If you support this Australian government then then you support Murdoch, as he is the Liberal Party's mouthpiece and the Liberal Party will always work to favour Murdoch and Channel 9. That is what this issue is ultimately about - the Liberal Party protecting its publicity arm:Pattern-chaser wrote: ↑February 28th, 2021, 9:34 amSy Borg wrote: ↑February 27th, 2021, 4:53 pmYou are far too late.

Yes, this justifies my position, of total support for the national government involved. Unelected international business enterprises cannot be allowed to extend their dominance, and that can only be prevented by taking positive action now, while we still can. [Or am I too late with that sentiment? Is it already too late?] So, even if FB are right, and the Oz government wrong, I still support the latter, for reasons I consider to be over-riding.
So your support for the "Australian government" here is simply a vote to strengthen Murdoch's control over Australia.
As mentioned earlier, we can see the results of his control over the US and the UK, having done more to damage those nations more than China, Russia or the Middle East combined.
Parasites are harder to see than overt predators, but they can harm and kill you just the same. In terms of threat to Australia, Murdoch very much dwarfs Zuckerberg. News Corp is the one with the monopoly.
Fair comments. And in the context you have described, my support remains with Oz, and against both Zuckerberg and Murdoch.
