My dear readers, if sometime you wish to understand how it works a censorship on mass-media, well, I can show it right now as follow:
- Decide to write a "post" in a forum freely expressing your absolutely personal opinion about an event which is discussed, for instance, in an article of a newspaper (Notice: when I write "absolutely personal opinion" I mean that, even using a polite attitude, you are not going to follow the "main stream" and you are not using a "politically correct" attitude)
- Upload your post and hold on 5 to 30 minutes to see if it has been published. If not, this means that your post has been censored by moderators of the forum
- Then write another "post" using the "main stream" and "politically correct" language of the newspaper where you want to publish (Notice: for "main stream" and "politically correct" I mean that you are writing about something that the newspaper's editorial direction can find is matching with its editorial line)
- Again upload your post and hold on 5 to 30 minutes to see if it has been published. Don't worry and be sure that this time in less than 3 minutes you will see appearing your post. It is absolutely true, trust me.
Anyway, in the event you don't want (and you are right) to believe only to my opinion and you want to see a proof of this opinion, well, I am delighted to offer you one.
Herein you can find 2 posts I have tried to publish (this morning the first one and in the early afternoon the second one) on Italian web-site of Corriere della Sera (the oldest Italian newspaper) regarding an article I wished to comment some opinions. The web-site is Corriere.it. Since my posts were not following Corriere della Sera "main stream" and "politically correct" editorial line, they weren't published. Later, in the late afternoon, I wrote another post for the same web-site but this time following Corriere.it "main stream" and "politically correct" editorial line. Of course, this time, it has been published.
POST Nº 1
POST Nº 3
IMPORTANT NOTICE: The most probable reason because Corriere.it didn't publish my first post was because at the end of it I cite a journalistic source they don't like. The source is the web-site of Italian journalist Paolo Barnard. The second post was not published because was a complaint about the censorship they adopted on the first post.
