    Freedom of speech on the public air waves does not have to include the right to lie.  

    Canada's Radio Act requires that "a licenser may not broadcast....any false or misleading news."

    Instead of America's courts standing up for the right of the American public (who own the airwaves) to expect factual reporting, they've sided with the liars.

    Many Canadians can pick up Faux News via cable and satellite, etc., but far fewer Canadians (than Americans) regard it as a reliable source of news.

    To stand in silence when they should be protesting makes cowards out of men. -Abraham Lincoln
