“Tim Blair is a Newscorp columnist”

That’s what comes at the end of this article by Tim Blair today which is titled: “The riot they did notice”. He begins:

WE’RE all agreed then. Last week’s riot in Washington was a disgrace and police should round up and charge everybody who participated in this shocking affront to democracy. On this, conservatives and leftists speak as one. It’s just that conservatives have had a little more practice. We’ve been condemning political violence for years. Our friends on the left, however, are new to this game. They ignored or downplayed riots across the US throughout last year, sometimes hilariously….

Last week’s deadly assault on the Capitol Building was different to riots in Portland, Seattle, Kenosha, Minneapolis and elsewhere, so people keep claiming, because it was incited by Trump. You’ll have noticed, though, that claims of incitement are never supported by any actual quotes….

And they acted contrary to Trump’s words: “I know everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol Building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard.” Presumably his critics feel Trump incited events by rejecting the 2020 election’s legitimacy. You know, exactly as his critics have done for the past four years.

All this is very unusual for Newscorp. Apparently it is the wife of one of Murdoch’s sons who is the rabid lefty who has shifted the whole of the Newscorp orientation and Fox News especially. Such is the way of the modern world.
