If we assume that to one degree or another, there will always be biases in media, would it not benefit us all to see all biases as opposed to a few chosen by a biased group (your government/religious group, mine, theirs).

If I have access to all media, biased or otherwise, I am better educated. The truth is in there somewhere. Weak minded people will eventually weed themselves out of the equation. Question everything everywhere and teach your children to do the same. You needn't look far to catch someone lying to you in support of their own agenda, just turn on your TV, every commercial advertiser, all with the complete blessing of the network who brought it to you. On the other hand, blindly believing your preferred media supplier only, is exactly what media suppliers want; to keep you just as uneducated as they are paid to keep you.

I welcome ALL forms of media to Canada, especially the biased ones, how else can I accurately determine who to fear. Democracy is a media induced illusion, not an opinion, but a fact.
