Excellent wrap of situation here in Australia. There was growing concern that Tech Oligarchs in US were beyond reach of Sovereign Governments whereas Media Moguls like Murdoch, Packer are/were Aus Citizens integrated into Political landscape and never deplatformed any influential politico – they might slant news toward favoured party. Current LNP Federal Government is Conservative and would be most aligned with Republicans. Why wait for Zuckerberg & Dorsey to potentially do the same to Morrison as Prime Minister?

Facebook,? Torchbook would be more appropriate. Facebook’s censorship activities are no different than book burning. During the Epstein scandal, facebook was alive with comments from the self righteous calling for the demise of all those involved. Facebook Africa compiles catalogs of child brides whom they proudly advertise to rich African business men for wives. More concerning was that, even when users attention were brought to this fact, they could not see the hypocrisy in it and carried on as normal. Would love to see Mr Murdoch run this in his rags and put facebook to bed for good. He could… Read more »
