DFP Press Release #2 - Anti-Democratic Media Censorship in LS

The management of the Weazel News Agency of Los Santos has declared to the DFP campaign staff, that they will not broadcast any advertisements in regards to democracy, political campaigns, elections, petitions or any other topics that they deem too "sensitive" or "controversial". 

 

It sounds like a chapter out of George Orwell's famous dystopian novel '1984'. A Weazel News employee gets called into the office of a Weazel News manager to be warned and disciplined for misconduct. Another gets screamed at over the radio. Their crimes? Publishing advertisements that promote free elections in Los Santos and advertising a political party. It is at this point that the Weazel News management must make a decision.

While at the beginning they thought they only had to reprimand one employee for the problem to go away, they are now facing several employees questioning the democratic values and morals of their management. Those seeking confrontation with their bosses to keep their journalistic integrity - and those too afraid to speak up against them. So they are left with no choice but to give an informal notice and warning to all employees. All employees are to refrain from publishing any advertisements that remotely have to do with democratic actions and public assembly. It is made clear to them that they are to ignore all of our future advertisement requests and that they will be watched closely.

But why all this? We have requested an official statement from Weazel News on this matter. And while the many journalists that we have talked to do not shy away from the question and openly tell us it is not allowed because the CEO and his managers must appease "the government", no management or employee is willing to give us a written statement with their name and reasoning on it.

While it is no secret that Weazel News's money printing machine does not run on quality journalism but advertisements, the connection between secretive "government officials" and the Weazel News management does raise many questions about the state of our democracy. We do support our free-thinking brothers and sisters at Weazel News and hope for their and our democracy's sake that censorship and oppressive behaviour will end soon.

We are yet to receive an official statement from Weazel News in regards to this matter and why they refuse to air political and democratic content. This press release is based on personal experiences since the launch of our campaign and Weazel News employee testimonies.

 

If you haven't already, please leave your signature on our petition to help us get free elections.
