Media mafia and mob rule

Media mafia and mob rule, by David Samuel, commenting on the view of the Kavanaugh nomination from Australia.

But hate-Trump propaganda endlessly churned out by the mainstream media is by no means restricted to the USA. If you relied on ABC News to inform your opinions on these events you would have a very distorted view indeed. It’s not so much that they actually give wrong information, it’s the constant sneering and disparaging manner, along with the sly spin imparted, in which information is presented.

To take just one day, on 7 October their headline read ‘Brett Kavanaugh sworn in as US Senate approves Supreme Court nomination despite sexual misconduct allegations’, followed by one of their favourite headings, ‘Donald Trump’s America’. The first ‘Key point’ that followed was that ‘Three women made allegations of sexual misconduct’ against him. They later said ‘He has denied all the allegations’ but did not mention the fact that no-one even on the Left gave the slightest credence to the claims of the second and third women, the latter of whom would have us believe that she attended at least 10 consecutive parties where Kavanaugh had routinely drugged young women and sexually assaulted them without a single word of such serious multiple criminal offences ever emerging, or that the story of the first was so full of holes that it made a colander look seaworthy.

Having seen how the US media mafia has used the principles of Dr Joseph Goebbels to stoke-up anti-Trump hysteria and to unleash the terrifying power of mob rule, we don’t want to see the same thing happen here in Australia. Already we’ve witnessed too many examples of left-wing mobs closing down public meetings that were to be addressed by speakers of conservative or merely liberal views.

It is time for we the taxpayers to say to our publicly-funded national broadcaster that we will no longer tolerate your endemic left-wing political bias. Either employ staff in something close to the ratio that their political views bear to that of the nation, and produce programs that are politically impartial, or we will demand of our parliamentary representatives that ABC News and Current Affairs be defunded.
