Sun TV News…Fox News North?

——————————————————————————————————–

Quebecor Inc. will launch a 24-hour news channel in Canada on January 01, 2011.

[NOTE: launch date originally intended for above date, as outlined by globeandmail.ca article that read: “The company announced Tuesday it will launch the 24-hour news channel on Jan. 1, 2011, if it receives regulatory approval.” source: http://www.theglobeandmail.com/report-on-business/quebecor-fires-warning-shot-at-all-news-networks/article1604757/. But the launch date was pushed back and did not occur until April 18, 2011]

DATE: September 15, 2010
Pierre Karl Peladeau – the owner, CEO, and President of Quebecor Inc. – had help in creating Sun TV News from its architect Kory Teneycke.

Terry Milewski: “Tory Teneycke used to be Stephen Harper’s communications director before quitting and doing a brief stint as a conservative commentator on the CBC, then he quit again to set up a new conservative news channel.”
SOURCE: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4i6lsToOzxw

And what format is the conservative Sun TV News Network going to follow to provide “factual, fair, and entertaining” news programming?

TIME: 3.56 – 4.16
DATE: June 16, 2010
Teneycke: “if you are watching SKYNET in the UK. If you’re watching MSNBC or CNBC or CNN headline news, you see a format of television that is both hard news during the day and opinion shows at night. Nobody does that in Canada. It’s a market opportunity.”

And so, Sun News…

TIME: 1.01 – 01.13
DATE: June 15, 2010
Teneycke: “…different from the all-news-channels we already have in Canada by offering an attractive mix of hard news reporting during the day and straight talk, opinion journalism at night.”

Another news channel that uses the news/opinion programming format is…

Teneycke: “success for us is about business, about attracting viewers, about being successful.”

DATE: June 16, 2010
Teneycke: “Quebecor is a company doing this b/c it wants to make money.”
SOURCE: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WzBHI8JpE34

That makes Fox News’ proven-to-work format and programming style an ideal one to replicate.

A connection exists to Fox News that is far greater than simply that, however.

QUOTE: 1
DATE: August 19, 2010
Before leaving the Harper Government in the summer of 2009, Kory Teneycke and “Prime Minister Stephen Harper lunched in New York with Roger Ailes, president of Fox News, and Rupert Murdoch, who owns it.”
SOURCE:http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/politics/lawrence-martin/is-stephen-harper-set-to-move-against-the-crtc/article1677632/

And…

QUOTE: 2
DATE: June 09, 2010
“By hiring Teneycke, Quebecor and its president and CEO Pierre Karl Peladeau are following the path of Fox News Channel, whose founding president Roger Ailes is a former communications adviser to Republican presidents Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan and George Bush Sr.”
SOURCE:http://www.thestar.com/news/canada/article/821457–fox-news-north-former-harper-spokesman-joins-qmi-bid-for-all-news-network

Pejoratively dubbed Fox News North, Sun TV News’ purpose has been drawn into question; that the news channel is not meant to merely replicate the Fox Network’s financial earnings in Canada.

CLIP: 9
VIDEO: 3
TIME: 0.57 – 01.24
DATE: September 15, 2010
Terry Milewski: “the proposed channel owned by Pierre Peladeau was immediately dubbed fox news north by critics on the left who say it will be right-wing propaganda.”

Terry Milewski: “a global activist group Avaaz setup an online petition against it”
SOURCE: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4i6lsToOzxw

QUOTE: 3
DATE: September 15, 2010
Avaaz did so for Canada to avoid programming like “Fox News[’]…extremely biased, deceptive, often hate-filled content…which really poisons American democracy.”
Ricken Patel

But…

TIME: 01.06 –
DATE: September 15, 2010
Terry Milewski: “all kinds of journalists and political staffers who did not sign it got emails thanking them for signing. someone added their names without asking.”
SOURCE: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4i6lsToOzxw

CLIP: 12
VIDEO: 3
TIME: 01.25 – 01.48
DATE: September 15, 2010
Kady O’Malley: “I checked my mail box and there was a letter thanking me for signing. … no i didn’t sign, i hadn’t even got to the webpage until i got the letter. CBC’s Kady O’malley was annoyed and then intrigued to see that Kory Teneycke quickly published a column saying maybe Margaret Atwood signed but that the petition was bogus b/c of all the fake names on it – names that were not made public but which he happened to know.”
SOURCE: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4i6lsToOzxw

How did Kory Teneycke know about the phony names?

CLIP: 13
VIDEO: 3
TIME: 01.54 – 01.56
DATE: September 15, 2010
Teneycke: “you don’t reveal sources.”
SOURCE: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4i6lsToOzxw

Was Kory Teneycke involved in a scheme to discredit the petition?

TIME: 01.56 –
DATE: September 15, 2010
Terry Milewski: “Avaaz tracked the source of the names to one computer in ottawa and yesterday they asked the RCMP for a fraud investigation.”

TIME: 00.03 – 00.08
DATE: September 15, 2010
Host: “One of the top executives of Sun TVs all news network quit today. Kory Teneycke stepped down.”
SOURCE: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4i6lsToOzxw

A coincidence?

CLIP: 16
VIDEO: 3
SOURCE:
TIME: 02.23 – 02.35
DATE: September 15, 2010
Rinken: “if this was a coincidence, it was a very unlikely one b/c the resignation was sudden, it was unexpected, and it occurred just 24 hrs after we had requested a criminal investigation into a fraudulent sabotage of our campaign.”
SOURCE: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4i6lsToOzxw

CITATION: 3
DATE: September 14, 2010
Avaaz filed a criminal investigation into tampering with its Sun News petition on September 14, 2010.
Date of investigation request: http://www.cbc.ca/politics/insidepolitics/2010/09/avaaz-vs-sun-news-tv-redux-hey-remember-that-whole-petition-kerfuffle.html

CITATION: 4
DATE: September 15, 2010
And on September 15, 2010, Kory Teneycke resigned from his position as vice-president of development with Sun News.
Date of resignation: http://www2.macleans.ca/2010/09/15/teneycke-quits-quebecor-media/

So, why did Kory Teneycke resign?

CLIP: 17
VIDEO: 3
TIME: 02.09 – 02.17
DATE: September 15, 2010
Teneycke: “problems associated with such a quick move from active politics to overseeing a bureau covering the very gov’t you worked for are obvious.”
SOURCE: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4i6lsToOzxw

That is undeniable, but it is not why he resigned, for he believes…

CLIP: 18
VIDEO: 6
TIME: 2.55 – 3.20
DATE: June 16, 2010
Teneycke: “there are people who are in journalism and go into politics. there are people who go from politics into the media…i don’t see any problem with it. i don’t think it’s an issue. I’m not a journalist presenting news stories. I’m somebody who’s an executive for a media company.”
SOURCE: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AdTD2Hu_IHs

He quit because regardless if he were directly involved in the petition scandal or only appeared to have been, Kory Teneycke’s connection with Sun TV News has become a liability for the news network.

Though Kory Teneycke is no longer officially working for Sun News, his goal has been achieved:

CLIP: 19
VIDEO: 4
TIME: 00.10
DATE: June 16, 2010
Don Newman: “You said to me in 2003: ‘Canada needs a fox news’, and now here you are using Peladeau’s money to create one.”
SOURCE: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WzBHI8JpE34

What could be meant by “Canada needs a Fox News”?

The Sun News format – along with Fox News, MSNBC, and others – is designed to reduce objectivity and provide a framework upon which a narrative can be built and the line between news and opinion can be blurred.

QUOTE: 4
DATE: November 14, 2010
“The commercial success of both Fox News and MSNBC [is] of drowning television viewers in a flood of opinions…[a] trend [that] is not good for the public”.
SOURCE: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/11/12/AR2010111202857.html

TIME: 00.30 – 00.40

Murdoch: “I think good strong news organizations can, by disclosing things, help shape the agenda.”

TIME: 01.04 – 01.34
DATE: November 01, 1994
Chomsky: “its opinion. it’s through opinion only that the governed submit. meaning, thought control. if you can control peoples minds, you can control them even though they have the power. that’s what the struggle for democracy has been all about.”

Canada needs an all-news channel with news/opinion programming?

Canada needs Sun TV News?

Canada needs news that is factual, fair, and entertaining and fair and balanced?
