Netizens are now Journalists! | A year of blogging, threats and silence

Netizens are now Journalists! |  A year of blogging, threats and silence | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

In this, the year of the protester, the world has become increasingly aware of the value of citizen reporting. From Tahrir to Wall Street, news has been sustained by tweets and amateur video, and creators of that media held in regard by both producers and consumers of mainstream media. The "who is a journalist?" conversations of five years ago seem suddenly quaint in light of the brave citizen reporting, emerging from Syria and Egypt.

...

Though some countries, such as Vietnam, have gotten away with levying irrelevant charges at netizens, as the lines between journalist and blogger continue to blur, such games will cease to be possible, and authorities will be exposed for what they are:   .. S-C-A-R-E-D  !  !  !

Bahrain refuses journalists seeking to cover protest anniversary | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

Bahrain has turned down several journalists for visas to visit the Gulf nation on the one-year anniversary of sweeping anti-government protests next Tuesday, telling them it has gotten too many requests.   ....   “This is the hallmark of a repressive regime -- not allowing journalists into the country,” said Brian Dooley of the nonprofit Human Rights First. He was turned down for a visa in January. “The government is only fueling suspicions that they don’t want the rest of the world to see what’s going to happen.”

Bahrain Regime controlled TV censoring the broadcast at Salmaniya after the crackdown!

Reporters are the angels of justice, and must be honest. This is what we call press honour.

However, here the picture is totally and too shocking.

Here is how to make a perfect crime against a country and innocents

It is just like you've never seen on Cinema.

CNN, BBC, and many other reporters were banned many times from entering bahrain. To make sure that there won't be flaws in their plans of censoring the truth about their crimes. However, it is said that the string of deception is short.

Poorly trained Reporters are made dishonest enough to take part in censoring the truth, thanks to the regime.

This means one thing . The BTV, which is a regime TV, is filthy.

Betrayal is bad and country betrayal is worse. This is how the regime makes thugs.
Patriots should get their country on track of democracy against tyrants and their servants.

Human rights ? press rights ? World Medical Association ? terror fighters ? believers in justice ?

Can we consider the regime as terrorist ? criminal ?

Humanity is calling.

For Justice and love of humanity shall prevail.

Share and re-upload if you can't help in any other way to make justice prevail. Or at least don't forget to pray for justice.

[BTV has lost ALL journalistic credibility with this stunt!]
