When the world of fact-free corporatized opinion is allowed to dominate and be sold as News, chaos rains. Individuals, subs and ratings have become the product with which corporate media competes and where the wealth lies the playing ground. News no longer is what’s needed to attract the flow of $$$. If you want News I’m afraid you will need to look elsewhere. So it’s time the corporate media’s product be renamed or charged for selling false product. It’s not News as we once knew it. Unfortunately in Australia the L-NP focuses on neutering the ABC the nations only major News seller and public auditor of government policies and actions and will continue to do so. The ALP accepts the role of the ABC moreso than the L-NP in our Democracy. To audit, inform and force governments of all persuasions to explain and justify themselves. A role the L-NP, the privileged and powerful interests the market to whom the L-NP cater want canceled.
