Censorship Is Censorship

September 8, 2010

I have lately been bombarded with emails telling me to sign a petition that asks the CRTC to disallow a Fox News-style TV station from operating in Canada. Whenever I go on Twitter, Margaret Atwood and others are tweeting along the same lines.

I dislike Fox News hate-mongers as much as the next person with at least half a brain but I hate censorship even more. I happen to believe the average Canadian is intelligent enough to know what the “Change Channel” button on their remote is for.  There is no need for these “liberals” to try to impose their censorship on the rest of us like some nanny.
