The Cesspool of Words (An Unpopular Opinion)

If there is anything that inspires a dislike of individuals in Australia more than the politicians and the animals it is the media. Here in Australia I have come to have a sour taste in my mouth from the media due to their poor journalism and flashy clickbait articles. It has come to my attention that the media particularly in australia has a bad habit of interfering in politics rather than simply reporting on it. In particular the most guilty culprits of this is Fairfax and also NewsCorp. NewsCorp which is part of the Rupert Murdoch monopoly has participated in such buzzfeed articles as:

It is such articles that insight the rife speculation that Abbott’s days are numbered. Furthermore the media  particular Murdoch’s companies have been pushing to turn the tide of public opinion. It is this that has most angered me. Rather than simply reporting the facts and letting the public decide news companies in Australia are more closely associating themselves with the fake world of tabloids rather than news companies as particularly shown in the reporting style of news.com.au which is a part of the fairfax family.
news.com.au is just one of the many guilty parties that are using clickbait style headlines to draw readers attention straight to the articles that support the political agenda of the company. It is the pushing of this political agendas that has contributed to the downfall of our previous two prime ministers in a massively Un Australian move we as a nation did not allow our Prime Minister to put into effect policies that may have had a positive impact on Australia forever thus eliminating any chances of our country developing into the prosperous nation that it should be. So lets not make the same mistakes that we have made in the past.
news.com.au is just one of the many guilty parties that are using clickbait style headlines to draw readers attention straight to the articles that support the political agenda of the company.
In summary we don’t need to wipe our politicians of the map. Let them work it out even if they are behaving like clowns. Instead we need to wipe our media organisations out and start fresh in order to curb the cesspool of idealogical agendas that the Australian media has become.
