Despite complaints, Mark Knight's controversial cartoon was not found to have breached press standards. And the verdict is not unusual.
This embarrassing international incident highlights not only Australia’s stubborn refusal to act on the urgency of race, but the media's stubborn refusal to even listen.
Mark Knight's cartoon was unmistakably racist, but the bigger story here is how News Corp Australia's unique brand of racism is embarrassing the company's global brand.
We are small nation, but punch well above our weight when it comes to blithe racism.
News Corp seem to have a concerted and sickeningly malign campaign to whip up racial hatred. We need to challenge simplistic notions that such media "reflect" opinion.
