I was wondering what the members thoughts are on things like D notices. I always thought the media was legally bound to follow this form of censorship but I now understand the media is not legally bound by them but they are normally followed by news editors and producers etc.
I found a story the other day that has a D notice on it so the BBC etc will not touch it. This story is not a matter of security or anything like that it is totally politically motivated. Had it not been for the "alternative media" I would never have know about it.
I can understand why they could be needed sometimes but I sure this sort of politically motivated censorship is more common than most people think.
