Misogyny lives: just look at the tweets Louise Mensch receives – Telegraph Blogs.

This is a quite interesting article. It speaks to the sexual insults Louise Mensch is receiving on twitter because of her disagreement with the report made that Rupert Murdoch was not a fit person to run a company. What are your thoughts?

Joseph Kony’s Child Soldiers

A colleague sent this short documentary to me highlighting the atrocities that are happening in Uganda under the watch of warlord Joseph Kony. He’s number 1 on the International Criminal Courts’ list of warlords that should be prosecuted for his crimes against humanity.

I thought I’d share this video to bring some awareness to one of the many crimes that are taken place in Uganda. Crimes against women are appalling, but even more so are crimes against our children – the future!

Enjoy and Share!

 

 

Murdoch + BSkyB bid on the slaughter board

MPs from all parties likely to support motion calling on News Corporation to withdraw bid in wake of phone-hacking scandal

My Thoughts:

Honestly, that is the best move right now for Rupert Murdoch. The Murdoch name has been sullied. What little trust the people had in them is now gone. Especially in light of the recent development former prime minister Gordon Brown revealed that The Sunday Times broke into his bank account. I know I am not alone when I say, I can’t wait for the inquiry into the phone hacking scandal.

 

 

News of the World … Axed!

BBC news just announced that one of the most read papers in the UK, News of the World, will make its final publication this Sunday amidst the charges of phone hacking. In an effort to make amends, Mr. Murdoch said that all revenue made this weekend (Sun, Jun 10, 2011) by News of the World will go to a “worthy cause”.


My Thoughts:

Mr. Murdoch is a businessman, and that decision to pull the tabloid was a strategic one. He needs to try and resolve this problem as quickly as possible because he is currently bidding to purchase Britain’s largest pay-TV BSkyB. News of the World is known for having articles on sex, scandal and celebrity news. So it shouldn’t be that shocking to know the company was involved in such an immoral act.

On another note, Britain has the most CCTV cameras in the world. Citizens are monitored 24hrs a day, so it shouldn’t be surprising that their cellphones had been hacked to bleed out headline worthy stories. Having said that, I think it is an appalling and immoral act. Think of the pain the parents of the missing girl, Milly Dowler, must be going through. Shutting down the company doesn’t mean that the practices will come to an end.
