Mainstream Media Censoring Wall Street Protests
The mainstream media is refusing to cover the Wall Street 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.
Governments have ordered YouTube to take down protest videos.
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.
