I think CTV should be the most worried. They need viewers so they can get advertisers and make a profit. They are at risk of having 30% of their viewers leaving the station.
What amazes me is that some lefties are so scared they are already calling for a ban. The station isn't even approved yet, but they are already demonizing it. Typical lefties, only their opinions are allowed to exist.
Funny how no lefties protested Al Jazzera being allowed in Canada, but a semi-conservative station can't be allowed to exist. Are lefties just stupid, or do they not even see their own hypocrisy.
Quebecor planning 24-hour right-leaning network
The title says it all, they just have to alert everyone that it is a "right-leaning" network. Does anyone ever call CBC or CTV "left-leaning"? HA! Thought not.
Quebec billionaire Pierre Karl Péladeau is attempting a major shakeup of television news in Canada, with plans to launch a 24-hour cable channel modelled on the right-leaning U.S. network Fox News.
It is a shot aimed directly at CBC and CTV, which for years have dominated the all-news format in English Canada. For months, Mr. Péladeau's Montreal-based media empire, Quebecor Inc., has been putting together plans for a channel that will tap the same conservative sentiment that has made Fox News a major contender for ratings in the U.S.
It appears that CBC and CTV don't like competition. But really when CTV admits that it's all about gossip, what do you expect?
Bring it on! Let the power of capitalism shine.
