The infamous climate change denialist Lord Monckton in a meeting with some of Australia’s mining giants. He outlines the need for them (and specifically the super rich) to gain influence in the media, buy out a satellite channel and to create an Australian version of Fox news in order to have a “free and balanced” media. 

In other news, Gina Rineheart - mining magnate and richest woman in the world - is poised to take 2 or 3 chairs in the boardroom of the biggest media corporation in Australia, see: http://theconversation.edu.au/fairfax-or-gina-fax-lets-have-the-debate-before-its-over-7721. Do not expect scientifically accurate reports on climate change in the future.

I’m am now entirely rooting for social media, blog sites and internet news to win the day against print media.
