The Elephant in the Room crimes of the Murdoch media - and to a lesser extent of other Mainstream media (MSM) - principally involve:
(1) censorship, non-reportage and
under-reportage, most notably of the huge crimes of the US and its war criminal
allies (12 million war-related deaths so far in just the US wars in Iraq (1990-2011), Somalia (1992-2011) and Afghanistan (2001-2011) alone; see "Muslim Holocaust, Muslim Genocide": https://sites.google.com/site/muslimholocaustmuslimgenocide/ ) ;
(2) dangerous, anti-science, false reportage in support of the
fossil fuel Lobby and climate change denialists, noting that climate genocide
from unaddressed man-made climate change is predicted to kill about 10 billion
people this century (see "Climate Genocide": https://sites.google.com/site/climategenocide/ ); and
(3) perversion of the English-speaking Democracies to Murdochracies (Big Media determine truth, general public perception and how people vote) and Lobbyocracies (Big Money buys government policy), aka Corporatocracies (see Professor Brian Ellis' new book "Social Humanism. A New Metaphysics"; see "Review. "Social Humanism. A New Metaphysics" by Brian Ellis: http://mwcnews.net/focus/analysis/20947-social-humanism.ht ).
The World is acutely threatened by nuclear weapons, poverty and man-made climate change. If the World is to respond in a sensible and timely fashion it needs to apply rational risk management that successively involves (a) correct information, (b) scientific analysis (the critical testing of potentially falsifiable hypotheses) and (c) informed systemic change to minimize risk.
Unfortunately, Big Money typically perverts rational risk management in the Murdochracies and Lobbyocracies by (a) lies, censorship, intimidation and slies (spin-based untruths) , (b) anti-science spin (the selective use of asserted facts to support a partisan position) and (c) blame and shame rather than science-informed systemic change, with war being the most disastrous outcome.
The pro-war, pro-fossil fuel, pro-US imperialism, pro-Zionist and climate change denialist Murdoch media have subverted Democracy and perverted rational risk management in the Western Murdochracies and Lobbyocracies through political pressure, censorship, non-reportage and false reportage, most horribly in relation to war, war-related deaths and the worsening climate crisis e.g. see "The 5 stages of climate denial are on display ahead of he IPCC Report. ”, The Guardian (Australia), 16 September 2013: http://www.theguardian.com/environment/climate-consensus-97-per-cent/2013/sep/16/climate-change-contrarians-5-stages-denial - “Climate contrarians appear to be running damage control in the media before the next IPCC report is published. [photograph of Rpuert Murdoch] Rupert Murdoch's Wall Street Journal and The Australian are providing the media coverage for climate contrarian damage control.” .
People around the world must act now to protect themselves from worsening climate genocide and one of the most effective things they can do to bolster rational risk management is to Boycott Murdoch media.
Boycott Murdoch Media has been created to record the actions and opinions of those who are strongly critical of the Murdoch media empire and in particular those who say Boycott Murdoch Media to restore Democracy and to save the Planet.

The evil of the Murdoch Empire support for the Iraq War is established by the 2.5 million Iraqi dead from violence or war-imposed deprivation since the illegal, war criminal US Alliance invasion of Iraq in 2003 and the 12 million Muslim deaths since 1990 due to
violence or war-imposed deprivation in the Neocon American and Zionist
Imperialist-promoted US War on Muslims (see "Muslim Holocaust, Muslim
). The Mainstream media role in selling the false arguments for war is being repeated today in relation to SYRIA as explained below.
UK journalist Louise Boyle published s report entitled “U.S. backed plan to launch chemical attack on Syria and blame it on Assad’s regime” inn the UK Daily Mail’s Mail On-line on 29 January 2013. The report was “pulled” by the Mail but survives in archived form (see: Louise Boyle, “U.S. backed plan to launch chemical attack on Syria and blame it on Assad’s regime”, Mail On-line, 29 January 2013: http://web.archive.org/web/20130129213824/http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2270219/U-S-planned-launch-chemical-weapon-attack-Syria-blame-Assad.html ). However this report in the Daily Mail evidently incorrectly implicating a UK company in Qatari “war excuse” gassing plans was withdrawn by the Daily Mail and according to Global Research: “It is our understanding that the Daily Mail report was removed following a libel suit launched by Britam Defense and Intelligence against the Daily Mail” (see “Britain’s Daily Mail: US backed plan to launch chemical weapon attack on Syria”, Global Research, 26 August 2013: http://www.globalresearch.ca/britains-daily-mail-u-s-backed-plan-to-launch-chemical-weapon-attack-on-syria/5346912 ). Non-involvement of this British company does not mean non-involvement of Qatar, the Saudis and the US in the recent atrocity. Thus Russia, Iran, the UK House of Commons and many others remain unconvinced by the US claims that the Syrian Government was responsible (e.g. see “Saudi Prince Bandar behind chemical attack in Syria: report”, Teheran Times, 31 August 2013: http://www.tehrantimes.com/middle-east/110424-saudi-prince-bandar-behind-chemical-attack-in-syria-report , “Evidence indicates that Syrian Government did not launch chemical weapon attack against its own people”, Global Research, 24 August 2013: http://www.globalresearch.ca/evidence-indicates-that-syrian-government-did-not-launch-a-chemical-weapon-attack-against-its-people/5346804 , Stephen Gowans, “Accusations continue, but still no evidence of a Syrian military gas attack” in Global Research, 24 August 2013: http://www.globalresearch.ca/accusations-continue-but-still-no-evidence-of-a-syrian-military-gas-attack/5346851 , “Syria: Putin rubbishes chemical attack claims”, Guardian, 31 August 2013: http://www.theguardian.com/world/2013/aug/31/syria-un-weapons-inspectors-leave , “Syrian envoy alleges rebel gas attack, demands U.N. investigate”, Reuters, 28 August 2013: http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/08/28/us-syria-crisis-un-investigation-idUSBRE97R18F20130828 ).
Just like the "Gulf of Tonkin incident", the "Iraqi WMD" and the "9-11" lies (see “Experts: US did 9-11”: https://sites.google.com/site/expertsusdid911/ ), the serial war criminal US Government is still lying and doing "false flag operations" for war. Thus the US Center for Public Integrity and its affiliated group, the Fund for Independence in Journalism revealed that the Bush Administration told 935 lies about Iraq between 9-11 and the illegal; and war criminal invasion of Iraq in 2003 (see “Study: Bush, aides made 935 false statements in run-up to war”, CNN Politics: http://edition.cnn.com/2008/POLITICS/01/23/bush.iraq/ ). 12 million Muslims have died since 1990 due to violence or war-imposed deprivation in the Neocon American and Zionist Imperialist-promoted War on Muslims (see "Muslim Holocaust, Muslim Genocide": https://sites.google.com/site/muslimholocaustmuslimgenocide/ ). The Zionist-dominated US Government is not just killing Muslims - an estimated 1.3 million Americans die preventably each year linked to the fiscal perversion of committing circa $10 trillion to Apartheid Israel and killing Muslims abroad rather than keeping Americans alive at home (see Gideon Polya, “One million Americans die preventably annually in USA:, Countercurrents, 18 February 2012: http://www.countercurrents.org/polya180212.htm and Gideon Polya, “American Holocaust, millions of untimely American deaths and $40 trillion cost of Israel to Americans”, Countercurrents, 27 August 2013: http://www.countercurrents.org/polya270813.htm ).
A search of the endlessly lying and censoring BBC, its endlessly lying and censoring Australian equivalent the ABC (both “ABC News” and “the entire ABC site”) and the endlessly lying by commission and omission, ABC-spruiked, taxpayer-funded, Australian universities-backed website The Conversation revealed ZERO (0) reportage of this matter as established by searches of the BBC in the relevant period for the terms “Louise Boyle:”, “Mail On-line” and “plan to launch chemical”.
Mainstream media, BBC and ABC censorship of the likelihood that the gassing attack in Damascus was a US-backed false flag operation to go to war on a lie (as in Iraq in 2003) is being reported widely (see Newsvine: http://gpolya.newsvine.com/_news/2013/08/29/20250282-us-planned-to-launch-chemical-weapon-attack-on-syria-and-blame-it-on-assad , “Boycott Murdoch media”: https://sites.google.com/site/boycottmurdochmedia/ ; “Censorship by the BBC”: https://sites.google.com/site/censorshipbythebbc/ ; “Censorship by The Conversation”: https://sites.google.com/site/mainstreammediacensorship/censorship-by ; “Mainstream media censorship”: https://sites.google.com/site/mainstreammediacensorship/home ; “Mainstream media lying”: https://sites.google.com/site/mainstreammedialying/ ; “Censorship by The Age”: https://sites.google.com/site/mainstreammediacensorship/censorship-by-the-age ; “Censorship by ABC Late Night Live”: https://sites.google.com/site/censorshipbyabclatenightlive/ and "Censorship by ABC Saturday Extra": https://sites.google.com/site/censorshipbyabclatenightlive/censorship-by-abc-sat ).
