Former Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has called for a major government inquiry into the tight ownership of Australian media by Rupert Murdoch's News Corp, securing more than 46,000 signatures on a petition after just two days. Rudd, who was prime minister from 2007 to 2010 and briefly in 2013, filed a petition calling on parliament to set up a royal commission to investigate what he called the "abuse of media monopoly in Australia in particular by the Murdoch media". "The truth is Murdoch has become a cancer, an arrogant cancer on our democracy," Rudd said in a video posted on Twitter on Saturday, urging people to sign the petition, which also called for recommendations to boost media diversity.
