Quote of the Day: The Internet and Independent Media


imageThe honour of The XYZ Quote of the Day goes to an anonymous legend from the Catallaxy site. The Parramatta shooting and the bizarre way it has been handled by the government and the media has dominated discussion on social media this week.

This comment sums it:

“It’s not hard to see how the North Korean people get brainwashed.

“If we didn’t have the internet and an independent media, and only relied upon the Government, ABC and Police for our information, we would never know that it was Muslim that killed the NSW Police employee.”
