Australia’s new PM Albanese backs climate, defying Murdoch media

From: The Listening Post

Climate was a big factor in the Australian elections despite the Murdoch media push. Plus, the taboo of Palestine in Germany.

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison is out, the outcome also amounts to a rejection of Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp – which backed Morrison and ridiculed candidates demanding action on the climate. Murdoch’s used to setting the political agenda down under. No longer.
