Doug Cameron: Murdoch press a threat to democracy

In an interview from November 2011, Senator Doug Cameron made the following statements regarding the undue influence of the Murdoch media on Australian politics, even though it was six months ago, as time goes on, these comments are becoming more salient.

The Murdoch press are an absolute disgrace, they are a threat to democracy in this country and we should absolutely be having a look at them.

They run unsubstantiated stories. I’m saying it’s a fabrication. They run unsubstantiated stories in relation to the leadership of the party.

We should not be diverted by the Murdoch press and their attempt to destabilise this government. This is a good government. It doesn’t suit Rupert Murdoch and his minions and we are prepared to take that on.

Day in and day out the Murdoch press are putting false headlines out there. They are misrepresenting the position of the government. Day in and day out it’s absolute lies and nonsense that is getting printed in the Murdoch press, and that’s the issue.

You can’t tell me that the culture that permeates the Murdoch press internationally has not permeated Australia. I don’t buy that for one minute.

Doug Cameron takes on Liberal Ideological Nonsense Of Class War (video)

If that’s classwarfare, I’m guilty, I’m in it… I plead guilty to that, I’ll always plead guilty to looking after ordinary people in this country.

If it’s Gina Rinehart, or Twiggy Forrest, or Clive Palmer against the general public, the Coalition are on the side of the mining magnates everyday, everyday.

Doug Cameron, stands up for human rights

Doug Cameron, Senator for NSW
To a journalist (15 November 2010):

We still need to make that final change where rights are equal. I think that the Marriage Act should change… This is a national issue of human rights.
Source: here

Two petitions to the Senate to support marriage equality
from AME: Australian Marriage Equality
and directly from the House Of Representatives website Inquiry into the Marriage Equality Amendment Bill 2012 and the Marriage Amendment Bill 2012

These are being petition-bombed (large organised groups answering enmasse to deliberately skewer the results), if you support human rights, equality and fairness, please consider these.

Funniest Home Movies – Doug Cameron

Was it only last year when Senator Cameron read this letter out?

Sigh!!! those were the days, when politics was light-hearted and fun… or at least, not trying to recreate a Quentin Tarantino movie.

Now politicians (on the Right) just make allusions to death threats and causing physical harm to their opponents.
