There is a reason they weren't featured in the media as news stories...there's little to no truth behind any of these headlines. If there was an ounce of it the major media would be all over it. About the only place you'll hear these headlines is on "Air America".

Give me a break. Thanks for your work on Debian, stick to it and leave politics alone.

Well, I'm looking forward to reading about any evidence or indications you might have that there's "little to no truth behind any of these headlines". I, personally, do not have the means or time to do any elaborate investigations about whether or not your claims are true.

The reason I posted the list is that it's a list of stories which were mostly ignored by media (for whatever reasons), and I don't like that. I don't like any form of censorship. The media reports on all kinds of crap all day long, so there has to be enough time to report on the above issues, too.

Note that I don't say that I agree or disagree with the contents of the headlines, I just don't like the fact that some rather important headlines are censored while others are not.

Give me a break. Thanks for your work on Debian, stick to it and leave politics alone.

Thanks for your comment, but please stop telling me what I'm supposed to do. Thank you.

Uwe.
