I only watched a couple of minutes of Sun News today so I can’t really comment much on the content except to say it sure ain’t like anything else on Canadian TV which in itself makes me very happy.
What I did want to comment on is the snide remarks being made from Sun News’ media competitors and especially the ones which smack of being misogynistic.
CBC’s Rick Mercer – “Just yesterday SUN TV’s studios was full of dry wall, today it is full of silicone”
Ottawa Citizen’s Dave Dutton – “26 babe shots in intro; still awaiting actual news”
Globe and Mail’s Jeff Blair – “If the ratings are as high as the hem-lines, Sun News has a chance”
I’m not normally one to get bent out of shape over stuff like this but imagine the outcry if it was the Sun’s journalists and on-air personalities taking shots at the CBC’s Wendy Mesley or CTV’s Jennifer Ward about how short their skirts are and sneering about their boob jobs?
