Get on Up!

I'm sure most of the ForBattle! crowd probably agree with this. Via GetUp! on Facebook:

"Get this: the TV networks are refusing to put GetUp members' ad on the air. Channel 7 refused outright on the grounds that it was "distasteful", while Channel Ten and Channel Nine have told us directly that they won't continue running the ad because it criticises Rupert Murdoch.

"And in a really bizarre twist of events, Channel 9 withdrew the approved ad from broadcast after having accepted payment for the ad spots, and haven't confirmed they'll refund the money.

"They're giving Murdoch a free pass while censoring our free speech. We won't let that stop us though. Can you help us make sure as many Australians watch this ad as possible? It's already been seen by more than 100,000 Australians online - like & SHARE this to keep it growing!"
 So I'm sharing,because I'm really bloody sick of the appalling bias in our media.
