Even "Readers comments" are severely restricted in the national media.




 The government propaganda officers (P O's) are even targeting "readers comments".







It is incredible although not surprising, the way comment from readers is being restricted in the national press, in respect of the current conflict in Gaza.
All too frequently, the news paper publishes a story but provides no facility for the reader to offer any comment. Where such a facility is provided, it is clear that the "Comments for this story are now closed" has been applied soon after publication of the article.
It is as if the media are acting under instructions to restrict comment or criticism on the matter. Perhaps the government propaganda officers (P O's) who sit permanently on the editorial boards of our newspapers, have something to hide or are trying to prevent the growing tide of criticism being spread to an even wider audience.
