I want to reach out to all blogs that are not afraid to call Murdock’s shitty corporation for what it is: a propaganda arm of The Elite. An entity chalk full of lies and deceit on a daily basis. A purposeful scam used to mind rape the gullible Americans who bother to tune in or read from his American owned dogs like Fox News
It makes me wonder if old Rupe is having some financial woes (I hope the old asslicker ends up in Madoff’s cell, or better yet sharing a Rush syringe and dying from Dumbassery).
Prison Planet has the entire story, but I did want to address a few of the statements the CEO of News Limited had to say (as quoted in the Prison Planet article (h/t Fighting Tyranny, btw). His name is John Hartigan and it appears to me that he is very afraid of the influence and safety net against their propaganda that the blogosphere has become for the likes of him and his companies.
His opinion on blogs and bloggers is outrageously ironic when you consider the character and performance of his own deviant newspropaganda outlets:
“Something of such little intellectual value as to be barely discernible from massive ignorance.”
“Bloggers don’t go to jail for their work. They simply aren’t held accountable like real reporters….It could be said the blogosphere is all eyeballs and no insights.”
“In the blogosphere, of course, the mainstream media is always found wanting. It really is time this myth was blown apart.”
“Blogs, and a large number of comment sites, specialise in political extremism and personal vilification. Radical sweeping statements without evidence are common.”
Bloggers, I don’t know about you, but this has me grinning like a mule eatin’ briars. Can you imagine the pair of hypocritical balls it takes to make these statements while working for that scumbag, Murdoch? After all the lies and water they carried for Bush and the neoCons (and still try). I don’t know what their third quarter is like, but they had a $8.4 BILLION loss in Feb., so I imagine that has them rankled, a bit.
But much more importantly is the fact that it is the internet with its independent bloggers, commenters and reporters who examine their disinformation and quickly disperse it shown for the bullshit it is made of. It is wonderful how fast we pass along information (good and bad). It is up to bloggers and the like to fact check, provide links and offer sound commentary, as a general rule, but the blogosphere is far more than just us political commentary/information blogs like this puny thing you’re reading now. Linking everything together has another motive and rationale for implementation (to regain their quickly slipping stronghold on their customersvictims).
Many people are tuning out from Faux News. There are still the die hard O’Reilly/Hannity viewersnutcases, but even many of them are turning elsewhere. Sure, there is the new “Libertarian” Glenn Beck that is trying to ride the populous wave which is gathering a few more “conservatives” who are deathly afraid of “liberalism” and God forbid they watch Olbermann or, cough, teh gay, Maddow (who is my favorite TV new personality of them all… but that doesn’t get her much). I have said countless times here and elsewhere to turn off that idiot tube when it comes to news and information. Many newspapers suck, but even they are better than TV. Obviously, if you have access, the internet is the best source for news and information, but you need to stick with independent sources (don’t go to Fox News online, as an example).
