    “201” censored by ComCent 

    “Satirical animated TV show “South Park” beeped out the words Prophet Muhammad and plastered its Wednesday episode with the word “CENSORED” after being issued a grim warning by a U.S. Muslim group.
    The irreverent comedy show on Comedy Central also substituted a controversial image seen last week of the Prophet Muhammad in a bear outfit with one of Santa Claus in the same costume.”

      I’m glad I happened to be home at 11 to watch it last night – they didn’t replay it as they usually do and I believe that it’s not available to stream online either… sketch

      Just watched some of the “Super Best Friends” episode and it’s hilarious that they actually use the exact same settings drawn the same way (in the last nights episode), only minus Muhammad

    Google to China-“No more censorship!” 

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/google/6977627/Google-will-quit-China-unless-web-censorship-ends.html

    In a surprise announcement, the group issued a veiled attack at Chinese censors and said it was prepared to shut down its operations there entirely if the authorities do not allow it to create an unfiltered search engine.

    “We have decided we are no longer willing to continue censoring our results on Google.cn… and so over the next few weeks we will be discussing with the Chinese government the basis on which we could operate an unfiltered search engine within the law, if at all. We recognize that this may well mean having to shut down Google.cn, and potentially our offices in China.”

      China forms “internet addiction re-education camp”

      http://www.wired.com/magazine/2010/01/ff_internetaddiction/

      “The Qihang camp promised to cure children of so-called Internet addiction, an ailment that has grown into one of China’s most feared public health hazards. The camp’s brochure claimed that an estimated 80 percent of Chinese youth suffered from it. Fifteen-year-old Deng Senshan seemed to be among them. He was once a top student, but his grades had plummeted over the past couple of years, and he had stopped exercising almost completely. He spent most of his time playing games like World of Warcraft at Internet cafés or on his desktop computer. The Chinese news media was filled with terrifying stories of WOW-crazed kids dropping dead or killing their parents, and Deng Fei and Zhou Juan worried that they might lose their only son to a technological demon they barely understood. So they were lured in by the camp’s pledge to end his “bad behavior.””

      Yet when the place finally came into view, it wasn’t the traditional school-like setting Deng Fei had imagined. Instead, it looked more like a poorly tended jailhouse — decrepit three-story concrete building, barred windows, overgrown bushes. In the distance, through a field of high razor-edged grass, a factory smokestack spewed a black cloud. On a double basketball court, a gang of camouflage-clad teenagers were in the middle of a sweaty training session in the subtropical heat. Counselors, dressed in black shirts with military-police patches on their chests, stood watch.

      “At home, kids are much too comfortable,” he responded, and told her that hardship was part of the cure. “You don’t beat the kids, do you?” she asked. The man waved away the question, assuring her, “We use only psychological treatment here.”

      “# 6 The Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act”

      Is a big one too. AT&T employee already admitted almost a year ago that he was responsible for installing a splitter that split all telecommunications and internet traffic (at AT&T) to a room that was only accessible if you were with the NSA. Sure enough our douche of a president gave the cell phone companies IMMUNITY “for fear of bankruptcy”!

      Number 25 really is perfect at number 25 because to me, it totally sums up the top 24.
