Surprised today, I was, when I saw on the front page of the Sydney Morning Herald (web edition www.smh.com.au) a plug for this documentary: 9/11 Press for Truth documentary. The blurb reads:
“Following the attacks of September 11th, a small group of grieving families waged a tenacious battle against those who sought to bury the truth about the event – including, to their amazement, President Bush. Six of them, including three of the famous ‘Jersey Girls’, tell for the first time the powerful story of how they took on the greatest powers in Washington and won! They compelled an investigation, only to subsequently watch the 9/11 Commission fail to answer most of their questions.”
Notice the title: 9/11 PRESS for Truth. Press = News Media. What are they saying – are they trying to come out of the info closet?? I know this is part of the documentary title, but the message, or co-incidence, is not lost on me. Also, the blurb does not say ‘allegedly sought to bury the truth’, it says ‘who sought to bury the truth, including President Bush’ – that is a statement of fact.

Now, if you are not Australian you probably would have missed LAST month’s news concerning Australia’s richest woman Gina Rinehart trying to take over editorial control of the publisher of the SMH, Fairfax Media. It was quite comical actually. Gradually Ms Rinehart bought shares to build up her ownership of Fairfax and at 15% demanded 3 seats on the board, but WOULD NOT ACQUIESCE TO THE BOARD’S DEMANDS TO MAINTAIN EDITORIAL INDEPENDENCE. The Fairfax Board, which prides itself on editorial independence, called Ms Rinehart’s bluff and refused her the 3 seats.
So who is Gina Rinehart? According to Wikipedia:
“During 2011, both Forbes Asia and Business Review Weekly reported that Rinehart was Australia’s wealthiest person. In May 2012 BRW named her as the world’s richest woman, having surpassed Christy Walton (A$29 Billion).”
So now it becomes clear: Gina Rinehart, heiress to Lang Hancock’s privately owned Hancock Prospecting iron ore / mining empire, who did not even try to hide the fact that she would ignore Fairfax’s editorial independence of its board once she had gained 3 board seats, probably did not like the fact that Fairfax media was starting to report FOR THE PEOPLE and IN THE PUBLIC INTEREST in areas that directly threatened her personal interests: clean energy, environmental management and the control of powerful people over uninformed sheeple.
Finally, I will just point out that the only other publisher of Australian newsprint is Rupert Murdoch. So, IF Gina Rinehart is part of the cabal, her attempt at control in this age of light was, well, clumsy to say the least and the actions of a spoilt brat who is scared of losing her billions when the billions of us who inhabit the Earth would benefit wonderfully from clean energy technology and knowledge of how the wars really started.
