VPNs can’t replace Foxtel

Crikey readers talk Alexander Downer, The Australian's ludicrous editorial and the reason to get Foxtel.

Standing up to Murdoch

Roger Somers writes: Re. “Crikey says: comment should not be cheap*” (yesterday). Thank you, Crikey, for a great editorial. How this country puts up with 60+% foreign ownership of our print media by a man who has admitted bribing police and whose organisation has been involved in abhorrent phone hacking and who promotes evil wars if it works to his financial gain is beyond me. I suppose many of us are attracted to gutter press for titillation and if the strong right-wing political biases correspond with our own we buy the rag. But I don’t.

  1. Dogs breakfast

    Spot on Peter Matters. I well remember Alexander Downer almost chortling because he had got such a good deal for Australia, oops, Woodside.

    It seemed to not occur to him that it was in Australia’s interest to make sure that East Timor came out of it with a fair share, or better still, the Lion’s share.

    Smug, pompous and obtuse was our former Foreign Minister
