IMC vs MSM
The animosity by Indymedia against the mainstream media is longstanding. I have long argued that the totally uncontrolled nature of Indymedia, together with the visible bile hosted therein, precludes Indymedia from criticizing anybody. This example shows once again that Indymedia is gloating about its superiority as a news source yet simply has no right to do so.
Part of a post concerning Cindy Sheehan's speech in Sydney reads:I had the personal pleasure of meeting Mamdouh Habib. On June 13th, his action against the Australian Government will begin. Currently he is suing the Daily Telegraph for defamation. But you won't hear any of this in the mainstream media.Won't we? NineMSN, News, the SMH, the Manly Daily, the ABC, the Courier Mail, The Age, and The Australian are just some of the mainstream media outlets that have covered Habib's multiple defamation lawsuits against the Daily Telegraph's owners, Nationwide News.
