western governments do impose censorship. d notices i am led to understand are
couriered around media institutions, are a form of collective censorship or intent
to bury news. they are all guilty of this, worldwide to a greater or lesser degree.
uk censorship for example regarding the trafigura toxic waste gag order against the
guardian c.2009. how many of the general public know anything about this?
with regards to the banning due to non payment, i will give the ofcom documentation
and ruling looking at.
'Thing is, unless you can proffer evidence that the Independent Regulator OFCOM has
been nobbled and has somehow started a programme of censorship, I will have to rely
on the compelling evidence so presented in the public records. All else is opinion.'
considering this is a work in progress
which is unfolding around a bigger issue namely increased presence through the straits,
it is in my opinion part of a collective effort towards a standoff.
'Like I said, perhaps the conspiracy here is how Iran plays a game to perpetuate the
victim status. They’ll pay the fine and be back on the air in a couple of weeks,
but only after they’ve had a good round of complaining that somehow they are being
hard done by. They’ll get a few more supports, the curious interested and maybe harden
a few hearts of those convinced that the institutions of the West are corrupt and bad
and the Islamic Republic is all that is good in the world. '
i will consider your statement above. i very much doubt presstv will be back on the sky box
any time soon. one just never knows!
with regards to your last sentence it takes all sorts. there will always be extremists
no matter what religious/political/financial arrangement they operate by.
p.s. my opinion is i am denied this choice of broadcast on the sky platform. i surf all
14 news channels. nhk world news japan got pulled for some reason sometime after the
tsunami/reactors disaster occured.presstv now. i have some old sat kit i can use and i am
in the process of buying a receiver from a popular appliance store. i certainly won't take
the chance it won't happen again by having an alternative method of receiving transmission.
