Podcast: why is positive news coverage so vital in today's world?

This episode of our regular podcast focuses on the impact of the modern news cycle on our health and wellbeing, and whether a greater focus on positive, hopeful, solution-based stories could help to mitigate thisWhat are the effects of negative news on our mental health and sense of empowerment? How does it effect our trust in the media?

This is Australian-style sexism, brought to you by a senator and Sky | Gay Alcorn

David Leyonhjelm’s sexist insult to Sarah Hanson-Young played well on a Sky News show known for being outrageousA fortnight ago, the Australian government launched what it called a world-first inquiry into sexual harassment at work in response to the revelations of the #MeToo movement. It was a widely-praised initiative, with an expectation that it would dig into what the problem was, and what needed to be done to fix it.Then David Leyonhjelm, a federal senator, delivered a real-life case study in what the problem was and how women, especially uppity women with a public profile, can expect to be treated. With perfect timing, he exposed the obvious: insulting or disagreeing with women almost invariably becomes sexual in a way that it does not for men. And parts of the media use outrage as a business model, and women – those feminist women – are all part of the show. There is nothing uniquely Australian about this, but let’s say we do sexism with Australian characteristics. Continue reading...

Les Hinton: ‘What’s Murdoch like? I’m very fond of him’

Hinton was Rupert Murdoch’s right-hand man at the height of the phone-hacking scandal. He resigned over it and feels he was made a scapegoat, but remains an admirer of the tycoonLes Hinton used to insist he would never write a memoir. The idea of adding his own title to volumes already devoted to his former boss, Rupert Murdoch, filled him with, if not foreboding exactly, then a certain feeling of futility. “I knew a lot of any such book would have to be about Rupert,” says the man who was for a long time known as Murdoch’s henchman. “But if you’re not joining the chorus of disapproval, how do you write about him in a way that doesn’t sound sycophantic? Who wants to sound like they’re the victim of a personality cult?” He runs a hand over his beard. “He deserves a lot of the criticism, by the way. There are no men who have achieved the kind of success he has who have not bruised a lot of people. He earned a lot of his enemies. But he’s also misunderstood. If I was going to write about him, I wanted to try and do it straight down the middle and for a long time I couldn’t really see how to do that.”But perhaps there was another way. What if the Murdoch years – he worked for the Australian-born tycoon for the vast majority of his 50-year career – were only a part of his book? What if Hinton began instead by describing his childhood in postwar Bootle, on Merseyside? This idea began to take hold even before his traumatic departure as chief executive of Dow Jones, publisher of the Wall Street Journal, in July 2011, shortly after the full scale of the phone-hacking scandal had been revealed to the world (the hacking had taken place in the years when he was executive chairman of News International, the publisher of Murdoch’s British newspapers, now called News UK). “I was going to the Labour party conference in Blackpool,” he says. “I was in a chauffeur-driven car, as I always was in those days, and we went past this kid looking out of the window of a bus. A working-class kid. I felt this weird connection: that’s me, I thought.” Continue reading...

Meet Hillary Clinton's Other, More Powerful And Shadowy Oppo Research Firm

Authored by Mark Tapscott via Lifezette,com, Executives with London-based Hakluyt & Co. contributed thousands of dollars to 2016 Democratic presidential nominee's campaign... Fusion GPS has gotten all the headlines. But there was a second, even more powerful and mysterious opposition research and intelligence firm lurking about with significant political and financial links to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her 2016 campaign for president against Donald Trump. Meet London-based Hakluyt & Co., founded by three former British intelligence operatives in 1995 to provide the kind of otherwise inaccessible research for which select governments and Fortune 500 corporations pay huge sums. Whereas Fusion GPS was created by three former Wall Street Journal reporters with links to the U.S. intelligence community, Hakluyt — with offices in London, New York, Singapore, Tokyo and Sydney — was founded by an enterprising trio of former British intelligence operatives with deep connections throughout the world’s official and corporate corridors of power and influence. Hakluyt is described by the Bureau of Investigative Journalism’s Henry Williams as “one of the more secretive firms within the corporate investigations world” and as “a retirement home for ex-MI6 [British foreign intelligence] officers, but it now also recruits from the worlds of management consultancy and banking … ” The firm’s “style appears to be much more in the mold of the Christopher Steele dossier. Clients pay for pages of well-sourced prose from Hakluyt’s contacts across the globe,” Williams wrote. Hakluyt isn’t familiar to the American public. But what has become well-known in recent days is the role played by one of the London firm’s most visible figures in drawing the FBI into the world of Trump-Russia collusion allegations, a world largely created by Steele in the infamous dossier bearing his name. When the drunken junior Trump foreign policy adviser George Papodopoulous boasted in a London bar in May 2016 about Russian intelligence operatives peddling hacked emails that were damaging to Clinton, his most interested listener, according to The New York Times, was Alexander Downer, Australian high commissioner to the U.K. It was Downer who told the FBI of Papodopoulos’ comments, which became one of the “driving factors that led the FBI to open an investigation in July 2016 into Russia’s attempts to disrupt the election and whether any of President Trump’s associates conspired,” The Times reported. Downer, a long-time Aussie chum of Bill and Hillary Clinton, had been on Hakluyt’s advisory board since 2008. Officially, he had to resign his Hakluyt role in 2014, but his informal connections continued uninterrupted, the News Corp. Australian Network reported in a January 2016 exclusive: But it can be revealed Mr. Downer has still been attending client conferences and gatherings of the group, including a client cocktail soirée at the Orangery at Kensington Palace a few months ago. His attendance at that event is understood to have come days after he also attended a two-day country retreat at the invitation of the group, which has been involved in a number of corporate spy scandals in recent times. The News Corp. Australian Network quoted an unnamed British diplomatic source explaining that Hakluyt “operates in the shadows, it’s not exactly open and transparent and so any serving, and that’s the difference, serving diplomat with access to sensitive information and insight associating with the group raises a worry in Whitehall.” Whitehall is the British government’s equivalent to the White House. Downer’s continued involvement with Hakluyt locates the shadowy operation in the world of the Clintons. As previously reported by LifeZette, it was Downer in 2006 who as Australian foreign minister signed a memorandum of understanding with Bill Clinton and the Clinton Foundation. The memorandum committed $25 million from the Australian government to the foundation for HIV/AIDs programs in China, Papua New Guinea, and Vietnam. A subsequent audit was unable to account for how those funds were spent. Earlier this year, the FBI asked retired Australian police detective Michael Smith to provide information he uncovered concerning the 2006 deal — suggesting the bureau’s investigation of the Clinton Foundation is focused on the controversial charity’s domestic and international activities. Downer is also connected to another firm of great importance in the international intelligence world. That would be China’s telecommunications giant Huawei, on whose Australian board he served for several years, beginning in 2011. U.S. intelligence experts have long described Huawei as a tool of Chinese espionage in America. But Downer is not the only Clinton fan in Hakluyt. Federal contribution records show several of the firm’s U.S. representatives made large contributions to two of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign organizations. Jonathan Selib of Brooklyn, New York, listed himself as a “consultant” and his employer as Hakluyt when he made four contributions totaling $3,200 to Hillary for America and one contribution worth $2,350 to the Hillary Victory Fund during the Democratic presidential primary. Selib also contributed to the congressional campaigns of Rep. Seth Moulton (D-Mass.) and John Lewis of Montana. Selib was formerly chief of staff for Sen. Max Baucus (D-Mont.). Another Hakluyt executive, Holly Evans, contributed $500 to Hillary for America the day after Selib’s June 27, 2016, donations to the same Clinton campaign entity. Evans listed Rye, New York, as home and described herself as a Hakluyt “executive.” Her résumé includes stints advising Vice President Dick Cheney and working on the National Security Council during the second Bush administration. The link between Clinton and Hakluyt is ironic considering the former secretary of state’s strong commitment to liberal Democratic environmental causes. A third Hakluyt executive, Andrew Exum of Washington, D.C., made multiple contributions to several Democratic congressional candidates, including Elisa Slotkin in Michigan and Daniel Helmer of Virginia. Exum served as a U.S. Army infantry officer and as former deputy assistant secretary of defense under then-President Barack Obama. He has also been a contributing editor of Atlantic magazine. The link between Clinton and Hakluyt is ironic considering the former secretary of state’s strong commitment to liberal Democratic environmental causes. Hakluyt’s record includes being caught planting spies in Greenpeace and other environmental groups on behalf of energy giants British Petroleum (BP) and Shell.

Comcast Challenges Fox With $31 Billion "Tanks On Their Lawn" Bid For Sky

US cable-and-content behemoth Comcast issued a brazen challenge to News Corp. mogul Rupert Murdoch by offering a 22 billion pound ($31 billion) cash bid to buy Sky, challenging Murdoch's Twenty-First Century Fox - which is trying to buy the 61% of the company that it doesn't already own - and Walt Disney, which recently purchased nearly all of the entertainment assets once owned by the Murdoch-controlled 21st Century Fox. Comcast's bid comes out to GBP12.5 per share in cash for the UK broadcaster, a 16% premium to the GBP10.75 per share that Fox recently offered for the 61% of the company it doesn't already own. Sky shares soared nearly 20% on the news. As Reuters points out, Sky services 23 million homes across Europe and is known for its technological innovation. Murdoch has been trying to gain 100% control of the company, but has been stymied by British regulators, who have raised concerns about his stewardship stemming from the News of the World phone-hacking scandal and his already vast influence over UK media. Murdoch already owns several of the UK's most widely circulated print publications, as well as his 39% stake in Sky, According to Reuters. The UK competition regulator has said the bid raises media plurality concerns because taking full control of Sky News would give Murdoch’s family too much control over UK news media. The family trust controls Fox and News Corp, the publisher of the Sun and the Times. The Guardian reported that Comcast is also exploring a bid for 21st Century Fox's entertainment assets, which include Sky and the 20th Century Fox film studio. Such a bid could potentially disrupt the $66 billion deal that Fox struck with Disney to purchase the entertainment assets. Sky has 1,300 employees in the UK working in broadcasting and film and TV production, including the firm behind Downton Abbey. Comcast promised that Sky’s headquarters would remain at Osterley in southwest London. In what appears to be a Murdoch snub, the company in its press release noted that it likely wouldn't have any trouble securing the regulatory approvals. "Comcast intends to use Sky as a platform for growth in Europe. We already have a strong presence in London through our NBC Universal international operations, and we intend to maintain Sky’s UK headquarters," said the Comcast chairman and chief executive, Brian Roberts. "Adding Sky to the Comcast family of businesses will increase our international revenues from 9% to 25% of company revenues. We would like to own the whole of Sky and we will be looking to acquire over 50% of the Sky shares. We are confident that we will be able to receive the necessary regulatory approvals." Dissatisfied with the Murdoch bid, Sky investors have already been calling for an increase of 10% to 25%, up to £13.40 a share Following Sky’s £3.57 billion deal to secure the lion’s share of the Premier League broadcasting rights at a 14% discount earlier this month. Analysts have already chimed in this morning, saying they don't expect Comcast's bid to be the last offer for Sky. Hedge fund manager Crispin Odey said the Murdochs will be furious about the bid, saying they will regard this as "tanks on their lawn." Mirabaud’s Neil Campling says investors can expect a counter-bid as Fox likely won't walk away from Sky given how advanced the regulatory clearance process is. Campling added that this bid "marks a floor, not the end to this particular saga." Sky would be a good strategic fit for Comcast because it would allow it to diversify away from the US. While Disney would clearly benefit from owning Sky's European assets, it might conclude that it already has enough to do in the US. An analyst at Jeffries said a counter "well above 12.5 pounds now becomes very likely." Now we wait for Fox and Disney to comment on the bid, and the inevitable counter offer. * * * In a Reuters Breakingviews post published only moments ago, columnist Liam Proud pointed out that Comcast boss Brian Roberts could be driving a wedge between Disney and Fox because it creates a serious dilemma for Murdoch: enter a bidding war for Sky, or re-think his deal to sell Fox’s entertainment assets to Disney. Comcast’s offer will go ahead if just over 50 percent of Sky shareholders accept it. That means Murdoch’s 39 percent stake will not be enough to block the deal.

ЕС vs США: Google предлагают разбить на куски

Европейский парламент готовится к обсуждению странного вопроса: "стоит ли разделить компанию Google на несколько отдельных сервисов?" У американских коллег сама идея вызывает все возможные негативные эмоции - от недоумения до негодования.  Показать "Кузькину мать" Европарламент не способен разрушить Google. В конце концов, штаб-квартира компании находится в США, и кроме американских властей структуру ее бизнеса никто не может изменить. Но в Европе продолжается антимонопольное расследование деятельности Google, в рамках которого политики и чиновники придумывают новые способы ограничения экспансии американцев на своей территории. На таком фоне действия Европарламента являются скорее намеком на продолжение преследования зарубежного интернет-гиганта. Законотворцы могут поддержать идею отделения поисковика Google от других фирменных сервисов. Если это произойдет, американцы должны получить четкий сигнал, отражающий позицию властей Евросоюза. До сих пор центральное место в расследовании занимали именно антимонопольщики из Еврокомиссии. В Америке на выпад со стороны европейцев уже отреагировали сразу два правительственных комитета. Их представители, сенаторы Рон Уайден и Оррин Хэтч заявили: "Это предложение и другие подобные ему идеи способствуют строительству стен, а не мостов.

ЕС vs США: Google предлагают разбить на куски

Европейский парламент готовится к обсуждению странного вопроса: "стоит ли разделить компанию Google на несколько отдельных сервисов?" У американских коллег сама идея вызывает все возможные негативные эмоции - от недоумения до негодования.  Показать "Кузькину мать" Европарламент не способен разрушить Google. В конце концов, штаб-квартира компании находится в США, и кроме американских властей структуру ее бизнеса никто не может изменить. Но в Европе продолжается антимонопольное расследование деятельности Google, в рамках которого политики и чиновники придумывают новые способы ограничения экспансии американцев на своей территории. На таком фоне действия Европарламента являются скорее намеком на продолжение преследования зарубежного интернет-гиганта. Законотворцы могут поддержать идею отделения поисковика Google от других фирменных сервисов. Если это произойдет, американцы должны получить четкий сигнал, отражающий позицию властей Евросоюза. До сих пор центральное место в расследовании занимали именно антимонопольщики из Еврокомиссии. В Америке на выпад со стороны европейцев уже отреагировали сразу два правительственных комитета. Их представители, сенаторы Рон Уайден и Оррин Хэтч заявили: "Это предложение и другие подобные ему идеи способствуют строительству стен, а не мостов. При этом не учитываются в полной мере те негативные эффекты, которые могут навредить торговым отношениям США и ЕС". В США считают, что Европа нарушает принцип открытых рынков.
