I am posting this here for two reasons. The first being a little test maggie and I are conducting.
A test to see if Google blogger is excluding blogs for material posted.
The second reason is regarding Maggie's experience at the CBC website.
An experience in media censorship. I have been at the CBC news site also.
And noticed the exact same phenomena Maggie describes in her post.
"Something happened yesterday, around lunchtime. First I couldn't access the site - it was very slow. After that it seemed only comments which extolled Israel's virtues were allowed. The number of posts supporting the inhumane actions on the part of the Israeli admin went through the roof. None of my submitted posts were printed. Also, the time lag increased - where before it was usually a few minutes before a rash of new posts appeared, it began to become more like 20 minutes, or 30 minutes before a small number of posts - all supporting the bloodshed and indeed some cheering it on - showed up on screen."
Two of us noticing the same activity at the same time? I submitted about 8 posts that day, 5 didn't make it. They were my opinion, backed up with links. I had links to video clips, news items etc..Twice I tried to submit links to the interview posted here, and another link to an article showing the difference between the Israeli military and the Hamas resistance. CBC censored these links.
What annoyed me about this? They were links for information purposes. CBC is not supposed to be sensoring Canadian opinion, nor are they supposed to be engaged in biased media presentations. Yet they are. So Friends of CBC, you are not getting any more donations from my family. I want real unbiased media.
