Frank Furedi (14/7) and Brendan O’Neill (11/7) assure us that the hacking scandal is an invention of “cultural elites” who forced Rupert Murdoch to close his own tabloid because of their distaste for page-three girls.
Besides, says Stephen Brook (14/7), it wasn’t only Murdoch papers wot done it.
Anyway, argues Daniel Finkelstein (14/7), it doesn’t matter who controls the media because they don’t change views, they only reflect them. Gee, all that money wasted on advertising.
This no doubt ongoing series shows The Australian’s touching loyalty to its owner.
