You have to laugh Russia first hails Murdoch’s Fox News as the Republic’s propaganda heroes but then condemns it’s doppelgangers Sky News and Newscorp Aus as its enemies. It welcomes Tucker Carlson, Ingraham etal, but bans Lachlan Murdoch, Andrew Bolt along with, the ABC’s, Ita Buttrose and Patricia Karvelas.

Bet you Andrew Bolt is feasting on his new left-wing, anti-fascist almost ANTIFA status. He’s been declared a journalist something he’s always said he wasn’t but now seems he is. It’s a celebrity boost. Is he ringing the Murdoch’s assuring them Tucker and Fox No News are still his role models down under? We do live in a circus of fools don’t we? The Russians are watching the ABC, Newscorp, and a random mix of others and are sanctioning them simply because they are there without any sense of logic. Bolt isn;t critical of Fox News or the Murdochs but is named simply because he’s there sold as a Journalist which he’s not and hasn’t been since Christ played ruck for Jerusalem.

Russia’s foreign ministry has announced it is sanctioning an additional 121 Australian citizens, including journalists and defence officials.

Defence chief Angus Campbell is also on the blacklist, as is News Corp columnist Andrew Bolt.
