Britain’ News of the World scandal has been most spoken topic in the west these days. It exposes how the media operates to achieve their own agenda, whom they buy, spying and preying on individuals, corruption among the media moguls, journalists, the police, politicians etc. at the expense of the so called freedom of expression in a democracy”.

 The latest NOTW scandal shows to what extent the media has denigrated in UK. This is not only true with the print media but electronic media in UK as well. The case in point is the latest screening of a fiction film called “Sri Lanka’s killings” in an attempt to bash Sri Lankan efforts to reach reconciliation among the Sinhalese and the Tamils. Even though the Channel 4 claims the documentary to be authenticated, when the images and footage are analyzed, it shows a compilation and manufactured images to suit the agenda of the financiers (alleged Tamil Diaspora) producers, Directors and the telecasters. It is a FAKE. There have been hundreds of complaints received by the Ofcom (The UK Government’s Office of Communications) that it was misleading and misrepresentative and they are investigating into the ethical side of it. But the law enforcement authorities should investigate the financial side of it as to who funded, who benefited out of this Fake documentary against Sri Lanka. Who knows some truth will come out like the News Of The World scandal.

    Malin, in other words, the west’s media run by the likes of Rupert Murdoch are bankrupt, morally. Anything, even fabricating would do for these ‘journalists’ to make a ‘news flash’ and make a few bucks,

    Yes Aussie Media Baron Rupert Murdoch has a lot to answer for!

    British Media used to be of high standards before this guy came on the scene. He had done the same to the Australian Media which also like the British Media used to have high standards. Then Rupert Murdoch started buying up the Australian media bringing the standards down in Australia before his media busineness empire branched out overseas. In the 1970s News of the world was a prime target for him to break into the British media market. He did that successfully, then he started buying up the rest of the British Media and subsequently managed to bring down the standards down there as well. He became so powerful in the UK. No Government in the UK can get elected and come to power at Number 10 without the blessing and backing of Rupert Murdoch!
    That has been the case in the UK since the 1970s.
    Not surprisingly Rupert Murdoch became very unpopular in the UK.
    Not just because of the enormous power he wealds but to what he has done to the media in the UK which he own a vast amount of.
    There were strikes by workers against his media business empire especially in the 1980s.
    search on youtube – The Wapping Dispute.

    Rupert Murdoch also owns much of the electronic media in the UK as well. He started up satellite television in the UK called BSkyB. He owns the rights to soccer coverage and other sports in the UK. He also owns the rights to the cricket coverage in England. When it used to be free to air to the great annoyance of cricket fans in England. Who have to pay Murdoch to watch cricket or soccer for that matter.

    So you see you won’t understand how this world is run unless you understand how the leaders of the big corporations operate. They wield more power than the governments. This is very true in western countries like Australia and UK whose govts are literally puppets to this man.
    Rupert Murdoch is the spawn of Satan himself.
    Rupert Murdoch is not a nice contribution to the world from Australia.
