OSCE: US, UK among most censored countries:
A representative for freedom of the media at the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) said that governments across the world are posing a threat to internet freedom. The governments in the US and UK, known for their willingness to blame their political partners for violating human rights and freedoms, have turned out to be particular tough in suppressing internet freedom. Internet freedom has become one of the most acute challenges faced by nations worldwide. For some governments control over online content has become a kind of an obsession. The Arab Spring uprising and the ‘Occupy Wall Street’ protests have proved that the Internet has long become a very effective tool, even a weapon. The question is who uses it.
