The goal of the inquiry to my knowledge is to investigate press standards in order to reform press governance for the better. The insights required for this came out long ago – what we have now is a show-trial that has little practical value.

I think the press will always be close (and probably closer than people would like) to the government as their interests are so closely intertwined. What worries me more – which has gone quiet now – is the closeness of the press and the police.

They give their “too-big-too-fail” hero’s a real ticking-off, a vicious dressing down! a heinous tongue lashing, and all in the gaze of the public!! What feigned humiliation. And meanwhile they all meet up at the club for gin later and carry on but with a lower profile for a while.
These criminals should be in court. You or I would be if we’d perverted the course of justice, committed perjury, illegally tapped phones, etc etc.
No law for them, extra laws and taxes for everyone else… oh and you can send your kids of to fill their battle fields too.

That happened in 1928, 1930s in Germany. Fox News and its ilk have created an environment of hate and racism in America. I blame Murdoch’s minions, sycophants who have ignored facts in order to achieve their collective objective: control of government.

A man and empire as big and evil as I believe his to be needs to be taken down. It’s scary how much power he has to shape the hearts and minds of those who rabidly consume the hate speech his networks and newspapers spew.
Mmmm, that schadenfreude is delicious. More please.

Donald Trump is without a doubt a world-class “Bloviating ignoramus”.

But to be honest, the rest of the current GOP leadership, have also earned the right to the very same citation.

For goodness sake…Sarah Palin almost made into the White House and Rick Perry would have been the Republican nominee, if not those confusing debates in which he couldn’t remember…his own name.

Its Rupert Murdoch’s “fair and balance” Fox News that turned the Republican party into the home of the non-compromiser, hate-mongering “Bloviating ignoramuses”. And that’s the whole and nothing but the truth.

Wouldn’t want to change the system or anything radical now, would we?
