Murdoch's Stealth "Pay to Play" Global Content Plan

Rupert Murdoch’s Secret “Pay to Play” Global Content Plan:
“Global Propaganda Times Select”

Breaking News

LWOH has learned the code name for Rupert Murdoch’s secret online, global content scheme:

"Global Propaganda Times Select."

Stryker McGuire offers this insightful report at the Daily Beast entitled “Murdoch’s Secret Plan to Charge for Content” about “digital immigrant” Murdoch’s stealth plan to charge for “global” content, just like the New York Times’ doomed “Times Select.” Why DID those bastards of the universe deny the poor, news-starved plebeians the privilege of paying $40.00 per month to read all those magnificent screeds from very important pompous people like Tom Friedman, anyway? The Daily Beast reveals:

“Murdoch’s News Corp. has set up a global team, based in New York, London, and Sydney, to create a system for charging for online content in an environment where consumers have come to expect to get it for free.”

We need news, but who needs free “news” about what’s happening in our country when we “consumers” can pay money for online “content” framed by someone around the globe for les$? The Times of India explains how offshoring U.S. News jobs to India will reach $12 billion plus by 2012 as they succeed in siphoning Tier 1, 2 and 3 U.S. journalism jobs:

What’s more, revenues from Indian publishing offshoring is slated to grow from $444 million in 2006 to reach $1.46 billion in 2010. An estimated 26,000 people work in this space and the number is likely to grow to 74,000 by 2010. Most (96%) of the India-based vendors have capabilities to service the academic publishing segment.”

Brilliant! U.S. news isn’t “news” unless is it is first shipped out and then approved and “recreated” by third world “content” peddlers with a laptop who edit it and transcribe it and have a vested interest in undercutting U.S. journalist’s salaries. How efficient – especially for the legions of U.S. journalists. At least they won’t be burdened by working in a field they studied and invested in. Besides, U.S. “news” is overrated, particularly when we're so collosally in the hole to China that they ought to be its rightful owners and would be if only more people around here knew how to read Mandarin.

Not too long ago I would pick up copies of Mexican and European newspapers and read the same news stories *shock* with different slants. How could that be?

Never fear. Guys like the enterprising, Rupert “Groupthink” Murdoch are here to level out “the news” to make it a glorious, global group hug – a “one size fits all” propaganda pulpit, by and for elitists. Investigative journalism? Foreign Correspondence? That’s so last century…

Oh, btw…which global stooges do you think will get stuck with the biggest price tag for the privilege?

Annual Elite Conclave, 58th Bilderberg Meeting to be held in Greece, May 14-17

The river of Jordan is muddy and cold
Well it chills the body but not the soul
All my trials, Lord, soon be over

"One of their concerns is addressing and neutralizing the anti-Lisbon treaty movement called “Libertas” led by Declan Ganley. One of the Bilderberger planned moves is to use a whispering campaign in the US media suggested that Ganley is being funded by arms dealers in the US linked to the US military."


Leave it to the Canadians to issue the memo about this year's skullduggery soiree. In Greece this year? Hmph. Who'll 'report' on it? The HuffPo honcho. Haha. Makes Sen$e.

Don't you get it? Where is your patriotism? Obama is doing a superb job presenting to the rest of the world his unwavering commitment toward everyone else but us. His plan to take down the citizens of this country is spinning like a top and he NEEDS the support of other soverign nations to relieve us of unnecessarily overburdened sovereign status. Sheesh.
