Murdoch targets GetUp


GetUp has been targeted by Murdoch. They say it was lies. Typical. Those pesky lefties getting in the way of things! Damn democracy!
Our movement has been attacked in a malicious and misleading front page of the Courier Mail.
A group of scammers tested their stolen credit card numbers on our site, as they do on many sites across the web. We detected the fraud quickly and refunded the money within hours.
But in a ridiculous attempt to destroy GetUp's reputation just days out from the election, The Courier Mail splashed: "GETUP FRAUD SCAM!" across half their front page.
This is a blatant attempt to discredit and slander our movement, and threaten our ability to fundraise.
The best way to stop it, is to show them we won't be intimidated. Let's show them this will only power us to do more to take on the radical right-wing in this election, and on Day One of a new government.
Will you chip in to make the Murdoch Press swallow their lies? Contribute here.
