We have all seen this quote:
But now, there is this:
text of images: Give a man a gun, he can rob a bank.
Give a man a bank, he can rob the world.
Give a man a newspaper and he can overthrow governments.
While the rest of us wait 4 years to cast our ballots, to choose governments, to have our say in democracy; the rich and powerful play by different rules.
They print front page headlines and entire governments can change. One person – One vote is meaningless when a headline in a neo-conservative newspaper can have more influence over the way the government runs, than every single voter who casts their ballot on election day.
Right now, Murdoch wants Labor and the Greens out of power, and their grubby headlines and their grubby puppets (for example Abbott’s homophobic innuendo against Slipper based on nothing more concrete than allegations) will say anything to make that happen.
News Limited will not stop until Tony Abbott is Prime Minister. News Ltd writers say that democracy is
not sustainable, and they prove that every day, when a foreign billionaire (R Murdoch) has more power than every voting Australian.
