Australian Media Silent for 407 Days on Julian Assange

The Australian media seems transfixed by events unfolding in the United States. Seemingly addicted to propaganda mainstream outlets like CNN and the Washington Post, they bay for Donald Trump’s blood. Surely, they surmise, the people will not elect him again. This narrow focus sells copy. It won’t change a vote …

Journalism is in crisis and so is democracy

One of the great eyeopeners of the current Covid 19 “crisis” for those of us who still care is the absolute lack of integrity of corporate mainstream media in all Western countries. There seems to be a determination to shape and mould the news to fit a narrative, regardless of …

Kid Gloves for China

Regardless of what you think of the coronavirus “pandemic,” the situation has certainly brought some issues into focus. Perhaps one of the most interesting issues that is still floating beneath the surface can be broadly categorised as China and its influence. The average person is starting to ask really important …

When Thinking Becomes An Act of Rebellion

The New York Times recently took time out to ridicule people who questioned the official narrative about Covid-19. I am one of those people and I don’t give a flying frog’s leg for the NYT’s opinion. This is the same publication that clings to the Trump/Russia collusion delusion and has …

Empty supermarket aisles, a toilet paper shortage, politicians slashing regulations and pumping money into the economy like crazy, CEOS resigning en masse, travel basically ceasing, major sport playing to empty stadiums, bars closing (now I’m scared) and a thousand talking heads insisting that the world …

Shameful, Pathetic & Sad

I’m staring up incredulously at an earnest young man telling me and the scattered “crowd” that the young people of Australia are uniting behind Assange and that revolution of the working class is all but assurred. He means it. I don’t know what he’s been taking, but I want some, …

Have You Come to Love Big Brother?

One of the most terrifying scenes in 1984, one of the most terrifying books ever written is the scene where Winston breaks down and weeps as he realises that he has learned to love Big Brother. The psychological abuse that led to Winston succumbing was intense, constant and horrific. Orwell …

MSM dying by its own hand

Mainstream media stenographers masquerading as journalists  have been furiously clinging to the belief that it was Russia that hacked the DNC  server and distributed Hillary Clinton’s emails to WikiLeaks. This is despite the Forensic analysis  conducted by the former technical director of the NSA William Binney and other technical experts …

Is your news simply a narrative?

Somebody once said that history is written by the winners. A  similar saying could be applied to the news.  In effect the news as reported by the mainstream legacy media is told by those that control the flow of information. It is very rare to get the full picture from …
