Billionaire babies: how James Packer and Lachlan Murdoch kept their eyes on the prize – Michael West

The Succesor by Paddy Manning

Australia’s own  MERITOCRACY is a fable. “If they can do it you can too in the land down under” is the myth preached just as you to can win the lottery and some do while the system guarantees you won’t because it’s designed that way. Inheritance ensures an increase in generational poverty and a flow up and an imaginary promise of a better trickle-down in the next decade. Remember Hawke’s promise that no child will be born in poverty well it worked for James and Lachlan

Billionaire media scions Lachlan Murdoch and James Packer have a close friendship which has endured the ups and downs of mega-deals including Australia’s ‘Super League’ war, the collapse of One.Tel, the rise of Realestate.com.au and failure of Channel Ten – some of the best and worst moments of Lachlan’s career. This edited extract from Paddy Manning’s new biography of Lachlan Murdoch sheds new light on their tumultuous business history.

Old Dog Thought- Watch Costello Murdoch and Stokes go to town on the ALP’s First budget’s efforts to clean up the Liberal Mess. Then remember Abbotts and Hockey’s Dirty Bomb

May be a Twitter screenshot of 1 person and text that says 'Dr Peter van Onselen @vanOnselenP It tells you everything you need to know abon Angus Taylor's performance as shadow treasurer that the opposition are offering us the shadow finance spokesperson, Jane Hume, on budget night instead. First time a shadow treasurer hasn't agreed to come on... #underperformer'

The excruciating irony of Lachlan Murdoch’s Crikey lawsuit

Lachlan Murdoch’s defamation case against Crikey could come back to bite his media empire.

One Tel, Ch 10, Crickey.  Lachlan certainly hasn’t shown dad he deserves his big boy pants has he? The Advocate of Speech Freedom wants to prove money talks and make Crikey walk but they’re not going away. So now he wants to change the rules of the challenge to punish and rid himself of them by sending them broke.But the umpire said “No Way”. Now dad wants to change the company structure will he put little Lachie in charge?

It is difficult to reconcile Murdoch’s submission when NewsCorp Australia will, in all likelihood in future defamation cases, rely on and even hope to expand the application of the very defence that its heir-apparent has just labelled as worthless. If Murdoch’s argument succeeds at trial, he may win this battle against Crikey, but his stable could lose many major wars in the future.

Lachlan Murdoch, who is the world’s best-known online stalker of women and children, sues news publisher Crikey for defamationKangaroo Court of Australia

I doubt Lachlan Murdoch was going to sue Crikey, but I suspect the gamechanger was a full-page ad that Crikey ran in The New York Times calling on Lachlan to back up his threats to sue by filing and serving his defamation claim.CNN reported:

Lachlan Murdoch v Crikey: How a US Capitol article with 804 words could cost an Australian publication millions

Lachlan Murdoch’s business record in Australia hasn’t been all that great. One Tel springs to mind “At the time, Mr Packer and Mr Murdoch,lost $1 billion invested by family vehicles PBL and News Corp, They said they’d had been misled about One.Tel’s financial position.

Then came Network Ten is One.Tel Mark II – AFR For a second time he and Packer bet and lost millions on a looks-like-blue-sky business opportunity

Why does Lachlan Murdoch, a Philosophy major, believe his reputation will be improved by this legal action against Crikey?

Millions of dollars in legal costs are expected to be spent as News Corp co-chairman and Fox Corporation chief executive Lachlan Murdoch, eldest son of media baron Rupert, sues a comparative minnow in Australia, Crikey, for defamation over a June 29 article.

Tucker Carlson’s dangerous lie that Biden is targeting his audience with “87,000 armed IRS agents” | Media Matters for America

OMG Lachlan Murdoch is offended by Australia’s Crikey! So much so he’s threatening to sue. Yet, he employs Tucker Carlson et al and allows those hucksters to bullshit the American nation. It’s great to see him being sued by those voting machine corporations for the lies he and News Corp not just reported but actively supported all the way to the violence on Jan 6th in claiming they helped steal the election in 2020 from Donald Trump.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson claimed on Monday that the Biden administration is hiring “87,000 armed IRS agents to make sure you obey,” a wildly inflammatory and false claim that his network’s White House correspondent debunked a few days earlier.

Lachlan Murdoch's Self-Delusion Keeps Fox News Alive
Lachlan Murdoch revealed that he doesn’t have a f***ing clue about what goes on at the network he heads, even as he acknowledged what Fox has long pretended otherwise – that Fox is a political operation.

“The main beneficiary of the Trump administration from a ratings point of view was MSNBC… and that’s because they were the loyal opposition,” Murdoch said of the rival cable network. “That’s what our job is now with the Biden administration, and you’ll see our ratings really improve from here.” That’s a load of hogwash. In February – you know, while Biden was president – MSNBC won the total day ratings. And while Fox had the most prime time viewers, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Show beat both Tucker Carlson Tonight and Hannity.
