How to shut down debate, create a definition so broad that any comment can be assigned to it. Use said definition to beat any body that might dare raise a point of view into submission by labeling them racist.

Democracy is based on free speech and a robust debate of competing views and ideas.

Indeed it is, but the notion of freedom becomes precarious when what one person argues a 'right' to express racist views. In Australia, hate speech laws have been framed to prevent victimisation on account of race - KJ

I think a lot of the "problems" or "issues" highlighted by such reports as this come down to a basic lack of understanding of the English language as well as limited lexigraphical and research skills eg the term Muslim is not a connotation of race as is invariably implied by most MSM. This makes it difficult for children who are hampered in their learning by the left wing bias in most teaching institutions in most Western countries now.

It's not enough for journalists to see themselves as mere messengers without understanding the hidden agendas of the message and myths that surround it - John Pilger:

In an era of universal deceit and scepticism, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act

The further society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate those that speak it - George Orwell

It's not surprising that Murdoch's publications are the leading offenders. His racist agenda has been clear for years. And as for ACA, remember the Wawa affair?
