Fox can't expand into Canada--guess why

Fox News can't expand into Canada. Why you ask? Because in Canada dishonesty--and by extension Conservatism--is against the law:
Harper's attempts to make lying legal on Canadian television is a stark admission that right wing political ideology can only dominate national debate through dishonest propaganda. Since corporate profit-taking is not an attractive vessel for populism, a political party or broadcast network that makes itself the tool of corporate and financial elites must lie to make its agenda popular with the public. In the Unites States, Fox News and talk radio, the sock puppets of billionaires and corporate robber barons have become the masters of propaganda and distortion on the public airwaves. Fox News's notoriously biased and dishonest coverage of the Wisconsin's protests is a prime example of the brand of news coverage Canada has smartly avoided.
Yep, Canada doesn't allow people to lie on television and since Fox News is mostly lies, they can't expand into Canada unless the law is changed.
