Phil Gould crying! image Infantile Nation: Gang Bang vs ‘Professional’ Services velvet, Friday, May 15 2009, 2:16am
I have been waiting patiently for a commentator, journalist or academic to write a rebuttal to the prurient media frenzy surrounding a top grade Aussie footballer’s sexual misadventures, subsequent SCAPEGOATING and social crucifixion by the ‘dingo ate my baby,’ Oz mass media! However, not unexpectedly, NONE have been forthcoming – not surprising, as sensationalism replaced integrity in Oz journalism decades past! (story and 2 images)

Is your favourite media outlet relentlessly pursuing KNOWN, SELF-CONFESSED, and other (proven) WAR CRIMINALS? NO! Then it’s not acting in the PUBLIC INTEREST! REAL journalism acts as society’s CONSCIENCE; it does not compromise in its pursuit of KNOWN war criminals until justice is served – has JUSTICE been served yet? (story and 1 image)

Murdoch, empire in decline image Murdoch orders Rudd to implement fibre optic to the HOME! gan, Wednesday, Apr 8 2009, 11:42am
After fumbling Rupert’s last dictate – mandatory internet censorship -- the Oz labour government is embarking on a broadband scheme which puts new meaning in the terms ‘overkill’ and ‘wild spending!’ A forty three (43) BILLION dollar nationwide project to install fibre optic to the home! That is a crazy amount of public money in view of the fact that government is the least qualified organisation to undertake such a project. (story and 3 comments and 2 images)

text Jon Stewart becomes angry public's avenger Howard Kurtz via reed, Sunday, Mar 15 2009, 9:23pm
WASHINGTON — Jon Stewart has amassed a passionate following as a sharp-edged satirist who punctures the balloons of the powerful with a caustic candor that reporters cannot muster. As public furor over the economic meltdown rises, the Comedy Central star has turned not just his humor but his full-throated outrage against financial journalists who he says aided and abetted the likes of Bear Stearns, AIG and Citigroup, especially those who work for the nation's top business-news channel.

Schoolboy Minister, Stephen Conroy image Clean feed filtered out Mitchell Bingemann via liberty, Tuesday, Mar 3 2009, 7:33am
Mandatory information censorship is a suicide pill for any Oz government but none swallowed it more effectively than Rudd's Murdoch controlled Lay-bore government of bereft incompetents. And Stephen Conroy takes 'star' billing as incompetent #1. Peter 'backflip' Garrett whose anti-uranium stance had all the integrity of a chameleon in a paint shop, is ecstatic that Conroy has taken the albatross from around his neck. (story and 2 images)

text The fix is in: Oz mandatory internet filtering Kismo, Thursday, Feb 12 2009, 11:30pm
Corporate errand boy and Oz Communications Minister, Stephen Conroy, has selected a group of minor (compliant) ISPs (see link) to conduct his INFORMATION CENSORSHIP tests. Telstra, iinet and Optus, by far the three largest carriers in the country, have ‘somehow’ been excluded from the tests, which would throw into question any results obtained with non-representative carriers – it’s a MATTER OF SCALE, stupid!

text Obama and Washington Mythmaking Robert Parry via reed, Friday, Dec 19 2008, 8:31pm
Over the years, Washington has evolved into a city of deceptions where semantics cloud reality and where a hazy mix of lies, half-truths and mythology can combine to unleash the devastating military might of the United States for no good reason. Indeed, if there were to be a serious effort to "change the mindset" that got the United States into the Iraq War - as Barack Obama has promised - one place to start would be to force Official Washington to take a long hard look in the mirror.

Errand boy, Conroy image Internet Censorship in Oz bashed by dominant Telco quill, Friday, Dec 5 2008, 10:04pm
It is becoming abundantly clear to every Australian that the Rudd Labor Government hasn’t a clue. After one year in office the PM, Kevin ‘07’ (Dud) and his pack of no-hoper ministers have demonstrated their collective inability to deal with the major issues confronting the nation; not least of which is upgrading the archaic broadband network -- known to be a liability on all users, especially the business, medical, scientific and agricultural/rural communities.

[Numerous posts to this site (input google in search box) warned very early of Google's intention to monopolise ALL available data. The mass media has as usual been extremely sluggish in reporting real threats to our democracies and freedoms. However, perhaps from fear of its own future relevance, if Google succeeds with its plans, the mass media now reports on the Corporation that is without doubt the greatest threat to free thought and liberty in the world today.

The Associated Press is running yet another story on the now notorious “Pet Sematary” White House puppy! Given the many crises and current instabilities around the globe, dwelling on trivia is bordering on criminal neglect. A previous article mentioned the obscenity of the American media and its obsession with trivial matters while people are being slaughtered DAILY by American forces and mindless remote-controlled UAV (drone) attacks!

The Murdoch-Rudd government of Australia is about to implement draconian censorship and information filtering measures on the internet, beginning ‘Christmas Eve’ – well timed, draco!

'Rupert' Goebbels image Censorship in the Western Media: What they Don't Want You to Know Eric Sommer via quill, Wednesday, Nov 5 2008, 8:47am
The Western media has recently outdone itself in censoring important stories - stories which contradict the policies and interests the media seeks to uphold.. Western publics have been systematically misled in recent weeks on vital issues related to war-and-peace, human rights, the financial crisis, and more. Only a few examples can be set out here. But it should be enough to indicate the extent to which world reality is being filtered by the media. (story and 1 comment and 2 images)

The title refers to a ‘stage act’ at one of Saffron’s clubs, The Venus Room, a venue that catered for Sydney’s working class Joes. The undisputed king of Sydney’s Entertainment Underworld not only catered for the knights of the realm, ‘sophisticates’ and closeted power brokers but to the common people; yes, Abe was a true Aussie egalitarian criminal who provided entertainment for everyone!

Sometimes it pays to inform your opponent directly rather than leading him by the nose or allowing him to believe he actually thought of something rather than act on the very subtle cues you placed in his brain. Great idea, why didn’t I think of that? Doh! (story and 2 images)

Today, July 13, my news aggregator revealed a world of INANITIES in the mainstream press! After glancing at the featured content, I realised we, the masses, are completely LOST. It hit home (hard) that ‘pigs, dogs’ and incompetent buffoons rule the world because they actually REPRESENT the mindless, moronic MAJORITY – therein lies the formula/seeds of our destruction! The grim fate beckoning vacuum-heads beckons us ALL – I began to wish it was all a bad dream but it was worse, it was on TV! (story and 3 comments and 3 images)

The most damning and potentially EXPLOSIVE news to hit Australia in decades is the revelation of planned U.S. Sarin nerve gas tests on Aussie troops in the 60’s. [The reader will note that the use of (nerve) gas ‘weapons’ was banned by international convention decades earlier!] (story and 1 comment)
