Murdoch is not the sole purveyor of criminality within the media, just the most high profile. The media in general is part of a vast multinational racket that controls the masses for members of the racket in general. This proposed takeover needs to be stopped in the name of media plurality, media honesty and in the name of honest media

Reporting needs to be accurate! Defaming anybody to sensationalise a story should not be allowed and there need to be prosecutions!

Let's help to advance the case for more diverse, publicly accountable media for all in place of the Murdoch's autocracy, socially damaging political interventions and corporate self-interest.

Because Murdochs media empire is too powerful already. He thought it was ok to hack a murder victims phone Ffs. I do not want this cretin shaping public opinion.

The Daniel Morgan murder podcast, Untold shocked me like no other story and I want to do whatever I can to help the cause. Justice is needed and deserved for Daniel Morgan.

Totally behind this cause. We cannot allow Murdoch to monopolise our media, and must continue to fight for a press that is free and fair!

Lewis Buckingham 23rd January 2018

The Murdoch family should not be given the oxygen of publicity; accordingly neither should their extreme right-wing views be given representation anywhere in publicly available media in the UK.
