CiF = “Censorship is Final”

The Guardian, today, is featuring an article by European editor Ian Traynor claiming, per the headline:

Unfortunately, Mr. Traynor’s entire piece is built around unsourced quotes and other dubious attributions, is written largely in the passive voice, and overall constitutes yet another propaganda offering thinly disguised as a news item.  When poster ‘MaxOvon’ pointed out some of these journalistic deficiencies (to describe them charitably), her/his comment was deleted within minutes.

This sort of heavy-handed ‘moderation’ has become standard operating procedure for the Guardian as it endeavours to silence participants who challenge its corrupt and fundamentally dishonest approach to the Ukraine crisis.
