How Murdoch Ran Britain

Dispatches investigates the world of Rupert Murdoch and the influence and political power he holds in the UK.


A culture of bullying and intimidation at Murdoch's News International

Stories of naked threats against anyone who dares oppose the Murdochs are reminiscent of the Godfather movies. One victim of phone hacking, actress Sienna Miller, believes she lost a role because of her continuing action against News International.

Norway massacre - Murdoch's morons strike again

Never ones to be bothered with inconveniences such as the truth, Zionist media magnate Rupert Murdoch's The Sun, part of News Corp(se), decides that Al Qaeda is to blame for the massacre in Norway.

James Corbett on Sean Hoare's Death, Murdoch Scandal Turning Bloody

The whistleblower who exposed the News Of The World phone-hacking scandal, has been found dead. Sean Hoare was a journalist at the shamed newspaper and claimed Editors knew what was happening, and encouraged reporters to do it. He was found dead at his home near London. Police are treating it as unexplained, but not suspicious. Hoare directly named his former Editor, Andy Coulson, for knowing about illegal hacking, which he denies. RT talks to James Corbett, independent news website editor.

Amid Murdoch scandal, Israel backers worry about muting of pro-Israel media voice

Murdoch’s sudden massive reversal of fortune -- with 10 top former staffers and executives under arrest in Britain for hacking into the phones of public figures and a murdered schoolgirl, and paying off the police and journalists -- has supporters of Israel worried that a diminished Murdoch presence may mute the strongly pro-Israel voice of many of the publications he owns.

If 9/11 victims' phones were hacked by Murdoch's people, Fox News is finished

Rupert Murdoch is rapidly losing allies on both sides of the Atlantic, with his media empire under pressure from all sides. Journalist Afshin Rattansi believes Murdoch still has some "ammunition" to battle his enemies.

"[Murdoch] basically had newspapers so that he could manipulate monopoly concerns over his broadcast interests which actually did make money unlike the newspapers. Newspapers are just tools of war," Rattansi said. "It is interesting that he owns these newspapers and they always say Rupert Murdoch loves newspapers."

Media mum as Bilderberg seal world's fate in Swiss secrecy

An invite-only meeting of the world's political elite and financial magnates, the Bilderberg group, is underway in Switzerland. The annual event has long been shrouded in secrecy, something that's given rise to a strong protest movement

The Art of Infowar

If you want to overcome their mind lock you need to destroy their shutters before they come down on you. How can you defeat an enemy with centuries (if not millenniums) of experience in all sorts of warfare and virtually unlimited resources? The answer is obvious, even to someone who hasn't studied the Chinese classic 'The Art of War': Avoid up-hill battles and attack the enemy with overwhelming force where he is weak.

Controversy of Zion: The End of Lord Northcliffe

A lively chapter from Douglas Reed's classic showing the usual modus operandi at work 100 years ago.  The key personages, missing from the history books, are shown along with the packaging and flogging of the lies.  The book is a must read.

Israel investing $1.6 million in "new media warriors"

The Israeli military establishment is once again on the offensive, but instead of high-tech weaponry and missiles, it is using computer screens, keyboards and rapid wireless connections to fight what Israeli military representatives are dubbing a "new media war."

Why No One Trusts the Main Stream Media

There is a Russian proverb:  Где дéньги говоря́т, там прáвда молчи́т.

"Where money talks, the truth is silent."

American Zionism against the Egyptian Pro-Democracy Movement

One of the least analyzed aspects of the Egyptian pro-democracy movement and US policy toward it, is the role of the influential Zionist power configuration (ZPC) including the leading umbrella organization – the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations (CPMAJO) – Congressional Middle East committee members, officials occupying strategic positions in the Obama Administration’s Middle East bureaus, as well as prominent editors, publicists and journalists who play a major role in the prestigious newspapers and popular weekly magazines.

Is Al Jazeera Israel's Secret Weapon Against the Muslim World?

We all want to believe there are truth tellers somewhere in the mainstream media. Sadly, virtually all western world mainstream media sources are viewed as little more than sexed up, dumbed down propaganda vehicles.

The Muslim world has hung their hopes and trust on Al Jazeera as the one bright news beacon for the world-wide Arab community.

Could Al Jazeera be Israel's best kept secret weapon of mass destruction?

Journalism group shelves Helen Thomas award

A national journalism group voted today to retire a lifetime achievement award named for Helen Thomas, following her controversial comments about Israel.

Arab-American Journalists Condemn ADL, Huffington Post

The National Arab American Journalists Association today condemned as defamatory a column authored by Abe Foxman, the head of the Anti-Defamation League, which condemns Helen Thomas and calls for schools and institutions across America to cancel all awards that have been issued in her name.

NAAJA has also denounced Arianna Huffington and the Huffington Post for its campaign of censorship against American Arabs, blocking and editing any comments they view that are too harsh against Israel.

"Conservative" talk show host Michael (Weiner) Savage swam naked with Alan Ginsberg

Born 60 years ago in the Bronx, Weiner has lived in Northern California for most of his adult life...He swam naked with Allen Ginsberg, dreamed of being the next Lenny Bruce and wrote a rambling novel about a half-mad alter ego. His son's middle name is Goldencloud...

He muses about launching preemptive nuclear strikes on the Middle East, suggests gunning down illegal immigrants, dreams of dispatching with "commies, pinkos and perverts" and other undesirables...

Brad Kava, radio columnist and a longtime Savage critic, thinks Savage's ambivalence toward Jews is a misguided attempt to pander to conservative Christians. "He's Jewish, but he always acts like he's Christian," he says. In his book "The Savage Nation," for example, he complains of an anti-Christian bias in America. When Kava, who is Jewish, "outed" Savage several years ago, Savage reported him to the Anti-Defamation League.

Irving on Churchill & Hitler's War

David Irving goes over critical historical issues.  Essential info on Winston Churchill's career and forces that had hands in him.  Offers a very plausible explaination for his about face on "international Jewry" which led him to withdraw permission to reprint his classic Zionism vs. Bolshevism piece.

British aid worker killed by Americans, not by Afghan "suicide bomber"

Yet, inexplicably, the U.S. and Nato both claimed that she had died at the hands of a suicide bomber, who had apparently detonated his vest as he stood beside her when the Seals were closing in. [...]

That statement, we now know, was inaccurate. For three days, the special forces failed to reveal the fact that one of them had apparently thrown a grenade that exploded close to where she was being held, bursting into razor-sharp steel shrapnel. It was only yesterday morning when their commanding officer reviewed audio and video footage from their helmet cameras that he ‘saw an arm throw a hand grenade’ and confronted his troops.

CNN Anchor Booted for Noting Jewish Discrimination in Media

Rick Sanchez, a daytime anchor at CNN, was fired on Friday, a day after telling a radio interviewer that Jon Stewart was a bigot and that “everybody that runs CNN is a lot like Stewart.”

The latter comment was made shortly after Mr. Stewart’s faith, Judaism, was invoked.

CNN said in a statement Friday evening, “Rick Sanchez is no longer with the company. We thank Rick for his years of service and we wish him well.”

"The Great Wurlitzer" and the War on Terror

By Friday, September 14 (2001), the tone of television coverage had moved from shock to fury, legitimizing, even advocating, total vengeance, no matter what the consequences. This was especially evident in one of the worst journalistic innovations of the past twenty years, the use of the sensationalizing banner headline designed to collapse a whole host of events into one, highly simplified frame of meaning. First, it was "AMERICA UNDER ATTACK." By Friday, on CNN, it was "AMERICA AT WAR," complemented by other slogans and banners like "The Longest Week" to resonate with the war film The Longest Day. By early the following week, CNN's banner was "AMERICA'S NEW WAR."

Without saying explicitly that the United States had to declare war against all Islamic nations and peoples, on-air experts from former CIA Director James Woolsey to retired NATO Commander George Joulwan evoked the specter of wars at home and abroad. As Joulwan warned, "Fighting may take place right in our own country. This is not a one-time event; it needs to be worldwide."

The Bomb-Iran Debate From Hell

America’s march to a disastrous war in Iraq began in the media, where an unprovoked U.S. invasion of an Arab country was introduced as a legitimate policy option, then debated as a prudent and necessary one. Now, a similarly flawed media conversation on Iran is gaining momentum.

Declassified: Massive Israeli manipulation of U.S. media exposed

Files declassified in America have revealed covert public relations and lobbying activities of Israel in the U.S. The National Archive made the documents public following a Senate investigation.

When False Flags Don't Fly

Those who have studied history know that nothing invigorates and empowers an authoritarian regime more than a spectacular act of violence, some sudden and senseless loss of life that allows the autocrat to stand on the smoking rubble and identify himself as the hero. It is at moments like this that the public—still in shock from the horror of the tragedy that has just unfolded before them—can be led into the most ruthless despotism: despotism that now bears the mantle of "security."
