Malcom Turnbull’s demise as Australia’s 29th prime minister was unusual for many reasons, and truly unique for one: his was the first known prime ministership to be the subject of a billionaires’ tug of war between the nation’s most powerful media moguls.

  1. No wonder Australia is a pariah nation and political backwater when the PM can be picked by two media moguls whose media outlets publish only trivia. Stokes’ channel seven televises sport ad nauseam and Murdoch publishes primarily tabloid trash at grade four standard. As a result the Australian public has little or no idea what’s happening in the real world outside their TV screens and football results.
    The fact that Stokes and Murdoch, the two media moguls responsible for the dumbing down of Australia, have the power to decide Australia’s Prime Minister, is horrifying. Stokes and Murdoch also publish fake news and propaganda to support the alliance with the US which Australians are expected to believe – but much of what the US is doing is not reported. Australians like many Americans still believe 9/11 was an attack by Islamic terrorists – a lie. They are also expected to believe that the conflict in Syria is a civil war and that President Assad is a tyrant. Palestinians are being murdered and persecuted by Israel yet the Australian media and the government, supports Israel. It is outrageous but the media moguls, Murdoch and Stokes have supported every act of infamy by the US and the UK – notably the US use of mercenaries, ISIS and Al Qaeda in Syria to slaughter Syrians and the US/Saudi genocidal war in Yemen. However they are not reported or published. As a result Australians not only don’t know what’s going on, they have been programmed not to care.
