Censorship of blogs?

Weblogs will be regulated soon in an attempt to prevent blogs revealing important news that would otherwise not be reported in the conventional way. This demonstrates the leanings of newspapers and their owners. Blogs are an essential part of reporting life nowadays. It makes subjects that are difficult and unpopular for governments to answer much more difficult to bury.

The number of blogs is huge by comparison to the number of worldwide newspaper publications. They will never, ever be silenced. Look at the situation in China. Containment of knowledge is almost impossible there even if the authors risk severe punishments. Locked up for years and years for exposing the alleged unpalatable (to the Chinese government) truth.
