Old Dog Thought- Isn’t it strange it’s taken 7 years for two acadmics to respond to Bruce Pascoe’s book Dark Emu and largely agree that Aboriginal life and history is more complex than white men have attributed it.

Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp has written down the value of its once high-flying The Sun title to zero.

Kevin Rudd wants to see more courage in Australian politics

Rudd’s latest contribution to the debate is The Case for Courage, part of a series curated by Australian publishing doyen Louise Adler and published by Monash University Publishing. This little red book, easily read in one sitting, is a call to arms to the Australian Labor party and its supporters. But it is a wake-up call for all of us. Rudd asks Labor to be brave and act with courage to hold the conservatives to account and guarantee media diversity by breaking Murdoch’s media domination, in order to protect and strengthen Australian social democracy. The book starts with a critique of the Murdoch oligarchy and ends with a vision for a “big Australia”, a fourth way, as Rudd describes it:

Tucker Carlson is the face of Fox News | Media Matters for America

Tucker Carlson Fox News

Time to choose Fox has engaged in a deliberate strategy to make its brand inseparable from Carlson’s. The network should pay a price for that. Advertisers who support the network are now indirectly — and at times directly — supporting Carlson’s vile rhetoric. Media buyers should remember that when Fox tries to pitch them on ads at the upfronts later this month. If they continue to support Carlson, they own the results.

The Chaser’s war on News Corp is proving costly for the Murdoch media

Long ago, The Chaser declared war on News Corp Australia for its culture-warring, climate-change-denying ways.

Before they tricked News Corp into reporting on a fake petition about fairy bread being “cancelled”, the satirical publication’s team dreamed up a plan to help readers hit the company where it really hurts: its bottom line.

In 2019, The Chaser started cancelling subscriptions on behalf of people who were fed up with News Corp.

“Are you sick of that crotchety old billionaire Rupert Murdoch siphoning off your hard-earned cash each week?” The Chaser website asks.

“Are you sick of supporting a newspaper which gives airtime to climate deniers as the country burns down around you? Want to just cancel your subscription to The Daily Telegraph that keeps clogging up your mailbox, but can’t be arsed waiting on the phone for three hours?”

Participants use a simple web form to sign over their legal rights to The Chaser to act as a representative, who will then cancel their News Corp subscription on their behalf.

Say what you want, Murdoch. Exaggerate according to your own conscience. – » The Australian Independent Media Network

Think television, newspapers, public speeches, movies, sport, news, advertising, entertainment, radio and above all, politics. Think about what you see, read and hear. Now think about the word “exaggeration.”

We have the best firefighters in the world, the best law enforcement agencies, the best health experts. We have “the best” of so many and so much it’s a wonder we aren’t the best in the world. Whoops, I’m sorry, we are the best in the world.

“We have the best people in the world looking at these issues,” said Scott Morrison on ABC Insiders last Sunday. He was referring to the problem of obtaining vaccines.

For me, l must say that l find all the exaggeration rather appalling and unnecessary. It is lying dressed in the clothes of fools.

Media concentration by Murdoch, Nine and Stokes, and ABC cuts, a danger to democracy – report – Michael West

The heavy concentration of media ownership in Australia corrodes democracy. The antidote is a thriving public broadcaster, but by 2023, Coalition cuts to the ABC will add up to $1 billion. Elizabeth Minter reports.

Where will Rupert Murdoch place his final bets?

But there is at least one other deal process in Australia that may have piqued Murdoch’s interest. An auction is under way for Australia’s largest listed gambling business, Tabcorp, after the $10 billion firm told the market last month it had received numerous approaches for its wagering business, which includes the TAB and Sky Racing brands.

There has long been an alignment of interests between those who despise the EU and those who despise the BBC for its publicly funded journalism. This confluence has also been demonstrated by British newspaper owners and their editors; now two new television ventures are providing a fresh outlet.

Travesty – a false or distorted misrepresentation of something – » The Australian Independent Media Network

The only comparison that can be made is that like Murdoch’s NewsCorp, Google and Facebook do not pay taxes – see Crikey’s article – “Tax dodging News Corp continues to rip Australia off – and is subsidised by taxpayers to do so“. Unfortunately, for verification purposes one of the many consequences of the Government’s pernicious agenda to undermine public interest journalism being shared on Facebook is I am unable to share the link to Crikey.
