An Aussie Dissident
Rupert Murdoch is the most dangerous man on the planet. This Al Jazeera documentary gives us a few clues why, but it is also a wake up call about how journalism and the media have gone way off the track, lost its way, and is largely responsible for creating the dysfunctional world we live in today.
One example is Greg Sheridan of The Australian who wrote an astonishing piece of garbage recently saying Trump’s re-election would be best for Australia. Sheridan has a massive blind spot and his writings have become pure propaganda, best placed in a trashcan.
With a few exceptions, most of the best journalists (who have not been sucked into the propaganda machine, like Sheridan) operate outside the mainstream media.
In just two days, over 140,000 Australians have signed a petition calling for a royal commission into the Murdoch media. In the time it takes to watch this film, another 5,000 people will have signed it. None of the Murdoch newspapers have mentioned the petition or the massive support for the royal commission. Why?
Here, ex PM Malcolm Turnbull, a former Australian journalist and a Fox News presenter speaks out in this film about how dangerous Murdoch is for democracies.
We can also see how the Murdoch media waged a massive disinformation campaign against China over Covid-19, though the film fails to mention that Murdoch’s disinformation campaign went in tandem with the propaganda boys and girls operating deep inside the American and Australian governments.
Turnbull says he was removed from the post of Australian PM by Murdoch. If true, then it means democracy does not exist in Australia. Elections don’t matter because Rupert alone decides who leads this country and what policies are implemented.
