Just read an excellent article by Henry Porter at the Guardian:
These paragraphs best sum up my disgust with Murdoch media:
“Things do revert in politics but there will never be a return to normal service for the Murdoch family, which has lectured us over the years about standards and trust but whose employees may be guilty of thousands of criminal acts, now accused of suborning and bribing the police and suspected of a serious obstruction of justice with the alleged deletion of email archives.
It doesn’t get much worse than this, but think of the eye-watering hypocrisy that occurred in September 2009. Just as James Murdoch was signing huge cheques to silence people whose phones had been hacked, he attacked the BBC at the Edinburgh TV festival with a speech entitled “The Absence of Trust” in which he claimed: “The only reliable, durable and perpetual guarantor of independence is profit.””
It would be naive to think that Murdoch and his Federal Liberal Party were not involved in similar activities in Australia. The smear campaign against Simon Overland by The Australian is a good example.
When the Liberals gain office, we can be sure that we will have the best government money can buy.
