Erris's Journal: M$, AOL and Yahoo Import Chinese Email Filters to USA.

Journal by Erris

A few days ago, AOL, Microsoft and Yahoo started blocking Truthout newsletters. Today, Hotmail admitted to this blatant political censorship and and says they won't back down:

MSN Hotmail has supposedly "stated to [Truthout's] administrators that they are in fact 'throttling' and 'blocking' [Truthout] communications" and this is due to the organization's "'reputation'."

AOL is working to fix the problem but Yahoo is silent and user controls don't work to undo the damage. Who needs a free internet, when you have cable TV?
