Notes on the master index

This index is computer generated from all the hypertext reference points in the pages of this site.

Australian media

"Australia has the most restrictive media in the western world. Censorship by omission denies Australians their democratic right to make sense of whole stratas of political and foreign policy. That's why Green Left Weekly is a beacon, doing a job of honourable journalism, as an agent of people, not power."
John Pilger

An example of shockingly biased, anti-renewable reporting, I hesitate to call it journalism, from The Australian. The Murdoch media in general is biased toward big business and against environment.
