This bloke is not well - he's fixated on Murdoch and credits him with super-powers!
Australians have watched with growing anger at what the Murdoch media monopoly is doing to our country. A cancer on democracy.— Kevin Rudd (@MrKRudd) October 9, 2020
Today I am launching a national petition to establish a #MurdochRoyalCommission.

Here are a few extracts from the petition:
We are especially concerned that Australia’s print media is overwhelmingly controlled by News Corporation, founded by Fox News billionaire Rupert Murdoch, with around two-thirds of daily newspaper readership. This power is routinely used to attack opponents in business and politics by blending editorial opinion with news reporting. Australians who hold contrary views have felt intimidated into silence. These facts chill free speech and undermine public debate.
We are deeply concerned by.......relentless attacks on the ABC’s independence and funding.
It goes on and on and on.
Time for Rudd to get a hobby.
