Our media asleep at the wheel

My latest column for online magazine New Matilda is published. This week I tackle the media amnesia of Australia's mainstream press:

"Any Western responsibility for Muslim anger is airbrushed. How quickly they forget the death of more than half a million Iraqi children under brutally maintained US and UK sanctions. While journalists parrot the government-fed lines of the other side's inhumanity, where is the examination of the war crimes committed in Najaf, Jenin, Qaim, Fallujah and Afghanistan itself? Salim Lone, former spokesman for the UN mission in Iraq put it best last week: 'Yes, the terrorists are barbaric? But who is more so?'"

I'm now a regular columnist for New Matilda and my articles will be appearing every three weeks.

Hey, Antony,in the interests of pushing alternative media sources,it might be worth mentioning that Matilda offers a free one month subscription to punters,with no obligation.

You could not have said that and I don't know you or Matilda p.r. Believe or not,folks.
Potential there and support necessary.

Yep, well worth mentioning. Taste Matilda gratis (for a while anyway.)
