“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the media can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the media to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of political parties of the left.”
Take their ABC. No one is in the slightest doubt that the ABC will never willingly say anything that damages Labor, and will say anything it can get away with to damage the Coalition. This is universally known and is only denied pro forma by the ABC itself. The ABC is the propaganda unit of the Labor Party. It does everything it can to protect the Labor party from its own incompetence. And the ABC is far from the full extent of the problem. No one who reads a paper with care is unaware of the political biases of each of the writers. In some places you get balance and in others you get such imbalance that you no longer even bother.
For those that haven’t seen the furor from the hypo-critics at the ‘Media’ and political ‘left’, their own oft-used hyperbole went unremarked by the media. Proves the point where the ABC and Fairfax are the media arm of the Greens and Labor.
What the hypocrites said:
The Labor sanctimony and hypocrisy is sickening.
Hypocrite 1 – shadow Attorney-General Mark Dreyfus:
Hypocrite 2 – former Treasurer Wayne Swan:
In recent weeks there has been a Goebbels type campaign by the Leader of the Opposition, the member for Bennelong (Mr Howard), and others on his front bench to remake their image from hard Right ideologues to soft, cuddly, caring, non-threatening middle of the road type social democrats.
Hypocrite 3 – Labor MP Jill Hall:
They have vilified asylum seekers and refugees in a way that would make Goebbels blush.
Best blog comment of the day so far, from reader Relevance Please:
Goebells, winks, ferals, onions, blue ties, budgie smugglers, Catholicism, stuttering speach, a guinness or two, lycra shorts, baddies vs baddies, static world temperatures, knights and dames, Frances Abbott’s scholarship, tent embassies, shirtfronts, funny walk, bat phones on boats, Canadia, strange laugh. Yes, the big issues our nation faces.
For the life of me I can’t figure out how any one of them is going to effect my employment, hip pocket or future.
I must be strange.
