Fox News North Gets Sued!

Sources tell me that Ottawa human rights lawyer Richard Warman has launched a defamation suit against Sun TV. His suit pertains to an episode of Michael Coren's The Arena on which fellow Sun TV employee Ezra Levant guested. I have also learned that Kathy Shaidle of Five Feet of Fury has been served as well; I believe this is for hosting the episode in question on her blog.

This may be history in the making. Unfortunately, George Soros abandoned his suit after Fox News North issued a grovelling apology, so this will almost certainly count as the first one to go forward against the struggling network.

Note: I should note that Soros actually threatened to sue the T.O. Sun for a column Ezra wrote; he did not sue Sun TV.

I'm not a fan of Warman, but I like the rest much less.

This will be fun to watch unfold - what was said, who said what, etc. All the wingnut stars in one basket. Grab the popcorn!

Watch SUN issue their next apology in short order. I can't see them wanting a prolonged lawsuit that they know isn't winnable.

Maybe they can get Patrick Ross, Legal Eagle, to represent them? I hear tell he is Canada's number one Lawyer
