Sky News contributor Michael Kroger says the entire Senate media inquiry has nothing to do with diversity but rather that Kevin Rudd blames Rupert Murdoch for his deposition as prime minister. Speaking at a Senate inquiry into Australian media diversity on Monday, Mr Turnbull claimed News Corp – the publisher of this article – contributed to his downfall in 2018. In February, News Corp executive Michael Miller appeared before the same inquiry, where he rejected claims of a media monopoly in Australia. He argued media “diversity is not just about ownership”. Mr Turnbull claimed to the inquiry he was the victim of a “ferocious” media campaign which led to his dumping.
