Check the double standards. Murdoch’s #CourierFail dedicates 3 pages attacking Palaszczuk fmr Chief of Staff, burying the fact the CCC exonerated him. But not a word about Murdoch scoring $17.5 million from Morrison for Foxtel without tender.
The Murdoch media, as usual, is full of crap. Murdoch campaigned to kill the NBN in 2013 with his coalition partner, Malcolm Turnbull, because it was a commercial threat to Foxtel. And then Turnbull killed the NBN (fibre to the premises) as instructed. That's why the NBN failed.
In 2016, the government invented the fig leaf of "covering women's sport" to donate $30 million to Murdoch's Foxtel. Now it's more like a fig twig for another $10 million gift for this failing private business
It's time for a Royal Commission into abuse of near monopoly by Murdoch media in Australian politics & policy. Including Murdoch & Abbott killing the NBN (FTTP) to protect Murdoch's commercial interest in Foxtel from real competition from Netflix & others.
