THE ONCE MIGHTY MEDIA

Where is our mighty media when they are needed? Quick as a flash off the mark if their rights are threatened but when Australians’ rights are hanging by a hair – where are they?

Quiet as a mouse while this government transforms us into a police state or, dare I say it? 1933 and the beginning of the Hitler State.

They deny us information on the grounds of “national interest”; use favoured media organisations to broadcast policy matters or “opinion” pieces instead of the once news-conferences/answers; expose us to ridicule from Indonesians; use the Defence Forces for their own political ends (isn’t “turn back the boats” a political promise used to gain power”); I repeat – 1933 and the beginning of the Hitler era.

And so. Where is our once-mighty media – do they stand ready to fight for our rights? I wonder but don’t dare ask the press media (owned by overseas interests) or the broadcast media (controlled by shock jocks) – you won’t get anywhere.
