The war between Doug Ford's government and the news media escalated this week when the Ontario premier and his finance minister Vic Fedeli took off for New York City on Monday, ostensibly to sell U.S. corporations on the idea that the province is "open for business."

While there, Ford popped up on the Fox Business Network, the right arm of the decidedly right-wing Fox (infotainment) News Channel on which, if something is in the public interest, it's dubbed "socialism."

During the surprise four-minute segment, conservative host/commentator Stuart Varney buttered up a beaming Ford by comparing his government style to that of Donald Trump's -- all of which the premier lapped right up.
