WD Apology (10) – The Freedom of The Internet

witchyounground

Part 10 of The Witch Doctor’s apology on behalf of My Black Cat’s recent outburst concerns the possibility of an attack on freedom of speech on a massive scale.

Scroll down and read my two previous posts, please do. And after you have read them think about this:

There are moves afoot which, if they creep to fruition, will not allow me to place links or quotations on this blog unless I have ensured that I have a right to do so for each and every link and/or I have paid the appropriate fee to the source of each and every link.

If it became possible for this creep to progress, it would effectively paralyse the blogosphere, citizen journalism, make criminals of us all, and result in expensive fines for of many of us.

Above all, it has the potential of curtailing freedom of speech.

And furthermore, The Witch Doctor’s Test would come into being.

And My Black Cat would be jumping up and down screeching “CONSPIRACY! CONSPIRACY!” I TOLD YOU SO!

Just as a taster, a reader has pointed to an article yesterday in the business section of the BBC website. She wondered how relevant it was to The Creep that The Witch Doctor keeps wittering on about.

You bet it’s relevant.

MURDOCH SIGNALS END OF FREE NEWS

IS FREE NEWS A THING OF THE PAST?

It concerns the media company “News Corp” which owns The Times, Sun, Wall Street Journal and New York Times.

Rupert Murdoch is chief executive.

The newspaper industry is worried about its future due to the recession (less advertising revenue) and the huge cultural change that The Freedom of the Internet has brought with it.

News Corp is going to charge for access to its digital newspapers and Murdoch hopes to lead the way for all newspapers to follow likewise.

And there is much more going on behind the scenes.

That is why The Witch Doctor now, when she remembers, refers to the internet as ‘THE FREEDOM OF THE INTERNET” or “THE FREEDOM OF THE WORLD WIDE WEB”

As in “The Kingdom of……

Or “The Fiefdom of……

And now “The Freedom of…..

This period of internet freedom must not turn out to be but a tiny window in the history of mankind.

It should not be taken for granted.

More soon………
