 Andrew Bolt: understanding Murdoch media

22.11.20.  Sky News host Andrew Bolt says a lot of people don’t understand how media works, and particularly do not understand how News Corp works. Mr Bolt’s comments come as he is appearing for the last time in a couple of months; Mr Bolt assured he will be back on-air next year. “A lot of people don’t understand how the media works and it might be good for us all if I said something about it,” Mr Bolt said. “People particularly don’t understand how this media works, Sky and the Murdoch media, or just how I work. “I have been used to critics – particularly from the left – saying for years ‘you just write what your bosses say, what Rupert Murdoch says’.” Mr Bolt said many had speculated “that we get a memo or a wink from Rupert” about what to write. “That’s never happened,” he said. “I want you to know where I’m coming from, here at Sky and with me there’s ultimately an even greater pressure … the pressure to be true to ourselves, to say what we think no matter the cost. “I think that this year, of all years, must tell you it’s true, even our enemies … know in their heart of hearts we speak as we find. “We might not always have it right, but we speak as we find, that’s true here on Sky, it’s true with me.”

    Thanks for the consistency, Andrew! See you in 2021 and I too shop at HN, not solely because they advertise on Sky! I just wish I could influence and reduce the stipend we pay the ABC. Have a great holiday!

    I was disappointed in Andrew stating he hoped Trump would leave the White House with dignity and stop recklessly claiming he’s been cheated out of a win.
    Not sure what leaving with dignity means Andrew, and due process of legal challenges to results has happened before in 2000 with Bush and Gore and must happen now with strange things occurring with voting in swing States.
    Sure, any cheating may not overturn a senility Joe win but due process must take place as is Trump’s entitlement.
    Trump has been subjected to the most undignified blatant 4 years of never ending unfounded attacks by Democrats, the media including tech giants. So no, don’t gracefully step aside and welcome dementia Joe and Harris. When and if the time comes, give them all a dose of their own unedifying medicine as I’m sure he will.

    I,d side with HB. Turning the other cheek is crap. All that will happen is that one will slapped as well. No, do unto others as they do to unto you.
    Except do it first and better.
