Thousands march in response to the G20 Leaders’ Summit in Brisbane, mainstream media exposed

Protesters and organisers of the event made their intentions clear during the beginning stages of planning for the G20 that collective responses will be a peaceful, democratic approach to counter the summit. The Police, in a number of press conferences and forums, also agreed that the plan was a somewhat mutual agreement – thus the catalyst had been set for a non-violent demonstration of concerned individuals.

Despite this understanding, Murdoch-lead pieces of propaganda from the press – particularly The Courier Mail – deliberately attempted to construct the environment to fit an agenda-serving purpose. The media, through sensationalism and fear-mongering campaigns, are able to manipulate the public opinion of most events in this country – in means of offering a pre-concieved, subconscious notion of reality that may or may not be true.
