Your story in Echonetdaily today misses a lot.
In addition to the holdings you listed, News Corp also has a dominant interest in Australian Associated Press [AAP], via which much of our media gains their news stories.
In addition, News Corp ‘journalists’ [I use the term advisedly] have dominant and controlling positions on two of our less obvious, but strongly influential media organisations, the National Press Club board and the Canberra Press Gallery committee.
All of this, together with an aggressive attitude to news dissemination and to individuals who disagree with the News Corp ethic [such as it is], and an intimate, if not to say corporate, relationship with the prime minister and federal government ministers, means that the Australian news agenda is dominated by News Corp, which consequently also strongly influences the news presented by those media such as Fairfax and the ABC which like to think they are nominally independent.
