Something remarkable is happening in Canada right now. Something that will change the future of news media.

On Feb. 13, Sun News Network went dark, as did the jobs of about 200 employees, including very talented people like Ezra Levant, Brian Lilley, and Faith Goldy. Sun News was often called Canada’s Fox News, featuring reporting and analysis from a conservative point-of-view, and serving as a balance to very liberal Canadian news outlets.
