In U.K., Freedom of Speech and Press Hang in the Balance
Written by Alex Newman
The debate is focused on the extent to how far people should have the right to express strong/extreme views in social media. Because many people use Facebook, Twitter, and so on, many people affected by tragedy can and have read comments by others that are considered offensive.
That is a completely different kettle of fish compared to expressing your views on, say, the government. We have the right to protest against whatever we want - even against that whole issue over to what extent posting on social media should be accepted or not.
You want to talk about denial of freedom of expression? Go ask a Chinese dissident or someone in Saudi Arabia who cannot criticise their regimes without being killed.
You truly are clutching at straws.
