It isn't healthy for one organisation to control two sides of a debate

We've said it before - Rupert Murdoch's Australian operatives do not want us to have a Bill of Rights.

Engaging with any of his publications on this, or any other issue for that matter, is a waste of your energy.

By engaging, we mean:

giving them your hard earned cash to read their putrid propaganda, or to advertise in their pages;

using your intellect and time to write an opinion piece which lends them the credibility they don't deserve;

firing off letters to the editor, or;

participating in their on-line forums.

Last weekend 'The Australian', which is so openly biased against a national Human Rights Act, published two even handed reports on the topic of a Human Rights Act, which got some activists creaming their pants.

It's astonishing that otherwise intelligent people keep crawling back to be kicked in the guts by these dishonest, lying turds.

It is worse than useless to engage the Murdoch media. When you do that, you continue to allow them to own the issue and they will always play you for suckers.

2010 is an election year.

If you think Australia needs a Human Rights Act, write to candidates and let them know how you feel.
