oh my… Rupert!
When Rupert Murdoch bought the New York Post in 1976, he turned Alexander Hamilton’s fine newspaper into the cheesy rag we have today.
Murdoch imported the sensationalist “tabloid journalism” style of many of his Australian and British newspapers into the American psyche.
The Post was not making a lot of money back then but it had great writers with interesting points of views which could not be found in other newspapers of the time, it had been a New York staple since 1801 until Rupert MURD-ered it.
I stopped reading it shortly thereafter.
Now his folly of corrupting media and journalism around the globe is sending his empire to a point of no return, and it’s about time. Murdoch’s style was typified by the Post’s famous headlines, such as…
In 1980, the Columbia Journalism Review opined that, “the New York Post is no longer merely a journalistic problem. It is a social problem – a force for evil.”
It has always been my guiding principle to remind others of the importance to communicate their thoughts and opinions, thankfully today we have the internet to develop and share everything which main stream media often denies or edits out of our daily lives… simplifications abound, false truths have become the norm when it comes to reporting what’s going on and most people know it except their advertisers who could care less about ethical standards and have supported the enterprises of Rupert Murdoch for too many years.
“All the King’s horses, And all the King’s men
Couldn’t put Humpty Dumpty back together again.”
The reading public will now discover the real story behind a media empire which has operated like a fascist regime for far too long.
