Good Article

NY Times ( has this excellent article on Chinese Censorship and its comparison to Soviet Censorship and propoganda.

I am surprised (or not!?) to see a great parallel between this and the proposed law by the UPA govt. to impose severe restrictions on the media in the country. Free press, the fourth pllar of a democracy, is being put on a leash, a muzzle...not a very healthy situation. Thankfully, due to the free press, ipso facto, such a law is unlikely to pass muster.

Long live freedom of speech!
