An article written by Lee Sonogan
Answering the question to this article right away, his empire certainly does. The following is going to be more of a rant about why this is a bad thing and a lot of negative things directly linked to this organisation. Being the most successful media proprietor ever in history, his career is much like Napoleon he took over places in the world and still holds its power. Internationally he owns too many right/left-leaning companies where it seems like he is too blame the lack of pure/real journalism.
outlets/Founder under the same umbrella:
- Sky News
- The New York Post
- Fox News
- The Times Of London
- 21st Century Fox
- The Wall Street Journal
- Too much more to count!
Evoking criticism but serving entertainment needs to the broadest audiences, he was the originator of sensationalism that we consume forced down our throats today. Murdoch with a silver spoon through journalistic integrity out to the window to make his billions. Makes me sick that I want to be a journalist and even pay for university but any decent job in Melbourne would be somewhat owned by this idealogy and would have to settle with selling out/hit-articles which would become expected.
Coming back to the question of this article, rewriting it; should any mass media to at least this extend have so much influence over people and politics? The results are already obvious with everyday people regurgitating whatever they here from the box with precision. As I get older, I believe in the impact of this propaganda narratives everywhere and you should be concerned as well. This billionaire is not for the people in comparison apropos what other individuals are doing; motivated in what is right.
