Media Deceptions: ‘Stop the Bill’ Protest Edition

Let’s compare raw footage of Melbourne’s rally with top headlines from Australia’s corporate media.

We have seen it time and time again: Dinosaur corporate media conglomerates regularly distort the truth, and in turn, create the popular opinion of the masses they pretend to reinforce.

Reinforcing consensus opinion was once the traditional role of the media. This was before mass social engineering helped to create false, manufactured opinions of the world.

This is why TOTT News was born: To provide Australians with a genuine alternative to the soulless propaganda machine that does not have the best interests of the people at heart.

As protests have increased across Australia to oppose biofascist authoritarianism in recent months, yet again, the media have been up to their old tricks. Particularly in Melbourne and Sydney.

At last weekend’s mass protest, the mainstream media were not welcome on-the-ground, as protesters unleashed a wave of bottled emotions at reporters, forcing them to leave. Similar scenes were witnessed previously at Brisbane’s rally, as the media were confronted for their coverage.

The media have an immense spell on the larger populous of Australia, and these people know it. They are the glue that holds all fabricated grand narratives together. How quickly things could change overnight if they simply examined the other side of the story from an objectivist perspective.

Through this period, TOTT News has always reported the full and open story, allowing readers to watch the footage for themselves and make up their own minds on the events.

See the following for a recent example:
Melbourne freedom protest: What the TV didn’t show you

However, it is time someone calls the media out for their own coverage of events — beginning with awe-inspiring scenes witnessed at yesterday’s protest in Melbourne to ‘Stop the Bill’.

Let’s compare raw footage with top headlines from Australia’s ‘mainstream’ media yesterday/today.



Before having your mind distorted by the corporate viewpoint, take a look at some remarkable footage that has emerged highlighting the magnitude of the events.

Tens of thousands of citizens line the streets of Melbourne, outside of Parliament:

Drone footage shows the span of the crowd from an overhead perspective:

Now, after seeing these clips, let’s examine some of the lead stories from the media.



The Herald Sun is a daily newspaper based in Melbourne, Australia, published by The Herald and Weekly Times, a subsidiary of News Corp Australia. The local newspaper in the area.

What did they report yesterday afternoon following the protests?:

“More than 1,000 people”.

Perhaps this was just a mistake, and we would see a much more generous and accurate story in the next morning’s Sunday paper. See anything missing from this front page?

It seems the local newsroom in Melbourne must have missed the happenings in the CBD..

Hiding the Crowd?

Next, we find Channel 9 deliberately cutting out sections of the crowd for their headline story on the ‘Stop the Bill’ demonstrations. Take a look at the pictures included in this Tweet:

How do these shots compare to the raw footage you have watched above?

Intentional focus away..

It wasn’t only the TV outlets that were hard at work to downplay the size of the audience.

Countless newspapers and radio stations also highlighted irrelevant photos/sections of the crowd, while concluding that ‘a few thousand’ attended:

Was this photo above taken at 10am or something? focused on a single sign from the rally. Many outlets were outraged at the message behind a miniature gallows, and as always, highlighted one sign or banner for representation:

You wouldn’t even know that Channel 7 even made it to Parliament, as their leading story highlights the initial gathering before march at the State Library.

What is the result of this type of misleading coverage?


Here are a couple of examples:

Notice how David even criticises the media for reporting the numbers as “large”.

Perhaps they will report 100 people next time to please their cult-like audience.

Make no mistake, this is a sentiment echoed across the realm of popular society in the aftermath.

Once again, returning to the original points in this post, it is very easy for the media to claim they are reinforcing the popular opinion of the masses — when they create the opinion themselves.

Poor David (and others) have no idea that it was much more than ‘1,000 people’ outside Parliament yesterday, because the media intentionally hides the truth from the public.

It is time we all Turn Off The Television, unfollow their accounts and seek modes of information that aren’t tainted and attempting to skew our reality with simulated falsehoods.

Please share this Talk Of The Town piece with any Australian who NEEDS to read it.

  1. Top work, Ethan…best coverage of this huge Melbourne rally in Australia, as far as I can see. TOTT really IS Australia’s Front Line.

    I take this opportunity to announce the latest Quaxling of the Week, appropriately (as I am in Brisbane for two weeks) a Queenslander, although any genuine Aussies among you (and that would include all TOTT Members I should imagine) would happily disown this treasonous prat. It is Dr Chris Perry, head of the Qld branch of the AMA. Dr Perry stated recently on TV: “The unvaccinated won’t be able to hide, you won’t be able to get a doctor to sign off on an exemption…doctors will be audited, every one of their exemptions will be looked at very carefully…” You would be stretched to find a nastier little totalitarian lackey of evil Big pHARMa than this individual. Let’s hope he practices what he preaches and will be about to take his booster, if he hasn’t already. In which case, enjoy your award while you can, doctor.

  2. The dinosaur media is on it’s last legs and soon will be a thing of the past, but it’s replacement could be a whole lot worse if it’s allowed to embed itself into society, of course I’m talking about the virtual reality world coming into view, the metaverse or something similar!

  3. Soo Soo Proud of Victorians, we live in aq time of ACTION, the Crowds were “AMAZING” Get the Haqnging rope out Dandrews you are dead man walking !

  4. Be good to name and shame all these fuckers on one website with all the shit they have said to prob up the narrative and all the real truth to compare – its as easily done as this great piece Ethan. We shall never forget these traitors.

  5. Good comments from everyone and as usual Ethan, well done. But this is far from over now. It seems that Furher Dan has not given up just yet and going in for the killing. It also seems that crossbencher Rod Barton, is about to cave in. And if he does, we can certainly kiss all freedoms good bye and welcome in another one of China’s overseas territory ( run by the Papal System ).

    As I have previously mentioned and was predicted, lawyers, judges, senators, have become corrupted, and yielding to bribery, and now allowing themselves to be bought and sold.

    The corruption that prevails, is beyond the power of the human pen to describe. Every day brings fresh revelations of political strife, bribery, and fraud. Every day brings its heart-sickening record of violence and lawlessness, of indifference to human suffering, of brutal, fiendish destruction of human life.

    Every day testifies to the increase of insanity, murder, and suicide. Who can doubt that satanic agencies are at work among men with increasing activity to distract and corrupt the mind and defile and destroy the body?

    This is indeed the world we live in. Will it go back to what it was prior to the con? I would love to be proven wrong but very much doubt it. We really need to brace for more and find shelter in God alone.

  6. I don’t think the media is getting the message at protests, your days are over. I’m going to start taking eggs with me and pelt them next time. Then they will retreat…..or a classic cream pie in the face always sets the message straight, as Bill Gates surely knows!

    Secondly, I keep thinking if we are going to be segregated society – aka Demolition Man – we should make it the better society…bring back mosh pits and festivals, we can come together and show them what humanity looks like.

    Lots of teachers, FIFO, cops, doctors and nurses all looking for jobs now. Wouldn’t take much to come together – pool all our tax money together and start buying up infrastructure…(I mean why are we paying Tax anymore?)……after it collapses, we can start with a school and hospital…
