Politistaten rører på seg - Bergens Tidende
Beslaget av upublisert kildemateriale hos en filmskaper er sommerens prinsipielle grøsserhistorie. PSTs atferd og domstolenes argumenter i saken er en studie i hvordan angstens retorikk er i ferd med å snevre inn rommet for ytrings- og pressefrihet i Norge. Og grunnen til at både Steiro, jeg og alle mine kolleger bør være nervøse.

Why China’s Propagandists Love the Internet
The Chinese Communist Party has always seen propaganda, known as “thought work,” as key to controlling society. Coordinated by a standing member of the Politburo, propaganda reaches down through every layer of the Chinese state and society, with the military, education, and the arts all mobilized as vehicles for the dissemination of centrally determined messages. But today, China’s propagandists are facing new challenges. One is ideological. In an age when the Communist Party is curating a form of capitalism, what does the party stand for? How should it secure loyalty? What sort of central message should it project? The second is technological. The Internet is designed to challenge centralized control and accelerate horizontal communication, whereas the Chinese state remains a rigidly vertical power structure. - Gary Rawnsley, Foreign Policy

Hong Kong Free Press first reported the block on July 13. According to blockedinchina.net, access to Telegram’s web-version has been blocked from servers located in Beijing, Shenzhen, Inner Mongolia, Heilongjiang and Yunnan provinces in China. - Tetyana Lokot, Global Voices Advocacy

Malaysia Drops the Pretense of Not Censoring the Internet
The UK-based news website the Sarawak Report was blocked in Malaysia on July 19, 2015 upon orders from the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC). The site remains inaccessible from within the country unless users access the site on their mobile phones or via a VPN. The MCMC ordered Malaysia’s Internet service providers to take the site down after it published news on the bank transfer allegations, though reports suggest the block has been unevenly enforced. The MCMC's rationale for their order was that the site has published “unverified information” and posed a threat to “national security.”

This is the first time Malaysia has publicly acknowledged blocking a political website, and it is particularly notable because the case strikes at the heart of political corruption within the country.
