Censors crack down on bloggers and surfers


Repressive regimes are increasingly highlighting blogs and websites as a threat to be shut down or censored, according to the annual report (PDF 1.36MB) from Reporters Without Borders (RSF) published for World Press Freedom Day.

The report said that websites, personal web pages and blogs in some countries have become the only source of opposition or independent news.

But the censors are watching and preventing access to such sites, and routinely filter, monitor or delete material they consider inappropriate. Censors crack down on bloggers and surfers - vnunet.com
