Yeah, eh? Mysterious, ain't it? ;-)
You know, there are many kinds of censorship, and we are getting one kind in the North American media. It's the kind of censorship that is accomplished by choosing to report and emphasize certain stories, while selectively ignoring others, and it doesn't just happen around the issues being discussed here.
It's a very clear policy, and one that is practiced pretty consistently by those who own the large media chains in North America. They decide what is "news" and what isn't. That is how you control public perceptions in a supposedly free society.
Peace - "Has anyone here read the book?"
No.... But I have read "How To Pick Up Fast Girls in Sudbury". I haven't had a chance to see if it's any good, though, because I never go to Sudbury if I can possibly help it. ;-)
