Andrew Bolt's Blog,20/1/17; No use turning to Murdoch's News Corp globally to get the news. Suggested sources are provided here. Stan Grant the opposite of Andrew Bolt both Australians;


The Wall Street Journal Murdoch's US paper loves Donald Trump

CNN global president Jeff Zucker has nailed the problem in this one statement:

"Look, I don’t think it’s any coincidence that friendly outlets have been the ones that have ended up with the interviews with Donald Trump. Fox News, The Wall Street Journal, the Times of London — the fact that they’re all Rupert’s publications — I don’t think it’s any coincidence those are the outlets that ended up with the interviews."
Be under no illusions, the bromance between Donald Trump and Rupert Murdoch is under way. It is a new relationship, but it has been lovingly consummated. Trump has given interviews to Murdoch outlets and they fawned over him like infatuated teens on hormone therapy. Hirst
Media Sauce: #Trumpistan — news from nowhere

"Lie implies much more than just saying something that's false. It implies a deliberate intent to mislead. I think if you start ascribing a moral intent as it were to someone by saying that they lied, I think you run the risk that you look like you are not being objective." WSJ

However if this is constantly applied to Trump it would make him king idiot which he in fact he is.

 Here's a guide to the best news sources. 
 There’s also a couple of DC-based politics-focused sites to keep an eye on, such as Politico and The Hill. Their coverage is relatively straight, but it is honest and therefore, not pro-Trump.
On the political left, there are several good U.S.-based media outlets that provide text, podcast and video news. You can also find these sources on Twitter and, usually, Facebook too. Here’s a brief list, and here’s a “top ten” list and a longer one and a recommendation for journalists to follow (not vetted by me).
Democracy Now! ‘people need easy access to independent, diverse sources of news and information’
CounterPunch ‘Tells the facts. Names the names’
AlterNetto inspire action and advocacy on the environment, human rights and civil liberties’
TruthDig ‘reporting on current issues that are insufficiently covered by mainstream media’
CommonDreams ‘To inform. To inspire. To ignite change for the common good’
The Intercept 'solid investigative journalism, pulls no punches'
Truthout 'Fearless, independent News and Opinion'
And not forgetting one of the most trusted mainstream newspapers in the world, thanks to its unique ownership structure and independent editorial policy:
The Guardian open, independent, courageous journalism, free of political or commercial masters

The easiest way to follow U.S. news is to download an App called simply “News” and you can then get a feed of both WaPo and NYT stories and many of the outlets mentioned in this piece (among many others). I recommend you get this app and populate it with news sources of your own choosing. Hirst

  Beyond the fact of our heritage and identity should being Indigenous really matter? – ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

Stan Grant so much more than Andrew Bolt as a man and as an Australian. Stan happens to be and knows he's Indigenous and Australian . Bolt happens to be Australian but doesn't really know who he is as he spends most of his energy complaining. Complaint doesn't strike me as a role model of pride.


On Wednesday night I interviewed Liberal Party MP Ken Wyatt for 7.30. This shouldn’t be remarkable but I suppose it is. The fact that it has taken until 2017 makes it so, writes Stan Grant.
