How terribly sad goes the right wing drum beat over the lonely death of a widow in Surry Hills who lived in Kippax St. Family provides photo of attractive young woman, and the large scale coverage somehow echoes with the current tv promotion for 1920ies glossy crime show to run on Ch9.
How did this poor widow die alone, her body on the floor for years, before discovered in the heart of the stereotypical cold hard cruel metropolis that has by implication lost it's god fearing, church going, charity supporting, neighbourly white picket fence ways, in a right wing fantasy of gentle approbrium?
Trouble is the News Corp headquarter in Holt Street is also at right angles to ..... Kippax St in said Surry Hills. Probably ten thousand staff passed that old lady's house for decades .... and not one of them knew or helped her, or befriended her? Mmm.
Are we really reading about a company that has no soul and is projecting a guilt about it's own ruthless driven ambitious cold heart? I do wonder.
Which makes me wonder about Mr Hartigan on the 7.30 Report last night. He looked so "sincere", and he's worked in news rooms for decades. Just down the road in fact from the dead lady from Kippax St which crosses Holt St - home of News Ltd in Australia ... served by the surrounding brothels and pubs.
Hartigan says their papers went just as hard at the conservative Howard Govt. That's a lie. This writer is an eye witness over the last 14 years of press including 2 as night shift reader analyst for Media Monitors 1999-2001. Howard was on record that the Sydney Daily Telegraph was his favourite newspaper.
Rest in peace Natalie Jean Wood, you are released from this world of trickery and double talk.
