"Stop Murdoch!" (stopmurdoch.blogspot.com) Blog site started only on 15 March in response to Murdoch's Brisbane Sunday Mail newspaper's smearing of Queensland election candidate Pauline Hanson on 14 May with naked photos they later acknowledged to be fake. Latest articles include:

- "Ask 'GetUp!' to stop advertising with News Ltd." of 31 Mar 09
- "If you've been defamed, seek legal advice" of 29 Mar 09 - somewhat marred by inclusion of a quote from phoney US dissident Noam Chomsky, who is in reality on the same side as Rupert Murdoch. See Barrie Zwicker's YouTube broadcast "The Shame of Noam Chomsky & left gatekeepers" to learn why.

31 Oct 2007: Murdoch's Australian pronounces Peter Garrett's subsequently backtracked commitment to sign the new global agreement to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, without the prior commitment of China and the US, to be a blunder. It begins "PETER Garrett's political credentials were in tatters last night after Kevin Rudd forced his environment spokesman to issue a humiliating clarification of Labor's greenhouse gas policy."
Many would have thought Garrett's support for the Tasmanian Pulp Mill and, prior to that, support for Uranium, rather than his policy, now withdrawn, that Australia show real leadership on the issue of greenhouse emissions is what woud have would have done far more damage Garrett's poltical credibility.

26 Oct 2007: As if we have not already been reminded sufficiently, this story restates one of the supposed major selling points of the Howard Government, that is that Australia has historically low unemployment (without regard to the fact that an ‘employed’ person need only work 1 hour per week). Implictly this has all been caused by Howard alone and we are therefore all beholden to return Howard to office. See "Myths of the economic competency of the Howard Government" in regard to this one.
In the printed version the continuation on page 10 has a different heading: "Labor up against jobs hurdle".
