fostering ignorance is the way media moguls and the ruling elite use news to stay in the black.
The media don’t report the news, they make the news.
The only thing that astounds me more than the lies they spread, is that people actually believe the lies. It’s fucking sad.
Our ‘incompetent’ and ‘ineffective leader’ Ex-Prime Minister Julia Gillard (even with the oft-mentioned minority government) was one of our most productive in terms of getting legislation through. Not that the Australian public heard much about policy in the last 3 years – it was drowned out by the ad hominem attacks (which MSM parades as journalism) and the constantly spewing invective. Invective, that now appallingly substitutes for journalism.
Welcome to Murdocracy, people.
