journalism" law repealed, but was unsuccessful. Here's one account of the story. More to come, no doubt, after rival networks take their shots at the story.
