Right from the start I sensed there was something dodgy about the Australian MSM's coordinated campaign promoting press freedom and the public's right to know. It seemed much more like a massive "cover their arse" file for when Trump, Barr and Durham finally nuke The Swamp and the globalist Cabal and the normies collectively wake up to just how much evil shit the world's elites have been getting away with for yonks, then demand to know why they weren't told about it.
Look at how they've dragged their feet on Epstein. Sure, 60 Minutes finally did a pretty good expose on what the scumbag was up to and the horrendous damage he's caused. But they still refused to cover the Billary angle which was obviously the elephant in the room -- or should I say, "the owl on the island"?
Virginia Giuffre has been living in Queensland for years. So there's long been an Aussie angle on this. Yet until very recently there have been only one or two brief stories about her. Also, Katherine Keating, daughter of Paul, was filmed leaving the billionaire's apartment (intriguingly, this footage was included in Tara Brown's segment but without mention of her name AFAIK). Of course her presence may have been completely benign, but it's still a massive story no matter how you look at it. Why haven't Australia's top investigative journalists been covering this in detail since the Daily Mail (a foreign outfit) broke the story, or even before? Surely this is something the Australian public has a right to know all about.
Clearly our MSM big wigs disagree. Aside from a coupla articles like this one, there's very little about it in the big local outlets. (Citizen journalists, anons and weaponized autists have been doing bulk online research, however. As is the case with most issues these days, they're completely outclassing the mainstream media with their digs, even with the meagre resources they have. My advice to News, Nine, the ABC et al: Catch up, kids, before it's too late! Once you lose your audience to passionate, capable amateurs they're gone forever. You're right at the cusp of that now even though you don't know it.)
But back to the "Right To Know" campaign specifically: Check out this piece in last Friday's Daily Telegraph:
FFS, how pathetic is that? Richard Branson is desperate to be associated with the noble cause of press freedom, and the Sydney paper reckons this is "news". They've even included their slick little campaign branding symbol with the redacted text. He's obviously tryna make himself look like he's one of the good guys opposed to sneaky, secretive government meanies.
To put it bluntly this is just balls out PR and it shows what utter bollocks the whole "press freedom" campaign actually is. If News Corp were genuinely interested in the public's right to know about Branson, they would be doing much more investigation into issues like how NXIVM -- y'know, that creepy chick-branding sex cult run by evil child trafficking rock spider Keith Raniere -- held functions on Branson's Necker Island. Did Sir Dick know what kind of dregs he was associating with?
The Murdoch papers weren't the only ones helping the Brit billionaire portray himself as a mega-woke dude who dinkum cares heaps about democracy an' stuff. The SMH ran a puff piece so painfully right-on that even simpering soyboy Adam Bandt tweeted it!
Gawd but Branson is brazen, eh? He runs an international airline, which has an absolutely yuge carbon footprint, and he has the gall to lecture us on coal. If he truly believed in AGW theory and cared about the environment he wouldn't even be in that industry to start with.
Looks to me like he might just be anticipating some less than edifying revelations about himself or his associates in the future, and he's tryna pre-emptively counter them by portraying himself in a positive light. The MSM, being tools of the globalist mega-rich and powerful rather than those who speak truth to them, are happy to indulge the cashed up Limey with the shit-eating grin.
So-called journos at their ABC have also been poncing about proclaiming their passion for press freedom and the public's right to know. Of course they're all PC lefties from way back even though they claim to be fair and balanced, the lying cowards. But given where their political passions clearly lie, you'd think they'd be dragging an ol' Tory blue blood like Alexander Downer over hot solar panels re his involvement in this Spygate stuff, wouldn't you? But nup, they've been sucking up to him big time.
They've even featured him as a panellist on their flagship lunar wankfest The Drum, an absolutely fascinating move given the context. When was the last time he appeared on it, if at all? Did they ask him about his recent interview with John Durham or even allude to the reasons for it? Not likely! IMHO they're tryna burnish his image as an elder statesmen and thereby make George Papadopoulos's claims seem extra-implausible.
As you'd expect of a Liberal Party icon, Lexie was poo-pooing the Democrats and their impeachment circus, thereby implicitly siding with the Trump Whitehouse.
Subliminal message seems to be: "See, Downer is right-wing, conservative! There's no way such a rusted-on Tory would be 'Clinton's errand boy' like that awful Trump errand boy George has been claiming, now would he?"
But that narrative depends on the ol' ideological right-left binary. And ever since Trump burst onto the stage, that just doesn't cut it anymore. Millions of people are waking up to the realization that the big battle is now between nationalism and globalism; between ethical patriots and an utterly corrupt globalist Cabal.
The local mainstream media are merely the collective cat's paw of these despicable elites, as are members of the political establishment in Canberra and the rest of the Anglosphere. Sure, they're not evil people themselves, but they have long been controlled by those who most definitely are.
My advice to anyone working in the Aussie MSM who calls himself a "journalist": We can all see what's going on. You can't fool us anymore. Your authority, which you never deserved anyhow, is collapsing by the day.
If you know anything at all about the diabolical, treasonous shit that Trump claims has been carried out in this international coup being waged against him, or anything related to elite pedophilia (Epstein-linked or not) then start aggressively investigating and reporting it, pronto!
If your editorial overlords won't let you do this then that's a story in itself, innit? And we definitely have a right to know about that, too.
So, instead of being an Aussie version of Amy Robach, you could even be a dinkum whistleblower. We'd be completely convinced you genuinely believed in press freedom, then.
(Apart from anything else there's been waaay too much recent "reporting" about a fake one. And a change is as good as a rest, as the saying goes ...)
