Andrew Bolt is Australia's most dangerous racist. He is employed by a major Australian regional newspaper and a TV station that broadcasts nationwide in order for him to directly peddle his racist and Islamophobic propaganda. His blog at Rupert Murdoch's Herald-Sun newspaper enjoys the support of a small but dedicated group of like-minded extreme right-wing bigots, rednecks and racists who regularly comment at his blog, and his TV spot is financially supported by various asssorted climate change deniers who have a vested interest in being anti-renewable resources and pro-pollutionist.

Bolt is dangerous because he has a wide audience that his employers see as being gullible to their brand of media propaganda.

This blog aims to expose Bolt for what he really is - a deceitful propagandist intent on dividing Australians by promoting fear and paranoia of multiculturalism. Without the backing of the likes of Murdoch and Gina Rinehart, et al, Bolt is nothing.

Murdoch racist, Andrew Bolt of Melbourne’s Herald-Sun, has been barracking vigorously for Gina Rinehart’s efforts to gain control of Fairfax these past few weeks (see here for his latest effort); so vigorously in fact, you really have to wonder what’s in it for him.

Ever since Rinehart bought into Channel Ten and Bolt got his Bolt Report propaganda spot there, he’s pushed and defended Rinehart’s invasion of Fairfax’s editorial independence claiming that, if she owns it, she can do what she likes with it.

While Rinehart is now the majority shareholder of Fairfax, she doesn’t have the majority of shares so, even if she does get a seat on the board of directors, she will still have the rest of the board to contend with – which is why she’s demanding three seats on the board.

Presumably she’d take one of them for herself, but who has she got in mind for the other two? Is this why Bolt is sucking up to Rinehart so vigorously?

Bolt wielding influence in both of Melbourne’s online papers? Goodbye democracy!
