Interesting stuff. The McCanns were in Parliament yesterday. Putting forward their arguements for the introduction of an EU Amber card alert system for the abduction of children.
So far so uncontroversial.
It was agreed that they would give one TV interview which would be pooled under the auspices of the Parliament's broadcasting service.
The interview went out on various local stations in the UK, but was blocked from going out across the board under the instruction of the Parliament's broadcasting co-ordinating committee headed by the Parliament's head of press, one Jaime Duch.
The reason, because the Portugese MEPs complained.
I have been roundly castigated and bellowed at in public by those who are running EuroparlTV for suggesting that having parliamentary officials on the editorial board threatens freedom of the press and freedom of speech.
Well in which case explain this example of censorship.
Anyone want to send me this paper?
