Free Democracy: Canada in the crosshairs: Media conservatives sling mud north of the border: "Following Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin's remarks criticizing U.S. global environmental policies, a number of conservative media figures have attacked Canada, hurling baseless accusations and derogatory comments at America's northern neighbor. Media Matters for America documented Fox News' host Neal Cavuto's December 14 attack on Canada. Cavuto asked: '[H]ave the Canadians gotten a little bit too big for their britches?' and '[C]ould our neighbors to the north soon be our enemies?' In the same vein, MSNBC host Tucker Carlson dismissed the entire country as 'essentially a stalker,' and 'your retarded cousin you see at Thanksgiving.' Also, Douglas MacKinnon, press secretary to former Sen. Bob Dole (R-KS), alleged that 'the Canadian government not only willingly allows Islamic terrorists into their country, but does nothing to stop them from entering our nation.'"
