Schapelle Corby - Why does New Matilda censor any further mention of Government whistleblower Allan Kessing? Kim Bax's polite question deleted, then she was banned from making further comments . . .. .
Click on the image above to read Kim Bax's polite comments, now deleted from this recent New Maltida Facebook thread - and below are those words (in blue), with the clickable links . . .
Whistleblower follow-up from New Matilda? I sincerely hope so, considering NM has been completely silent on the appalling case of Allan Kessing since NM last wrote about him in 2008: https://newmatilda.com/2008/05/12/kessing-holding-pattern and that's despite Kessing's shocking new revelations on a high profile case, here
However, other than publicly displaying some inexplicable censorship, New Matilda's avoidance of criticism and legitimate questions does nothing to hide the issue. Editor Chris Graham's big pronouncement on Barry Spurr generated well under 20 Facebook shares, while the uncomfortable facts he's avoiding were recently disseminated over 700 times on Facebook in a single post - and nearly 600 times in another one. And let's face, every Australian in the country has heard of Schapelle, she was Googled more than any other publicly known figure in 2014. New Matilda's Chris Graham and the Barry Spurr issue (worthy as it is to expose racism anywhere), are very tiny footnote at the bottom of the back page of history compared to that . . . and here's another thought, it's even possible write about racism AND the corruption that sent an innnocent woman to hell in a progressive, anti-racist publication.

Schapelle Corby - Kalynda Davis, daughter and grand daughter of top cops gets swift, four-star treatment, while an ordinary miner's daughter is left to rot: Comments posted at The Melbourne Age

I'm very glad this young kid is not facing a firing squad and I'm also very glad for her family their ordeal is over, however I think this new post hits the nail on the head: https://www.facebook.com/PeopleForSchapelleCorby/posts/746038248810972 At the time Schapelle flew, Max Moore Wilton (John Howard's mate), was in charge of Sydney Airport Corporation, and widespread exposure of the Airport's chronic corruption would have been a very bad look. That's why this shocking information: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=514049285343204&set=a.119032021511601.28637.117859211628882&type=1&relevant_count=1 . . . was withheld from Schapelle's legal team (and the rest of the Australian public), at the time of her trial. Further still, Customs whistleblower Allan Kessing (who was also shafted by the Howard Government), says that without a doubt, Schapelle was the victim of insider corruption: https://www.facebook.com/PeopleForSchapelleCorby/photos/a.119032021511601.28637.117859211628882/719147784833352/?type=1&relevant_count=1 And if anyone thinks this type of insider crime doesn't exist, I suggest they read these latest news reports (4 December 2014): https://www.facebook.com/PeopleForSchapelleCorby/photos/a.119032021511601.28637.117859211628882/745709678843829/?type=1&relevant_count=1 PS - And here's the doco: www.expendable.tv

Saw your childish dummy spit about an innocent woman (and the grassroots justice campaign to expose the corruption that sent to hell for nearly 10 years), in your recent article. I also spotted shameless promotion of your Fairfax mate Eamonn Duff and his weird theories, which you say made “Pretty decent” TV drama. Not sure what planet you live on, but on mine Duff’s bizarre tale bombed with audiences. However, I do understand your rage and prejudice, it’s quite explicable. Let’s face it, the outfit you work for is going down the drain faster than soap suds at a Chinese laundry, as punters desert the dull drone of beige hacks like you en masse. So I guess you’re obliged to spruik your colleague, it’s likely you’ll both be in the unemployment line soon - and as Duff’s first (and only), title was an umitigated disaster, I reckon his prospects are dim. He bombed commercially and legally, though in one bright spot I hear he won’t run out of bog roll for ages, as his lame opus is pulped for more useful purposes. Meanwhile, Schapelle’s book sold over 100,000 copies in the first year alone and was quickly translated into six languages. It’s also relevant to note you can still pop down to your local bookshop and buy a copy (unlike Duff’s disaster), because it was recently re-published. So it’s no surprise “Professional” journos like yourself are prone to hissy fits about the lady, because she’s much more successful at publishing than the clowns at Fairfax.
Meanwhile, there’s still massive public interest in her personal narrative, which is why two Governments colluded to gag her (while other foreign parolees in Indonesia can speak out freely). Schapelle’s own story is commercial gold for any media outlet savvy enough to work out the Channel 9’s smear movie mirrored the TV hatchet job on Lindy Chamberlain, which also bombed with audiences (anyone remember Elizabeth Hudson? No?), while the real facts required Meryl Streep in the lead, an actor who needs no introduction.
Enough said, I think.
