Murdoch's secret ABC attack
To Minister Conroy and the Labor caucus::
“We urge you not to reward Australian News Channel with the Australia Network contract. Australia’s national interests are not served by handing the operation of our international broadcaster to a company linked to Rupert Murdoch and his deceitful practices. It’s the ABC that can best ensure a strong and independent Australian news voice in our region.”

Just last week, we called on you to help save the media inquiry from Murdoch's meddling -- and thousands of you responded. Now, we desperately need to come together again. Murdoch’s mouthpiece The Australian has been leaking details of insider support for Murdoch in a blatant attempt to force Labor into backing his bid. Conroy knows that giving the network to Murdoch would greatly increase the media mogul’s corrupting influence and hurt the ABC, and is looking for a way out.
Together, we can give Conroy the public mandate he needs to reject Murdoch’s power grab and award the contract to the ABC. Send a message to Conroy telling him that Australians don't want this dodgy deal -- sign now and then forward to everyone!
