Media, Internet and Government Censoring Wall Street Protest?

Mainstream Media Censoring Wall Street Protests

The mainstream media is refusing to cover the Wall Street protests.

Google, Yahoo and Twitter are both alleged to be censoring the protests.

As an op-ed in China Daily notes, the “US media blackout of protest is shameful”.

While China is hardly a bastion for free speech or a free media, the pot is in this case correct in calling the kettle black.

Government Censorship?

Governments have ordered YouTube to take down protest videos.

America has engaged in massive censorship in recent years, and the elites have openly pined to crack down even more … and to emulate China. For example, Senator Joe Lieberman lamented:

Right now, China can disconnect parts of its Internet in times of war. We need to be able to do that too.

Is the U.S. government censoring coverage of the Wall Street protests? Only time will tell.

    The article you link to was written in May, before the Wall St. protests started.

    “And the government has allegedly ordered YouTube to take down Wall Street protest videos.”

    You lose credibility when your links have anchored text like that. Clicking through I find the article to be about something going on in Britain, and not even one single mention of the wall street protests. Nothing at all. Which means you were mistaken about what was at the business end of that link, or you just didn’t check the link yourself. Either way, it damages our position and helps our enemies.

    Big media will start covering the protests as soon as they can cconfirm that it has been totally infiltrated and neutralized.

    They’re just playing a waiting game to see how they are going to spin this to their advantage. Kapish?
