Standaard De grootste grap van de VS

Op dezelfde dag dat Julien Assange door de Britse politie is aangehouden en Wikileaks nog altijd van alle kanten aangevallen wordt door de overheid van de VS en andere overheden, werd bekend gemaakt dat de VS de World Press Freedom day zal organiseren.....Ik vind het op zijn zachts gezegd ronduit achterlijk dat ze zoiets kunnen doen. het is wel leuk om te lezen wat ze erover te zeggen hebben.

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.

Citaat:
The theme for next year’s commemoration will be 21st Century Media: New Frontiers, New Barriers. The United States places technology and innovation at the forefront of its diplomatic and development efforts. New media has empowered citizens around the world to report on their circumstances, express opinions on world events, and exchange information in environments sometimes hostile to such exercises of individuals’ right to freedom of expression. At the same time, we are concerned about the determination of some governments to censor and silence individuals, and to restrict the free flow of information. We 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.
