Fairfax should show some guts and put up paywall

Fairfax reports– The jobs of most senior editors at Fairfax Media are changing and some may disappear. Staff were told on Tuesday that seven jobs could be disestablished and 12 new senior roles created as part of a move to “make newsrooms more local content and digital focused.” Executive Editor Sinead Boucher said the changes…

Don't like the MSM? – try The Rebel

On Feb. 13, Sun News Network shut down putting its 200 staff out of work. Sun News was often called Canada’s Fox News, featuring reporting and analysis from a conservative point-of-view, and serving as a balance to very liberal Canadian news outlets. Unlike the CBC and CTV, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission denied Sun…

Massive slide in Radio NZ ratings

John Drinnan is one of the few NZ journalists I like and he provides an interesting report on the state of Radio New Zealand. A recent Nielson survey shows the broadcaster lost around 70,000 listeners or 13 per cent of the annualised audience for RNZ National and RNZ Concert combined. It was the worst result…

Google search engine changes its ranking methods

I don’t like Google, even though they do some good stuff. Their maps and navigations services and Google Earth are all extremely useful devices. However as a corporate they’re far too politically progressive for me, and I don’t like the way they dominate the web and endlessly collect data for marketing purposes. They read your…

Hooton- Slow week for news so I'll just bash Colin Craig

Matthew Hooton likes to think of himself as a right winger and I suppose considering the narrowness of the NZ political spectrum he’s reasonably correct. In the US he’d probably attract the label of Liberal. Like Cameron Slater, who also refers to himself frequently as right wing, Hooton is really a social progressive, with a…

241 jobs lost at ABC as Abbott’s budget cuts bite

The Australian Broadcasting Corporation has recorded 241 redundancies since the beginning of the financial year. The ABC’s chief operating officer David Pendleton confirmed the figure during a Senate estimates hearing in Canberra. The ABC announced a redundancy process at the end of last year as a result of the Federal Government’s decision to reintroduce an…

Surprise!- Hillary Clinton supports Obama’s push to control internet

The meme is out there. Watch the Democrats and their corrupt media cheer squad push it at every opportunity. Potential Democrat Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton complained yesterday that “different media” are dividing the country, making it impossible for people to even have a conversation with each other. She criticized America’s “partisan bunkers” for getting in…

Submission to polling no way to do politics

I’m not impressed by the priority given to polling recently. Polling is not a positive in the political battle. Its merely a measure of what ideas the voters have digested. If they’re only getting ideas from one side of the political spectrum, then naturally polls will show these ideas as having the edge over other…

Please read- ABC anti-Conservative bias is threatening Australian democracy

I urge all concerned with the political process in Australia and the rest of the West to read Andrew Bolt’s Herald Sun column today where he harshly criticises the ABC for their politically partisan reporting.. Bolt hits out at the taxpayer funded organisation as a threat to democracy with its tribal LW / “progressive” mentality…
