After weeks of hue and cry about the Murdoch gate there seems to be a prevalent unwritten agreement among the British main stream media to ignore a fact.

While the British ordinary citizens are buried under piles of news about Murdoch’s empire hacking into the voicemails of the royal family , celebrities, high-ranking politicians, a murdered teenager and the relatives of the dead soldiers , almost all media fail to report Murdoch’s worst allegation : the endorsement of illegal war in Iraq.

Media observers accuse Murdoch’s newspapers of being the main newspaper propagandizing the fraudulent military conflicts.

The media tycoon had given his full support to the illegal Iraq war, and many times praised former Prime Minister Tony Blair for his courage saying: “I think Tony is being extraordinarily courageous and strong on what his stance is in the Middle East.”

News International papers began doing their best convincing people about what they called the grave threat of Saddam Hussein weapons, even two years before the publication of the government’s dossier on Iraq’s non-existent Weapon of Mass Destruction.

As the UK government was beating the drums of the war louder in 2003 , Murdoch’s newspaper initiated even more pro-war propaganda. Murdoch who was the strong supporter of attacking Iraq and ousting Saddam, even said:”The greatest thing to come out of this for the world economy, if you could put it that way, would be $20 a barrel for oil. That’s bigger than any tax cut in the any country.” However after the invasion News International never apologized for the false information they had published pushing the economy to the brink of collapse.

Murdoch’s papers and TV channels have been backing all the wars imposed by the Britain in the last thirty years and has continued backing the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Murdoch’s media empire has even prepared the ground to keep the war in Libya going.

One may ask which one is more guilty? The Murdoch’s corporation or the other British media which are deliberately turning a close eye to his roles in recent wars?
