Warren Kinsella Boards The Hindenburg

I am informed that Warren is independently wealthy (though personally I have seen no evidence of this. Nada! Not a sniff!), so I suspect that he will be able to rise, phoenix-like, from the flames and smouldering ruin that Fox News North will quickly become. And when Warren is at the cottage next summer, his feet up and his time once again unencumbered by journalistic duties, he will look back upon his experience with the new and yet utterly defunct network and file it away under "fleeting, very fleeting".

Good Luck Warren! May you be spared the humiliation and failure that will soon descend upon Fox News North like a dark blanket of night!

Good grief.

I'm getting the sense that you don't think Sun TV will be an extraordinary success, one that journalism students will be discussing in reverential tones for generations to come.

Just the facts, please said...

"They haven’t tried to tell me what to say." That didn't work out quite so well for Greg Weston and Eric Margolis.

People still discuss the Hindenburg, WK. Its on everyone's top-ten disaster list.

Wow, there sure are some whiny, bitter little Liberals lately. Too bad for you ar eyour ilk that your little prophecy won't come to pass, though you so desperatley need it to.

Well, it's been obvious they are hiring up the mercenaries (Kory, Akin, now Warren) so I'm not surprised in the least. But without access to the public trough with must-carry, they'll be off the air in three -four months.

You mean without the same access that the CBC and CTV get? Possibly, but don't count on it...

After Ignatieff, Rossi, Warren needed some Sunshine in his life.

The public, Sun management will decide if his contribution will be renewed.

It's a paying gig. Let the games begin!

Good luck Warren, beware the ankle biters.

I guess they needed someone for the other 90% of the political spectrum.

Heh. Does this mean that Jay Currie and the rest of the Usual Suspects will boycott Sun TV?

What a delicious agony of mixed emotions!

Sun's effort in trying to look balanced? Kinda a being used situation?

Kinsella is not in Ignatieff's inner campaign circle. He will be as hard on Ignatieff as other Faux News North columnists would. It's like when the Sun needs a token Muslim, it gets Tarek Fatah to write a column.

Well, hopefully he'll at least try to rattle the Cons' cage once in a while instead of just being brought on to undermine Iggy. Like this:

Aw, the "Young Turks" over in PMO-land are getting their nose in a snit over Bob Rae calling them 'jihadis,' www.stephentaylor.ca/2010/10/bob-rae-self-styled-jihadi-fighter/#disqus_thread

I dunno, let's see:

"Jihadi terrorists are irrational, extreme xenophobic, hostile, and blinded by their dogmatic, fundamentalist faith"

Hmm, sounds 'bout right for most Con-Bots!

Actually, they are Young Jurks.

This could be very amusing. The other day the Sun published Kinsella and Levant columns on the same page, one on top of the other. Perhaps when Sun TV finally launches they can pair the two up in a revived version of the old Newsworld show Face Off, renamed "Rip Your Face Off" of course. Each show can end with each host serving the other with a libel suit.
