'DuffyGate' now expands to include political interference in SunNewsNetwork application to CRTC .....

"You know people at the CRTC, This is an important decision on Sun Media. They (CRTC) have to play with the team and support Sun Media’s request.”

.Sen. Mike Duffy attempted to influence the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission’s upcoming decision involving the right-leaning Sun News Network, a source has told CTV News.

A well-placed source told CTV’s Ottawa Bureau Chief Robert Fife that Duffy approached a Conservative insider with connections to the CRTC three weeks ago to discuss Sun Media, which is asking the federal regulator to grant its news channel “mandatory carriage,” or guaranteed placement on basic cable and satellite packages.
The move would boost Sun News Network’s profile and revenues.

It would not only boost Sun News' revenues but it might give Duffy a handy place for a soft landing if he's forced out of the senate.

There seems to be no bottom to this cesspool, doe there?
