U.S. to Host World Press Freedom Day in 2011


www.state.gov

The United States is pleased to announce that it will host UNESCO’s World Press Freedom Day event in 2011, from May 1 - May 3 in Washington, D.C. UNESCO is the only UN agency with the mandate to promote freedom of expression and its corollary, freedom of the press.
[...]
We [the United States] mark events such as World Press Freedom Day in the context of our enduring commitment to support and expand press freedom and the free flow of information in this digital age.

"Free" is a subjective term.
What a joke!

Haha I burst out laughing when I read that...


Yep, the best word is perhaps: Irony.

How to reconcile it with their demonstrable trend of NOT supporting Press Freedom haha.

But they justify it by saying "But look at all those other countries, and how bad it is there!"

LMAO!!!

What a complete joke. World press freedom, as we scream for (and ultimately get) the arrest of those exposing our dirty little secrets, criminality and corruption!

Kind of like Obama getting the Noble Peace prize as he EXPANDS the war machine and foreign conquests.

Alice in Wonderland, what's up is down, what's down is up, nothing is what it appears to be, .-scratching bewilderment...

Not to mention the following I JUST posted:

.www.abovetopsecret.com...

Yeah, keep trying to convince the masses around the globe what a shining example of "freedom" we are.


We are becoming the hypocritical laughing stock of the planet anymore.

That is utterly hilarious.

The U.S. hosting any kind of freedom day is laughable.

Unless its the "Freedom to get raped by your government in every way possible" Day.

I bet every network will gladly embrace this celebration. While the execs are laughing their butts off.

I don't know why everyone is complaining, this great news

You should celebrate the freedom of biased and controlled news, especially when most of today's news is not even news but commentary.

Think about this when people say that there's no propoganda on TV
Fox is right winged, MSNBC is left winged
It's mostly commentary not news, and since it leans left or right it's biased
so it's biased commentary

How is biased commentary not considered as propoganda?

So this is the world freedom of propoganda day
WOO HOOOO

BALLOONS!!!!!!

LOL perfect timing with the whole wikileaks debarcle. How can people be so stupid as to buy into this, especially at this time? Is this some ridiculous attempt to try and gain peoples trust? Seems more like they're trying to rub it in peoples faces. I seriously can't believe the majority of people still place their trust in this system, when it is so clearly geared to suit the few.

Where was this posted?
On National Lampoon's Website?

What a crock...

Could they be any more idiotic, stating something like this after arresting Assange?

For crying out loud! Who is running this sideshow?

This is unbelievable.

They're basicly just trolling now, mocking the truth.

Don't know if to laugh or cry, i think i'll do both at the same time... nah, must try to keep myself together or my wife may think that i've been drinking again... Ok, but there's still six months to this joke, and i think that wikileaks has released all cables by then... and what we've seen so far is only a tip of the iceberg, and of course the most sensitive things are still to come. People have six months to wake up and U.S. representatives make themselves ridiculing.

Are they mocking the public too? How do they expect us to take this seriously after what they've just done?
