WikiLeaks vs News Ltd: Jail Murdoch, not Assange

18-07-2011 07:23

When it comes to comparing the cases of two publishers of secret information — WikiLeaks editor-in-chief Julian Assange and billionaire media mogul Rupert Murdoch — the hypocrisy from politicians and media is huge.

The key difference between the two is obvious — one seeks to challenge the establishment, the other exerts huge control over it.

Francis Fernie
Last week, a 20 year old man was given twelve months for violent disorder relating to protests on March 26th outside Fortnum and Masons. He threw two placard sticks, neither of which hurt anyone nor were capable of causing harm.

This man, pictured in one of Operation Malone's witch hunts, handed himself in, gave admissions in interview and plead guilty at the first available opportunity. In mitigation his barrister explained he travelled to the demo because felt strongly about the cuts, did a lot of voluntary work and was due to start university in September.

12-07-2011 11:38

The Guardian, along with the rest of the MSM have so far managed to ignore the elephant within the room in the Murdoch press hacking scandal. One would have thought given the latest revelations about Gordon Brown and his family, someone might have asked the question exactly what was the British Secret Intelligence Service doing whilst News International hacked into the British prime ministers private life.

America's dirty war, in fact, targets Blacks, Latinos, Native Americans, political activists, and Muslims for their faith, ethnicity, and at times prominence and charity, exploiting them as "war on terror" scapegoats.

America's media ignore how unjustly it harms millions of disadvantaged people. Instead, they regurgitate spurious high-profile case accusations, always when Muslims are affected. Most often they're men, occasionally women, bogusly charged with terrorism or conspiracy to commit it, when, in fact, they're guilty only of being targets of choice and/or being in America at the wrong time.

11-07-2011 10:22

The focus of development discourse on technical solutions to rural development draws attention away from the real issue holding back small farmers from improving ther livlihoods: denial of their basic human rights highlighted by the murder of land activist Ana Fabricia Cordoba last month.
