Ruppert Murdoch Media Holdings

Friday, November 6, 2009
When you look and see that nearly all of his newspaper holdings are in all of the British Commonwealth Realms it doesn’t take a diplomat to know who would control Mr. Murdoch.  To explain that statement a little better a person would have to agree that the British Monarchy would not allow this much propaganda control to be in the hands of one person, so the Monarchy thought it prudent to put control of these institutions into private hands. They did this to prevent themselves from having to show their hand, which would show the direct control of the world’s mass media markets and information sharing networks.

  1. Since I am only the second comment, I thought I would send these few words. I am not the only person to have derived that Murdoch holdings are the equivalent of the anti-christ. I appreciate the Monarchy connection. I had not thought of that. Considering all his complaints about losing money, he owns a whole lot of powerful businesses. I think the statement is correct because I cannot see the source of his money. However, I am not certain that the English monarchy is the only monarchy involved.

    keep up the work Justin– I know we disagree on some key items, but there is alot that we do agree on. Chief among them is the danger inherent in Rupert and his machinations…..
