AT&T Censors Pearl Jam — Another Reason for Net Neutrality




After concluding our Sunday night show at Lollapalooza, fans informed us that portions of that performance were missing and may have been censored by AT&T during the "Blue Room" Live Lollapalooza Webcast.When asked about the missing performance, AT&T informed Lollapalooza that portions of the show were in fact missing from the webcast, and that their content monitor had made a mistake in cutting them. (Pearl Jam)

During the performance of “Daughter” the following lyrics were sung to the tune of Pink Floyd’s “Another Brick in the Wall” but were cut from the webcast:- “George Bush, leave this world alone.” (the second time it was sung); and- “George Bush find yourself another home.”

Wait until you have to pay to go to sites you use to visit before for free.
Censorship and freedom of speech you will soon find out is not free.
They want to shut down dissent by the citizens and will not stop until they do.
They have already taken over the News Media, both in print and over the air waves.
They read your mail and listen in on your phone calls.
The last and newest form of communication is of course the Internet.
Now they want to silence those who would dissent from there tyranny and spread the word about it around the world.
D Day is just around the corner now and Martial Law will shock the shit out of everyone.
It will be like Shock and Awe that we saw in the Iraq invasion.
Get ready folks...
God Bless.
