Claiming Freedom Of The Press

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 19, 2014 in News & Opinion |

Freedom of the press is one thing, but the freedom of the reader often gets second place, when it even comes to mind.

Freedom of the press and humanity are the foundation of The Epoch Times; our beginnings hailed from a great need to provide uncensored news to a people immersed in propaganda and censorship in China.

I have no intention of playing down the ideals of The Epoch Times, their stance is something everyone should be proud of in a modern world where, despite the wide-ranging possibilities of technology, we are still hampered in the gathering of information by governments, by outdated laws and by those who do not wish us to see the whole picture.

The video in question is about the nurse – Nina Pham – who, following her work as a carer for Thomas Eric Duncan, contracted Ebola. If you believe the propaganda surrounding the disease, this is a world-wide problem, so why isn’t the information available world-wide? Why does a web site have to block some countries from viewing information about a matter which appears in every single newspaper?

Perhaps it is time that a few Western countries took a look at their copyright laws, at the restrictions imposed which, in such a case, restrict not just the Freedom of the Press, but also the Freedom of Information.
