Largest Protests Ever go Unreported in Mainstream Media
Governments are cracking down and interfering with the people's right to know. This is a frightening development which should concern all of us who value democracy.
You may not know it, but some of the largest demonstrations ever seen are taking place presently in several locations around the world, and the reason you may not know about it is because governments from the U.K. to the U.S.A., from Brazil to Russia and a host of other nations, along with a compliant media, are making great efforts to make certain you stay uninformed. There has been a complete absence of information about these events coming from ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, Fox, MSNBC and even NPR.
Youtube caves to government pressure
Youtube is complying with requests from governments, particularly in the the U.K. and the U.S., to censor and remove videos of demonstrations. The latest example is Youtube's removal of footage of the British Constitution Group Lawful Rebellion protest, which attempted to civilly arrest Judge Michael Peake at Birkenhead county court. The British government simply does not want videos of such demonstrations to go viral.
Four hundred thousand demonstrators marched through the streets of Montreal recently, but there was virtually no mention of it in America's mainstream media. It was if it had never happened. Such censorship in a supposedly free society is extremely dangerous to the democratic process. When the media fails to report these events, we are well on the road to losing our freedom.
