The sudden end to the Sun News Network, more commonly referred to as Fox North, has prompted an outbreak of Mad Cow Disease at an Alberta farm.
The direct implications are being investigated by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, but the strain is linked to biased news coverage which could only appeal to angry, rural, Prairie farmers.
Three main theories have been put forth: it’s possible that the rancher was angry enough about the end of Sun News that he infected the cows himself; Sun New executives could have orchestrated the outbreak in hopes that the public would demand Sun News return to cover Mad Cows; or perhaps the cows self-inflicted the disease in hopes of becoming marginalized by Ezra Levant.
This is Alberta’s latest Mad Cow outbreak since 2011—the year that Alison Redford became the province’s Premier.
