Dowling’s got one thing wrong Murdoch’s share price hasn’t budged. It’s business as usual in the USA. The settlement is just a cost of doing business. However, a Murdoch Royal Commission would emphasise the facts of Murdoch’s corporate modus operandi in this country and insure that it operates differently here. The UK investigation cost Murdoch the News of the World. The China investigation had him run out of the Country. Surely that demands an investigation here?
Nothing undermines democracy more than when a large media organisation lies about an election being stolen which Murdoch’s Fox News has admitted doing in the US. On that basis the Australian government should being moving swiftly to set up the long called for Murdoch Royal Commission to make sure it never happens in Australia.
