The GetUp ad is brilliant. Television networks in Australia are refusing to run it because the message is equally applicable to the low journalistic standards they themselves practice. Apart from the Guardian and a couple of independent online journals in Australia, the media in Australia has become little more than the propaganda arm of right-wing political parties and their corporate backers. Murdoch is simply the public face the systemic corruption of the media and journalism.

Boycott murdoch.

The ultimate living proof how outrageous monopolies destroy both honest capitalism and democracy.

And as usual, it's too late to do anything about it.....

“We are not, and never have been, cheerleaders for any one side of politics”

Yeah, right.

Rubbish, there are still plenty of left-wing nuts working at Fairfax, Channel Ten and ABC. The ABC is the real voice of the Labor govt.

OzKen. The so called left wing nuts were all fired about 20 years ago. What is left are those who are prepared either to sell their souls or are already right wing. I often wonder if the ABC is really all that left wing either. Murdoch has been pulling the strings of too many politicians for too long and firing those real journalists until what is left is a very sorry state.

I'm a realist, after all I know what we'll get on Saturday night. Look if you read the SMH there are loads of lefties on there. Peter Fitzsimons for one. Channel Ten demographically target younger Australians - a sin left-leaning high school and uni students - on shows like The Project and their morning show which got canned because nobody watched it. And the ABC have the unashamedly biased Q&A program amongst other programs who try and spruik up this failure of a govt as much as they can. Even the Daily Telegraph have union lackeys and feminists writing articles for them so don't try and pretend it is all one-sided.

At the end of the day it is not really my problem if there aren't any successful enough lefties rich enough to buy publications, radio stations or buy into TV Networks, and I couldn't really care less. I hate everything this Labor Government stands for so I openly welcome anything that is anti-Labor to drum into the heads of the not too bright, that they have to go on Saturday. It looks as though it is a job well done by all.
