Rupert Murdoch News Corp Paper Might Be Banned in Australia As “Porn”

Rupert Murdoch News Corp Porn

 

Continued efforts to filter – and dare we say ultimately ban – websites that contain adult and gambling-related content in Australia could result in the ban of Rupert Murdoch’s prized News Corp vehicle, News.com.au.

That paper itself reported that an audit of politicians’ Internet use claimed the scalp of a state minister ranked the paper as the most visited “adult website” (i.e. porn). 

Say what?

Gambling911.com’s own Greg Tingle has been all over the story of proposed Internet filtering in Australia ever since Wikileaks revealed that a “black list” of websites included legal online gambling sites such as Betfair.

This recent shocker had NSW Ports and Waterways Minister Paul McLeay resigning over the past week.

From News.com.au:

The audit supposedly showed whether NSW MPs had been visiting adult links such as gambling and pornography sites.

However Legislative Council president Amanda Fazio yesterday revealed the audit had incorrectly classified news sites as adult because they contained links to or advertisements for adult dating sites.

Both news.com.au and smh.com.au were classified as adult sites in the audit.

"The definition of what has been classed as an adult site is something we're reviewing," she said.

"What surprised us... the biggest (site) of what is classed as an adult site being hit by the parliament is the news.com.au site.

"Because there are adult matchmaking links or ads on their site, every time someone accesses news.com.au and they go from one article to another, that's counted as an individual hit on an adult site."

Of course this is yet another sad example of what happens when government forces attempt to step in and regulate the Web under the guise of “protecting our children”.

Murdoch’s empire includes Fox News, Fox Sports, The New York Post, The Wall Street Journal and News of the World along with its sister paper, The London Sun.
