@emucentral: Ok, since you are calling me a liar, I'd rather not talk to you. Feel free to call me a liar, just tell others, not me. When I post, you can come behind me and shout "LIAR LIAR!", and I will see this as a warning to others, not a message to me.|

@ everyone else:
I have observed and tested the situation at CNN. Absolutely there is an automatic filter which holds some posts completely for moderator review, in some cases it withholds only flagged paragraphs. Finally, items successfully posted do in fact disappear. This is testable. I tested it. You can to.
You can find some of my posts at CNN, as I said, I reposted successfully in some cases. You can not find the ones that have been deleted by the censors. I have posted and reposted after deletions, but some of what I've said still is not available where I posted it at CNN. You can probably find it in my FBI file.
Beyond the censorship of posts, even non-posters can see that CNN is entirely pro-west. It is absolutely a propaganda machine that turns unknown dissidents into Freedom Fighters and Freedom Fighters into terrorists. We hear endlessly about Neda and a corrupt election in a country that is not our business. At the same time, our Puppet in Afghanistan kills more voters, and fakes a higher percentage of ballots, but the story has been killed. It's in Washington's interest to repeat Neda's story endlessly months after it became old news. Afghanistan is fresh, and it's our business, but massive corruption, faked elections, and murder in Afghanistan is somehow not interesting to CNN.
Why is every story in America's interest repeated endlessly? Why can't I read any good news from Iran, or China, or Russia, or North Korea. I know good things happen there too, why does CNN only broadcast the bad things? It almost seems like CNN is simply trying to bend perceptions against anyone Washington doesn't like. It seems a little biased.
In addition to controlling our perception by showing us what they want us to see, there is also spin. They even play dramatic music and script the dialog as carefully as a big budget film.
If a thousand are killed in Iraq, they may tell me a few times. That's news.
If a few are killed in Iran, they tell me a thousand times. That's propaganda.
