It has been a good year for the Kangaroo Court of Australia media sites which have grown strongly mostly on the back of the YouTube channel. It is the support of you the readers and viewers who underpin the work the KCA media sites do shining a light on corruption and other issues.
As old media fail, with their bias towards various political parties and advertisers, the need for independent media has never been more important.
In the past, there has never been a business model allowing independent media to be financially viable and most independent media you read or watch do it on the smell of an oily rag and out of their own pockets. But as outlined below the KCA media sites are starting to become self-sufficient.
The KCA media sites are now in a position where they have some financial stability which is important to make sure that I can keep them going on a permanent basis. The money raised still puts me below the average wage but based on the growth over the last year, and especially since I set up a Patreon account, I think I can grow the KCA media sites enough over the next few months to guarantee their long-term future.
In August 2021 the YouTube Channel had less than 1000 subscribers (It’s free to subscribe) and it was not making any money from ads. Since then, I have focused on growing the Channel and it now has over 19,100 subscribers and it forms the financial foundation, via Patroen and a small amount of ad revenue, to allow me to publish articles and videos. The KCA media sites also raise money via PayPal donations and merchandise sales.
Below is my 2022 Christmas and New Year video:
Last year I spoke about the arrest warrant and it is still outstanding. Last year I wrote:
In September I was sentenced to 10 months jail in the NSW Supreme Court for contempt of court on behalf of Kerry Stokes’ Seven Network and Seven West Media and an arrest warrant was issued. I live in Queensland and they will have to arrest me and extradite me to NSW which I will fight and I know I have strong grounds to fight it. There has been no attempt to arrest me at this point but it will happen at some stage.
That is the reality of being a journalist in Australia and writing about corrupt judges and business people like Kerry Stokes but I have no regrets about shining a light on them via the articles I publish on this website. (Click here to read more)
The irony is that during the Ben Roberts-Smith defamation case which concluded a few months ago, with the judgment reserved, Seven West Media and Kerry Stokes were accused of being involved in an attempt to pervert the course of justice.
Lawyers and barristers for Nine Entertainment told the court that Seven West Media and Stokes paid for lawyers for Ben Roberts-Smith’s witnesses and that the witnesses had colluded to give false evidence. Kerry Stokes and Seven’s directors could be in jail before I’m ever arrested.
If I was arrested and they tried to extradite me one of my defences would be that it would breach the Queensland Human Rights Act 2019 as I was, and would be in the future, denied a fair trial in NSW.
