Media principles

The great danger for Western civilisation is that the media have with honourable exceptions been captured by the left. The result is that:

1. The media never criticise parties of the left under any circumstances.

2. The media find every possible fault they can with actions taken by or statements made by representatives of the parties of the right – or even by people who can be made to appear as representatives of the parties of the right.

3. The media, as with the left in general, are beyond hypocrisy. There are no principles, only tactical advantage. The media, like the left, are totally consistent, bearing in mind they have no fixed values themselves but seek only power and wealth.

4. Deterioration in every aspect of life is allowed to take place without comment if someone on the left can be held responsible for the damage.

5. No one on the conservative side of politics is permitted to repair any damage caused by the left without intensive criticisms over the harm such repair is doing to particular individuals. Fairness is not based on any standard but only on who is making the change. If the change is made by a party of the right, it is be definition unfair and will be opposed to the fullest extent.

    Putting the moron back in oxymoron

  2. Hugh says:

    Agreed.
    Until the non-left understand that their greatest enemies are not Labor or the Greens, nor establishment academia, but the media itself, they’re thoroughly screwed.

    Worse than that, in their they’ll slowly, ineluctably, morph to the left. This process has been going on already for quite some time.

  3. Hugh says:

    in their ignorance … apologies

  4. Ant says:

    A fearless and impartial media would have never have allowed a Kevin Rudd or Julia Gillard to get anywhere The Lodge.

    And Barack Obama would have been laughed off the stage after the first few days of the 2008 Democrat primaries.

  5. marg of nambour says:

    Case in point – Cory Bernardi in his latest “weekly dose of commonsense” newsletter (corybernardi.com) :

    Naturally, the inquiry [into Halal] has generated a great deal of media interest. During one appearance on the ABC’s Lateline to discuss the inquiry earlier this week, the interviewer [Emma Alberici] even suggested that it was racist because it referred to halal (or Islamic) certification.

    I politely pointed out that it couldn’t be racist because Islam is not a race, to which she responded: “..well, Muslims then.”

    At that point I politely explained that Muslims weren’t a race either which prompted her to suggest the inquiry was targeted at Arabs!

    I went on to explain that halal certification authorities exist all over the world, including the United States and not just in Arab countries. This was met with an awkward silence.

    Regretfully, the entire thing was pre-recorded and much of the engagement didn’t make the broadcast version, but it provided an insight into just how naive (or deliberately misleading) sections of the media can be.

    You can watch what did go to air on my YouTube channel and make your own assessment.

    As disappointing as experiences like this can be, it highlights just how difficult it can be to represent the concerns of the Australian majority through a media more interested in belittling them.

    However, giving in and vacating the field is not an option. If we truly do want to make a difference then every conservative needs to be prepared to enter even the most hostile territory to make sure our voice is heard.

  6. Benito says:

    As someone who’s relatively media-ignorant, doesn’t the right get a fair go at least in the Australian media?

    As far as print media goes, doesn’t the left-wing Fairfax and right-wing News Corp create somewhat of a balance in views between them?

    That being said I’m not at all going to debate the left-wing bias of the public media.

  7. Seco says:

    Unfortunately most Australians think The Project is a credible news source.

    We get what we deserve in the end, and people like me end up suffering brain damage from banging our heads against brick walls.

  8. Mantaray says:

    The simplest way to discredit the “anti-Muslim= racism” meme is to ask the leftist making the assertion whether anti-Christian=racism too….

    Something which kinda annoys me on the Cat is the way so many posters assume the great unwashed to be ignorant idiots unable to see through the media’s tricks, when in reality barely 5-10% watch ABC and SBS; probably a much lower % for their news + current affairs vs sport and dramas/comedies. Likewise, when it comes to paying for their news/entertainment, the masses go for Murdoch over Fairfax etc. In both cases this should tell you that the ” idiot bogans” are not overly influenced by the leftist BS.

    Recent polls etc are also showing that the masses were unmoved by media attempts to portray the executed Bali drug dealers as “good guys”; that they do not agree with not stopping the boats; that they do not see combating ACC as a great moral issue; and so on. which again indicates that too many Cats are wrong about the “stupidity” of the masses.

    Take Seco (1.28am) claiming that most Aussies see The Project as serious news……from Wiki…

    ” The Project was nominated for three Logie Awards at the 2013 ceremony with newsreader Bickmore again picking up two nominations for the Gold Logie and Silver Logie for Most Popular Presenter, and the show earning a nomination in the Most Popular Light Entertainment Program category. Bickmore nor The Project won either category.[21]…..Ratings: 2014[edit]
    The Project has languished in the ratings, with the first half of the show twice rating under 300,000[43]

    This nonsensical hand-wringing really has to stop guys. The average Joe is not the dope you want him to be.

  11. ChrisPer says:

    Curiously, a wormhole opened through time and brought back a future edition of the Hitchhikers guide to the Galaxy. It defined the Australian Broadcasting Corporation as ‘a bunch of reactionary arseholes who were first against the wall when the revolution came.’

  12. ChrisPer says:

    Principle 1: The media never criticise parties of the left under any circumstances.

    When it came to a crunch between the Greens and PM Julia, it was so funny reading the ABC websites. They didn’t know whether to shoot or go blind.

  13. Robert Crew says:

    1. The media never criticise parties of the left under any circumstances.

    There’s an important corollary missing from this rule, it should read:

    The media never criticise parties of the left, except from the left.
    The ABC has been known to criticise ALP/Green figures, but only when they can attack them from the left.

  14. Blogstrop says:

    The ABC will criticise Labor if they aren’t being left enough.

  15. Entropy says:

    Wait, Bernadi agreed to a pre taped interview on the ABC? The man is an idiot.

  16. Badjack says:

    @Chris Per…. too much self caused shooting will make you go blind anyway.

  17. ChrisPer says:

    Eleventy-one: the media people are flat out, short of cash and short of copy. Doing their job for them even to drafting the story and providing interview video ready for them to edit in their own by-lines can, if you are reliable, get your story out. Look at Four Corners; provided you re-write the only story they allow about industry for them, they will broadcast any old tosh. Look at ABC acting as Lee Rhiannon’s personal press office. Look at the gerbil worming scandals – no original research byjournalists, ever.

  18. incoherent rambler says:

    Agreed ChrisPer.
    And –
    6. Each media interview of a non-left politician must begin with a sneer (curled upper lip) by the interviewer. (References ABC, SBS interviewers, Riley)

  19. JohnA says:

    IR and ChrisPer

    7. Or corollary 2 to No 1
    “The left/media reserve their most Acidic, Bilious and Condemnatory vitriol for those formerly in the left camp, who have “defected” (aka “ratted”, “deserted”) to take up more conservative views .

  20. ChrisPer says:

    @Chris Per…. too much self caused shooting will make you go blind anyway.

    I am starting to doubt that, when I look at the media. They do it all the time, but only go blind in one eye.

    Of course that may explain my own fading vision…

  21. john constantine says:

    Once one of their abc presenters has stitched up a tory by editing a pre recorded interview to bring it in line with their agenda of progressing socialism, they must be politely informed that they are no longer trusted for pre-recorded interviews.

    A regional abc radio presenter was so rabid during her bout of depression that she had actually been moved from city radio to country radio, and the strategy of tories refusing to be stitched up by her in editing actually worked–she exploded in rage, but when it sunk in that she got to do polite live interviews or nothing, she improved.

  22. CameronH says:

    Mantaray, Re you comment on the media at 4.07 AM. Most people are not sucked in, I agree, unfortunately the media represents the loudest and, sometimes, only voice in the public space and mostly represents itself as the voice of the public.

    This makes it extremely hard for politicians, who do not share the leftist views of the media elites, to get their views and policy statements and intents out to the public in an ordered and unmanipulated fashion. It also makes it difficult for them to totally ignore the media.

    You have to remember as well, that Australian elections are won at the margins. It is probably a significant number of those 5- 10% ABC viewers who will decide the election result.

  23. Token says:

    1. The media never criticise parties of the left under any circumstances.

    I smell blood in the water.

    I heard some smart lefty media players from Washington interviewed after Queen Hillary did her Disney step mother routine in a press conference yesterday.

    They did not criticise Hillary directly, but they did start playing the APOBTH* game – saying people need a 3rd party due to the “poor candidates” in both parties.

    * APOBTH – A Pox On Both Their Houses – as in the technique of down playing an unelectable & often criminal lefty by stating the option from the centre right is equally as bad (though there is no evidence)

  24. Token says:

    The ABC will criticise Labor if they aren’t being left enough.

    You know the ALPBC is angry at the Liars Party when we get the APOBTH routine from the chorus of activists.

  25. Up The Workers! says:

    Just look at the way the Left wing media is currently attempting to blacken the name of Cardinal George Pell with accusations of child molestation, or association with, or protection of, child molesters.

    I seem to recall that the Federal Leader of a certain political Party whose tyres are unashamedly pumped up by the media, is himself an accused child-molesting rapist who escaped being tried in Court, on exactly the same grounds that Juliar Gillard has been given a ‘Get-out-of-Jail-Free’ Card by the T.U.R.C.

  26. Token says:

    Up The Workers!, the correct technical term for such a person is “A Senior Labor Figure”.

    One must understand that violence toward women is different depending on whether the person is a senior member of the trade union, parliamentary member of the ALP, or anywhere in the Labor legal fraternity or not.

  27. Andrew says:

    6. The left will fabricate unbelievable allegations against the right where no grounds for criticism exists (see “wall punch in crowded room that no one saw which was unreported in contemporary slanging match).

  28. kae says:

    So many people can’t see this imbalance.
    So many people rely on the captive media for their information.
    So many people in the Low Information Voter demographic.

  29. srr says:

    Wait, Bernadi agreed to a pre taped interview on the ABC? The man is an idiot.

    No, he went ARMED with his own good name, reputation and Web Site for correcting the lies of the MSM narratives.

    Regretfully, the entire thing was pre-recorded and much of the engagement didn’t make the broadcast version, but it provided an insight into just how naive (or deliberately misleading) sections of the media can be.

  30. Splatacrobat says:

    There must be a simple equation to arrive at a score for leftist stupidity?
    (BxH) ÷ (F x R) = S
    B = Belief
    H = Hypocrisy
    F = Facts
    R = Reality
    S = Stupidity

    Example
    Belief: Opposition to halal certification is racist
    Hypocrisy: Churches should pay taxes
    Fact: Islam is not a race
    Reality: All certification or regulatory compliance comes at a cost. Halal certification is a religious tax imposed to benefit a minority religion at the expense of the majority who do not adhere to this medieval belief system.
    Stupidity factor: 4

    Stupid scale:
    1. naïve (cat ladies, mummy bloggers)
    2. ill-informed (Labor voters)
    3. ignorant utopian dreamers (Labor party)
    4. aggressively ignorant idealogs (ABC & msm)
    5. bat shit crazy (Greens)

  31. jupes says:

    The ABC has been known to criticise ALP/Green figures, but only when they can attack them from the left.

    The ABC has certainly criticised ALP figures from the left.

    I have never known them to criticise a Green.

  32. Monkey's Uncle says:

    As far as print media goes, doesn’t the left-wing Fairfax and right-wing News Corp create somewhat of a balance in views between them?

    No. There was a study done on media bias in the last couple of years that found that although News Ltd journalists are not as left leaning as Fairfax or ABC journalists, there are still more News Ltd journalists that vote Labor than vote Coalition.

    It kind of puts all the bleating about the wicked Murdoch press in some perspective. What the left are unhappy about is that the News Ltd press is not quite as reliably in their pocket as Fairfax or the ABC. They really cannot stand any dissent.

  33. jupes says:

    Wait, Bernadi agreed to a pre taped interview on the ABC? The man is an idiot.

    He is anything but. We know this because he absolutely owned Alberici in the parts of the interview that they allowed to air. He must have truly beclowned her during the parts they edited out.

  34. hzhousewife says:

    The editing of the Cory Bernardi story will certainly make the next
    airing of Media Watch n’est ce pas ? /sarc

  35. Mr Rusty says:

    What is the answer then? Obviously shutting down the ABC & SBS is possible (but unlikely with the spineless Libs) but beyond that you can’t really do anything about the rest of the media. The journalism schools are completely taken over by the left and most of the conservative columnists and broadcasters are all approaching retirement, I struggle to think of one under 30.

    The long-term effects of the left dominated media are also rarely considered. Deidre Mckloskey has a great essay on how capitalism and free markets grew out of a change in people’s attitudes rather than specific economic factors. Respect and admiration of entrepreneurs, a belief in the individual and concepts of property rights are being slowly and relentlessly strangled by the insidious MSM. Once you have enough people despising the core pillars of Western Liberal Democracy it just takes a little push for it to collapse.

  37. Toiling Mass says:

    If the ABC wants to have politicians from the right on, the poli in question should request that they be given an unedited copy.

    If the edits make no difference then the ABC could have no objection.

  38. Rabz says:

    Mantary, at the risk of accusing you of naivety, you haven’t considered the millions of illiterate, innumerate, brainwashed ahistorical imbeciles being churned out by our beloved public schools and universities.

    Once this increasingly massive cohort of dunderheads begins to make its presence felt via the ballot box, this country is kaput.

    Da Hairy Irish Ape (aka my husband) did that once, as a recognized ‘expert’. Only once. Never again.
    Small sound bites only, or live-to-air interviews only, is his policy after that first time in a longer ALPBC TV news piece, during which he was hung out to dry in the leftie editing. Pure evil, he says, dey are pure evil. Dey have no interest whatsoever in a fair presentation of issues and facts, let alone viewpoints.

  41. Rabz says:

    Never again. Small sound bites only, or live-to-air interviews only, is his policy

    LOL. My boss has banned me from all contact with the media, following an approach from the ALPBC after a conference presentation I delivered a couple of years ago.

  42. Elizabeth (Lizzie) B. says:

    1. naïve (cat ladies, mummy bloggers)

    Splat, you can’t mean Kittehs from Catallaxy here, can you? You must mean vapid and quivering old ladies fond of their feline companions, I tell myself. I also note that although a ‘mummy’ four times over, and a blogger (well, commenter on blogs), I rarely combine the two aspects of self. So I’m safe? 🙂

    I think those you really mean must be female media tarts from the leftie schools of media arts, and their low-information followers, especially women with many imagined hurts and offences which they are encouraged by the media tarts to vent, and women who think the media tarts lead the way in ‘sharing and caring’ for the sake of the children and grandchildren.

  43. Harpo says:

    6. Always assume that the conservative is motivated by malice and the leftist has only the most noble of motives.

  44. Sean says:

    The thing is the public see through the lefty blowhards. The constant abuse of everything abbott says is starting to wear thin. Andrew Bolt makes a living out of pointing out the hypocrisy, and people start to see through it and no longer listen.

    They tried to blow up the ‘sort’ issue but it was a common sense comment and I’m yet to speak to one person who:

    a) really thinks Hockey and Co were women frauds, or
    b) thinks it was a loophole that could reasonably be closed by the government, and it is not ‘ideological warfare’

  45. Sean says:

    Reality: All certification or regulatory compliance comes at a cost. Halal certification is a religious tax imposed to benefit a minority religion at the expense of the majority who do not adhere to this medieval belief system.

    If you don’t like it don’t buy it. What part of this don’t you understand?

  47. kae says:

    I don’t like it and I won’t buy it.

    But that choice has been taken away from me when there is no indication of certification on the pack, in view, and I must try to find out whether goods are certified or not by contacting manufacturers who are shy about admitting whether they are certified or not as they know it’s to their detriment to publicise their paying for a certification.

    What part of that do you not understand?

  48. . says:

    What part of that do you not understand?

    All of it.

    You have a choice. Make it and stop pretending you are forced to pay it.

    Information comes at a price.

  49. jupes says:

  51. Rococo Liberal says:

    I have been enjoying reading the comments under the myriad of srticles in the Grauniad lamenting the Tory victory in the UK and making suggestions how Labour can recover its position. So many of the rabid lefties complain that it was the right wing media that sunk Labour. They even claim that the BBC is biased to the right.

    The point is that the right will win despite the media, but that in doing so the right has to tip its hat to several lefty shibboleths.

    What we need is a few non-political organsiations to be founded that can campaign for such things and can wirite the articles for the media. We won the privatisation debate and the tx debate because of various pressure groups helping the politicians prove that too much government ownership and taxing is wrong.

    We need to win one issue at a time.

    The accusations abound, but no proof.

    If anyone has proof it is a shakedown, please inform the police. If that’s true, people should go to gaol.

  57. Mk50 of Brisbane, Henchman to the VRWC says:

    The title is senseless.

    The words ‘media’ and ‘principles’ don’t belong in the same sentence.

    hell, they don’t belong in the same book.

  58. strange says:

    Steve, you have done it again. Written complete and utter bullshit. Try opening the other eye will you. The media captured by the left – talk about laugh out loud. When did you last see them (try Rupert) railing against capitalism? Ha ha ha. Keep the laughs coming.

  59. . says:

    When did you last see them (try Rupert) railing against capitalism? Ha ha ha. Keep the laughs coming.

    So what? Packer and Rupert always wanted open slather – so they’re good guys on that account.

  60. strange says:

    Open slather within a particular self-interested narrative. Ever see open slather about New Ltd business practices in The Australian? No I haven’t either.

  61. . says:

    So what?

    If you are self interested and want open competition, you have nothing to be ashamed of. Or are you seriously arguing that a competitor can’t ask for this, only consumers?

    As for “no lefties”, have you ever read loony left Murdoch commentator Susie O Brien?

  62. strange says:

    There is no open competition. Debate occurs within a very limited frame. There was a mutual agreement that Packer and Murdoch wouldn’t attack each other and their related business interests.

  63. Kool Aid Kid says:

    @Dotspot: there is no competition really. A cursory analysis of news sources makes plain the fact that virtually all news is driven by the print media. Murdoch has monopolies in Brisbane and Sydney and the largest distribution in Sydney and Melbourne. He also controls Foxtel and aims to take control of Sky.
    If you have a close look, you’ll find that the deal that saw all this done was Keating’s, with Hawke in tow. There was no Trade Practices inquiry and no test at all of the competition effects. In effect, Keating was delivering on his “banana republic” option. Labor did that because the HWT and Fairfax had published stories that opposed them or questioned them, so Keating and Hawke decided to change the rules.
    If we had regional media ownership, as once was the case, we’d have a different Parliament, IMO.
    If you think Murdoch is on your side, think again. The guy is on one side only, his own. He is perfectly happy supporting Fox while sucking up to the Chinese mandarins. His partners in Indonesia are the Bakries. In short, he’s willing to do whatever with his media in order to get what he wants and he uses media influence to evade the constraints that any less powerful competitor would face. Just have a look at what he did to BSB in Britain.
    The phone hacking by his staff of everyone and anyone in Britain says a lot about how much he thinks he can get away with. His business is totally at odds with individual rights.

  64. This is because they only do it with one hand.

    Ba! Response of the day.

    Then the Green Left Weekly is for you.

  67. . says:

    If we had regional media ownership, as once was the case

    By edict?

    We’d also be a backwater. The US does not have this and has more news channels than you are aware of.

    America has three main national/international free to air channels offering news and about five home grown news channels on cable, plus others.

    Print media drives this?

    Remember they have regional stuff as well. Not enforced by government.

    The internet has also been available to the public since 1995 more or less.

    The idea that Murdoch wags the dog and doesn’t just follow trends is absurd.

  68. JC says:

    Where did this fucking imbecile come out of?

    Dickhead, the idea that Murdoch has any sort of monopoly in newspapers in any regional area during the internet age is laughable. Are you in an 80’s time warp or what?

    If you think Murdoch is on your side, think again.

    It’s not about sides, you mentally deranged numbnut, it’s about the freedom to publish in any form one wants. I’d even support Lee Rhiannon’s right to publish, but firstly she should answer to charges of treason during the Soviet era and if she copped a long jail term then I’d even support her right to publish from jail.

    The guy is on one side only, his own.

    Good for him.

    He is perfectly happy supporting Fox while sucking up to the Chinese mandarins.

    Yea and?

    His partners in Indonesia are the Bakries.

    Not my problem, nor yours you fucking creep.

    In short, he’s willing to do whatever with his media in order to get what he wants and he uses media influence to evade the constraints that any less powerful competitor would face.

    I hope he defends his assets as anyone should. I’d defend mine with the Louisville Slugger if I had to.

    Just have a look at what he did to BSB in Britain.

    Shock us with this one, dickhead.

    The phone hacking by his staff of everyone and anyone in Britain says a lot about how much he thinks he can get away with. His business is totally at odds with individual rights.

    The hacking was wrong although there’s no proof he knew about it. What do you think about government hacking/ metadata collection?

    Murdoch is and always has been a radical, self-interested and amoral person. He’d probably agree with that. He’s also a total control freak. Ask his (once) best mate and former chairman.

    Murdoch wasn’t charged with anything, dickhead. If you have any information then offer it to the UK police, US Justice Department and or the SEC, as I’m sure they would appreciate it. Other than that, you’re just a pathetic conspiracy theorist.

    Murdoch is and always has been a radical, self-interested and amoral person.

    Yea and?

    He’d probably agree with that. He’s also a total control freak. Ask his (once) best mate and former chairman.

    Yes and?

    Look fuck knuckle, it’s his right like anyone else to own newspapers… even Fairfax.

    Oh, Dotted. I forgot to mention. It’s called competition. We used to have it in media.

    We still do, you fucking cretin, more so than at any time in the history of the world. An example is you reading the Cat.

    Now fuck off and obsess about Murdoch elsewhere.

  76. JC says:

    Dot

    These Murdoch obsessives are unreal. There’s Murdoch under their bed.

    They must to bed and continually mutter Murdoch as they sleep always breaking out in cold sweats.

    They’re so fucking stupid they confuse ownership with circulation. News has a very high circulation because they attract more buyers. It”s as simple as that.

  78. JC says:

    When these leftwing scumbags refer to competition just remind them that if they really truly believed in competition, they would be agitating for the privatization or the closure of the ABC. Fat chance.

    JC+Doting: One day, should you awake from your wet dream of leftist Dragon-slying heroics, you will discover that most people don’t live in a world of obsessive ideology.

  80. JC says:

    That’s is it, that’s all you’ve go you sanctimonious dirtbag. LOl

  81. Kook Aid Kid says:

    Not allowed to swear at school JC?

  82. Kool Aid Kid says:

    JC et al. I am neither left wing nor a dirtbag. I have owned and run competitive businesses for my whole life and am currently eight years into my latest. I have the scorecard evidence of a successful competitor in highly competitive markets, mostly in Asia. I do not need to conform to your idea of a conservative, sitting there in your cosy little bunkers in Oz. Nor should I accept your abusive nonsense as any sort of argument. Oh, yes. The Murdoch thing. I have many, many years of experience in doing business with him and his senior managers. What about you?
