After News Corp Australia’s brazen climate denialism during its coverage of Australia’s bushfire crisis, the drumbeat of protest against the behaviour of the Murdoch empire is getting louder with each passing month.

There were organised lie-ins outside the News Corp Surry Hills headquarters in January. Today, there will be another of these in the Sydney CBD, coinciding with an Extinction Rebellion rally in Melbourne protesting against the company’s climate change coverage.

Whilst a smattering of advertisers have taken a break from Sky News, one thing we haven’t seen so far is major advertisers pulling the plug on the broader News Corp empire.
