  • Grace Tame hints that the wolves on her new book cover refer to media bosses
  • Kerry Stokes, Rupert Murdoch and Peter Costello hinted they were the ‘wolves’

Grace Tame has hinted that the wolves on the cover of her upcoming memoir represent three media bosses she’s come to battle with.

Ms Tame, an activist and 2021 Australian of the Year, previewed her book’s cover on her social media last week ahead of its September 27 launch.

She revealed that she illustrated the cover herself with a $1 ballpoint pen from Woolworths.

At the bottom left of the complex design are three wolves, two growling at her face and one bowing its head to the ground.

“Three guesses who the wolves on my book cover are, lol,” she said under a photo of Kerry Stokes, Rupert Murdoch and Peter Costello posted on Twitter by Crikey writer Bernard Keane.

The trio’s media empires – Seven West Media, News Corp and Nine – regularly report on Ms. Tame’s activities and she often clashes with them.

Ms. Tame targeted Mr. Murdoch on Twitter in May, criticizing News Corp’s coverage of the federal election.

She complained that 59 percent of Australia’s national and metropolitan news media was owned by Mr Murdoch and 23 percent by Nine.

“Between these two companies alone, 82 percent of the total readership is subliminally influenced by a right-wing bias,” she wrote.

“There’s bad politics, and then there’s blatant abuse. Corruption.

It is a curious coincidence that the chosen leadership style of a man whose career began in an industry that often benefits from ‘planned obsolescence’ is to destroy the politics of the crew. That is, failure by design.’

Former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd even updated on News Corp’s treatment of Ms Tame, supporting the activist on Twitter after the Courier Mail published an article questioning her criticism of Scott Morrison.

“There goes Murdoch trying to bully Grace Tame like they’ve gotten so many votes for progress over the years,” he wrote.

They whine about ‘abolishing culture’, but they will try to cancel anyone who doesn’t share their reactionary worldview. We need more diversity, not less.’
