Any sensible person can agree that the Daily Tele is the worst of the lot.

From trashy sports journalism (the NRL commentators are heavily despised by most of the sports fans) to silly conservative tribalism which extends to defending friends of the cause for being found guilty of serious crimes in court.

It's somewhat amusing they employ Hildebrand to save face.

Just saw a new global scientific study, that shows alarming and potentially catastrophic consequences , hardly given a mention in the Murdoch papers.Front page has 4 articles on Labor,one on the Greens and it's mostly a fear campaign in border security.The Daily Mail was recentlty taken off the reliable news source list by wikipedia. Is it time for the rest of the science denying papers to be added to the list? Four out if five climate change articles in The Australian recomnend no reduction in carbon emmissions.The Herald Sun is similar.Should we cop this from our newspapers and what can be done about it?
I'm surprised you require external validation.

It’s not a free media when controlled by the gubmint

Hierarchy of Australian gubmint

Top - The actual Australian Gubmint (unaccountable)
-key stakeholders like Rupert Murdoch

Bottom - the elected dickheads (the facade)
-paid by the taxpayer to represent the actual gubmint and their interests


Operating within Australia is Australia’s media conglomerate, which includes Rupert Murdoch’s news media, therefore owned and controlled by our actual government.

Yeah, I was wondering why the ATO were having all those ads on TV stating how great they are, for going after the big multinationals, so us plebs can enjoy... whatever benefit they're pretending to give us... this must have been a reward from our un-elected supreme overlord

If the ATO really wanted to show how good they are, they would be giving the ATO whistleblower "Employee of the year" rather than consecutive life sentences (funny if it wasn't true).

Imposing a carbon tax in Oz IS NOT doing anything about it. There are those with the intelligence to realise this and those who are not. You clearly are in the latter camp
I can see two clear problems with the former camp. The fact that they think they’re intelligent is one.

Australia accounts for circa 2% of global emissions. Cutting that by 30% still wont have a statistically meaningful affect on global temperatures.
If several countries with similar rates are all cut by 30% wouldn’t it have a significance?

It’s not always a Murdoch line; it’s just that Murdoch hires editors who are very much like him.”
Thats BS. See Andrew Neil for one. Not to mention current editor of the Times. The low rent throttlers who froth at the mouth over TWGMP can not even differentiate between tabloids and qualities.

There's always been crap newspapers, and Rupert has collected them all.
You should read the back page of todays Fin Review, it gives a good slap to its 'sibling mastheads' the SMH & the Age: they cant very well sneer... at News ... not for the 'nuff nuffs' that populate the political space & share the mantra 'my mob is triffik, your mob is hopeless', its a challenging piece beyond their think power?
More: ... a proposition, peddled by Nine's metros like metronomes, is clottishly binary.

Having listened to Jon Faine & Barry Cassidy on the ABC (Melbourne) yesterday I'd suggest they read the AFR & have a look in the mirror. The attitude not the content.

& for those who limit their media consumption to those that agree with their own point of view, I'll continue to take all points of view in, select think, & make up my own mind, give it a try !!

Apology, I cant link the article, maybe later.

Intelligent people don't read the Daily Mail or the Herald Sun.
