Former rivals to star in Leveson-style inquiry into mogul’s near-monopoly of the country’s media In high public office, both men lived and died at the word of the world’s most influential media mogul, Rupert Murdoch. But now two former Australian prime ministers are at the vanguard of a campaign to redress the balance of power. It is a movement that Kevin Rudd and Malcolm Turnbull, the respective former Labor and Liberal leaders of Australia, hope will go on to undermine all of Murdoch’s international enterprises. The two former PMs were once rivals but are to appear as joint star witnesses at an upcoming Australian parliamentary inquiry into Murdoch’s dominance of the Australian political debate. Both are to argue that News Corp Australia has become the propaganda arm of the rightwing Liberal government. Continue reading…

   Over Half-Million Australians Demand Investigation Into Rupert Murdoch's Media Empire  2020/11/06 14:51:07 Zero Hedge
Over Half-Million Australians Demand Investigation Into Rupert Murdoch's Media Empire Tyler Durden Fri, 11/06/2020 - 09:51 Over 500,000 Australians have demanded their government investigate the dominance of Rupert Murdoch's media empire, after signing a petition launched just over three weeks ago by former Aussie Prime Minister Kevin Rudd. According to CNN , the petition calls for a Royal Commission - the country's highest form of public inquiry, to "investigate threats to media diversity," as well as claims that the media empire encourages " deliberately polarizing and politically manipulated news ." The petition also called out tech giants Google and Facebook over their relationship with the mainstream media, however the bulk of the request focuses on Murdoch's empire. "We are especially concerned that Australia's print media is overwhelmingly controlled by News Corporation, founded by Fox News billionaire Rupert Murdoch, with around two-thirds of daily newspaper readership," reads the petition. "This power is routinely used to attack opponents in business and politics by blending editorial opinion with news reporting." In a Wednesday tweet, Rudd said he was "grateful and overwhelmed" by the response.
