“It’s a political organisation that employs a lot of journalists”

THE ABC’s 7.30 is airing a hit piece tonight – yes, another one – this time against News Corporation, Tony Abbott and Scott Morrison. Without evidence, the far left-wing program that once aired made-up accusations against Cardinal George Pell will charge that Rupert Murdoch and the aforementioned LNP leaders have been engaged in a conspiracy to shore up Liberal prime ministers and denigrate the outstanding premierships of Messrs Rudd and Turnbull.

‘News Corp is now essentially propaganda’

While the petition has more than 500,000 signatures, it has failed to secure a royal commission so far. Instead, the Greens will hold a Senate inquiry.

“The critical thing, you have to recognise that News Corp is now essentially propaganda. It’s a political organisation that employs a lot of journalists,” Mr Turnbull said.

Kevin Rudd concurs.

“Whereas once the Murdoch press would generally lean conservative, but see it [as] in its interest to give the other side of politics a half a go, in the last decade, it’s simply been wall-to-wall propaganda on behalf of the Liberal National Party … And [in the US it’s become] propaganda for the far-right Republican Party,” Mr Rudd said.

“Well, enough is enough.”

 
So there you have it. Malcolm Turnbull agrees with Kevin Rudd who agrees with the Greens who agree with the ABC that News Corporation is politically biased. And lots of journalists are in on it. Without evidence, Turnbull goes further, alleging Tony Abbott committed what could be construed as near criminal acts:

“Tony Abbott operated almost in a partnership with News Corp,” he said.

“Their reporters, their editors had access to Cabinet decisions before they were taken, in fact, reported Cabinet decisions having been taken when in fact that [sic] turned out they hadn’t been, so there was extraordinary access.”

Mr Abbott declined an interview with 7.30, but released a statement describing the allegations as “baseless smears”.

Unlike some, as Prime Minister, I never leaked out of Cabinet or backgrounded against colleagues,” he wrote.

“To me, this is dishonourable and a betrayal of the solidarity that should exist within a political party with a shared commitment to the people it represents.

“I make the general point that Australia needs more media outlets and more media diversity; but won’t otherwise respond to baseless smears or dignify a hatchet job.”

 
Well said, Mr Abbott.

    Given its limited audience the ALPBC isn’t even a particularly successful propaganda outfit. It has provoked a couple of knee jerk responses from a piss weak governments (one of which was found to be illegal and for which taxpayers have yet to get the bill).

  3. Some History

    … the outstanding premierships of Messrs Rudd and Turnbull.

    Ha Ha Haaa

    Turnbull was never a builder as he never really created anything – even a policy idea. He was a destroyer.

    Exactly, Humphrey.

    Every day the LNP continues to finance vicious propaganda attacks on it by its own left wing and their men of the past via its tribal enemies at the ABC simply confirms that the LNP believes in nothing and has no standards.

    Meanwhile, the ABC’s comical campaign against the LNP has little traction outside of its Green heartland of 10% of the electorate. Politically, the ABC is irrelevant.

    Agree. Nobody in the coalition ever stands up to their ABC…they happily continue to finance it. Nobody in the coalition ever spoke up for Cardinal George Pell and as soon as Pell was acquitted back in April, Christian Porter moved quickly to release the RC findings to further besmirch Pell. So all I could feel last week when reading about the tacky biased Four Corners hit job on Porter was a lot of schadenfreude.

    And last night Barnaby Joyce appeared on Q&A…to be mocked, derided and smeared…of course. Why? Why do do they continue to legitimise this far-left, progressive arm of the green left?

    Solomon Islands vote to ban the use of Facebook in the country

    The Solomon Times reports the move, supposedly a temporary one, was agreed to in cabinet because of abusive language used against members of government including the Prime Minister, character assassination and defamation.

    Communications minister Peter Shanel Agovaka told the online news site that the use of internet in the country “needs to be properly regulated to safeguard our young people from harmful content”.

    Solomon Islands heading down the CCP path eagerly. Some definite cultural anti-subversion shaping and information operations needed in this part of the world to keep them on the straight and narrow.

    Shut the ABC down.

  41. Cassie of Sydney

    A few weeks ago, on the OT, I posted a piece where I decried how the Liberals have done nothing to curb the ABC over over almost two decades in power. I reminded commentators that John Howard and the Libs had control of the senate between 2004 and 2007 and yet he and his party sat on their backsides and did nothing about repealing Section 18C or dealing with their ABC. Someone decided to smack me down….saying that because she had once worked in the Canberra public service for a minister or similar, she knew better and that if Howard et al had tried to curb the ABC back then, there would have been a backbencher and cabinet revolt. Possibly…she may be right or she also may be wrong, it’s history now. However strong leadership requires hard decision making so my point is that the Liberals, whether under Howard, Abbott (we’ll forget about the Turd of Point Piper) or Morrison, don’t even try. They do nothing to fight the culture wars. So here we are in 2020 and what do we have? We now have an unapologetic, far-left progressive ABC that is completely out of control and totally irredeemable. And they’re brazenly going after the coalition MP’s. If it wasn’t so serious you would laugh…and yet you still get stupid coalition MPs, such as Joyce, who willingly go onto programmes such as Q&A. They deserve everything they get.

    Well, well, well. This accusation is made against an organisation whose flagship newspaper is increasingly unreadable, featuring as it does, increasingly all too frequent contributions by such fascists (/sarc) as Savva, PVO, Richardson, Cameron Stewart and Troy Bramston. Where’s the balance you might ask? How come they allow an occasional column from totally off the planet people such as Gerard Henderson? Shouldn’t be allowed, I hear them say. Heaven forbid, (TRIGGER WARNING) Piers Ackerman and Peta Credlin even get a once a week gig in the Sunday Telegraph: which by the way is the only reason for buying the rag other than the crossword.

    Turnbull wants to get Abbott in jail as revenge, just like the American left want to get Trump in jail. Royal Commission is an attempt at the first step. Turnbull and Rudd align themselves with Biden and that crook lot.

    He won’t, he’s far too weak a character.

  59. Perfidious Albino

    Tony Abbott was extraordinarily disappointing as a PM after showing so much potential as an effective leader of the opposition. That said, he leaves those two whining, relevance deprived, losers for dead. That the Liberal Party haven’t kicked him out after these sort of performances is an indelible stain.

  66. Dave of Reedy Creek, Qld

    What a farce, pots calling the kettle black as the old saying goes. Their AlpBC is a left wing disaster we all pay for and are as usual baying for blood yet again. Do they really live in a fantasy world where they dream they are pure, balanced and truthful ? It defies imagination that anyone could drift so far from reality and set up their own make believe world where they believe they are the paragons of truth and virtue. Notice they attack conservative and patriotic people and organisations with smears and innuendo. Have they forgotten at least half our population are conservative and they actually have a charter they are supposed to follow. Totally pathetic mob really.

  67. NuThink

    Talking to two very miserable ghastly ghosts used to be called a seance,

    Which reminds me of a joke from many moons ago.
    A man was bothered by a poltergeist for many years, until his frustration reached boiling point and he packed up his car with his belongings, then set fire to his house. He stood there watching the flames , relieved and smiling, and the neighbours ran up and asked what was happening. The window of his car rolled down and the poltergeist leaned out and said “We are moving”.

    Turnbull (potentially a great Prime Minister)”

    Turdbull was never a potentially great PM.

  74. Mother Lode

    KRudd and Trumble were leaders not only rejected by voters but their own parties. Mentally and emotionally unstable, driven by ego, riven by inadequacy. Small men who think great men are great by seeing others as expendable objects. Mere counters in a great man’s game.

    Krudd got in initially by pretending to be like Howard – a safe set of hands who kept a lid on the budget and the borders secure. And he had a vision.

    When he got in he held his 2020 summit to provide the vision. He opened the borders, and in response to the GFC (which hardly impacted Australia but deeply impressed j’ismists) he unleashed an orgy of spending – a stimulus program he said – that has hardly abated. He kowtowed to the rat-f*ckers and dismissed our allies.

    After being dumped by his own party as PM he determined to undermine the new leadership – so much was his ego stung. A petty and unedifying display. After Gillard’s fall from grace they put him back in hoping he could re-ignite the enthusiasm he once commanded, but the voters weren’t falling for it, so he lost in spectacular fashion, taking what was a razor thin majority and turning it into a Liberal landslide.

    Trumble was a warmy zealot whose progressive policies repulsed the party’s base. He turned the party into the second choice for Labor voters, who nevertheless opted for their first choice, meaning the Libs had no support from their own base or anyone else’s. So cack-handed was he that he triggered a party ballot and lost. The guy who replaced him reinvigorated the party and re-energised the base, and led the party to a thumping victory over the brooding petulant Krudd.

    From that moment Trumble worked in his turn to undermine the new leader, making controversial remarks to smother any good stories for the Libs (and the PM) and posing as the compassionate Liberal, appearing all over the ABC and courting the left wing vote. He managed to unseat Abbott and went sailing into an election with daring casualness, usually calling a lid at midday. In the election he lost the large majority and the LNP only remained in power because the Nats picked up a seat with Nats’ policies. Trumble’s Liberal policies had predictably seen a hollowing out of Liberal support without attracting any from elsewhere.

    Once again the party dumped him. Vengeful to the last, he still had one chance to injure the party and engineered it so an unimpressive milquetoast took over. His last act of spite.

    Finally, I must say this: It was with sheer delight that I saw Trumble strutting about posing as the leader among leaders who understood business and finance – he had made his money in the private sector after all. Only to have the US elect a President whose stature as a businessman reduced him a minnow. All those mean people taking away his specialness!

    ‘ Just remember Frank Kelly on Radio National proudly boasting that she/he was an activist.’

    So far as I am aware, Kelly has no journalistic training or qualifications. She was formerly ‘Student Activities Officer’ at Latrobe University a third rate academy of which I am not proud to be an alumnus. How such a person becomes a public intellectual escapes me.

    areff raised the point yesterday, in another thread, about the vulnerability of the ABC in this area. Most budget-funded Commonwealth agencies are required to have systems and processes in place to ensure recruitment and promotion based on competence and merit and that prevent patronage and favouritism. This is because taxpayers money is required, by law, to be spent efficiently, effectively, ethically and economically. Why should the budget-funded funded ABC be exempted?

  77. Simon Morgan

    I wonder if these two clowns understand that Sky and the Murdoch press are COMMERCIAL enterprises?

    I don’t expect them to ever look at the elephant in the room – the ABC – but surely a basic understanding of the difference between a state-owned organization and one that has to rely on it’s products being commercially viable can be expected?

  78. Cassie of Sydney

    “He turned the party into the second choice for Labor voters, who nevertheless opted for their first choice, meaning the Libs had no support from their own base or anyone else’s. “

    Living in the inner-city as I do and having quite a few progressive acquaintances, I clearly remember them after September 2015 squealing with delight that Turdbull was PM and regaling me as to how great and sublime he was as compared to the evil debbil Abbott. I knew that none of them (and I mean none) would ever vote Liberal in a hissy fit even with their golden boy as leader. Always intrigued, I remember going into the office on the Monday after the 2016 election disaster and discussing the election outcome with three of these acquaintances . I asked each one if they voted for their golden boy and the reply was the same….”oh I really like Malcolm but I just could not bring myself to vote Liberal”. I just laughed and laughed, their responses summed up so exquisitely the disaster that was Turdbull. The only people who liked him would never ever vote for him.

    I still find it hard to forgive the Liberal party for what they did in September 2015. …in fact I don’t think I ever will. Maybe if they were to formally expel the loathsome Turd…but they won’t because they are spineless cucks.

    I knew that none of them (and I mean none) would ever vote Liberal in a hissy fit even with their golden boy as leader.

    I asked a group of my inner city dwelling collectivist friends in late 2015 (when they were crowing about the dumping of Abbott) if any of them were going to vote for the gliberals given that fat useless narcissist had been installed as PM. “Of course not!” was the uniform reply.

  85. Slim Cognito

    I’m sure that someone already pointed it out but the main issue seems to be that no one is forced to consume or pay for Newscorp. If you don’t agree with what they say, don’t pay for it. If there is no market for what they produce it will die a natural death.

    On the other hand, anyone who pays tax is contributing to the ABC. Yet they do not have the choice of withdrawing their support. There is a very limited market for their product, yet they still survive.

    This is what I have a hard time with.

    I first saw through him as the leftist Trojan Horse and POS he is about 2008 – years before he became PM.

    Cassie, I remember various polls showing that Turnbull would be a more popular PM than Tony Abbott.
    Maybe so, but the polls were worthless and meaningless IMO, because naturally Labor and Green supporters who were polled would prefer the leftist Turnbull to the conservative Abbott – but virtually none of them would actually vote for a Turnbull LNP government.

    “The critical thing, you have to recognise that ABC is now essentially propaganda. It’s a political organisation that employs a lot of journalists,” Mr Turnbull said.

    Kevin Rudd concurs.

    Glad to see someone fixed it. Krudd and Turdbull are vindictive and out for revenge for the objective reporting of their own treachery. Krudd initiated the petition during the Queensland state election, fearing that the truths being told by the Murdoch would swing the election away from the Pałaszczuk government, but the ALP won with a larger margin.

    Cleary taking out the Murdoch media reduces diversity – but these leftist mongrels want to silence the voices they disagree with – Krudd and Turdbull are the undemocratic ones, and they need to be told that in no uncertain terms.

    How about the Liberal Democrats initiate a petition to investigate the ABC – I’d sign that!

    And the eternally stupid effing Liberals agreed to support the senate inquiry into News Corp.

    Cassie, could you imagine Labor and the Greens supporting an inquiry or a RC into the ABC?
    It would never happen in a million years!
    Why oh why, do the Libs support or do nothing about their bitter ideological enemies, the ABC, but back inquiries into ostensible supporters, or at least a far more balanced media organisation like News Corp?

    Hopefully, that is so they can find nothing and call out the stupid effing leftists for the pricks they are. But I’m not counting on it.

    I’m continually astounded by the abusive crap put out by the likes of Krudd and Turdbull, but no-one on the centre or right of politics (or lame-stream media) swings back at them for their obnoxious (and noxious) vindictiveness. They are has-beens (or never-were’s) and have been personally responsible for over a decade of political and social instability in this country, and they continue. Their time is over and done, and they should just sail off into the sunset, never to be seen or heard again.

    Mr Abbott declined an interview with 7.30, but released a statement describing the allegations as “baseless smears”.

    “Unlike some, as Prime Minister, I never leaked out of Cabinet or backgrounded against colleagues,” he wrote.

    “To me, this is dishonourable and a betrayal of the solidarity that should exist within a political party with a shared commitment to the people it represents.

    “I make the general point that Australia needs more media outlets and more media diversity; but won’t otherwise respond to baseless smears or dignify a hatchet job.”

    Absolute gold! +1000
