Former Australian PM calls out the ‘Murdoch mafia’


Kevin Rudd, a former prime minister of Australia, argues that Rupert Murdoch’s media empire is a “cancer on democracy” in the U.S., U.K. and Australia, using “mafia”-like intimidation tactics against dissenting voices. Rudd says this issue “goes to the heart of our future democracies. Therefore we need to stand up and fight, and fight hard.”
