Keith Duncan, Pimlico

Since the inglorious downfall of that traitor Trump, the outrage and crackpot conspiracy theories belching from headline Sky News presenters, (we all know who these right-wing clowns are), has become hysterical; they’re even having psychotic episodes on camera.

The rightist propaganda is now so bizarre that the regulatory authority should consider severely restricting children’s viewing times, unless under parental supervision; and even then, only for short periods to also protect the parents from permanent psychological damage.

It is a great pleasure to know ex-prime-minister Kevin Rudd has recently cornered Sky presenter, Peta Credlin (who maliciously defamed him over his on-line petition calling for a royal commission into ever-increasing right-wing misinformation being peddled by the Murdoch empire) into a grovelling on-air apology.

Another right-wing ideologue of Sky News, constantly venting salacious misinformation, browbeating, and verballing interviewees and defending lawsuits, Alan Jones, has also been forced into a humiliating retraction for making false claims regarding popular Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews’ efficient handling of the COVID-19 outbreak.

Obviously a similar business model now exists between the Murdoch-owned Sky News in Australia and Fox News in America, where a recent, deliberate campaign of misinformation supported Trump’s treasonous attempted coup aimed at bringing down America’s democratically elected government.

  1. Keith contrary to your views that Sky news
    Is some conspiracy theorist at work
    Is insulting your intelligence keith ..
    You are obviously the only person i know
    Left or right that thinks Andrews is Gold standard for his handling of the Pandemic
    He presided over 800 deaths keith ?as a result
    Of lecturing all Victorians with his draconian
    Lockdowns and in the meantime his hotel
    Quarantine procedures were a
    Disgrace keith .what a insult not only from this egotistical control freak but you not to even accept responsibility for over 800 lives that were lost ?? Irrefutable that 98% of deaths were as a result of his government as per medical experts .. not one person ever
    Admitted who gave the contract out for
    Hotel quarantine debacle why ? Well admit
    This and Victoria folds under billions of dollars of lawsuits.. the hide of this !
    To sit in front of the Camera recently and in his arrogance suggested other states should follow Victoria’s handling of the Pandemic .
    Keith if i was one of the relatives who lost a loved one and listened to Andrews speech
    You would want to clock him ..
    Not once has ever said sorry Keith ???
    Yes this is why Sky is so popular to call out
    Andrews !! Even leigh sales ? ABC keith ?
    Got a absolute dressing down from this
    Uncaring socialist creep ..
