Please welcome our latest ally in the fight against all round misinformation. The Newscorpse website that focuses on the the Murdoch media empire of an Australian oligarch who has done more harm to America in the last twenty years than any other person that I can think of. GO USA! So ironic. As I try and get to grips with why there is so much absurdity and outright bigotry in society today -clearly the media shares a great deal of the blame. The main culprit is obviously Fox, but really they are all at it. I believe that about 85% of the Media are owned by six large Companies—but even supposed independents such as the New York Times can sometimes do a lousy job. There is no left wing bias in the media – there is just the right wing media and then the crazy right wing media -who basically have virtually no real journalists working for them. If you recieve your pay check from Roger Ailes – I truly do not understand how you can be considered a professional journalsist. Any way I have devoted a section of my website to such misinformation – but when it comes to News Corp—no body does it better than News Corpse
Guest post by Mark NC from News Corpse:
The world watches stunned as yet another horrific act of terrorism is carried out that senselessly takes the lives of innocent people. The city of Paris is in shock as it struggles to recover and to understand the nature of a lethal and elusory enemy. And decent people worldwide are united in sympathy, concern, and determination to prevail over evil.
President Obama expressed the condolences of the American people in statement (video below) that was heartfelt while recognizing the difficulties of the tasks that lie ahead. He said that “This is an attack not just on Paris, it’s an attack not just on the people of France, but this is an attack on all of humanity and the universal values that we share.”
The truth of that statement is reflected in the nearly unanimous agreement from national leaders around the world such as German Chancellor Angela Merkel who said that this “Attack on freedom was not only meant for Paris, it is against all of us.” Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Jaber Ansari condemned attacks saying that “Those terrorist groups that committed the Paris crimes do not believe in ethical principles and they are not loyal to any type of divine religions — including Islam.”
There was, however, a notable exception. Rupert Murdoch, the CEO and Chairman of the parent corporation of Fox News, explicitly contradicted the President and others in a tweet saying that the “Paris outrage not an attack on all humanity, but an attack on us. ie, Western civilisation!”
