Federal Member for Fairfax

Media release

Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp newspapers should apologise to Labor senator Nova Peris for publishing private emails attributed to her, says the federal leader of the Palmer United Party and Member for Fairfax Clive Palmer.

“All of News Corp’s Australian papers should print full page apologies to Senator Peris,” Mr Palmer said.

“They stooped to a new low when they decided to attack her in such a disgusting manner.

“The Murdoch press should stop intercepting emails and paying for stories and start reporting some news.

“I don’t think even that fiction writer Hedley Thomas would lower himself to write the tripe that has been reported about Senator Peris.”

Mr Palmer said Rupert Murdoch and his newspaper empire brought shame to the nation.

“The Australian newspaper in particular is just a propaganda lapdog for Rupert Murdoch,” he said.

“Murdoch is an American citizen who for decades has been trying to impose his political agenda on our great nation.

“Australians deserve better and they should boycott Murdoch’s newspapers.”
