Murdoch and others like him are global menaces.
by Stephen Lendman
Quelle surprise! Britain's parliament discovered what media critics and people wanting real news and information knew decades ago.
Murdoch's world features demagoguery, managed news, scandal, sleaze, and warmongering. He's the prototypical presstitute famed journalist George Seldes (1890 - 1995) denounced in books like "Lords of the Press."
He called them "the most powerful force against the general welfare of the majority of the people." He exposed their tactics long before Project Censored.
Major media scoundrels are villainous global pirates. Murdoch's the worst of the bunch. Fairness & Accuracy in Reporting (FAIR) once called Fox News "the most biased name in news....with its extraordinary right-wing tilt."
Viewing, it added, is like watching "a Harlem Globetrotters game (knowing) which side is supposed to win." It's hard-right, pro-business, pro-war, pro-occupation, anti-populist, sleazy and biased, combined with juiced-up infotainment and junk food news.
