Media reporter David Folenflik is causing a bit of a stir with his book, “Murdoch’s World”, before it has even come out. Excerpts released from it in advance reveal that Rupert Murdoch’s shameless PR department has employed professional trolls to attack and undermine blogs critical of Murdoch’s rancid, fact-free Fox News. Murdoch, an obvious high-profile sociopath whose deceitful rags have dragged journalism in the English-speaking world into the gutter over the past 20-30 years, employs the exact same techniques that Luke Preece has used against the blog. Both spring from the immoral, muck-racking, lowest-of-the-low mindset of the sociopath. (I know what we will do- hack the phones of mourning families to sell a few more newspapers etc.) Here is a good summary of Folenflik’s revelations:
Fox News’ public relations staffers used an elaborate series of dummy accounts to fill the comments sections of critical blog posts with pro-Fox arguments. In a chapter focusing on how Fox utilized its notoriously ruthless public relations department in the mid-to-late 00’s, Folkenflik reports that Fox’s PR staffers would “post pro-Fox rants” in the comments sections of “negative and even neutral” blog posts written about the network. According to Folkenflik, the staffers used various tactics to cover their tracks, including setting up wireless broadband connections that “could not be traced back” to the network.
TBI has also used a small number of mindless puppets and minions to defraud the TEFL public. Colm O’Mahony has now been caught using around 10 different aliases on several different forums (eg. this blog, Dave’s ESL cafe, Living in Indonesia Forum- hi, Jef Dam, Tilly Puspita, Napolean Complex etc etc.) This, mind you, is a man who quit TBI himself months before the end of his contract, so why he now promotes them (apart from his closeness with Matthew France, Luke’s close associate) has never made sense.
Thanks to the tech-savvy supporter of one of our supporters we have also been able to prove that someone at the Jakarta Japanese school has been posting multiple anti-Cameron rants and attacks along with attempts to defend Luke, Binsar and TBI. This teacher was- suprise, surprise- also close to Matthew, Colm and Luke. This coward posted around 40 vicious attacks- including on D****, a former TBI Bekasi who he had never even met (but she had criticized TBI, so that makes her a target for these cyber bullies). As soon as the ISP of “Don’tBelievetheHype”, “MentalNutJobs” and even a resurrected “Michelle” were all shown to be a single user on the JJS sever at Tangerang, this coward disappeared and stopped pretending to be multiple people, all enraged with us. Thanks to our supporter for unmasking this liar and professional troll.
These professional trolls have lied hundreds of times and have posted info about people they don’t even know- but, revealingly, Luke Preece always does know their targets. He is the obvious kingpin of the whole racket. Luke knew who D**** was, but the JJS teacher had never met her. The common link in every case is Luke. As we have said from Day One, this whole campaign against us and this blog is orchestrated by Preece, using an army of mindless British flunkies to do his bidding. In some cases Luke got them visas to remain in Indonesia without a degree, and other perks were dangled periodically, so really they are just liars for rent. The TBI trolls: another disgraceful part of a bottom-feeder language school. Unless you are the kind of person who trusts Fox News when it reports that Obama is a Muslim Socialist with a fake birth certificate, you probably can ignore anything Luke, Matthew, Colm or the JJS troll say from now on.
