Will the Murdoch News Corporation Apologize for the Damages Done to Black Americans?

Overarching it is a media machine built by Murdoch that is the most dishonest, unprincipled and corrupt of any media empire in the history of the English-speaking world (against stiff competition). And it is gargantuan, the largest media empire ever.

Karl Grossman, "Murdoch Empire: A Journalistic Travesty," OpEdNews


If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.

Joseph Gobbels, Propaganda Minister of the Third Reich



Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation is finally exposing how corporate greed scouts for storms troops of gossipers and fear mongers instead of truth troops for the 4th Estate, but Murdoch is not to blame. He exempts himself and his executive staff from the crime of disseminating lies, deceptions, distortions, the illusions of grandeur"


There is Rupert Murdoch arriving at the U.S. shore in a 20th Century merchant ship remnant of those 17th century European ships with their human cargo and masts featuring Africans in chains.


It may be hard to remember enslaved Blacks were not all willing subjects in 1619 nor were they willing subjects when the U.S. government declared Blacks free and instructed the FBI's COINTELPRO program to create confusion and chaos and to institute the practice of surveillance, wiretapping, and imprisonment. The Civil Rights and Black Power Movements attest to Black Americans willingness to fight and die to end legalized segregation. But Dr. Martin Luther King agreed with young Black advocates that the goal of their resistance was not solely to integrate lunch counters or public transportation but to have the right to be free--not given freedom!


The media of King's day, advancing an agenda in which U.S. interests took precedence over domestic, civil rights interests, promoted for widespread adoption fear and suspicion of "angry," "rioting" Blacks conspiring against "hard-working" white citizens. King confronted these contrived images of discord: Where, he asked, is economic equality, economic opportunity?   Poverty keeps the would-be working class rider walking to a low-paying job, the would-be home owner paying high rents for a rat-infested tenement if no homeless, and the would-be lawyer, doctor, or teacher without equal opportunity.   Where is freedom, democracy?   


Black demands tried the patients of the State. Offer gold and status within the Democratic Party in exchange for the soul of resistance, and for the rest, COINTELPRO and repression.
