    Sun News Network to shut down permanently: sources
    Right-of-centre news network had trouble attracting viewers
    BREAKING8:32 PM ET
    CBC News
    Sun News Network is about to sign off, permanently. CBC News has learned that the cable news television channel will shut down early tomorrow.

    The network began broadcasting in 2011, launching a right-of-centre programming schedule.

    It has had a constant challenge attracting viewers.

    Its supporters blamed the CRTC for not giving it the same access enjoyed by news channels operated by CBC and CTV.

    Almost 200 people are employed at Sun News.

    So it's not really Fox News or an affiliate.

    No big surprise about nut sauces comment. It's what I would expect from a close minded liberal.

    Canadians have been celebrating the death of Sun News with much glee. There was very little support for Sun News. An actual Fox News channel would not work in Canada.

    Fox News here is actually more popular than Sun was.

    Sun News was horrendous television. I'm not a fan of Fox but at least it has good production value. Watching Sun News was watching someone record television from their basement and most of their hosts were just, I'll be kind and say not for me.

    I mean a Canadian Fox News channel where they cover Canadian news, studio is in Toronto for example, Canadian staff and reporters - not just the airing of the American channel in Canada.

    It would die a terrible death. That's what they tried with Sun it was awful television. There is a place for right of centre talk (radio here is often conservative) but there isn't much intelligent right wing talk - just blah, blah, talking point, blah, blah. Most of the right wing hosts are brain dead and Sun gave us all of them it seemed.

    I like balance in my news, something like the National At Issue round table where you have the political spectrum covered (Chantal Hébert, Andrew Coyne and Bruce Anderson) is a great template to use. That's quality stuff. But it doesn't speak to the lunatics on the fringes and that's who Sun was after.

    So you don't think CBC is left friendly? What about CTV, City (which is owned by CTV) and Global?

    i think Canada leans left.

    City is more entertainment than news. CTV News channel I don't watch enough to get a feel for political side. CBC News network leans left but it's a great product and they give everyone a voice. It's a great network in my opinion. The National and the Fifth Estate in particular are spectacular news programs.
